Very comfortable apartment in convenient location for North Western Lake District area.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Treetops for a week during the autumn. The apartment was warm and comfortable and very convenient for day trips. Marion & John (our hosts) were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. The tourist information in the apartment had plenty of great ideas for days out and Marion kindly lent us her OS maps. Lots of little extras were provided (milk, tea, chocolates, orange juice, fruit, wine etc.) which was a pleasant bonus.

Located about 5 or so miles from Cockermouth this location is absolutely ideal for exploring the North Western Lake District area (Keswick, Loweswater, Buttermere, Crummock, Bassenthwaite, Ennerdale and Derwent Water etc.).

Staying in the Autumn we did of course run the risk of having bad weather, however we didn't and the autumn colours were fantastic.

Peter & Margaret.

Owner's Response: We love to make people welcome to our home and the unspoilt Northern part of the Lakes, away from the hustle and bustle of Windermere. We hope to give a warm and hospitable welcome, just as we would like to find if we were on holiday, and even if the weather isn't good there is plenty to see and do in the surrounding area.

Lovely little apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Treetops for a few nights and loved it. The Wilson's were brilliant hosts and made us feel very welcome, and the tourist information pack in the room had plenty of great walk ideas. Located a few miles from Cockermouth, and about 30 mins drive from Keswick, Buttermere and Ennerdale it was great for day trips.

Although we stayed in winter, in the warmer months it would be a lovely, peaceful place for sitting out in the garden on a night time to relax.

Lovely - would stay there again!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was a perfect base for the two of us to explore the Western Lakes. Kitchen, bedroom and living room were everything we needed and we appreciated the extra touches and the bird table outside. The Wilsons were friendly and helpful hosts. The only (minor) issue was the bathroom facilities were quite noisy after use.

Would definitely come again!

Holiday 2014

  • 5 of 5

John & Marion have always made us feel very welcome & their hospitality is 2nd to none, the appartment is always very clean & homely. 2014 was the 4th year in a row that we have stayed with them & we are currently looking at staying their in August / September 15. There is always a bottle of wine, milk, chocolates & fruit awaiting you upon arrival. On a personal level I spend a lot of time in hotels for business purposes & to be honest very few of them come up to the standard that Marion looks after her apartment. If I ever had to work up in the Lake District I wouldn't think twice to stay anywhere else. Keep up the good work, Andy & Jill xx
