    • “Brilliant stay”

    • “Have arrived back home today after spending a week in this house for our holidays in Keswick. Can’t fault it, lovely cottage with everything we could need and right next to the town centre, perfect location. Clean and tidy and larger than expected inside. Only fault we had with the cottage is that the parking isn’t very good as there is only room for one car. (We had 2) Would stop here again, and definitely recommend for anyone who is looking to stay here. Thank you for a lovely week in your home :)”

    • “Just stayed at Fountain Cottage with my daughter and friends for a weekend. We were with a walking group so there was loads of lovely walks, the cottage was close to town so it was a great base to start off from. The cattage was very clean and had everything you needed to make our stay perfect. Lovely place yes would recommend this very large cottage.”

    • “Fantastic, close to town, one car park space.”

    • “Fantastic weekend in Fountain Cottage - Kitchen had everything we needed, lovely sitting room with ample chairs,tables, TV, games and brill Wifi connection. Only one Bathroom which is on the next floor but a lovely size with a fab shower then a very large double and twin bedroom and then the attic space holds another space with twin beds - stairs are quite steep so just take your time . Cottage has its own car space but is quite tight but it's fine and very handy use the back lane to the far left of the cottage as you look at it from the front and its then behind the large blue gate (not the lane closest to the cottage). The views from all rooms are beautiful , river greta is just outside the cottage as you start to walk into Keswick which is a nice 5-10 min walk, lake is then another 15 mins but longer as there is to much to see on the way........... Can not wait to go back and just hope I can stay at Fountain Cottage.”

    • “Nice house close to centre of town”

    • “Nice house with three good sized bedrooms. Kitchen had everything you needed, would recommend you take a sharp knife though. Living room now have two sofas which were very comfortable. Heater in living room very effective, got cool at night due to stone floors throughout the ground floor which were lovely. There is no garden to speak of. There is a large yard at the back that you share with three other houses. Large enough for 4 of us to sit out, but took our own camping chairs. 100 yards away is access to River Greta where children could play in the water. Pebbly beach area as well. Parking is in the the back yard, requires a bit of reversing in relatively tight space, but do-able if you take your time. Great location for the town less than 5 minutes to the shops. Great for food - chip shop, Thai restaurant, Indian restaurant, 2 x Chinese restaurants, Italian and pizza all on the same street leading to the town with take aways available and The Pheasant Inn on Crossthwaite Road 5 minutes walk or less in the opposite direction of town. Didn't eat there but food looked really good and smelt fabulous. Will eat there next time I'm in Keswick! Also recommended after I'd returned was the Dog and Gun pub, famous for it's goulash. Another one for me to try.”

    • “We brought our two small dogs who are very well behaved, but when one of them had cocked his leg against the garage wall by my son's car in the courtyard, the lady next door but one was very rude and said we should not allow the dogs out there at all as her grandchildren could catch something! I did explain that this is highly unlikely, I am a qualified health professional and we also had a doctor in the house! She said there were notices in the house saying we could not bring dogs out into the shared courtyard - however, these were not evident. We are very responsible dog owners and always clean up their poos, but this was them having a wee! We were only there for the weekend - it is a lovely cottage but this would deter me from returning. Also, as it is a shared courtyard, it might have been good to have some chairs to sit on outside in the summer months. The location is great, a short walk into town and cottage is lovely. The stairs to the attic room are very steep, but certainly manageable.”

    Mrs Jeffers, Leighton Buzzard, November 2018

    • “The bathroom is tired, needs new bath panels and the radiator needs replacing or painted. Most of the house needs to be redecorated to be honest.”

    Mr Blake, November 2018

    • “Nothing springs to mind.”

    Mr Morgan, Caldicot, September 2018

    • “This cottage is bigger than it looks and is nicely furnished. It's in a great location, walking distance from Keswick. We really enjoyed our stay here. However, there is no garden at all, at the rear there is a shared yard where bins are kept and cars parked. The parking is awkward, and the description of it could be better. You get to it from the far end of the terrace, not the drive next to the cottage, then have to go through a metal gate and it is to your left, but it isn't clear when you drive in, especially as there is a sign saying 'parking for B&B only'. Also, a sign saying which door is for the cottage would be helpful. Other than these points, it is a lovely place.”

    Mrs Redfern, Liverpool, August 2018

    • “Nothing wrong with the cottage it ticked all the boxes, fab location, clean, and modern. Beds are extremely comfy although the attic stairs are very steep and narrow, if you had to get up in the night you had to go down the first couple of stairs before you could switch on the light which then lit all the bedroom up.”

    Mrs Pears, Sheffield, July 2018

    • “Absolutely lovely cottage but it doesn't have a garden and I think that should be more clear.”

    Mrs Fletcher, Gloucester, May 2018

    • “Your listing said a patio area!! I think this requires revision. We did sit out despite no chairs or knowing where to sit that would not upset residents. If this had a better dedicayed area we would re book but as it is realy just a yard with cars and others back yards it should not be described as it is.”

    Mr Lucas, Stapleford, May 2018

    • “Lovely Holiday cottage. Lovely touches with Tea Towels ,pot holders etc and a very good range of kitchen implements. The can opener didn't work that is the only criticism I have. A very well appointed cottage.”

    Mrs Clarke, Henfield, March 2018

    • “Great location and a very comfortable cottage. It was home from home and had everything you would have in your own home. It was also lovely decorated for Christmas which made it feel cosy and Christmassy.”

    Ms Coulter, London, December 2016
