Perfectly placed for walkers, drinkers, or both
A charming cottage in the back-of-beyond. Just what was required over a festive Christmas break. The kitchen's facilities were more than sufficient for us to comfortably prepare a Christmas meal for 5. A short walk along the beck to Rossthwaite and we were able to get a lovely meal and some fine beer in the Riverside pub. I did find it difficult to get comfortable in the bed in Room 1. And for those in need of WiFi (why this would be required I am not sure) may find it difficult to get a signal in those areas not adjacent to the adjoining farmhouse.

We enjoyed the beautiful cottage garden, it was very relaxing. In a perfect location for walks or fell climbing. There is an excellent pub two doors away, and a short stroll brings you to fields of lambs. A very roomy cottage, highly recommended.
Mrs Mannion

Stonethwaite was a warm comfortable cottage in an ideal location for exploring Upper Borrowdale.
Mrs Tolliday

Excellent rural cottage in a remote location yet easily accessible to Keswick. The cottage was extremely comfortable and well kept and ideal for a walking holiday or general relaxation in the countryside.
Mrs Meikle

Excellent location and very helpful owner.
