Another Lovely stay at Lakeview Cottage
This is our third stay at the Cottage and the second Christmas stay. The cottage is very well appointed and waram and comfortable with everything you could need. It also has superb views throughout. We were also lucky enough to win the Christmas hamper which really got things going! thank you so much for that. One tiny niggle is the couch which has seen better days and is not comfortable especially when 90% of the holiday was unfortunately plagued by rain ha! However I would highly recommend a stay here in a lesser known but wonderfully situated Cottage/area. Also the staff at Keswick Cottages are very helpful, we had a minor power outage and we were called back and situation resolved in under an hour. Simply wonderful and really didn't want to come home x

Thank you so much for your review and recommendation! We love that this is your third stay and second Christmas stay at Lake View Cottage. We are so glad you found it very warm, well appointed and comfortable. Congratulations on winning our Christmas hamper! Thank you for your comments about the couch, its really helpful letting us know about these things. Thank you for your kind words about our team, we always try to solve any issues our guests have as soon as possible. We hope you had a wonderful Christmas stay at Lake View Cottage and we hope to welcome you back when you visit again. Best Wishes, Keswick Cottages

Location is perfect, incredible view from the living room, clean, tidy, comfortable beds, good showers and bath, plenty of parking, peaceful. No complaints at all
We last stayed at Lake View in 2018, since then it has had a substantial make over and is much improved. A very warm and comfortable cottage with everything you could need. Well equipped new kitchen, lovely en-suite and main bathroom and lounge with spectacular views! Can't wait to return. Thanks to everyone at Keswick Cottages you do a great job!
Apartment was stunning , cosy , yet spacious. All mod cons . Comfortable beds , spotlessly clean . Beautiful views . Keswick cottages were very accommodating with my requests. Photos do not do it justice. Can’t recommend highly enough- thank you.
