“Probably the most beautiful holiday cottage in the Lake District”
Reviewed 9 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013
1
person found this review helpful

We have holidayed in the Lake District for many years and this is probably the most beautiful holiday cottage we have stayed in. The location was perfect for us, far enough away from it all for absolute peace and quiet, yet only 10 to 15 minute drive into Keswick. The cottage was beautifully presented, well equipped and absolutely spotlessly clean (you would never know that the cottage allows one dog to stay in the kitchen area). The views from the cottage were amazing from every room, you can lie in bed with a cup of tea in the morning looking out to Catbells and the start of the Newlands Horseshoe. The walks from the door are some of the best in the Lake District, you do not need to get in the car. If you have small children the garden is charming and the most ideal garden to bbq in. You can also go and collect the eggs from the chickens which the children will love (and the mums!). The hosts, Caroline and Tom, are very helpful but not intrusive and the welcome gifts of fresh fruit, and flowers are a lovely touch. Highly recommended. Already booked for a further two holidays!!!!

“Outstanding Accommodation in an Outstanding Location”
Reviewed 9 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

A great little cottage in an outstanding location. We loved everything about this place, immaculate accommodation set in the beautiful New lands valley. A kitchen/dinner with everything you might need and a cosy living room with WiFi and Sky tv to keep the kids happy when the weather stops them from playing in the garden.
If you are looking for a base for a walking holiday or just a beautiful relaxing break away from it all High Snab cottage is a must. As a recommendation we booked for next year before we left!

“The perfect holiday retreat”
Reviewed 18 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We have enjoyed three holidays at High Snab and have now booked our fourth. The cottage is always spotlessly clean, comfortable and well equiped- the best we have stayed in (and we have stayed in a lot).
It is ideal for anyone wanting a peaceful holiday "away from it all", with spectacular views across the valley. There are walks in all direction from the doorstep.
The owners, Tom and Caroline, are very welcoming and helpful.

We have now spent three holidays at High Snab and have already booked for next year! We don't take a vehicle,we travel up to the Lakes on the train,bus to Braithwaite,walk to the farm,Tesco deliver and then we walk...every day in every direction! We've stayed on lots of farms but High Snab is very special and is,without doubt,the best.Beautifully decorated,well-equipped,warm and cosy.Tom and Caroline are perfect hosts,considerate but unobtrusive...always ready to help.We've no wish to go anywhere else!

“Immaculate cottage stunning location”
Reviewed 17 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Our second holiday here and again we were not disappointed. The cottage is immaculate and is very well equipped. The location is stunning with views across the newlands valley, with plenty of walks right from the cottage. Our 2 year old son had a fabulous time especially collecting the eggs from the hens and playing on the climbing frame in the garden. We had a wonderful time and I'm sure we will return!!
