Visitors Book

The guest comments below have come from both the hardcopy visitors book in the cottage and from the Cumbrian Cottages website.



This is a lovely cottage down a quiet track so an amazing rural location but still only 10minutes to Keswick or Cockermouth if you want the shops. The kitchen is fully equipment so you cook just about anything and there's plenty of room at the table for everyone to site down and enjoy a meal. We had great weather so were able to use the garden and outdoor seating areas for part of the day as well. We'll definitely look to stay here again.

A repeat visit following October last year. This time weather even better, although damp patches allowed a closer examination of the areas tea shops. As always games room much appreciated. All in all another lovely week.

A beautiful rustic cottage set in a lovely garden and area. The games barn was enjoyed by the boys, ideal for the evenings. Weather was not bad for February with very little rain. All in all a fantastic week away

We had a memorable Christmas at Riggs Cottage. We loved the inglenook fireplace, the big kitchen, the games barn and the quirkiness. Very cosy and plenty of space for 8 adults. Recommended.

A spacious and comfortable cosy cottage with plenty of space for 6 people. An added bonus was the games room which helped to provide additional entertainment on the long dark evenings.

Beautiful well equipped cottage, wanting nothing !!!! The drive to the property could be an issue for low cars. Only one pub within a mile, nothing within walking distance of the cottage. However the cottage itself is so good that this should not deter you from booking it. We will definitely be making a return visit .

Our second visit and Riggs still gets our vote as the perfect holiday cottage. Such a warm and comfortable place to stay and the games barn is definitely its USP.

What a great week we've had. The cottage is lovely and very spacious. The cottage is very well equipped. We spent a couple of evenings introducing our son to board games and table tennis. Will definitely visit the Lakes again and if we have a large party will definitely book Riggs Cottage.

The cottage is absolutely wonderful, especially the Games room which was worth its weight in gold for both children and adults. The weather wasn't great but there was still plenty to do and the scenery is beautiful. Would recommend the aquarium in Maryport for a wet day with children.

The perfect holiday cottage! Can't think of anything we needed that was missing, its all here. From log fire to champagne flutes, apple trees & blackberries, the fantastic Games room & Enid Blyton on the bookshelf. The gardeners were lovely and clearly do a great job, we so much enjoyed sitting outside in such lovely surroundings. Would love to come back, hope to see Riggs Cottage again soon.

The cottage is exceptional in every way. Thank you for providing such a superb venue for a family and friends holiday. The facilities and equipment were perfect and the games room a marvellous addition ( lots of contests going on ). Thank you for your wonderful hospitality. The house martin (or is it a sparrow!) is still spending the night on the light switch in the porch. A great holiday - thank you.

Wow, what a beautiful stone cottage. The most perfect Lakeland retreat. Had an absolutely fantastic week at Riggs Cottage. Lots of extra touches that put Riggs a cut above the rest. Beautiful, well maintained cottage garden. Even saw the little bird that sleeps in the porch! Thanks, we will definitely be back.

Very enjoyable week with all the family. We had amazing weather and have found the Riggs a wonderful peaceful location. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped, all our needs catered for. The snooker and table tennis were a big hit with the youngsters and great for the evenings. We have enjoyed some of our meals outdoors under the parasol, the garden is relaxing, the bird song and the stream trickling down makes it so enjoyable. Thank you for your welcoming wine and Kendal mintcake for our energetic walks. We will no doubt see you again.

We had a wonderful week and we all immediately felt at home here. There was plenty of space for us to be together or to engage in separate activities without impinging on others. (The conservatory made an excellent reading room for an old timer like me). Highlights were : watching the baby birds fledge from their nest in the wall of the games room, having the company every evening of the bird that roosts on the light switch in the porch. We hope to return to this beautiful place in the future. Our thanks to the cottage owners.

We has a lovely time at this big, pretty, spacious cottage. The weather was perfect and the games barn was great! Even though we had people aged 3-65 we found the cottage good for all ages. We will recommend it to our friends and family.

Thank you for a brilliant week at the cottage. We made full use of the games room, even if we couldn't beat the 20 break barrier, and the barbecue and outdoor area in some unseasonally dry and warm Lake District weather. The facilities at the cottage are first rate, and the beds are extremely comfortable. The cottage is ideally located for all activities in the Lakes. The Pheasant at the bottom of the hill does good food but it is best to book in advance.

We have had a lovely week at the cottage and would definitely come back again. The cottage has a lovely, friendly and peaceful feel about it and is equipped with care and attention to detail, even down to logs, kindling and matches for that gorgeous inglenook. Would love to be snowed in here at Christmas!
30/08/14 - Newark


We have had a fantastic week and really relaxed. The facilities at the cottage are superb and allowed us to enjoy a relaxing week. The location of the cottage is good as we didn't have to drive more than 15 mins to find a number of great days out. Thank you for a fantastic holiday we will definitely return at some point.

A great holiday in a lovely cottage! The barn is wonderful - we had just enough rain to make full use of it. Kitchen is well equipped. And the utility room useful when washing for a young baby. Thanks for the wine and Kendal mint cake - a nice touch. The setting is beautiful and we enjoyed the garden, outside tables and sun umbrella.
19/07/14 - Derby, Newcastle, Doncaster


Cottage equipped at a luxurious level. Thanks for the mint cake and the bottle of wine. The barn was much appreciated! Had a great time.

We have had a great week in this lovely comfy cottage. The weather has been kind to us and four of the party climbed Scafell. We have walked at Whinlatter, taken boats at Derwentwater and Ullswater, and the train from Ravenglass to Dalegarth too. We loved the games room, great after dinner entertainment. Thank you so much.
