We had a lovely week at Lydia's River Cottage, really appreciated the comfortable and supportive beds, great shower, quality furnishings and lots of attention to detail which made it feel like a home from home. Beautiful setting next to the river. We found a path directly across the road which took us up onto the railway path into Keswick - a lovely 10-15 minute tree-lined and traffic-free walk into the town centre. Highly recommended, we would definitely return.

Such a wonderful stay at Riverside cottage. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. We made good use of the binoculars and bird book each day. It was a treat to eat breakfast on the patio while watching the herons, ducks and mergansers. The location was perfect . Within easy reach of Keswick town centre as well as convenient for exploring the Lake District.

This was a lovely cottage looking over the river. We spotted a heron and several kingfishers. It was truly a home from home, clean and supplied with everything you could need. I especially liked the small clocks on the bedside tables. The cottage was in walking distance of Keswick and we only used the car once during our stay. The beds were comfortable and firm. The parking at the front was really convenient and we used the Sapr shop which is just across the road, very handy. We would definitely return.

The cottage is located just outside Keswick being a short walk in it has parking for 2 cars which is ideal for 5 people staying at the cottage The cottage is very clean and tidy and we always get a lovely cake given to have your cup of tea with when you get there Two bathrooms mean it’s ideal for 5 Overall a great cottage to stay out and enjoy Keswick from

This was our first stay at Lydia’s cottage but we have stayed next door at riverside quite a few times. Both are just lovely. Lydia’s cottage has everything you would need for your stay and I was torn between exploring the northern lakes or just sitting on the patio at the back of the cottage just watching the beautiful river flow past. I have stayed at many properties in the lakes over the years and these 2 are our go to as a family. I can’t recommend both Lydia’s and riverside cottage enough. Lovely houses, great location and beautiful scenery. What’s not to love.

We have stayed at Lydia's River cottage many times it is always clean and welcoming there is everything you will need .there is a pup over the road .also a Garage that sells most things you need. Keswick centre is only about 15 minutes walk with lots of nice places to eat .the market is on Thursday and Saturday. There is also bus stops just outside the cottage so very convenient. A round lovely cottage

A lovely cottage, ideally located within a 10 min walk of the centre of Keswick and with it’s own parking which is at a premium with the town. The cottage was beautifully presented and there was nothing that we wanted that was not provided. A great patio at the back overlooking the river Greta provided some interesting watching of a Heron fishing for tea.

We only come for the lemon drizzle cake, of course. The lovely cottage and beautiful surroundings are just an added bonus. Have already booked for next year.

Lovely stay at Riverside Cottage thank you. Lovely home environment, super river views, local to Keswick and great walks. Lemon cake mud a lovely touch too.

Accommodation was excellent . 15 minute walk into Keswick. Good selection of shops.... and the area & scenery can't be faulted. Bring your own weather .

Used this cottage several times. Ideally placed for great walks in the Lakes. A lovely space benefiting from off road parking. Steve

Lovely clean cottage in a wonderful position a ten minute walk from all the amenities in Keswick. All mod cons including smart tv which is nice at the end of the day. Highly recommended. We will certainly return.

We have stayed at Riverside nine times and it remains firmly our number one choice,it is ìn an excellent location with good parking,it is well equiped and eveything is of good quality.We have stopped at many holiday properties up and down the country but Riverside is the one we judge all others by,this reflects the care and attention given by the owners we could happily live here without altering a single thing.

Lovely, well equipped, great location holiday cottage, owners very helpful from moment we booked. would highly recommend and will definitely stay again.

This was our second stay at Riverside and we were very glad we decided to return. Having such a fantastic view of the river and yet be within easy walking distance of all the facilities in the town is a boon, but we found it so easy to relax in the cottage after our sometimes wet and windy walks in the hills.

There over Christmas and was very happy to find a Christmas tree and some decorations. Just typical of the thoughtful way that Daphne and Michael have set the cottage up for their guests

After annually visiting Riverside cottage for over a decade, we have found our " second" home, comfortable with everything in place to make a brilliant holiday/ break. ~The owners are amenable, friendly & put their guests first, a perfect cottage set in a perfect surrounding, thanks as always.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2nd time at Lydia's Cottage. All our needs were catered for and Keswick has been a place we have been coming back to for years now. We will definitely book the Cottage again as the location is lovely.

Very nice and cozy cottage everything you could want could benefit from a footstool to rest weary legs after a days walking otherwise quite idyllic would go back again.

Really excellent accommodation, in good position, bus stops by the door, lovely patio to sit and watch river rushing by. Decent pub meals opposite in Twa Dogs, good meals Casa Bella and The George. Super walking, service buses are good. Honister Rambler bus (until end October) first class, other valley buses well worth using, saves looking for parking space. Plenty of walking round cottage, high and low, long or short. Riverside cottage has it all!

Riverside cottage is in a great location overlooking the river. We have visited the cottage numerous times over the last eight years and have always found it to be very comfortable, clean and well equipped. The new gas fire makes the lounge very cosy on a cold evening after a walk. I will certainly return in the future.

enjoyed our stay in Lydia's river cottage 30th September/7th October,2017. Stayed twice before the damaging floods. Impressed with the alterations you have done since the floods. Kind regards Maureen, Harold & David Harrison.

Another top class holiday in this delightful cottage!

A Guest rated their experience as Great almost 5 years ago

Cottage was clean, cosy and well furnished. Little surprised there was no liquid soap for kitchen and bathroom. The cake was lovely and a nice touch. A great cottage in a super location with off road parking, I think the owners have got it just right. Will definitely be looking to return. Thanks Steve B.

This is the perfect base for exploring this part of the Lakes and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. Not only was the cottage spotlessly clean and incredibly comfortable, the hosts had gone the extra mile with a welcoming homemade lemon cake, pint of milk and tea bags. Just what you want after a long drive! The riverside setting is gorgeous too, offering endlessly fascinating views whatever the weather. Highly recommended!
