Character cottage, sleeping 8 people in 4 bedrooms in the Borrowdale Valley, 10 minutes from Keswick

Coombe Cottage is a luxurious 4 bedroomed characterful cottage set in an enviable location in the Borrowdale Valley. A house that exudes character and is stylishly furnished and equipped to an extremely high standard of accommodation. A fabulous large kitchen/breakfast room with a cosy wood burning stove with a lovely area to meet at the start of the day.

On the ground floor you will find a tastefully furnished, master double bedroom with an en-suite shower room with basin and WC. A further double bedroom and twin bedroom that share an en-suite shower room with basin and WC. ?A lovely large conservatory overlooking the beautifully designed garden.

A utility room with WC. Continuing onto the second floor where there is a further double bedroom with shower over bath, basin and WC. The lounge/diner is open plan and sumptuously furnished with envious surrounding views of the Borrowdale Valley, through double doors that takes you onto a lovely feature balcony, where you can admire the garden from.

Coombe Cottage is perfect for family or friends; a large sociable house that has an enviable locality and only a short drive into Keswick, with all the amenities you will need whilst on holiday.


Nice, but expensive
We stayed in the cottage for two nights either side of the Keswick Half Marathon, which four of us were running. The cottage is very nice, clean and comfortable. Kitchen well equipped, with a huge open plan lounge upstairs. The conservatory up the side of the the house was also a lovely place to sit, over-looking the garden. Downsides however are: - Its pretty expensive (£550 per night), and there are cheaper places locally which are just as good - we've already booked one of then for next year's race. - No towels were supplied which I don't think is acceptable when paying a premium rate. A very nice lady in the Borrowdale Hotel next door obligingly loaned us some, for which we were very grateful. - The drive can be a bit of a nightmare to reverse into, as the main road outside can get quite busy

Cosy Christmas at Coombe Cottage
Our family party of 7 enjoyed a memorable Christmas in this beautifully furnished and spacious property. An initial problem with the heating was quickly resolved by a phone call to the owner. Thank goodness we were warm and snug inside, since the weather was truly horrendous for most of the week! We could not fault the amenities of Coombe Cottage and the well-equipped kitchen made for hassle-free cooking. We would certainly visit again - but would hope for kinder weather next time!

Lovely homely place to stay
This beautiful cottage is a lovely home from home. It is well laid out so the living area makes the most of the amazing views over Derwent water towards Catbells. Well equipped for a family stay. I would highly recommend.

Luxary Cottage
We stayed in this very nice cottage for 4 nights. We were 2 couples and 1 child. This is very nice and relaxing cottage and there is plenty of space in the house for two small family or a single big family. There are plenty of places in lake district to do, so we were mostly outside but it is very relaxing to stay indoor as well There is parking for 2 cars and I believe you must have a car if you are staying in this property as Keswick is almost 5 miles away and you will feel fairly crippled if you depend on public transport. The land lady was very polite, she called us personally on the phone to enquire if everything is OK, we did feel very welcomed and it was a nice experience. The agency had charged us 10 pound for cot which was bit irritating and the land lady was also very annoyed at hearing at this and she said she will speak to them about it but we did not pursue it any further, as I was not bothered for extra 10 pounds, considering I had paid almost 700 pounds. In nutshell I will highly recommend this property
