Guest Comments

“Fabulous peaceful location with about a 10 minute walk into the village and the brilliant sun inn. Ots of great walks within spitting distance.The views from the cottage are to die for. Whilst compact, the cottage had everything we needed and was spotless. I always think a good indication is what happens when things go wrong – when the fridge died in the middle of the week they had a new one out to us within 30 minutes which we were impressed with. We will be booking this cottage again.”

“We enjoyed our stay in the cottage. It has everything you need on holiday. It was a very last minute booking and everything was ready for our arrival. The beds were very comfortable and we woke up every morning to stunning views. We would definetely come back.”

“We had a lovely holiday in Osprey Cottage. Nice and cosy, beautiful views from the kitchen and landing windows, very peaceful. The neighbour was extremely helpful when we managed to lose our key! We enjoyed a meal at the nearby Sun Inn as well as further afield, and found the shops in Keswick well stocked and good quality. We hope to return another year.”

“Osprey Cottage was cosy, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Wonderful views from the back of the cottage. Contained everything we needed for our holiday.”
