Owner's reply: Thank you for your review of Causey View. We are glad you liked the location and found the house clean and well equipped. We have furnished the house to try to make best use of the space and ensure it is cosy and comfortable, hence we chose a good quality leather sofa that does not obstruct the doors at either end of the room and have dressed it with cushions and a throw - we are sorry to hear you did not find this comfortable for relaxing on and will look at if this can be improved. We do not provide outside furniture at present as the yard is shared and we have limited storage in the cottage for garden furniture but we will review this for the future.

“Perfect cottage, fantastic location - we loved it!”

Reviewed 9 May 2013

I rented this cottage as a 50th birthday surprise for my partner. Not only did Jo and Steve happily get involved with my surreptitious plans for having a presenet delivered to the cottage prior to our arrival, but we were delighted and surprised to find on our arrival, a vase of flowers and a birthday card - what a lovely, thoughtful touch. Jo popped in on our first day, just to make sure everything was all right and that we were happy and settled. The cottage itself is erfect for two people - spacious yet compact. The bedroom is lovely, with an amazingly comfortable bed (I think my partner wil be quizzing Jo as to where she bought it from!). The front room is welcoming and relaxed, with tv and the all important free wifi. The kitchen is big enough and well stocked. There is a communal yard at the back which looked fine, although we didn't use it ourselves. The location is absolutely perfect - right in the middle of Keswick and its tempting outdoor shops; 10 minutes walk from the lake and of course, within a five to 10 minute stroll of a wealth of bars, restaurants and pubs.It's really useful to have a free parking permit for the central carpark, just a five minute walk away (you don't want to walk a long way to your cottage from the car after you've been to the top of Scafell Pike, I can tell you!!!). Both Jo and Steve were friendly, welcoming and there's loads of helpful information in the cottage about the local area and a good supply of walking/guide books. If we go to Keswicg again (and I'm sure we will), we won't be searching on-line for a cottage, we'll just book Causey View - thank you Jo and Steve! Andrew

Owner's reply: Thanks for your review Andrew. We were delighted to hear you both enjoyed your stay and were happy to be able to help make a special occasion even more memorable. We look forward to welcoming you back to Causey View again soon. Kind regards Jo & Steve
