“A little gem in wonderful countryside location with superb views”
Reviewed 10 May 2011 for a stay in May 2011

We have just returned from Southwaite Green having spent 5 days staying in the cottage called "Skiddaw", 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, open plan living room (upside down) you sleep downstairs and open plan living/kitchen/dining is on the first floor to take in the wonderful views. There is an outside deck area with table/chairs and overlooking fields and mountains in the distance - absolutely superb quiet location near to the north lakes of Buttermere/Crummock Water where there are ample walks. Eco friendly environment (see their own website) which works well and yes, it really is 5* accommodation. You are just 2 miles from Cockermouth but feels like you are in the middle of nowhere. If you want a quiet relaxing time in comfort then Southwaite Green is for you, really I could not fault it. The kitchen is well stocked which means you can cook anything and there is a small dishwasher so no washing up (always a bonus)! There is also a washing machine on site with a washing line attached to the wall outside your own cottage for drying it really is "home from home" but with spectacular views. We are reasonably well travelled and Southwaite Green offers top notch facilities and beautiful surroundings - I can wholeheartedly recommend it.

“Look forward to returning”
Reviewed 8 April 2011 for a stay in April 2011

Had a great weekend in the Lakes with my parents, my husband and the dog! Skiddaw cottage was beautiful - the beams and upstairs lounge and kitchen had breathtaking views. The cottages were set in a quiet location with a nice walk around the site which was ideal for mornings and late nights for Jess the dog! My husband said the only thing lacking was a pub closer by! Marna was very helpful with suggestions of where to eat locally. We hope to return in the autumn.
