Herdwick View

Sleeping up to eight people, Herdwick View boasts four luxurious, en-suite bedrooms; one on the ground floor with king size bed and walk-in shower in the bathroom, and three first floor bedrooms that have all been finished to the highest standard. Enjoy woodland views in the first, which also features a king size bed and en-suite facilities that include a feature bath and walk in shower; the second bedroom again boasts a king size bed, as well as a window seat overlooking views across the garden and a well-appointed en-suite bathroom; the final bedroom features a double bed and en-suite shower room.

Families and travelling groups will love the welcoming lounge with Smart TV and sound bar, and a log-burning stove to turn those winter nights from cold to cosy, perfect for relaxing on the comfortable leather sofas. The kitchen and dining room have been superbly appointed, with a five-ring electric hob, electric double oven, microwave, dishwasher, American style fridge freezer, wine cooler and even a TV in the kitchen, as well as a splendid island unit and granite worktops. The dining room features beautiful picture windows and opens up to the first of two patios.

The cottage offers plenty of privacy for guests, screened on two sides by woodland, with a private drive and gate leading to enough parking for four cars. There are still fab views to enjoy though, with the grounds opening up to the south west – our south facing patio is ideal for enjoying the views and soaking up the sun. There is also a larger patio to the side of the house with dining furniture, which is perfect for eating al fresco in the summer, as well as a covered outdoor summer house with Sonos sound system and outdoor heaters.

Perfect location with excellent facilities.

Davis, Will - 15/11/2022

To clarify me and my partner have stayed here three time this year. Booking is always easy and straight forward. Pros:1) Location is perfect for photographers and hikers as most places are quite local. 2) Keswick is 15 minutes from door to parking.3) Very well cleaned and very hygienic, hot tubs are tested every morning and drained and refilled before the next person arrives.Cons:1) Reception. The first time we arrived we had no idea where the reception was as it isn't very well sign posted. Just so you know, as you go through the main entrance you go past a small house on you left and it'll be just on the left, park up and walk down the step through the gate. If you arrive later you best bet is to call 07821 440742. That's it for cons haha, genuinely couldn't recommend this place enough.I'll include picture I've taken of surrounding areas less than 40 minutes away.

Great location, fantastic views over to Skiddaw, canoeing and swimming or walking on the lake. Spa day at Armathwaite Hotel just up the road. If you love cycling just 7 mile into Cockermouth for a little bit of history where Wordsworth was born, cafes, shops and restaurants.

Nice site

Ribbens, John - 29/09/2022

Site is nice and clean, but pitches not that clearly marked and no reception area to check in or ask questions. Mobile number given but signal not great in this area. Site manager did appear not long after we found our pitch and was welcoming and polite.The service pitches seem to be back to front as really should have gone in hitch first to be able to reach services, normal service pitches you reverse in.The site was quite when we went but if busy facilities would not be sufficient, as only two toilets' and two showers in both mens and ladies.

Such a lovely quiet site

Bailey, David - 27/09/2022

Lovely site in a great location. Only things that need addressing really which are small tweeks, one is could do with a sign as you enter the site showing where the reception is as it doesn't stand out and is easily passed. I would have liked to have seen more dog waste bins around the site. Lastly and such a small thing a ice cube tray in the freezer. Other than that such a wonderful site and accommodation.
