“clean, tidy and very homely”
Reviewed 16 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage it was lovely and finished to a very high standard, we were met by the owner with milk and some really lovely shortbread biscuits which were eaten very quickly. It is a great location for getting to all the lakes and most areas, road is a bit fast but got used to it quite quickly, my son had a flat tyre and the owner kindly let me use his pump to pump it up saved my legs, very nice of him, thanks for a good holiday.

“Stunning”
Reviewed 9 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Beautifully furnished flat in a pristine condition on arrival. We were astounded by the quality of this flat, the pictures didn't really do it justice! It is located on a farm attached to the owner's own house so they were just on hand and happy to help if we needed anything. They even offered us fresh eggs for the morning! There was a freshly baked cake waiting for us on arrival which was a pleasant extra, plus milk in the fridge! The bed in the master bedroom was huuuge and kitchen well equipped. It's in quite a remote location, so you would definitely need a car to get around. Its an easy scenic ride to keswick and the other local villages, but no nearby shops/petrol stations as far as we were aware. There is a pub down the road approx 1 mile away, although we didnt visit it. Overall, absolutely fantastic flat perfect for a group of friends or family. Thoroughly recommend!

We had a great weekend at Whitehead Cottage. Plenty of space for a group of 6 adults and excellent modern furnishings and facilities. Would definitely book again.
