Our third stay at Swinside in 4 years! It was great to be back in the cottage which is like a home away from home. It's perfectly situated for the short 5 min walk into Keswick town centre and all the amenities and to go walking up the fells or out for a drive to other parts of the wonderful Lake District.
We made full use of the fully equipped kitchen this time cooking most nights and enjoying cosy nights in before a late night meander for our pooch to stretch his legs as there is no garden at the property.
If I had to be picky I'd say that the downstairs could do with a spruce up paint wise, some parts are looking dirtier than others, which of course is only natural given the cottage is both dog and child friendly. However this certainly would not put us off coming back to Swinside next time we're in Keswick!
Comfortable good quality interior. Have enjoyed our stay. This place is ideal for town centre, and Keswick well located for other outings
Very happy with our short stay in Swinside, it is a very clean, comfortable and well-equipped cottage, conveniently situated in the heart of Keswick just minutes walk from all its amenities. We will certainly be back, thank you.

We came to Keswick for a long pre-Christmas break and searched hard for a suitable place for us and our dog.
Swinside Cottage has everything you need in terms of furnishings and kitchen equipment, it is practically equipped with hard wearing flooring for ease of cleaning. The kitchen is small but planned out well. The cottage is snug, warm and cosy in a quiet location without any outside noise or disturbance. The bedroom is large with dual aspect windows and a really comfortable bed and plenty of storage space. The bathroom is tidy.
If I was to make any improvements I would add blinds to the bedroom windows and replace the bathroom curtain with a blind along with a Perspex shower door.
It didn’t really work for our dog not having a back door and outside area for her to out to the toilet and thanks to Storm Desmond we completely lost the television reception on the Saturday tea time and then on Sunday the water supply was cut off. Unfortunately it wasn’t a good experience for us so we made the decision to head home a day early.
Have just come back from having a wonderful time in Keswick. Stayed at this gorgeous cottage which was very clean, tidy and had the most comfortable beds! It is fitted out with everything you need and has been renovated to the highest standard. Great pictures on the walls too!
Thank you very much for a wonderful stay!

Really clean and well maintained and with everything you could want for a stay in Keswick. Everything worked perfectly (wifi, shower, heating, tv etc etc) and we will definitely be shortlisting this and booking again.
Comfy bed with almost no outside noise. Slept really well.
Well located just a short walk to the centre. We managed to park right outside but if you cant then park somewhere close and be patient as spaces will become available.
This company are excellent to deal with.
