            Beautiful House, Amazing Location, Wonderful Hosts

            5 of 5
            Just returned from a wonderful Easter weekend in the Lake District. We couldn't believe our luck having found this property, and we will 100% be returning in the future. The house itself is beautiful, with gorgeous features including a four poster bed! Everything was super clean, and the rooms had everything we could have needed and more. Having four bathrooms just made everything easier too. We would have loved to spend more time in the garden, though we were out walking most of the days. It is absolutely beautiful and kids would love it. The location was the main reason for selecting the house - an easy 10/15 minute walk into Keswick (pubs, supermarkets, even a few takeaways) and sat right beneath Skiddaw and Latrigg, both fantastic walks. It was so nice to be able to just walk out of the house and onto some great routes, plus the ability to visit some pubs on the way back! June and Mike have been super, all the way from first enquiries till now. June stopped in to say hello after we first arrived and gave us all the information we needed. about the house and the surrounding area. We felt so welcome and completely comfortable in their property. I will be recommending the Coach House to any of my family and friends visiting the area, and am thoroughly looking forward to returning. Thanks again June and Mike.

            Lovely property in an excellent location

            4 of 5
            This cottage has every facility needed for a very comfortable and enjoyable holiday. The location was picture perfect and within very easy reach of Keswick. The third bedroom in the property is a little tight for space but this would certainly not put me off booking again. Well worth a visit.
