Dodd cottage is beautiful, as is the view from the garden. We had a wonderful week and can't wait to return.

The cottage was cosy and had everything we needed for a long weekend family gathering. It was a joy to come back to at the end of a day walking. We loved the peaceful surroundings and amazing views (once the fog lifted!). The outside area and gardens are beautifully kept.

A lovely cottage in wonderful scenery in the middle of nowhere. The shared garden areas with chairs/loungers/barbecue and watching the birds feed from the numerous bird tables was an additional bonus.

The cottage was delightful with an added bonus of having its own garden so we could have meals outside - ideal for my dog !! Very handy not being very far from Keswick - ideally situated in stunning countryside !!

I just love this cottage - it's a very peaceful place which is brilliant for chilling out! It is nice and cosy with the kitchen/sitting room as one area..and its dog friendly! I like the garden where you can sit at the picnic table and eat/drink and take in the view and your dog is safe as its fenced. Keswick is just down the road and there are loads of wonderful places to walk/visit - just perfect!
