Great hospitality. Hosts could not do enough to make your stay most welcoming. Excellent facilities and close to scenic spots
We have just spend the most wonderful week in this lovely cottage. Family orientated, secure, charming, welcoming, cosy...it's a delight! It met all our needs and more. The hosts were wonderful and had thought of everything.
A basket of homemade goodies welcomed us, along with the opportunity to purchase more throughout the week. The novelty of ordering the local ice cream man delighted our wee ones. They had the firsthand opportunity to experience farm life by helping feed the calves at night, which they loved. A secure garden with toys allowed us to enjoy a warm, quiet coffee!
The house itself was immaculate and kitted out to the highest of standards. Perfect for relaxing at night, cosied by the log burning stove.
We filled our week with local activities and some further down into the lakes...there is still so much to do! We'll be staying here when we return
Just returned from a 10 night stay at the Old Bothy and had a fantastic holiday. The accommodation was superb, clean and modern but retaining original features such as exposed stone work and beams which was great. Joanne and Martin were welcoming hoasts providing everything needed for a family stay - Joanne even left out games and books suitable for my children. The kids loved being on the farm with all the animals - petting the farm dogs, feeding the calves and even getting to see a calf being born. There is plenty to do in the area as only 20 minutes from Keswick and the beautiful Lake District scenery, even the weather was good! I would definitely recommend The Old Bothy and hope to visit again.
Book early to save any disappointment.
This cottage is superbly equipped and well presented to provide a very comfortable holiday base, along with the very helpful host and set in an ideal location,
it makes the prefect place to stay, for touring Cumbria.

We stayed at The Old Bothy with our children (5 & 8) during the Easter holidays. The standard of the accommodation is exceptional with the little touches really making it special - welcome basket with home baking, stoked log burner, soft toys on the children's beds...Holiday highlight was Martin and Joanne showing us around their farm and our children feeding the calves.
