Location is perfect just outside Keswick so you don't feel the summer crowds and traffic jams. The room is a bit small, but it certainly makes up with charm. Breakfast is served in a bright room with...

The bathroom had a slight issue with water pressure but otherwise was very well decorated and luxurious. We especially enjoyed breakfast that was simply fantastic with...

Nothing to worry here, our hosts knew how to cater for a gluten free diet. The home-cooked food was delicious! Medium sized bedrooms had all facilities including...

We stayed at Jenkin Hill Cottage over Easter and had a really good stay. The room was very comfortable and we had a brilliant night's sleep.
