    "The situation of S75661 is excellent. Withn walking distance of 3 good pubs serving good beer and good food; A lovely local shop 200 yards away, and right at the foot of the road up the Whinlatter Pass to the splendid visitor centre. Plus you are only 2 miles from Keswick."

    "We had a burst pipe while we were there which flooded a bedroom and lead to us cutting our holiday short"
    Colin – 7 Jul 2018
    "The cottage was nice but not equipped for 6. No wardrobe in one bedroom. No door on the en suite and the kitchen too small and poorly equipped. There were only 4 of us so we could manage. For example two slice toaster!Garden was not very usable either although that didn't bother us. No garden chairs! Location was very good, lounge and dining area were nice and washbasins in the bedrooms were a bonus.We had a fall of soot from the chimney in one of the bedrooms!So - nice cottage for four but would be tight on space for 6."
    Judi – 29 Jun 2018
    "we stayed at S75661 in March, so our visit in June was a repeat visit and we know what to expect. This is a very comfy cottage, well equipped and clean. The toilet flush can be difficult and there is a technique, which we mastered in March, but unfortunately this visit we managed to break the flush! A phone call to Cumbrian cottages on the Sunday led to a plumber fixing the problem within 24 hours (there is another toilet in the property) which was a satisfactory response and we were surprised to be able to contact them on a Sunday, so well done on that one!We were using the cottage as a base for a running challenge, and the location was perfect and we also walked the Coledale round directly from the property."
