Mid week stay
We have stayed at Birchgate many times over the years. On our last visit the property needed updating and redecoration. This has been carried out to a high standard and as a result we were extremely impressed and as a family had an excellent time. As usual excellent service from Keswick Cottages and we will definitely be back.

Thank you so much for your 5-star review! We love that you are returning guests to Birchgate! We are so happy you were extremely impressed with the high quality recent refurbishment and that you had an excellent time. Thank you so much for your kind comments about our customer service, as a small local agency we truly appreciate the feedback we are given. We can't wait to welcome you back on your next visit!

Birchgate
We had a lovely stay at Birchgate. The cottage is really well equipped, especially the kitchen. It is cosy and warm. The cottage was spotless and tidy. Great to have parking and an enclosed garden. The location is great, right next to the park and the town centre. Loads of walks without having to take the car anywhere. We and our dog loved it and hope to stay again.

Thank you so much for your review of Birchgate! We love that you had a lovely stay and found it really well equipped for your self catering holiday. We are so glad you found it cosy, warm and spotlessly clean. The on-site parking is a great feature of the property and the enclosed garden is perfect to enjoy some outdoor space and makes it safe for your dog to explore. We agree that the location in central Keswick is perfect to enjoy exploring the town. We can't wait to welcome you and your dog again. Best Wishes, Keswick Cottages

Great location
Better instructions for location of heating timer would have helped. Also was told couldn’t use 2nd bedroom but no offer of reduction in cost.

Thank you so much for your feedback. We sincerely apologise if there was any misunderstanding regarding the second bedroom, when we contacted you ahead of your stay it was just to see whether anyone would be sleeping in the twin room as the new blind had not arrived in time. We had sourced a spare one to use if the room was needed, but you let us know that there was just 2 adults staying using the master bedroom so that would not be necessary. All the instruction manuals and heating control instructions are available on the tablet provided, but we're a small local agency just up the road if there is anything you need help with during your stay. We hope you had a great time and hope to welcome you back again. Best Wishes, Keswick Cottages

Lovely little cottage in a perfect location! Everything the cottage was perfect and in a super location!
We've been coming to this cottage for over 10 years. It still ticks all the boxes. There's only two of us and we like to spread out so if you're like us you may feel a little cramped if there are four of you. My all-time favourite feature is that you have somewhere to park the car. If ever you've tried to do that in peak season in Keswick you'll understand why that is so good. My second favourite is that the cottage is tucked away in the town but within easy walking of all other parts, yet is is delightfully quiet.
Birchgate is a delightful cottage. It has an excellent well equipped kitchen, warm and cosy living room, two excellent sized bedrooms and a large bathroom. There is outside seating front and back and a car parking space. It is within an easy walk of Fitz Park, the old railway walk and the Town centre. The lake is not far away and there is a nearby convenience store. It in in a quiet area, we had a great week here and didn’t want to leave. A big shout out to the cleaner/cleaners, the cottage was absolutely spotless. We loved our week in this super cottage. Keswick Cottages who we booked through are an excellent company to deal with, with prompt friendly service. There isn’t anything about this cottage and booking agent we would change and really hope we will go back one day.
