Idyllic peaceful haven

Spent a relaxing few days in this exceptional cottage. It was absolutely pristine and really well equipped. The location was just perfect for the break we needed with lovely views from the rear of the cottage. Keswick was just a short drive away as was Cockermouth. Can definitely recommend.

Gorgeous little cottage

We needed somewhere to stay for the Keswick Mountain Festival and Little Byre was where we chose. It's an easy 30 minute drive into Keswick so not too out of the way if you want a day trip to town. Although we didn't spend too much time at the cottage we found it very clean and comfortable and really well equipped. Beds were super comfy, especially after an 18 miles walk. But I would suggest getting a heavier curtain on the single room window as the light does come through early during the summer, and the moonlight shines through at night too. The wine and biscuits went down a treat. I can see how parking may have been an issue but we were lucky on our stay and even if you had to park in the next village it was still only 5 minutes to walk back to the cottage so not really a massive issue.

Cute place, nice new kitchen, quiet location.

My wife and I stayed in Little Byre for four nights in late September. The two-floor interior has had a lot of care put into it...very nice appointments and a new kitchen with new appliances and cookware. The owner sent us a very nice two-page letter detailing places to eat, things to see and do, and other information about the cottage and the area. There is a nice television and fireplace. Because of the nature of the building we share walls with the immediate neighbors, so we were requested to be quiet after 10 and not to flush toilets during the night etc. Little Byre was very clean and cozy and comfortable. The wooden stairway and upper floors creak when walked on, only a problem at night when one wants to be quiet. Also, there is an unexpected step outside the master bedroom door -- leave a light on at night so you see that step! The big problem we encountered had to do with parking. Little Byre sits on a VERY narrow road, wide enough (at best) for a parked car along (within inches of) the building that houses all the cottages, and one traffic lane with so little room to spare that we were requested by the owner and also in person by one of the residents to pull in our side mirror to make room! There are no designated parking spots for each of the cottages, and residents can and do park freely in front of other people's cottages (including a big red SUV in front of Little Byre), so finding a place to park becomes a first come first served situation which could easily have left us with no place to park. The problem was resolved for us because one of the cottages was for sale and unoccupied, so we parked in front of that one. Had that not been the case, we were told by the owner and a somewhat irritated resident to park at the bottom of the hill but the three places there were taken every time we looked. Parking issues aside, Little Byre gave us a quiet place to stay for our daytime forays into the Lake District.
