"If you want to stay and visit Keswick but don't want to be in town, then this accommodation is in a great location being about 5-7 minutes drive away in a rural very quiet village location, in fact it was ideal for the two of us and our two dogs. Apart from the Pottery 30 seconds away, which serves nice tea/coffee and cakes, there is nothing else there but we found it great to be able to drive into Keswick which has an abundance of shops and restaurants. You can walk steeply uphill on footpaths from the door into Whinlatter Forest, taking about 20-30 minutes to get to the main visitor centre area. The actual dormer bungalow accommodation is fine; it has a good size driveway and a very small garden with patio, the garden has no lawn so is mainly shrubs. Whilst we were able to keep our dogs within the fenced garden area it is not gated so be careful. Its very easy to criticise small aspects of the accommodation as others in the Visitor Book have done so over many years and in isolation not major problems, but are helpful suggestions to improve, like needing a mirror in the en-suite, somewhere to hang coats in the hall, a clothes horse, replacement dishwasher cutlery basket, a floor mop etc, none of these had actually been done which is a pity. It had good Wi-Fi connection and the rooms are fairly large. There are great views of the fells particularly from the upstairs rooms. It was nice to have both a downstairs and upstairs lounge with TV in both. There was plenty of china and cutlery, cooking utensils etc. The owners phoned us on arrival and were extremely keen to make sure we were happy with the accommodation; a nice touch. The décor was fine; in places it needs a little TLC and smartening up. It is not luxury accommodation neither is it poor. The showers again were fine, they are electric powered so the flow rate is always going to be limited compared with a pumped or mains pressure shower. If you are tall, then the upstairs bedroom may be an issue in places. The bed was very comfortable. For us the location and views were the main USP, the fact that it needed a little TLC in places was not off-putting. Yes we'll return if they'll have us."

"Pretty little cottage nesting in the hills,quiet and peaceful. 15 minute drive down narrow winding road to nearest village. From previous reviews it seems to be hit or miss with the efforts of the owner....we were a miss! The cottage hadn’t been cleaned from the previous guests, it was after five pm before the owner was contactable and appeared to clean the cottage. As she had not returned our phone calls all afternoon we decided to book into the village hotel for the night. On return the next day the cottage was ready for us. The owner has not attempted to remedy any of the points made on previous reviews- same old worn out sofa and chair, curtains hanging off,threadbare towels, lamp not working, no lights at front door if arriving in the dark,insufficient signage to direct you to the cottage,garden furniture not safe to sit on, Christmas Decorations still on show (for what they were) despite it now being April! I would describe this cottage as unkempt rather than dirty...in need of some TLC .Overpriced for what is provided. I would not recommend this cottage."

"The property is larger than you expect from the photos and is fresh and bright. Unfortunately, the washing machine and tumble drier are in a garage full of rubbish, a large Christmas tree, a burst box of spilling washing powder and a leaking roof which has made every surface very wet - not a clothes or me friendly environment. The tumble drier is £1 coin operated but the new £1 did not seem to fit. There are no hooks to hang any coats in the main house and the upstairs is much chillier than the ground floor - making the upstairs lounge unappealing, even though it has a great view. This is the only property that we have ever booked that has not had a welcome pack of at least tea bags, coffee or sugar - ? is this a Lakes Cottage Holiday norm or just this property as having driven for 7 hours in difficult weather conditions this was disappointing."

"My family gathered in Vermont at Easter. We came from three counties and our party included a baby. The house was very clean, large enough for us all to gather together and yet to find space when we needed some quiet time. The views towards Skiddaw are beautiful and there are walks from the house. There was plenty of cooking equipment and quick dishwasher, or Keswick just a short drive for eating out or a take away. The beds were comfortable and the house very warm. All three cars were parked off road. Coat pegs behind the bedroom doors or a coat stand for dry coats,and some coats pegs in the utility for the inevitable wet coats would have saved us draping them over leather dining chairs and dripping on to the lovely oak floor! But that said we had a truely relaxing break in an absolutely beautiful setting. Would go again tomorrow!"

"We really had a great week at the Vermont,the weather was good and we explored scarf pike,catbells and visited keswick,Ullswater and Windermere and even had time for go ape near Windermere. Where Vermont is also a perfect for walks because there is a forest walk just behind it and a visitor centre only 30 minutes away with a lovely cafe and a smaller go ape/bike hire and well marked paths of different distances from 1 and a half hours to 4 hours The dog in dream land with all the open space and would book it again if he could, The place it self is so well set up with everything you could want and is set in a quiet area well away from the A66. The views are very good from the down stairs living room/kitchen and we spent alot of time in the upstairs as that is so well set up. Will book again in the future"
