“Comfy, well equipped cottage.”
Reviewed 4 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed at Setrah Cottage for 4 nights, to visit the Lake District. The cottage is comfortable and provides all the amenities required. However, the stairs to the bedrooms are very steep and the main bedroom is very cramped, with nowhere to put a suitcase, fortunately the second bedroom is more spacious which we used to store our things. Having said that it is a clean and cosy cottage, and quite adequate with a particularly well equipped kitchen with a washer dryer which proved very useful. It is a few miles from supermarkets and restaurants but with a little planning worked well for us. It is in a very quiet location and the scenery is just beautiful and we spent our days travelling through magnificent countryside. Bothel is close enough to pop across the border and spend a day in Scotland which is what we did. Overall a very pleasant time had in this quaint cottage and I will recommend it but not to those who cannot handle steep stairs.

Liked best: The quietness and beauty of the countryside.
Liked least: The steep stairs and the size of the bedroom. Should have been advised about the stairs.

“Very nice cottage in quiet area”
Reviewed 26 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, clean bathroom...what more do you need? Small but adequate living room. Only one pub in town (3 minute walk) and it is not too good. No other stores in town. Location is just north of the Lake District. About 15 minutes to Cockermouth and Keswik. Very nice one mile walk to next village north with very old church. We had one issue with the heat and response to our call was very prompt. No wifi which was disappointing.

“tidy cottage fully equipped for great holiday”
Reviewed 15 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The cottage was clean, well furnished and had everything we needed for our weeks stay in the northern lakes. Walks around Skidaw are lovely and the surrounding areas near Kesick make this a good location as only 15 mins by car to Keswick. Our dogs were most at home and the secure garden made it a very peaceful stay. Very friendly locals who were keen to chat. Would definitely stay again. Have used stay Lakeland twice in six months and been most satisfied.
