“Cosy little cottage with great walks from the door”

My husband and I stayed at High Snab Cottage for a week to celebrate our first anniversary. Tom and Caroline were extremely helpful from the start - they were very quick to respond and were happy to answer any questions we had before arriving.

The cottage is tucked away in the beautiful Newlands valley, just south of Keswick. The location was perfect for what we wanted - loads of great walks and bike rides from the door (Robinson, Maiden Moor, Causey Pike and Grasmoor are very accessible, and we also walked to the peaks south of Buttermere for a further option) with Keswick only 30 minutes drive away and Whinlatter Forest also easy to get to for cycling. There are absolutely stunning views from the cottage across the valley, and we enjoyed eating outside (weather permitting!) and gazing at Causey Pike and Cat Bells.

On arrival we were greeted by Tom and Caroline who made us feel welcome and comfortable. They gave us some great tips about local walks, and had even provided some biscuits, fruit, milk and flowers to start us off. We did not see much of them throughout the holiday, but as they were right next door we knew they were always available to answer any questions.

The cottage itself is very cosy and well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. There is plenty of cooking ware, crockery and a dishwasher, so self catering is very easy. The living area is nice and snug, with a cute little log burner which we would definitely have used if the weather had been colder. The shower is amazing (very important if you are spending long days outdoors!) and the bed is very comfy, with gorgeous views of Cat Bells from the window.

There is ample space outside the cottage for lounging and eating, and a nice little BBQ area although we didn't quite have the weather to make the most of that! There is also plenty of storage space outside for storing bikes and hanging wet kit.

We did find that there weren't any warm places for drying wet kit and clothes though, which isn't too much of a problem if the weather is warm or if you're not planning on hiking/cycling etc - however as it was quite drizzly for much of our stay, we had a lot of wet kit and there isn't much drying space other than the outhouse which is quite cold for drying. It is also worth noting that the washing machine, located in an outhouse around the corner from High Snab Cottage, is shared with Tom and Caroline's family, which was very kind of them and not a problem as they are happy for guests to use it as frequently as they like. We found it slightly inconvenient as we produced a lot of dirty walking/cycling kit which we would have perhaps liked to have washed more frequently but did not like to hog the washing machine, however it wasn't too much of an issue as we had packed plenty of spare kit so could go for a few days without washing.

Overall, we would definitely recommend High Snab Cottage for a walking holiday or just a relaxed getaway. We had a lovely time and are very grateful to Tom and Caroline for providing a wonderful haven in the gorgeous Lake District.

“All you want for a perfect break”

We are just back from a week at High Snab Farm Cottage, Caroline and Tom the farmers, who live next door, are very friendly hosts they leave you to enjoy a peaceful break if that is what you want, but make it clear they are on hand with help and advice if needed. The one bed cottage is spacious, the decor and cleanliness are exemplary with all the amenities for a comfortable stay. The cottage, set in a working farm, and has wonderful views in every direction. There are easy or more taxing walks, on the fells or around Derwent Water, just as you step out of the door. Ideal for two people, I would recommend High Snab Farm for a wonderful break in the heart of the North Lake District.

“Peaceful and pleasant stay”
Reviewed 5 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Fantastic views and very good location, cottage was excellent and very quiet with good walks and water activities near by. Tom and Caroline were very good hosts and it was the perfect location and cottage for us. We will be back in the future.
