Lovely walks from the house. Atmospheric pub and delightful tea rooms in the village where we ate supper one night.

Well situated and the walk into Keswick was lovely too. We were there during a storm but felt safe and snug while we kept ourselves entertained. Everything there that you would need although took a while to get all the bedding on. Thank you for a great break away. We would definitely recommend stopping here.

Parking was an issue but maybe that was because it was New Year weekend and a few basic food bits, tea, coffee, milk etc would have been welcome on arrival, as is usually the case with rental properties, but that doesn't detract from this being an excellent place to stay.
