Longthwaite was perfect for me and a group of friends as a base to go walking & cycling around Borrowdale. As Tim (the owner) says, it doesn't have all the mod cons, but it's full of character, has plenty of room and a fantastic wood burning stove!
The location is excellent - very close to the river, walking distance to nearby pubs and you have immediate access to many walking routes without the need to drive.
We loved it and will definitely be back for a future visit! …
Garden Cottage, Borrowdale, nr Keswick
Possibly the best dog friendly self catering cottage in the Lake District
Situated with superb views down to Derwentwater and up to Catbells, Garden Cottage is the best dog friendly self catering cottage that we have stayed in in over thirty years of staying in the Lake District. We struggled through the snow to arrive late in the evening to the lovely warm, clean and well equipped cottage which had been so well prepared by the owner, Helen, including fresh cut flowers and some lovely local biscuits. Everything that we needed was in the cottage and we had a fantastic time exploring the local area with our two children and dog. Helen has been excellent right from our original enquiry and booking through to ensuring we were given regular weather and travel updates to help us get to the cottage in such snowy conditions. We were so glad that we did travel through the snow and had an amazing stay in such a beautiful cottage and will definitely be returning again and again. Our friends joined us for three days and stayed next door in The Coach House, they too felt the same about their cottage and will also be returning. Thank you Helen for everything that you did to make our stay so memorable, form the help and travel advice through to the fantastic cleanliness and warmth of the cottages for our arrival. …
