“One of the best holidays we have ever had”
Reviewed May 14, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My wife and I took our adult children and two grand-daughters on a family holiday to Brook House 1 in Bassenthwaite. We were thoroughly delighted in every way. The house was spotlessly clean, fully equipped with everything you can imagine, cosy, relaxing and homely. The garden was really lovely and being just opposite the stream, complete with a small play area was perfect for our grand-daughters. The owner was SO helpful and kind. We honesty cannot recommend this holiday home highly enough. Book with complete confidence - you will have a fabulous time.

“Wonderful festive”
Reviewed December 20, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We had three generations of family, a Christmas tree, huge log fire, pub around the corner, warm, cosy and immaculately clean what more can be asked for. Despite the floods, snow and roads being washed away the people of Cumbria were cheerful and very welcoming. Mrs As husband very kindly got us some milk and bread as we were unable to get through to the shops. Mrs A gave us a great welcome and was on the end of the phone with directions and a lovely log fire burning away when we arrived after our journey from Nth Ireland. The beds are comfy and the views from the windows are wonderful, the ducks waddle about and swim in the stream. My grandchildren loved them and so did the adults, they are great fun to watch. All in all we had a great time and will be defiantly be back, thank you so much Allison
Regard Cathy Baker and the family.

Hi, Thank you for your kind review, we aim to please always! Hope to see you on a return visit. Despite the recent news, our village cottages have not flooded . This is an ideal place for country walks, re-charging batteries, and chilling out with beautiful scenery all around you, in our quiet corner of Cumbria, with the added interest of our comical Indian Runner Ducks! Look forward to seeing you all again.

We went as a group of friends for 3 days wanting to climb mountains and see what Keswick had to offer. The cottage is situated in a nice area with a steam at the bottom of the garden and is very spacious it has everything you need . There is a pub around the corner The Sun Inn with delicious food. Skiddaw is only a 5 minute drive and helvellyn a 20 minute drive, we will be going back .
