Situated next to the river Greta it has a lovely stone terrace over looking the river, the cottage is beautifully furnished and very well equipped with all the modern conveniences, there is tea coffee and a delicious lemon drizzle cake waiting for you on your arrival. It's only an 8 minute walk down into Keswick and two car parks if you wish to drive.All in all a great place to spend a week or two , preferably two , any time of year. A big thank you to Daphne and Michael for another wonderful holiday we will be back again next year.
We have been enjoying holidays at Riverside Cottage for the past 15 years. It is a lovely cottage right beside the River Greta with stunning views up and down river. The cottage is clean and equipped to a very high standard and this hasn't diminished at all over the years. It is clear that the owners take pride and work hard to maintain the quality and are always making improvements. Just looking at the visitors book to see so many returners says it all. The location is perfect for walking the fells and a short stroll into Keswick for a meal or a pint of real ale in the many pubs. After a day out walking you can't beat sitting on the rear terrace watching the wildlife on the river - our best spot so far has been an otter. Like a previous reviewer said it really does feel like returning home.
Perfect location within walking distance of Keswick town centre. Three comfortable bedrooms, lounge, well fitted kitchen, dining room and terrace overlooking the River Greta-a haven for wildlife and bird watching. Binoculars are thoughtfully provided!. The amenities are more than adequate for us all. As the car turns into the parking space i feel as if I am "coming home" Delicious home made lemon drizzle cake and flowers are all part of the generous welcome of what has always been a wonderful week. I look forward to coming back this year........for the third time!
Riverside Cottage sits above the banks of the beautiful River Greta and is conveniently situated to access all parts of the Lake District. The cottage is very well appointed and has a terrace overlooking the river. This was our tenth visit and the owners have always maintained the property to an excellent standard. Walks from the door, views from all windows, a mini-supermarket 100 yards down the road and Daphne's lemon drizzle cake on arrival - what more could you want? Comments in the Visitors Book confirm my opinion that this is a special place. Already looking forward to our next visit.
Had a fantastic week at this lovely cottage. All facilities needed were first class with 2 bathrooms, one with a shower and one with bath. Kitchen had everything you would need for your stay and was excellent quality, beds were comfortable & bedrooms themselves roomy with plenty of storage. The location was wonderful with views of the river that runs past the back of the property from the kitchen, lounge and both double rooms upstairs. Sitting outside with a drink in the early morning or after a day out was a great way to start or end the day. We would definitely go back to this cottage again.
