Half term break
Good size cottage, ideal for two small families.plenty of space for everyone. Nice little welcome pack to start us off. Location ideal for walking into Keswick. Could do with more up to date central heating instructions - we were sweating during the night & couldn’t figure out how to turn it off!

Thank you so much for your review! We're happy you found Acorn Cottage ideal for two small families and still feel spacious. We are so glad you enjoyed the complimentary welcome pack. We agree Acorn Cottage is located ideally to have a short walk into Keswick. Thank you for your comments about the central heating, we will update this for future guests. We hope you had a brilliant holiday and we hope to welcome you back again. Best Wishes, Keswick Cottages

Lovely house but a few minor points
Check-in was a bit late in the afternoon (4pm), I have seen other reviews saying this also. Very large lounge with 2 comfy sofas and 1armchair, armchair could do with clearing out as had lots of food debris caught down the side of the cushions. Kitchen was very small, house is for 6 and it was definitely not big enough for that many in the kitchen. There was far too much china in the cupboards, far too excessive for only 6 people. This meant there was no cupboard space for any food we bought with us. A wooden cupboard in the kitchen has items like a fish platter dish. I think a de clutter of some items in the cupboard would be ideal. Outside is a small courtyard which was very messy with broken hose and dog bowls. Also the exterior of the courtyard had rotten wood on the exterior. This we felt could have been tidier. The bathroom was also very small and I think if you have slight mobility problems you would struggle to get out of the bath. The 2 main bedrooms were very spacious and extremely comfortable beds. We hunted for the hoover so we could clear up properly before we left, the information folder on the shelf in the dining room advised it was in a cupboard in the dining room, It wasn't there but in a cupboard on the 1st floor. This needs to be updated. Also the hoover smelt a bit foisty and damp. We did also find the little notes up on the walls advising what not to do was a little intimidating. All in all we enjoyed our week in the house. Just a little de clutter in the kitchen would be our main gripe. Being so close to the town is obviously a big advantage and being January we had no problem parking out side the house all week

We returned for another stay at this lovely well equipped comfortable cottage in Keswick. It has everything you need for a fabulous holiday and a superb location.

Thank you so much for your 5-star review! We love that you're returning guests to Acorn Cottage. We are so pleased you find it to have everything you need whilst on your holiday, and it is situated perfectly to enjoy a short stroll into town but also be away from the noise of the town centre. We hope you had a wonderful time celebrating the New Year at Acorn Cottage. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Best Wishes, Keswick Cottages

Great place to stay, great communication would 100% stay again.
In the heart of Keswick it’s a great house with lots of spacious rooms and comfy bedding, dining area and seating. It’s an old house and a little quirky with some slightly wonky floors upstairs which add character.
Nice cottage, great location, comfortable stay.
