    "Everything was to a very high standard, including the cleanliness.We appreciated being able to walk from the cottage and walked to Cartmel and back! There are some lovely places to visit in the area and we had family staying at Lakeside Village which was really convenient. We have stayed in many self-catering properties over the years. Customers expect higher standards these days as it's not always the cheapest option, and Keeper's Cottage is at the top of our list. so thankyou to for offering a high standard of property to let."

    "Lots of little unexpected extras - Prosecco, bread, milk, eggs, jams and biscuits left for us. Kitchen supplies eg tin foil. tomato sauce etc, also in the cupboards so we needn't have bought the kitchen sink with us! Have marked down facilities because of: Difficult to use the hob - maybe the pans weren't for induction? Took a long time to cook anything. Fire sensor directly about the grill in the kitchen which meant it went off constantly while grilling! Problem with the radiators in bedrooms 1 and 2 - very bad hammering sound day and night. Reported to owner as probably need draining. Owner kind and attentive. An excellent stay overall. Particularly enjoyed the use of the hot tub."

    "If you like top-notch self catering holiday cottages you will love Keeper's Cottage. The property is furnished and equipped to a very high standard throughout and is spotlessly clean. The downstairs area is spacious, light and warm with a stunning open view from the front. You can enjoy this whilst sitting in the hot tub on the patio, or stay inside and enjoy the ambience of the woodburner. The kitchen is brand new and well equipped. The 2 king-size bed-rooms are characterful (high wooden beams), and are as comfortable as an excellent hotel. The third bedroom is smaller with 2 single beds. All 3 en suite bathrooms are brand new and top quality. The location is very peaceful - no contact with the other holiday properties nearby. Access to southern Lakeland is very easy. We were delighted by Keeper's Cottage."

    "Thought the cottage and entire site was finished to a very high standard, it would be the perfect location for a large wedding party as a full entire rental. The Cottage itself had every tiny detail considered, it was very well cleaned and I would definitely recommend it."

    "Keepers Cottage had everything we needed for a superb upmarket self catering holiday in a stunning setting. They provided every possible thing, (including a muddler for the gin!).

Would definitely recommend!"
    - Miss Burrows, March 2019
    "The view from the hot tub was amazing. The awful weather didn't stop us enjoying the hot tub and the logburning fire soon warmed us up after jumping out back into the house. I loved the heated floors and didn't put my slippers on once. The gorgeous food hamper was a lovely touch. Cartmel is only a 10 min drive away with some lovely pubs and a fab wineshop with a winesnug attached to it for a few cheeky glasses. You've also got the option of picking your own cheese board from the cheese shop ..."
    - Mrs Rix, March 2019
    "The cottage has everything you could need and was finished to a really high standard. The view were to die for especially when sat in the hot tub."
    - Mr Robertson, September 2019
    "Found cottage comfortable and well maintained, would love to go back when weather is better to enjoy the patio more, shame no gazebo or such like available for hot tub or for use with table and chairs. Lynsey and her team were so friendly and made us so welcomed."
