My husband and I had a lovely short break in the appartment with our baby daughter. Perfect location, easy short work to the town centre, park and leisure centre. Excellent facilities like a washer dryer and fully equipt kitchen, made our stay very comfortable.Very relaxing few days, thank you.

“Lovely holiday for a couple”
Reviewed May 13, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The cottage is very comfortable, immaculate and well facilitated, we had no problems with it at all. It's in a very good location, within short walking distance of amenities such as supermarket and central bus station & Keswick itself is stunning. Very good value for money!

Had a great stay at the Riverside Cottage. The cottage is very well equipped, spotlessly clean and had everything you could need for your stay.
After a long day walking it was lovely to come back to a comfortable and warm 'home' and I have to mention that the shower is amazing!!
The location is perfect just a short walk from the town centre for all the shops and restaurants.
Jana was very welcoming and made sure we had a lovely stay.
Would recommend this place to anyone and we home to come back and stay again.

“Fantastic holiday home”

We visited Riverside Cottage over Easter Weekend. From our initial enquiry through to staying at the cottage and eventually leaving, the owner Jana, couldn't do enough for us. The cottage itself is fabulous, a large living / dining / kitchen area, bedroom and shower room. Everything was spotlessly clean and the kitchen was so well equipped we ate in the cottage every morning and night.
This cottage is the best we have stayed in in the lakes. Book it, you won't be disappointed, but please leave a week for us later in the year!
Thankyou Jana and Martin for a wonderful stay.

“A well appointed apartment”

Jana and Martin's apartment in Keswick is very comfortable and well located in terms of proximity to the township which is a welcome advantage when travelling. The lakes district itself is very scenic. We used the bus service to get to the towns and lakes along the way as the roads can be quite narrow and dangerous for visiting drivers. Couldn't fault the apartment in terms of cleanliness and general comfort.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed April 6, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Me and my husband returned last Monday from a long weekend in Keswick. After reading through countless reviews on Trip Advisor to find a place for our first stay in the Lakes we decided upon Riverside Cottage. It ticked all of our boxes for location and quality and alongside the great reviews it came at an excellent very competitive price. We certainly were not disappointed. Jana was just lovely and was there next door to give us some advice on our planned walk when we needed it, yet she was totally non-intrusive.
The location of the cottage is excellent, just a 5-10 min walk to the town centre in one direction and to gorgeous countryside in the other. We immediately felt at home and the cottage was immaculate and stylish throughout with excellent quality fittings and furnishings and underfloor heating. Everything seemed to have been thought of including a selection of dvd's and lots of local information booklets. The bed was exceptionally comfortable with top quality linens and pillows and we appreciated there being a TV in the bedroom as well as in the living area.
We found Keswick very bustley with a lovely friendly atmosphere. Great market on Saturday too. It had such a pleasant holiday feel and was a delight to walk round with lots of boutique- style shops and quaint tea rooms in abundance. The walk down to Lake Derwent was so lovely too and the scenery fantastic. Which ever way you turned there were mountains all around; quite spectacular really. We had a lovely 50 min trip round the lake and spent hours ambling around the little streets looking in the shops.
To sum up we had a fabulous time and have fallen in love with the area. We felt very much at home in Riverside Cottage from the moment we stepped inside and thought everything to be of excellent quality. It was exceptional value. We would love to return and although we would like to explore other areas of the Lakes we thought Keswick and the surrounding areas with it's magnificent scenery was fabulous and wouldn't hesitate to stay at Riverside Cottage again.
