This is a lovely cottage in a lovely location. Its very peaceful and the views from both sides are fabulous. The cottage is well equipped although there are a couple of niggly things. The main one being the very inefficient fridge. Nothing that would ruin your stay though. If you like watching the birds youll be in seventh heaven.

Comfortable and quaint cottage in a lovely setting and only 12 minutes from Keswick centre. Clean and welcoming. However, beware that freezer box is taped up and the dryer is not working. Overall however, good value. We can recommend a visit to Lingholme which is down the road. They provide lovely food and the gardens are well worth a look.

We had the best time at Coledale cottage. So quiet and peaceful and a perfect place to recharge. We were blessed with a week of near perfect weather which enabled us to walk up high and make the most of this idyllic place. Would definitely love to return.

We loved this cosy cottage which was spotlessly clean on arrival and beautifully furnished with stunning views from all the windows. The kitchen was well-equipped. The location was excellent with many walks very close by including Cat Bells and for good evening meals the pub was only a short stroll away. All in all, we had a great week and we wouldRead more highly recommend this cottage. Hide

Beautiful cottage and in a lovely area but it was spoiled for us by being so cold in the cottage, think there may have been anybody in the cottage the previous week and there had been no heating on because by the end of the week it started to get warmer. It didnt help being the weather was very wet and windy..The water heater needs turning up and oRead moren longer as there was very little hot water no chance of a bath. But after saying all that the cottage was lovely and well equipped. Hide

Thanks for a wonderful, cosy getaway. The cottage is really lovely and in an attractive setting, with so many walks nearby. One thing to note, is that although they have a washing machine, you'll need to bring your own detergent.
