The enclosed gravel garden with its raised deck is the ideal place to relax after a busy day in the Lakes. A garage provides secure off road parking for 1 car and storage for your bikes and other equipment. Just 15 minutes from lively Keswick and 2 miles from tranquil Bassenthwaite Lake, with a friendly pub within walking distance, Dash Cottage is the ideal holiday cottage for an affordable break in the Lake District at any time of year.

Relaxing spacious property. A real gem.
Quite secluded but peaceful. A perfect base to access all notable locations in the Lakes. Our 2 small dogs settled quickly. A nearby pub is 10/15 mins walk away. Serving good quality food. Otherwise stock up and make use of the modern fully equipped kitchen. A very good sized bathroom complete with shower cubicle. On arrival we found muffins and a pint of milk waiting in the kitchen. Very hospitable.

A real home from home
We have just spent a weekend in the best cottage we've ever stayed in, spotlessly clean, well stocked, plenty of room and comfortable. Situated in a small village with the main A66 just yards away, but far enough away not to notice it, so you can easily get about. A fantastic pub 15 minutes walk away, or 5 in the car, which served a superb Jennings ale and good food, and dog friendly too...as is the cottage. Both Keswick and Cockermouth are minutes away in the car...good record shop, music shop and brewery are in Cockermouth...Keswick was just, well...busy...but worth a visit.

Great Stay
This is an excellent holiday let. Spotlessly clean with a modern kitchen and quite a spacious bathroom. It was very comfortable too. It is near the main road which you can hear in the distance from the house and the courtyard is small and away from the house, however, these factors did not stop us from having a wonderful holiday. Being near the road meant that we could easily travel around the area. There is a Sainsbury's in Cockermouth which is very convenient too. Check well in advance what time the key will be available to collect.
