The house is in a perfect spot for walking straight out onto the hills and yet nearest pub just a mile down the road and Keswick 20 minutes drive. Clean, very well equipped, warm and comfortable. We have stayed several times.

“Brilliant location”

This is an almost perfect cottage in an outstanding location for those who value walking from the door, leaving the car at home. It was, however, a shame that the absence of attention to some basic facilities ; plugging in the freezer, switching on the water heating, clear operational instructions for the hob and oven; caused stress and inconvenience. With more thought this could be a perfect holiday cottage.

A well equipped, roomy cottage in a beautiful location. Catbells view from the garden. Ample parking so leave the car and enjoy the abundant walks from the door. Riverside walks, fell walks, lakeside walks & a pub a mile from the door along a quiet country lane. Highly recommend this cottage.

“SUPERB COTTAGE OFFERED BY KESWICK COTTAGES”
Reviewed 13 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This is the 7th time we have stayed either at Ghyll Bank Cottage or its sister cottage Ghyll Bank situated next door. This time we stayed at Ghyll Bank Cottage which is slightly smaller. As ever 'Keswick Cottages' provided a stunning service and once again it was a delightful stay. The cottage is beautifully appointed with stunning views across the Newlands Valley and to 'Catbells'. The Cottage was very clean and tidy upon arrival and very comfortable to stay in. Keswick Cottages provided very thoughtful touches such as a tea tray upon arrival and a binder packed with local information, places to eat and various discounts to be had in Keswick. Parking is right outside the door and there are numerous walks of all types right from the door. So... you have literally everything on your doorstep. Braithwaite is a small village a couple of miles away, so you don't even need to venture into Keswick if you don't want to. This really is an exceptional base for exploring Keswick and the surrounding area. I also have to say that the staff at Keswick Cottages provide an exceptional service. We had a flat battery on our car and were stranded at the Cottage. Rebecca kindly arranged for a neighbour to give us a jump start. Hugh also assisted with us being inept at working the TV, and as ever the staff are very friendly and courteous on the phone. What more can you ask for from a company? That is why we keep returning year after year. The other properties we have stayed in are also equally as good as Ghyll Bank Cottage. Thanks a million KC and we will see you again next year!
