We stayed in the very spacious Manesty Band for a family reunion in June. Fabulous views from all rooms. Alan and Cheryl were incredibly helpful in all ways, but particularly when we needed some advice and they willingly let us use their phone for an important call. The location is hard to beat, all sorts of walking paths start right... More

Just stayed here whilst we were working at a festival in town, cottage was spotless and did just the job for what we needed. Was also in a lovely location, meters from a path that went down to the lake - perfect for runs in the morning! Would say though if your wanting to stay for a relaxing chilled time/holiday... More

We had a wonderful time at the Manesty Holiday Cottages. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and very comfortable and the owners very friendly and welcoming. The views are stunning, the perfect spot to get out and about and explore the lakes.

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
