“The perfect cottage at any time of year”
Reviewed 24 May 2017 for a stay in February 2017

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.

“Excellent accomodation at Riverside Cottage”
Reviewed 22 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

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.

“Riverside Cottage is a lovely place to stay.”

We have stayed at Riverside Cottage three times and will be returning again this year. The cottage is beautifully fitted out and well maintained. As a party of five adults we have enjoyed the roomy living space and having the terrace overlooking the river has been a real bonus. The cottage gives easy access to the town, with its many amenities, as well as being a fantastic base from which to explore the beautiful countryside of the Lake District.
The owners have obviously worked hard to equip the cottage with everything needed for a restful stay, there was even a home-made cake and fresh flowers on the table to welcome us in.

“lovely, well-maintained riverside cottage”
Reviewed 18 May 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Riverside Cottage is a lovely, luxurious, owner-maintained cottage in a quiet location, with River views and easy access to great walks as well as close to the Keswick shops and restaurants. We have stayed there in different seasons with our teenage/ young adult daughers. In summer, it is great to have a quiet cuppa on the terrace after a busy day, just watching the birds (and canooers) and listening to the river talk. In colder seasons, it is a cosy, warm and friendly place to come back to after walks. Pleasant kitchen-diner, comfy lounge, both with their own tv, well-decorated bedrooms and two bathrooms. Daphne's lemon drizzle cakes that welcome guests on arrival are famous by now, and we can't wait to visit again later this year.

“Unsurpassable”
Reviewed 18 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This is the third or fourth time we've stayed in Riverside and we've yet to find another cottage to match it. We certainly hope to come back again
It's an ideal cottage in an ideal situation overlooking the River Greta and only a short walk into the centre of Keswick. Lots of activities and tourist attractions nearby, good eating places in the town if you don't feel like cooking, lots of wildlife (just sit on the back patio and see the heron, kingfishers, dippers and goosanders) plus the beautiful view along the river. Set back from the main road so very quiet and peaceful.
Facilities are great, especially the newly refitted kitchen and the new shower, and the accommodation is very spacious and comfortable.
