This is a great apartment to use as a base to explore all the Northern lakes has to offer. It is well equipped and there is a lovely view from the balcony. It was also warm and cosy when the weather was not so good. It was lovely being able to take a short walk down to the nearby lake which is very pretty. The gardens of the apartment complex were lovely too. There are no shops within easy walking distance (the nearest grocery shop is about 2-3 miles away in Braithwaite) but that wasn't a problem for us if you are out and about during the day.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay. We are pleased you found the cottage comfortable and cosy. It is situated in a very picturesque place with views towards Skiddaw/Latrigg. There is also a bus stop outside of the complex should you not wish to use the car. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Keswick Cottages

Lake View is a first floor apartment in Thornthwaite, with great views across to nearby Keswick and the surrounding fells. It was originally an inn, now divided into apartments with pleasant communal gardens. It is well positioned for exploring this lovely part of the Lake District, ideal walking country. We enjoyed a boat trip on Derwentwater and visited Mirehouse and Lowther Castle as well as local walks. The apartment is very spacious, more so than the pictures show. It is warm and comfortably furnished. There is generous storage space both in the kitchen and the two bedrooms. One bedroom has an ensuite with a shower and there is a modern family bathroom with plenty of hot water. A washing machine and tumble dryer are welcome additions. There is plenty of parking to the front of the building. We would recommend this apartment and hope to return in the future.

A quiet tucked away place with great views across the valley. Lovely apartment with all the facilities needed for comfort and convenience. A short drive to village pub and a couple of miles into Keswick. Very relaxing stay.

Good facilities and space for my husband and I, our daughter & her husband, but it was an apartment rather than a cottage. We enjoyed paddling on Crummock, Derwentwater and Ullswater, hill climbs, visiting Keswick and the younger generation made the most of Crag's Adventures to go canyonnning.

Two of us and our dog Charlie had a week here and couldn’t fault it! Beautiful views, beautifully furnished and comfortable and well equipped. Very clean and well kept. Well situated for visiting all of the Lakes and many other places of interest. Watching the sun rise above the mountains from the patio balcony has to be experienced! View of the Lake is not extensive but it’s a short walk away. A view from almost every window. If you can’t do stairs then this place may not suit as there are steps up to the front door and steps from entrance up to apartment and just one step up from lounge to hallway and a step down to go out onto patio. However, I am not the most agile of people but I managed just fine. A quality property and we will be returning. One minor thing to note is that the mattress on the bed in the room with en suite is very soft and whilst I coped ok with it and was able to sleep well, if you have a back problem and need a firm mattress this could be an issue. We did not use the second room so can’t comment on the bed in there. This is an outstanding property and we loved staying there.

We have just stay in lake house for 4 nights. Taking our two small dogs and 9 month old baby. We couldn’t fault the place it was immaculate and very cosy. The views from every window amazing. It’s a few miles away from the town centre of Keswick and has two near by pubs (few minutes by car ) . The bedrooms are spacious and kitchen well equipped. A real bonus for us was having Netflix, after a long day it was great to be able to chill out and watch a film. We would defiantly return and would like to thank the owners for a wonderful stay.

So much to do here that we've booked up to return already. It's a beautiful area with splendid walks in every direction. Everything we needed was here and the dogs thoroughly enjoyed their visit to the Lake District.

The cottage is in a beautiful quiet location with stunning views and a lovely balcony to sit and eat or read a book. Very clean and well-equipped. Would give it 5 stars if the garden had been fully enclosed but without gates at the side it was not secure for letting dogs off lead which was a shame. Otherwise, just great.

Far enough away from the bustle of Keswick to be relaxing but not too far if you need shops etc. Great views across Bassenthwaite lake to the Skiddaw range. The accommodation is very good with everything you might need for your stay. Plenty of walking from Thornthwaight village and only minutes drive away from Borrowdale and Newlands valley. Pubs ,food etc. at nearby Braithwaite 1.5ml. or Keswick 2.5ml.
