We had a great time in this cottage -I don't feel the pictures do it justice! Very homely & great value for money. A great place to base yourself for exploring, and only 10 minutes from Keswick. Already planning when to come back!

Management Response
22 Sep 2012
Thank you for your kind review. Pleased you enjoyed your short break here at Puddle-duck cottages Bassenthwaite and the surrounding Lakes and fells. Our traditional farmyard environment seems to be quite popular, where the ducks and hens roam freely from farm to stream, including our recent baby ducklings who are now quite settled in to the daily routine of swimming and searching for worms and tasy bites by the riverside.. This years weather has been quite unusual to say the least, but you were lucky to have a warm spell!
Hope we may see you again sometime. The Trafford family
