    • “Garden Cottage was a perfect holiday retreat for Mum & I all ground floor and wonderful views of Cat Bells and lovely woodland gardens, rabbits feeding right outside the window.The apartment was a touch of luxury for the week, nicely furnished and cosy, light and airy.We were in no hurry to go out as the view was right there from the lounge windows.Central for Keswick, 5 mins to town and Lakeside in the car.Would love to return in the autumn if available.”

    • “We stayed a week in aug 2012 and had a lovely time. The cottage was well equipped, with fabulous views and near enough to walk into town if required. Keswick has lots to offer, the Garden Cottage was a delight and we didn't want to leave - we have booked again! Yippee”

    • “Garden Cottage was a lucky find of ours on the internet 4 years ago and what a find it was!! Since then we have stayed there 5 times and are still totally smitten with the place! It is warm, spacious and extremely comfortable with fantastic views over the surrounding Fells. On first arriving you feel totally relaxed and know that you have found the perfect place to stay. The grounds are very well maintained, with all manner of wildlife right outside your window and Keswick is in our opinion the best base for a stay in the Lake District, with a good selection of shops and places to eat. We hope to be booking Garden Cottage at least once a year for many more years to come as it is our little piece of Heaven in the most beautiful part of Britain! Highly recommended!!!”

    • “One of the best "holiday cottages" we have ever stayed in. A modern apartment, wonderfully fitted and equipped, on the ground floor of an old farmhouse. Very quiet and peaceful, yet only a 1 mile walk to the centre of Keswick. The view across the valley to Grisedale Pike and the Coledale Round is stunning. Thoroughly recommended.”

    • “Great service, easy booking and good rate. forth time staying in garden cottage and still loving it there! Planning next year already!! Lovely location, wonderful views, Keswick is a great town. We love everything about the lake district (even when its raining!) but going back to such a comfortable accommodation is the best thing.”

    • “It was so easy to make our booking - we were even allowed to alter a previous booking. The apartment was just as lovely as we remembered from our previous visits and a couple of minor issues were swiftly and readily resolved. Keswick gives us access to so much walking and climbing - the prefect springboard to our holiday. The sense of peace as we enjoy the view over to Catbells and beyond is magical! We have already booked our next visit!”

    • “We have stayed at the Garden Cottage twice, for seven night and four nights. The apartment has everything you need. The views are great. We feed the birds and it is lovely to see them coming to visit and also the rabbits. The settee is really comfy after a long days walking. We were very lucky with the weather on both occasions and managed to get some nice walks in. We would highly recommend this as a place to stay.”

    • “Fantastic location lovely views from the living room, you will not be disappointed. Nice modern apartment although it does need a bit of redecoration and there was a fair bit of dust behind the bedroom cabinets and under the bed. The water pipes tend to resonate when using the shower over the bath but to stop this just open the sink hot tap slightly. The entrance to the driveway is easy to miss so when coming up the hill from Keswick look for the white rockery stones as the road bends to the left and the turning is in front of the black & white house on the right hand side before the bend. There is a small sign is on the wall. Plenty of parking for guests and a designated space for the cottage. Great location for walking and cycling from the door. We will certainly use this cottage again.”

    • “Garden cottage is one of 8 apartments located up a long track which was no problem for my 4x4 but could cause a problem with any vehicles with low ground clearance. Booked via Lakes Cottage Holidays.But be careful when you book. I found that if I had waited 1 more day(so 21 days before) to book a 4 day break I would have saved £38.61 and I would have saved £60 if I had left booking till a week before. We came in November in heavy rain. Each apartment has a designated space all but one about 20 yards from the apartment. The keys are obtained from a key box and there is no representative of the letting agency present at any time. Two delicious scones with cream and jam along with milk, tea, coffee and a bottle of wine welcomed us on arrival. The apartment is a very good size for two people. It has a large kitchen-diner and lounge. The lounge has outstanding views over the fells. The french doors open onto a patio which would be great for outdoor meals in good weather. To my wife’s delight on the second day there were sheep grazing on the grass outside the apartment. There is a reasonably well equipped kitchen but no frying pan or non stick saucepan. There was a wok but we did not use it as it was not in good condition. There is a good sized bedroom and bathroom. In the bathroom part of the shower head holder was broken. However, the shower worked well. But there was some black mould on the mastic sealant around the bath. Also there were no hooks on the bathroom or bedroom doors to hang a dressing gown etc. No suitcase stands available. There was WIFI and a password was written into the apartment instructions. However, there were 3 networks available. One worked with the password provided. Unfortunately the non password protected network wanted 5 pounds an hour if you were not a subscriber to bt broad band. This was very annoying as iphone, ipad and computer of course kept connecting to this network first and often would not log onto the free network. Heating is timed but goes off in the evening. There are details on how to install the heating system but we could not find any information on how to control it. We did work out how to switch it on and off. It was very effective keeping us warm despite the snow outside. When people moved in upstairs you could hear them moving about but we did not find it too bad during our 4 day stay. We did enjoy our stay here and are considering coming again.”
