Another fabulous 2 weeks. Weather was brill, great walks and the most lovely fab hosts! Couldn’t wish for more. A home from home. Nothing too much trouble. Shall miss you all. House so lovely and clean. Big thank you to Julia and John for everything.

The best cottage we have stayed in. Thanks John and Julia.

Thank you Julia! Probably the best self catering accommodation we have ever stayed in. Absolutely perfect!

— Marel and Ron, June 2019


Feel so utterly blessed to have stayed in this wonderful cottage. Julia, thank you so much for everything. It has all been such a lovely experience from beginning to end. Thank you to John also.

Amazing week. Cottage and everything about it superb. Wonderful hosts and a beautiful part of the Lakes to stay. Lovely to come back and relax outside, so near to Keswick but could be miles away.

— David and Anne, May 2019


3rd visit! Another wonderful week with wonderful landlords! Perfect in every possible way – sadly we have to go home. More to explore next time – booked 4th visit already.

— Janet and Alan, May 2019


Julia and John have set an extraordinarily high bar in terms of the quality of the accommodation and attention to all the fine details which make for a perfect holiday. Scots Pine will live long in our memory and be at the top of our list for our next visit in the Keswick area.

— Ian and Nicky, April 2019


Definitely home from home. We have loved our few days here. John and Julia’s attention to detail have made Scots Pine so comfortable. We didn’t want to leave and we’ll certainly be back. Thank you very much.

— Caroline, Bradley, Nathan and Caitlin, April 2019


A lovely place to stay. Everything you could need and more. An excellent welcome and a good location for heading to the shops or the launch and for a walk. Thank you!

— Chris and Elizabeth, April 2019


We’ve stayed in many cottages in the Lakes and this is the best one of them all. Home from home doesn’t cover it at all – it’s better than that. Everything is perfect, from the beautiful furnishings and comfy beds to the peaceful elevated location. Julia is the perfect host; from the minute we got there her only aim was to make sure our stay was perfect and it definitely was. We came as guests and left with two new friends in Julia and John.

— Colette and Stan, April 2019


Scots Pine is a beautiful cottage, so thoughtfully and tastefully furnished. Everything you need is here. A true reflection of Julia and John who so obviously want you to enjoy every minute of your stay. Fantastic walks and views! Thank you for a wonderful few days.

— Anthea, March 2019


Our first but not last visit to this fabulous cottage. Julia and John have made this the perfect place to stay. Thank you for your help and for all the extra luxuries.

— Margaret and Peter, March 2019


Perfect. An immaculate cottage beautifully presented. Really appreciated all the thoughtful extras; flowers, chocolates, wine, biscuits. Will highly recommend and hopefully return in the near future.

— Brian and Lyndsay, February 2019


Feeling completely restored once again on our third stay here at Scots Pine. Julia and John’s dedication to the sustained perfection of this magical place is truly incredible. Thank you once again for surrounding Scots Pine in love for all to share. See you later in the year.

— Allison and James, January 2019


Really sad to be leaving. Made Christmas special for us. Scots Pine now has a special place in our hearts and we can’t wait to return. Many many thanks.

— Graham and Julie, Christmas 2018


This is our home from home. Wouldn’t stay anywhere else!

— Gail and Chris, December 2018

For the second time we stayed at Scots Pine. What a great week it was!! Thanks Julia and John, you are super! See you next year – staying for 2 weeks!

Well, what can I say that hasn’t already been said – wonderful cottage, quality furnishings and spotlessly clean. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful cottage. We had a relaxing stay, bed was so comfy and thank you Julia for everything, from the ease of booking to your very warm welcome. Please say goodbye to Alfie – we will miss his little face through the gate!!

— Sue and Nigel, June 2018


Scots Pine is probably the best holiday cottage I’ve ever stayed in. The owner has thought of everything. It’s often the small things that make the biggest difference and there are 100’s of small things here. We will definitely come again.

— Jane, June 2018


Heaven meets earth here at Scots Pine. So much love surrounds this place bringing peace and restoration of mind and soul. Thank you Julia and John.

— Allison and James, May 2018


We have been blown away by our stay. Julia has been so accommodating – allowing us to arrive on Easter Sunday. providing Easter eggs and chocolate galore plus Prosecco, for a special occasion. This is easily the highest standard cottage we have stayed in. The warm welcome was fabulous!

— Karen, April 2018


Thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to your beautiful cottage Julia. Thank you for your warm welcome and for everything you did to ensure that our stay here was a positive experience.

— Evelyn, March 2018


Slept and slept, recharged and refreshed. Knew it would be lovely and wasn’t disappointed. Lovely to be back. Just the job. Thank you for the little piece of heaven you have here!

— Jenny, February 2018


Stayed at Scots Pine over the New Year. Owner couldn’t have been more helpful, and very good instructions provided for the equipment which was excellent. Everything was spotless less clean. So many thoughtful touches provided, from dressing gowns, and bathroom accessories to sweets, cake, tea and coffee. We had a relaxing stay and made use of the Games, DVD’s and books in the evenings. A throughly good week – with walks from the doorstep.
