What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages With Open Fires In The Lake District To Rent.
Val - verified booking
"Generally good holiday property for a large party, good space, furnishings and equipment.Too close to a noisy busy road, which meant sitting outside in the small garden area was not pleasant, so we moved the garden furniture to the front, which worked, although it was not private from other residents at The Terrace. It was also noisy during the night and particularly in the morning, for people who were sleeping on that side of the house.Major irritation was the cleaning team! When some of our party arrived early and wanted to park at the property, they were told that the parking spaces wouldn't be available until 4pm and that their cars would be in the way. This might be acceptable, if it wasn't for the fact that on the day of departure, when our departure time was 10am, some of the cleaning/maintenance team arrived before 9am. One parked his van right in front of the cottage, in a space we had intended to use for loading one of our vehicles. He then sat in the van and stared into the front door watching as we all moved around loading our vehicles. Eventually he sat at the table outside the front, and other cleaning people arrived early also. It felt like vultures were swirling overhead waiting for us to go, and definitely spoiled the last hour of our visit. When we were saying goodbye to other family members at 10am, people who we wouldn't see for another year, they were already in the house and stripping the beds."

"Stayed in Threlkheld before so I knew what to expect. There are 2 pubs. The horse and farrier do excellent food and you can take your dogs in. But it’s very popular so you need to call in advance. The accommodation is very basic, but it has everything you need for your stay. There was even complimentary tea, coffee and milk. Along with washing up liquid etc... the owners kindly let us take a second dog but you need to enquire before you book. Our dogs are fairly small so would be different if you had large dogs. The building itself is very old and the floors and walls are uneven. This added to the overall experience and even though on the main through road it was very quiet. My only niggle was that the windows are old and not very draft proof. This was fairly uncomfortable sitting in the living room. We counter acted this by having the log fire on. There are fantastic views of Blencathra from the landing window and some good walks from Threlkeld. Overall, I’d be happy to return here as it is a great base to explore the lakes - but ideally, you do need a car as there are no shops. Keswick being the closest approximately 4 miles away."

"Fabulous old cottage steeped in history with period furnishing, tons of character and with lots of room to relax. A great location to explore the lakes and West Cumbria.Only a couple of minor issues; Mobile signal is non existent within the thick cottage walls, although we were able to make calls from the upstairs front window seat, however the BT WiFi was great for messenger calls. The log fire in the lounge, although lovely & warming emits some smoke into the lounge, even with doors/windows open to create draft. The grate does not sit fully into the redesigned fireplace which is most likely the cause.These did not spoil our enjoyment and the family had a wonderful time in this lovely cottage."

"This was everything and more we could have hoped for. 'Cute' and 'cosy' are two words that immediately spring to mind in describing Gates Bridge, but that implies a home that's lacking in size or stature, and neither is true: this cottage has great character, charm and heart. The two of us, and our little terrier, were superbly catered for, by the cottage and indeed the village of Caldbeck, an idyllic hamlet with everything you need on your doorstep (pub, cafes, shops) and the perfect starting point for a wider exploration of The Lakes. You have to be very hard to please to give Gates Bridge Cottage anything less than a 9/10. We loved it."

"Very convenient for Keswick, Borrowdale and Ullswater. We were pleased it is so well insulated that you can't hear the A66. Very warm with plenty of hot water and comfy beds. Parking is a bit tricky as there is not always room for a 3 point turn depending on neighbour's cars. View rather compromised by neighbour's eccentric clutter! The children loved the chickens and the den attic area. Could have done with more than one bin bag and more dishwasher tablets. One bedside lamp in main bedroom appeared to be broken and there were no power cables for the dvd player or reclinable sofas. Fantastic pub in Scales. Overall a good place to stay."
