    Elaine – 4 Nov 2018
    "Loved it"
    LUCY – 23 Oct 2018
    "Tower Cottage is a cosy property for 2 people, we were happy to be in quiet Portinscale, but within a short walk to Keswick town. The cottage had everything we needed, but might have been a little bit of a squeeze for 3?"
    Liz – 21 Oct 2018
    "An ideal cottage for 2 people who love walking."
    John – 1 Oct 2018
    "Very comfortable and peaceful stay. The cottage had all the amenities we needed and is in an excellent location. Maybe broadband would have been a benefit - although, in the event, we quite enjoyed being ‘off grid’ for a week. Good pub food locally and the walks into Keswick did us good. This was our second stay here and we are likely to be back."
    Bob – 16 Sep 2018
    "It is a great cottage in a fantastic location."
    Ted – 16 Sep 2018
    "Nice cottage, well kept, Bathroom downstairs with a very steep stairs was disadvantage."
    Jo – 20 Aug 2018
    "It was a very good holiday, our fourth visit to this cottage, still lovely"
    Martin – 8 Jul 2018
    "A lovely wee cottage ideally situated for easy access to Keswick & Derwent water walks including Cat Bells. Loved our short time here & would love to return."
    Confirmed guest – 30 Jun 2018
    "Lovely relaxing holiday. The cottage was perfect for us."
    Carol – 8 Jun 2018
    "Lovely stay in a beautiful cottage in a fabulous location. We had everything we wanted/needed. The stairs are steep and this should be taken into consideration before booking. Having said that, they did not cause us any proble. We were warned in advance. Lovely 2 week stay. Thankyou"
    Colin – 30 May 2018
    "Excellent location for exploring the area. Quiet with no vehicle noise. Great for walking from the door, we didn’t use the car all week and went somewhere different every day."
    JULIE – 10 Apr 2018
    "We really enjoyed our stay even though we arrived in the snow. The wood burning stove soon made the cottage cosy. The owners have made the best of what they have. Beautifully decorated throughout and very comfortable - especially the sofas and bed. Many holiday cottages have faux leather seating which is so uncomfortable. These sofas made a welcome change. We both slept really well and the cottage was warm enough even though the weather was very cold. Well located for local walks and also within easy walking distance of Keswick. The kitchen had everything we needed. The stairs were rather steep and it was a pain having to go downstairs to the loo in the middle of the night but that was a minor issue and would not put us off using this cottage again."
    Vivien – 7 Apr 2018
    "I love staying in this little cottage - so cosy and thoughtfully decorated and equipped. All in the great location of Portinscale, can't ask for more really."
    CHRISTINE – 8 Jan 2018
    "Wonderful, relaxing, cosy cottage. Reluctant to leave at end of week."
    Vivien – 4 Jan 2018
    "Really enjoyed the stay in S84839s it is a lovely cosy and warm cottage with loads of great walks and cafes to explore in close vicinity. Cafes are dog friendly so all was perfect for the dog as well. The cottage is thoughtfully decorated and provides everything required for a short or longer stay. The wood burner keeps the whole cottage heated even during a cold of mid-winter day backed up by efficient storage heaters. The one down side was the requirement to provide own fuel for the wood burner after an initial starter supply - which also needs to be smoke free fuel. Other than this small minus everything else about the cottage was positive"
