“Well equiped and comfortable cottage”
Reviewed September 20, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

This cottage is very homely and has everything you need. Good to have off road parking, and it's a ten minute walk into the centre of Keswick.

“Bright, clean, cosy, homely.”
Reviewed July 31, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Great location. Near a good park with a river, fields and a good playpark. A reasonable walk from the lakeside (went most days with children aged 7, 5 and 6 months).
Lots of facilities in kitchen (including blender, lots of utensils). Home is nicely decorated and very bright and pleasant.

“Warm and cosy cottage”
Reviewed February 1, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We booked this at the last minute as we had family staying nearby. When we arrived the lights and heating were on - very welcoming on a damp January evening! The cottage was well-equipped and had everything we needed. Particularly liked the personal touches -books, welcome tray and knitting basket (managed to do a square). The property is in a very quiet position even though the town is within easy walking distance. We appreciated finding somewhere that would take 3 dogs - thank you. The only 'improvement' I can think of would be a lock for the bathroom door - otherwise perfect.

“Excellent, welcoming, cosy and easy access to Town”
Reviewed January 26, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Lovely cottage, very welcoming. Lights and central heating already switched on for our arrival. Gorgeous little touches, fairy lights, welcome tray. Loved the knitting basket inviting guests to knit a square which I did. No traffic sound. Great for walking into Keswick. Felt at 'home'. Highly recommended and would definitely go back.

Hi Liz, Many thanks for your wonderful review of Birchgate. It is so nice for us at Keswick Cottages and the owners of Birchgate to hear that you will be returning and that you appreciated the extra little touches we provide. It is so important to us that you feel welcome and comfortable from the moment you walk through the door which is why the heating will be set and lights on prior to your arrival (especially in the winter months). Hope to see you again soon

“Really nice cottage”
Reviewed January 14, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Very close to town centre - very nice and comfortable. One thing to add - needs an all round shower curtain as water from excellent shower went all over bathroom - ended up mopping floor afterward. But on the whole very clean nice cottage.

Birchgate is a lovely cottage well presented and well equipped. It was very convenient for the town centre of Keswick and ticked all of the boxes. Would definitely recommend to others and would return.
