“Perfect Little Bolt Hole!”
Reviewed 5 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Stayed here for a week in March (we gambled with the weather - and lost!).

First, the not so good: the exterior of the property lack 'curb appear'; the cottage is actually a garage conversion. There's no real outside space, apart from the hard standing in front. Oh, and there's a skylight in the bedroom that lets in a lot of light from early in the morning, and quite a bit of noise when it rains. The choice of TV channels seemed very restricted (far fewer than you usually get on Freeview), and the wifi signal was very weak (although they've ordered a booster, it just hadn't arrived in time for our stay). And... that's it.

The rest is all good. The interior is as lovely as the pictures show it to be - Photoshop trickery not involved. The bathroom is spacious and well equipped; the bed comfy (on the firm side), and the kitchen (not my area of expertise) nicely equipped should you want to cook. There's lots of storage space in the bedroom, and of course, there's a parking space outside. If you've been to Keswick before you'll know what a premium parking is at there.

Jana (our host) was really helpful and welcoming, but also totally respected our privacy.

By the way, it's only five minutes walk into Keswick, or to the supermarket. There's also a petrol station just around the corner with late night shop, should you want a late night snack. And it's only a two minute drive to the A66.

I love visiting Keswick, and will definitely return to Riverside Cottage in the future; it's one of the nicest places I've stayed in the Lakes.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed 24 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Just spent four days and the cottage ticked all the boxes.

Jana made every effort to make us comfortable which is a plus as we looked forward to return to the cottage every evening.

All the required comforts are there.

Will go again.

“great”
Reviewed 10 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

I love the flat. it is spacious, bright and really warm. There's free parking in the front garden. Jana is a very nice house owner. We really enjoy our stay here.
The only problem is the wifi: the signal is not good in the bedroom.
