Always a pleasure to stay at Millside Cottage, this is our third year, speaks for itself. Cannot think of a negative, everything was great especially the lovely gas living flame fire, just the ticket after a day on the hill.

“Millside Cottage Braithwaite”
Reviewed March 4, 2017 for a stay in February 2017
2
people found this review helpful

This is our 3rd stay in Millside Cottage, it is a lovely place to stay any time of the year - nice walks and a loverly atmosphere in the village itself. Braithwaite is a nice little village with a well stocked shop and a couple of lovely pubs for something to eat and drink!
The cottage is spotless, has everything you would need for a stay, well stocked kitchen, comfortable living area and bedrooms. We have never had any need to contact the team/owners but numbers are available in the house if you need them.
Would recommend anyone to stay here, like I say we have visited 3 times before and will defiantly be going back!

Our little family of 3 stayed at the wonderful Millside Cottage for a long weekend over New Years.

The stunning location and perfect cottage made it the most wonderful stay. The cottage is finished to a high standard, is very cosy and really well appointed; It offers everything you need, with the added bonus of a warming fire. The location is excellent with three pubs and a well stocked village store within walking distance and stunning scenery with endless walks from the doorstep. Highly recommended and we will definitely be back!

“Another great week”
Reviewed December 10, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Another great week in this beautiful cottage. Everything you need for a self catering break is included in this cottage. This includes a novel remote control gas fire. Will definitely book again for next year. Weather was good for the time of year and got better as the week progressed.

Excellent cottage. Spacious with all mod cons. Great kitchen and smashing sun room.
Location is wonderful with a great little shop at the end of the street and open all hours. Wonderful pubs in the village and so close to Keswick. Great walks from the cottage so no need to use the car. We also caught the honiston rambler bus to Seatoller and walked back to Braithwaite. Fab walk.

“An excellent well equipped cottage”
Reviewed June 24, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

A very well appointed cottage in a beautiful village. The cottage was spotless and had everything you need for your holiday. Both the owners and the agency we booked with are on hand if you need them although we didn't. I would recommend using Keswick Cottages to book your self catering stay in the lake district. We have used it for a number of years and have no complaints about the service they give.
