The house was perfect for us spacious, well equipped very clean and warm and in an ideal location right in the centre of Keswick. The dining room and table where we ate on the first evening were both good sizes and we had a great evening playing the games provided and even lit the real fire. The vanity units in the bedrooms and bathroom and shower room and separate toilet was well organized and convenient for a large group. We enjoyed some lovely walks and didn't even have to move the car. I parked my car, a vauxhall astra, in the house's parking space at the rear it is a bit of a tight squeeze. The others managed to find parking in the road. Would definitely recommend and will return.

Well equipped, nice and warm for a chilly February trip to the Lake District. Jasmine Cottage is ideal for 2 couples or a small family and a small cottage with 2 loos and showering facilities in both rooms was an added bonus. If you're using the kitchen remember to pack Tclothes as well as towels. For those not wanting to cook there is the Middle Ruddings pub a mile away in Braithwaite which allows dogs and the food is excellent. Location is excellent, on my a few miles to Keswick and we'll sited for visits to many of the lakes. If you've got a dog there are walks close to the cottage too. Hope to make Jasmine Cottage a regular holiday in our annual calender. The owner Kate is very helpful and has made sure there is lots of informaction on the surrounding area.
