Couldn’t have wished for a cosier self catering cottage to enjoy the Lakes from. It is exactly as the photos show with immaculate décor and so many personal touches that really make the difference when you walk in and want a home from home. Plum Tree Cottage Keswick would be my first search next time I am looking for a break in the Lakes.

—Simon, Hampshire

Where to begin… our trips to the lakes keep us sane and our stay in Plum Tree Cottage Keswick couldn’t have been more perfect. Milk, tea, coffee, washing tablets for the dishwasher and washing machine all well thought out and useful. Logs for the woodburner… wonderful! The luxury cottage itself is beautiful, nicer than our own home! We were tempted to change the locks!

—Lisa, Rich and Jensen

What an absolutely stunning self catering cottage – couldn’t have asked for anything more. Although the pics on the internet were lovely they definitely don’t do it justice!! The log burning fire was a massive treat and made the cottage very cosy, especially with a complementary bottle of fizz! We would only be repeating what other guests have written so will sign off with a massive THANK YOU! Will definitely be back soon.

—Kathryn and Andy

This has been the perfect place to unwind and relax. We have wanted for nothing and enjoyed the touches of luxury. The log burner has done overtime and we have slept soundly in the extremely comfortable beds after our walks on the fells. We have stayed in Keswick many times and this is our favourite place by far. It could become a regular place for us. Thank you.

—Melanie, Sean and Grace

Thanks for a wonderful stay in a beautiful cottage – the perfect place to spend a week away from London!

This is now our new favourite cottage. The photos on the web don’t disappoint. It was a very comfortable base to return to everyday. Everything was provided to make for a very relaxing stay. We hope to return.

Plumtree cottage was everything we had hoped for and more-a stylish home from home with everything we needed for a stay in our favourite place. We found the house much more spacious than it looks in the pictures and it was very comfortable for four adults. WE would definitely recommend…

—Peter – January 2020

Really loved our stay! It was the 2nd time we had booked here and really want to make it an annual event

— Linda – January 2020

A lovely cosy cottage, close enough to walk into town. But not be constantly in the hub of it. Lots of nice places to eat.

— Allistair – February 2020

We enjoyed a long (big birthday!) weekend in this beautiful cottage, interior was just gorgeous and on a practical level had absolutely everything you needed to enjoy a very comfortable stay. With more than enough space for the 2 of us, and a huge master bedroom, there was also another double (but much smaller) bedroom upstairs and a compact bathroom with a good shower. The owners had thoughtfully left cake and milk for us, and a pile of logs for the wood burner which we didn’t use in the end as the heating was so good. The cottage is situated in a quiet street, a short walk from the centre of Keswick, with easy on street parking and lots of good places to eat nearby. Would definitely like to return.

—Wayne – February 2020

Lovely cottage. Would definitely book again.

—Family – February 2020

Fab 4 days except for storm Caira. Such a nice cottage to be holed up in though.

—Angela – March 2020
Crewe, Cheshire

Absolutely beautiful cottage! Very comfortable and cosy! Had everything you could possibly need. Kitchen very well stocked with equipment, beds and sofas very clean and comfy as was the whole cottage! Very well situated for walking into Keswick, only 10 mins at most to get to shops and lake about 5mins further on! Really enjoyed our stay to wind down and relax in beautiful setting! Would highly recommend, plenty of room for just 2 people and would still be spacious enough for 4!

—Karen – March 2020

The cottage was a spacious, warm and cosy home from home. It was well equipt with everything we could possibly need. It was spotlessly clean and well cared for. We would definitely stay there again.

—Linda August 2020

Pretty cottage in a quiet street within easy walking distance of the town centre. Exactly as it looks in the photos and well equipped and very clean. We appreciated the milk, tea, coffee and cake left for us as well as ample supplies of hand wash, sanitiser, dishwasher and washing machine tablets…..we were only able to make use of the pretty front garden a couple of times for a relaxing drink, due to the rain, but appreciated the red geraniums in a trough on the front windowsill which really cheered us up when we couldn’t get out!!

—Rachel – September 2020

We had a lovely week at Plum Tree Cottage! The beds were the most comfy we have ever experienced in a holiday cottage – we slept really well and enjoyed the comfort of the lounge after long walks on the fells in addition to being able to feel the last of the days sunshine sitting in the garden on the days when the weather let us!

—David – September 2020

Lovely house in the centre of Keswick. Very clean and well equipped. Lovely decor and excellent quality furniture etc. Owner very quick at responding to any (small) issues. Friendly neighbours! No designated parking, simply on street but we stayed over a bank holiday and even then parking near the house wasn’t an issue.

—Jayne – September 2020

Plum cottage is a beautiful well equipped cottage in a great location in Keswick.

—Stuart – September 2020

This was our second stay at Plum Tree Cottage within 2 months, which I think says it all.
Lovely, well equipped, house near the centre of Keswick. Nothing to fault…..main bedroom has a huge, very comfortable, super-king bed.

—David – November 2020
