Dirty and shabby
Can't fault the location for accessing the lakes, however on arrival the cottage smelt of smoke and was absolutely filthy - like it hadn't had a deep clean in a long time. In grained dirt / food debris in kitchen, dog hair all over carpets and smoke smell masked by air freshner. Cottage not suitable for four adults, twin bed very small and mattresses need replacing, double room on a lean! Not enough hot water to have decent bath even with boost so needed to heat extra with kettles!! Generally very shabby and in need of update. Parking for one car only. Outside very untidy and not clear what belongs to the cottage, is not safe to let dogs roam free.

Perfect place to stay in the Lakes
We usually go to Coniston to a company that rents lovely cottages so this was a bit of an experiment- one that paid off. The cottage is fabulous, the location excellent- near popular places but in a small village. Better equipped than most. Next to a lovely pub that takes dogs. Will book again soon.

Delightful cosy cottage
We were visiting for a 50th wedding anniversary celebration. My brother lives in Keswick and his wife's family live in Portinscale, so the cottage was perfect for our needs. A quiet, peaceful location but with an easy flat walk into Keswick. Also a very short walk to the launch. Very comfortable and with everything we could have required. We appreciated the large area for storing muddy boots, etc. We will definitely be recommending to friends and family. Our favourite pub in the area was the Swinside Inn. All their food was good but the slow cooked lamb was incredible. We also enjoyed a celebration meal at The Chalet in Portinscale and at the same time discovered they did breakfasts. We had a full English on our last morning which set us up well for our 7 hour drive home!

Great base from which to explore this beautiful area.
Cottage was clean, cosy and comfortable but there was no 'welcome pack' and there are no shops in the village so would advise bringing essentials with you. The location is ideal for walkers with lots of places to explore in the area. Lovely walks around Lake Derwent and you can take the launch across the lake to various stops. We chose this cottage because it is 'dog friendly', but the garden is not enclosed- did not matter for us as our dog does not wander. Good value for money.
