Our second stay here at poppy cottage. I stayed with my mum, dad and little dog Lola. We enjoyed every second, the cottage is well equipped with everything you would ever need and more, a little welcome pack with useful information in, a bottle of wine, biscuits and even a little treat for our dog was amazing to arrive to. Going above and beyond for your clientele just shows how much the owners care. The log burner was on every night without fail (our favourite feature)!! Loads of DVDs to choose from, lots of leaflets with 'things to do in the Lake District' which were really handy. Awesome Chinese takeaway not far from the cottage that delivers (full house Chinese)
would recommend poppy cottage to everyone and anyone! We left the cottage feeling relaxed, happy and content. This cottage is home from home and hopefully we'll return in the near future (I don't wanna leave!!!) Thankyou for letting us share your special little cottage that has given us some amazing memories that we'll never forget.
Lots of love

“Superb, homely, well equiped & pet friendly Cottage”

This cottage is a little gem.
The owners really have thought of everything you may need for your stay, no trips to the shop for basics needed and many extra's you wouldnt expect.
Lovely to arrive to a bottle of wine and Easter eggs.
Very homely,comfortable and exreemley clean.
The gardens are a joy and secure making it pet friendly too... our dog likes to explore and often escape! Breakfast in the garden overlooking the hills is a delight.... surrounding area is lovely and quiet and a good base for exploring the north lakes.
We wanted to stay longer ( we did 3 nights) and plan to return for longer in summer. i cant recommend highly enough :-)

Lovely cottage, ideally situated (a few minutes from Keswick and Cockermouth).
The cottage is equiped with every thing you need. Cosy place to get some rest after the walks the Lake District offers.

“Brilliant Poppy Cottage”
Reviewed April 28, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Everything at/in this cottage is superb! We had a tremendous week travelling,walking, the weather was great,and every night return to the open log fire was really so relaxing,fuel supplied by owners! Local pub, Greyhound Inn very friendly,as all villagers were. The cottage is pet friendly and Milo also had a great time.

Simply superb. A beautiful and peaceful cottage in a great location for exploring the northern lakes. From the moment we arrived we fell in love. A warm homely feel with everything you could need for your stay. The log burning fire is to die for. Can't wait till we stay again.

“Supert Cottage”

Thoroughly recommend Poppy Cottage. It is a delightful small cottage in a great location for those wanting to get out and about, with plenty to see within about 20 minutes by car. The cottage is immaculate, extremely cosy and comfortable and Mark and Lynne have ensured everything is accommodated for, from extra bedding to a wide range of kitchen utensils. From the minute you step in the door you feel welcome, soft lighting, nice and warm and lovely gifts (chocs, wine, eggs). Garden is a little gem and the lovely summerhouse is a bonus - a superb place to spend an hour after a day walking with a mug of coffee and a book or a bottle of vino. The Greyhound pub is about a 5 minutes walk away. We didn't eat there but did enjoy a nice drink with the very hospitable locals. Opportunities for walkers are unlimited. A visit to Dodd Wood (about 10 minutes in the car) is a must, with superb walks to the summit of Dodd Hill. Skiddaw mountain behind Dodd Hill also provides excellent walks for the more adventurous. All in all, a very enjoyable week - highly recommended.
