Guest Comments

“We were greeted by the lovely owner, Marlene. Nice and warm in the cosy cottage. Very peaceful setting with lots of walking options. Lucky with the weather. It is certainly an option to revisit.”

Carolyn, October 2019

“We had a really lovely holiday at Garries Cottage. We loved the more remote location – but not that far from amenities in Keswick or Cockermouth. The owners were very helpful, friendly and welcoming. The cottage is cosy, well equipped and comfortable – and owners happy to help put with clothes washing/drying if needed. Would definitely recommend.”

Lynda, July 2019

“A very spacious cottage surrounded by stunning landscapes. The owners were very friendly and polite. It has its own private woodland which is completely fenced in which was great for the dog to have him off the lead. Red squirrels came straight to the back door.Fantastic walks straight from the front door. Great pub 1 mile away and only 2 miles to the lake. Had a fantastic week will certainly book again.”

Ian, April 2019

“Lovely cottage with red squirrels at the back door and really friendly and helpful owners who live right next door and dog friendly so we took our two Labs.”
