The Cottage has EVERYTHING you need and that view...! I come twice a year and it's still not enough. Thank you Adrian and Rachel for sharing your beautiful home

We've had such a lovely week for our 2nd visit to Ridgeway. The house is so well equipped you relax immediately. The garden is a special place to enjoy the stunning views"

"Peacefully Satisfying"

Amazing place for our 3 generation trip. Grandpa and Grandma are in heaven with the views and the garden, Mum and Dad love the daily hikes through the forest or down to Bassenthwaite lake with the dog, and the 9 year old quotes "This is the BEST house I have ever stayed in!"

"You've nailed it!"

We repeat earlier comments about how well stocked and well thought through everything is at Ridgeway - the views will stay with us when we leave. As hosts you should give yourself a huge pat on the back - you've nailed it!"

"Superb location"

Lovely weekend in Lake District. Great cottage. Very clean. Great amenities with many many extra little touches. Superb location, lovely view from back garden and the rooms. 5 min drive into Keswick and lovely walks all around. Would definitely come again. Thank you!

"A real find"

What a wonderful place to stay! We had a super few days staying in this fabulous cottage with breathtaking views overlooking Skiddaw. We loved the location and the house itself is a real find. Rachel and Adrian have thought of everything and we particularly benefited from the well equipped garage space which was brilliant for drying out all of our wet gear and a wet dog! Great communication from start to finish. Thank you; we can’t wait to come back soon!

"Everything you need in the house"

Excellent spot, once you sit out in the morning sun on the patio it's hard to move on. Everything you need in the house, and excellent storage for the outdoor gear in the garage.

Stephen, Airbnb guest review, Sept 2020


This cottage is immaculate and has the most stunning view of the countryside. From the moment we walked in and saw the welcome gifts left by Adrian, we knew we’d want to stay for even longer than we’d booked! The surrounding area is beautiful and has easy access to Keswick and a multitude of walks. Everything you could need on a holiday is provided for at the cottage from maps to games and baking utensils. This is a 5 star property and we already can’t wait to return!

"Ridgeway deserves more than 5 stars!"

Ridgeway Cottage deserves more than five stars! Adrian and Rachel have thought of everything anyone would need. This lovely, super clean, beautifully appointed home has it all. I dare say the kitchen is better stocked than any place I’ve ever stayed and utensils, cutlery, crockery, glassware, and cookware were of very high quality, not the usual odd bits and bobs one finds in rentals. It is appreciated! Beds are super comfy which is so important after a long day of sightseeing. Saying the view is magnificent is an understatement, and close to many wonderful places to explore. This part of England should be on everyone’s list! Thank you for providing such a wonderful place to stay. You need look no further for the perfect place to hang your hat!

"Beautiful patio and garden"

Fantastic cottage in stunning location. Incredibly well equipped and furnished to a very high standard. Garage is very well set up for dogs and hikers. Beautiful patio and garden with an even better view. All round, everything we look for in a cottage and more!

"Numerous thoughtful touches"

Ridgeway is close enough to Keswick to benefit from the conveniences but far enough away to be peaceful during the busy summer season - and that view is simply stunning whether you are in the lounge, dining room or one of the front two bedrooms. Arriving at the house we were at first impressed with the cleanliness and design and then, over time, it’s the numerous thoughtful touches that means you want for nothing. Every utensil, towel, boot warmer, DVD or whatever else you think you need seems to have been thought of and is there somewhere. We really enjoyed our stay and heartily recommend Adrian and Rachel’s place to anyone

Richard, Airbnb guest review, Aug 2019

"Brilliant hosts"

This property and the views it offered took our breath away! Wonderful property in the heart of the Lake District with spectacular views. Adrian and Rachel are brilliant hosts and have equipped this property with everything you would need to make your stay as comfortable as possible. They’ve been caring hosts and it’s evident in their personal touches at the property and communication prior to and throughout our stay. Being able to view the beauty of the Lake District from the most of the rooms in the home and outdoor seating area is something we loved and will cherish the memories for years to come. We cannot wait to visit again! Thank you both for everything!

"The best equipped home"

This home is probably the best equipped home we've used on Airbnb. It's in a beautiful and quiet spot with a great view, close enough to Keswick and easy access to the hills without needing to take a car again. We'd definitely stay here again.
