A truly great place to stay. Perfect in every way, a gem in the Northern Lakes. All I can say is stay there, you won't be disappointed. Comfortable beds, fantastic breakfast, local produce and so tasty. Thanks Chris and Roy.

I stayed here in February 2013 with my partner. It was an absolute joy. Friendly hosts. Comfortable rooms, although perhaps a little 'tight' for a someone 6 foot tall. Delicious breakfast. Cosy wood burning stove in lovely lounge. Great location with stunning views. Couldn't have asked for much more except for a few more days.

We were fortunate enough to stay in Willow Cottage on our first trip to the Lakes. It is in a lovely small village just outside of Keswick.

We have had many lovely weekends at Willow Cottage since our first visit 11 years ago. It is the most relaxing country cottage you can imagine.
