This was my 1st ever stay on the Lake District and I can honestly say I enjoyed every moment of it we started in the luxury cocklety how byre a converted barn house which is beautifully decorated with wooden beams and roof windows it's full of character- a wooded area sits at the back of the property with a small...

This is my first time visiting the Lake District and hopefully not the last. I very much enjoyed our stay at Manesty, the owners were super accommodating and very thorough when showing us around, making sure that everything was covered from where to find instruction manuals to where our shoes should be kept. After that, we were set to go!... More

What a brilliant 3 nights I have just spent staying in such an amazing place. The location is brilliant, peaceful and out of the way but close enough to local facilities if need be. Alan, the owner, and his family were wonderful and done everything possible to make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. The hut we stayed... More

This is a difficult review for me to write as the owners were more than accommodating and friendly, however this is OUR experience, others will differ. We arrived later than we had wished so just wanted to get settled a quick bite to eat and rest after a long journey. We paid the remaining money owed plus £20 returnable deposit... More

Great location out of town but still close enough. Very comfortable. This place was unique in the way they have provided information about restaurants, menus, walks, and other activities in a folder that you can look at at your leisure. Alan pointed out many things to see and do while we were here, and kept us informed about bad weather... More

Manesty Cottages - a little haven of peace and tranquillity in the most beautiful part of the Country. The Cottages are very well presented and all amenities are easily accessible. Alan and Cheryl are very welcoming, friendly and helpful hosts. The Cottages are located in the most perfect part of the Lake District where the loveliest walks are in abundance... More

Stayed in the studio flat for two nights at the end of July and it was great. The flat was clean and the bed large and comfortable. The views from the window were amazing. We enjoyed the close proximity to Catbells and Keswick and the tariff was highly reasonable. Would certainly stay again.

Just returned from a week staying in Youdale Knot Holiday Caravan at Manesty. The caravan is lovely, very comfortable and warm and had hot water at all times, which you need after a day on the fells. The views from the caravan are beautiful and we could watch the wildlife from the comfort of the living area. We saw many... More

This is a 'special' place, make no doubt about that! We stayed in the shepherds hut, or 'Tommy Bit' as he's known, for 2 nights and we loved him to bits! Days after returning, we are still talking about our experience. The location, the gardens, Tommy Bit, 'our' hot tub, the 2 ducks who politely waited for some bread every... More

My wife and I stayed at Manesty, in The Byte (the luxuary studio apartment) for 4 nights during mid March. I cannot reccommend this place enough. The Byre looks to be quite a new extension to the older building and it is furnished to a high standard. It was very room and light and everything was clean and working as... More
