Fabulous cottage. Absolutely spotless and equipped with everything that you need for a break. The linen and towels were luxurious and the bed was supercomfy. Could not have found a better location. Just at the foot of Blencathra with amazing views from the living room and patio. Within walking distance of two excellent pub restaurants (although a steep walk back). Last but not least, the owner Val is one of a kind. Could not have found a better host. We will return without a doubt. Highly recommended.
i'd give it 6 stars if i could.
nestled at the foot of Blencathra's southern slope with a view out the back patio across the valley opposite (to include Valerie's very pretty, well-maintained garden), you could just stay there and sip tea or wine and look out the double glass sliding door and see everything the Lakes has to offer from your seat!
of course, we did more than that, but we definitely enjoyed some rainy down-time doing just that. the cottage is well-appointed to keep you warm and provided-for should you choose to remain inside, with Valerie nearby when you needed her or fancied a charming chat!
my navigator didn't seem to want to make me stop halfway up the hill. don't do that! continue up to the top and turn left when you see the little car park on the right, and you'll see Sunnyside Cottage on the left, with a row of off-street parking.
even though you are a minute away from the A66 giving you quick access to Keswick and Penrith, you are far enough up the hill that you can't hear any motor traffic.
highly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to visit the Lake District!
Had a wonderful long weekend at Sunnyside Cottage.
Stunning views, faultless accommodation. Lovely walks around Threlkeld. Two great pubs. Close to Keswick.
Would definitely recommend, and will look to book again next year.
My partner and parents stayed here and absolutely loved it. Amazing views from the cottage of some of the fells in the Lake District. Well placed for getting to some of the less touristy lakes and only a 10 minute drive from Keswick to go for meals out in the evening. I could not recommend it enough!
The three of us wanted a comfortable, assessible place to say - one of the couple I was with uses a wheelchair though walks with a crutch indoors. Valerie welcomed us despite our 9pm arrival and showed us around. The place was clean, the beds comfortable and we had all we needed. Off-street parking for 2 cars at the front-door was a bonus.
As others say, the view from the lounge is panoramic and priceless.
Many thanks. Certainly recommended.
We had a lovely few days here. The view is stunning, flat is clean and comfortable and it's a great place for walking right from the doorstep. We enjoyed some lovely walks, including challenging hike up Blencathra. A shame the sofa in the flat faced the wrong way but we turned it round so that we could see the view from the lounge! We enjoyed eating out on the terrace with the beautiful view of the garden and the mountains. We'd love to come back and it would be great for a family holiday with several adults as we could also rent the larger flat next door, sharing the terrace!
