Just spent New Year with a group of guests, a little soggy outside but lovely evenings spent in Manesty and Manesty Band. Very clean and spacious rooms. The views of surrounding fells are stunning and lots of walks can be done from the door.

When we arrived one of the owners was pruning a Bush outside the cottage we had rented and didn't even stop to introduce herself or welcome us. On arrival we paid our our fee in cash including a £20 housekeeping deposit, when our stay was over, our cottage was checked over by the owners daughter who was also very unfriendly.... More

We really enjoyed our stay with the wonderful family who run Manesty Holiday Cottages, we were only there for a short time but found the family to be extremely helpful and knowledgable on the area. The cottage itself was very well kept and we especially liked the addition of a real fire! Thank you for a great stay!

We stayed for a week in the High Seat bungalow, with our family in other Manesty cottages. This is an ideal set-up for a large group who want their own kitchens. There are wonderful views from the cottages, walks, the river and Derwentwater. Shopping is about 5 miles away in Keswick which can be reached by bus, although basic emergency... More

My husband and I stayed in The Old Dairy, a cottage for a couple with a Double bed and bathroom downstairs, a small kitchen and comfy lounge/diner upstairs. Members of my family stayed in some of the other cottages. The cottage was beautifully clean, nicely decorated, and appointed with heaters (Love the timers!!) and lots of hot water. The kitchen...

We stayed at the Cocklety How Studio apartment, and it was perfect for our needs. Alan and Cheryl are lovely people who keep a beautiful group of cottages and grounds. The location is great and there is little need to get in your car to go anywhere; with some excellent walks, to explore the wonderful countryside, right from your door.... More

Very cute little shepherd's hut, suitable for groups of two for fewer. Hot & cold water, tiny sink, little wood-burner, kettle, microwave & not much else except for the beautiful Lake District just outside the door. Don't expect all the comforts of one of the cottages (no TV or DVD player) but if you fancy "glamping" this is perfect. Surprisingly... More

We two couples traveled from the U.S. to enjoy England's Lake District. We couldn't have picked a more perfect place to stay than Manesty Cottages. With such a variety of walks from our doorstep or a short bus ride away, and Keswick nearby for anything we might need from 'the city', we were all set. Our hosts were most welcoming... More

Stayed for 10 days in Cockelty Howe Stable Loft. Brilliant apartment, well equipped and fantastic views from front bedroom, kitchen and sitting room. Kitchen was well equipped for self catering with oven, grill, microwave (all separate), dishwasher, fridge and freezer. There were enough pots and pans too. Water was hot and showers had good water pressure. Bed was very comfortable... More
