Riverside Cottage is a lovely, luxurious, owner-maintained cottage in a quiet location, with River views and easy access to great walks as well as close to the Keswick shops and restaurants. We have stayed there in different seasons with our teenage/ young adult daughers. In summer, it is great to have a quiet cuppa on the terrace after a busy day, just watching the birds (and canooers) and listening to the river talk. In colder seasons, it is a cosy, warm and friendly place to come back to after walks. Pleasant kitchen-diner, comfy lounge, both with their own tv, well-decorated bedrooms and two bathrooms. Daphne's lemon drizzle cakes that welcome guests on arrival are famous by now, and we can't wait to visit again later this year.
This is the third or fourth time we've stayed in Riverside and we've yet to find another cottage to match it. We certainly hope to come back again
It's an ideal cottage in an ideal situation overlooking the River Greta and only a short walk into the centre of Keswick. Lots of activities and tourist attractions nearby, good eating places in the town if you don't feel like cooking, lots of wildlife (just sit on the back patio and see the heron, kingfishers, dippers and goosanders) plus the beautiful view along the river. Set back from the main road so very quiet and peaceful.
Facilities are great, especially the newly refitted kitchen and the new shower, and the accommodation is very spacious and comfortable.
Riverside cottage has been our holiday break destination for over a decade now, we return there because it has all the comforts & is a extremely well appointed cottage. There is everything you need to make it just like home from home. So restful with the River Derwent burbling at your back door, as you sit on the patio enjoying a nice glass of wine or two, whilst watching the local & varied wildlife. It close proximity to Keswick town, a mere 15 minutes walk & access to the surrounding fells make it an ideal spot to enjoy leisurely pursuits. The owners do a fantastic job in the upkeep of this holiday property, well worth time out here, many thanks from all our family who have all enjoyed its pleasures with us.
