Overview

The cottage retains all the original features of a traditional Lakeland home yet at the same time offers modern fixtures, comfort and style. A small yet characterful front garden has outdoor seating to enjoy that 'post hike' drink on sunny afternoons and evenings. The cottage serves as a wonderful bolthole for couples, small groups of friends or families.

New years stay
This was our 3rd stay in this lovely cottage which is deceptively large . Well styled and comfortable. Appreciated roll topped bath , well stocked kitchen and books / games . We prefer being a walk away from the crowds in Keswick but with no local shop it is a good idea to take the essentials along

Thank you so much for your review! We love that you're returning guests to Barf Cottage! We are so happy that you found it comfortable and well styled. We are so glad that you found the kitchen well stocked and enjoyed the books and games provided. We hope you had a fantastic time and we hope to welcome you again when you return. Best Wishes, Keswick Cottages

Lovely cottage for a Christmas break
A super cottage in a fantastic location. Our recent stay in Barf cottage exceeded expectations. It was warm, clean and had everything we needed. Even though the weather was rather damp it was so comforting to return to a warm and cosy cottage and have an open fire in the evenings. Excellent location for walks into Keswick, Lingholm (can recommend their breakfasts) plus Derwent Water and CatBells. Staff were friendly and most helpful when we decided to extend our stay.

Thank you so much for this 5-star review! We love that Barf Cottage exceeded your expectations and you found it clean and warm with everything you needed. We can imagine how lovely it must have been to return to a cosy cottage after a wet day out exploring the Lake District, especially with the open fire on! Thank you so much for your kind words about our team, we always want our guests to have the best holiday. We hope you had a wonderful Christmas time at Barf Cottage. Best Wishes, Keswick Cottages

Excellent cosy cottage, pub over the road and easy walk to Keswick. We will book again!
Great cottage, the Christmas tree was a lovely touch, would definitely stay again, fire was awesome.
A nice homely cottage, well equipped. Good location and base to explore the area. Great walks from the door step. Nearby chalet cafe, less than ten minute walk provides quality food and drinks. Also a stones throw from the cottage The Farmers Arms pub, serving good standard pub food.
