We had a very relaxing holiday. The area of the bungalow was quiet which is what we like, yet we were only a few minutes from the centre of Keswick. The bungalow was by far the nicest we have stayed in with you.
Mrs Harrison

We were up in Keswick for our annual family gathering and in particular this year to celebrate a 90th birthday. Have stayed in other properties in the location but first time in High Doat. Great little bungalow with the added bonus of a large entrance lobby and a sun room off the kitchen. Excellent shower in the bathroom - the best we've had in a number of years. Although there was a musty smell that we couldn't track down. Beds were comfy and plenty of bedroom storage space. Towels aren't provided which is a shame as they are bulky items to pack. Internet would have been useful especially as mobile signal is intermittent. Would be reluctant to book again due to the lack of wifi - but if wifi was included would love to stay again!

The bungalow was a lovely place, with everything you would need and more. A great location & were able to access many walks from the door, without using the car.
Mrs Brady

The bungalow was very well equipped and comfortable with a private garden. In easy walking distance to town and lake, 10 - 15 minutes. Everything you could need and more, and the scenery was spectacular. Would highly recommend this holiday home.
Mrs Locke

The accommodation was very comfortable and well equipped with a private garden. We were able to leave the car at property, as it was only a 10 - 15 minute walk to town and the lake. We would highly recommend this property.
