The Wow factor
My extended family and I stayed here for our annual walking holiday in the Lakes. The photographs on the web site don't do it justice and it has to be seen to be believed. The property is very luxurious and the kitchen is to die for and has everything that a family of eight could possibly want. All of the bedrooms and bathrooms were very high spec, as indeed was the entire property. The biggest Wow came from us all when we walked into the lounge and saw the stunning views of Skiddaw , Catbells and all the surrounding hills and fells. It was breath taking and to see all the lights of Keswick below us at night time was just magical. My 6 year old Granddaughter was in heaven.....in fact we all were . Over 30 odd years I have rented many properties for us all but this was the best of the best and I would not hesitate to recommend it. Booked it through Lakes Cottage holidays and the team there were also very informative and professional.

Excellent accommodation
This cottage was of the highest standard and most comfortable and very large. Well situated for travelling, walking and the Town Centre. The area was quite and the view from the veranda was breathtaking. The bedrooms were large and comfortable. Bathrooms a plenty and the Kitchen was extremely well stock with equipment and utensils. I can comfortable say we will stay again in this superb accommodation and most certainly recommend it to all.

Excellent venue for a get together!
Our children planned this holiday for our ruby wedding anniversary as we all love the lakes. There were 2 children and 6 adults, the venue was fantastic, where everyone had their own area if they wanted to get away from each other! The house had everything we wanted and more. The views were fantastic and most of the walks we did were available from the house. The week we were there the weather was fantastic (which helped), in fact too hot on occasions! There is no umbrella on the terrace (which we found out from previous reviews) so took our own which was very helpful each night. Yes the walk up from Keswick was hard, but also a good work out!! You do get a free parking ticket for the car park, which helps. All in all a very good time was had by all.

Great expectations
Booking was straight forward, friendly professional staff to hand to help and advise. Accomodation exceeded our expectaions on all fronts. Clean, spacoius, excellent views from the sun balcony. Private location but within walking distance of Keswick. Car parking was off road but I think you would struggle to with more than 2 reasonably sized cars. Slope down to garage is to avoided at all costs. Gardens were a delight. Tvs in Bedrooms would be welcomed. Would book again and recommend to friends.

Second visit - disappointed and let down by Lakes Cottage Holidays
After staying at Cloud End in 2012 and enjoying the beautiful house, scenery and high standard of presentation, we had no qualms about returning again this year to enjoy another family holiday with our two elderly mothers. What a disappointment, we arrived at 3.05pm as our documentation stated we could gain access from 3pm onwards. The cleaner was still there but said she only had 10 minutes cleaning left to do. After she left we had a good look around and realised that the presentation of the property was not of the same standard as 2012. It was dirty, nowhere had been vacuumed - the living room carpet had remains of biscuits and crisps, after 30 minutes vacuuming with the inadequate small attachment on the Dyson (all that was available) my brother-in-law found the large head for the vacuum wedged under a wardrobe - no wonder it was dirty, There were dirty underpants and socks in bedroom drawers and a charger left from previous occupants. The toilets were dirty and on the kitchen floor there was a garlic clove and a month's worth of dust etc behind the door. All the furniture looked like it hadn't been dusted for weeks. Four of our party spent a total of 10 hours cleaning to bring this property up to an acceptable standard. Photos were taken, letters and documentation showing that arrival was from 3pm was sent to Lakes Cottage Holidays complaining. The final letter from Lakes Cottage Holidays basically called us liars, stating that we had arrived at 2.10pm (which was not true) and that our photos (which were all dated) were inconclusive. A shame that all their documentation didn't give the same access time to the property. BEWARE OF LAKES COTTAGE HOLIDAYS, who manage this property, the cleaning is obviously done on a budget, and their complaint procedure is appalling. It is such a beautiful house with stunning views just badly managed by Lakes Cottage Holidays. What a shame, while Lakes Cottage Holidays have anything to do with the property we won't be returning again.
