Visitors Book

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

Had an amazing week with family (6 adults) in this comfortable, stylish, well -appointed & -equipped home. Outdoor sitting areas with lovely tranquil feel, all very private. Large kitchen, useful utility & study & cosy lounge. Beautiful bedrooms with country views and comfortable beds. Great part of the Lakes: we walked thru woods to lake to swim, ate at the quaint Pheasant Inn, hired paddleboards on Derwentwater & completed several of the walks from the cottage detailed by the owners. Perfect!

Simply the best place to stay in the Lake District- especially if you have a family with teenagers as they love the games room!

First time we have stayed at this property. Fantastic property, fantastic location. Thank you for the walk suggestions - we did Sale Fell and then Ling Fell, Sale Fell & Lothwaite - great. The 'kids' did some great rock climbing and swims in the lake + paddle boarding. Also walked Helvellyn + Striding Edge, Catbells and other walks from Keswick. You provided all the facilities we could want & we had a great BBQ too. The games room was superb - thank you for a great holiday - we will be back.

We had a family holiday together at this cottage and had a very enjoyable time. It has a barn which is a games room, which was great for all of us to have fun together, playing pool, table tennis, and table football. The cottage itself was very well appointed and had everything you need. Very clean. The gardens/views are beautiful with plenty of seating. You definitely need transport to get anywhere from this location, but I think this is the case in the Lake District. 9/10.

We liked the cottage so much we returned for a second stay five weeks after our first visit! Having stayed at many cottages in the lake district over the years we found this to be way up there if not the best!! Everything was nigh on perfect-well perfection is so hard to achieve!!!

We have had a lovely four days in the Lakes. The house is very well equipped and extremely comfortable. Our teenagers have enjoyed the fantastic games room and we were impressed and delighted with the helpful guides to local walks. We had a wonderful brunch in the carriages of Bassenthwaite Lake station restaurant/cafe - really superb food and unique atmosphere. We hope to come back and stay in the future.

We have had a wonderful weekend in this house with great facilities. Walked up Sale and Ling fells with the helpful guide provided. Made use of tumble dryer after a day spent kayaking on Windemere in the rain yesterday! Thank you for a wonderful birthday weekend.

Thank you, this cottage was great, brilliant games room which the family enjoyed, the facilities were great and very comfortable. We will definitely stay here again when visiting family.

Thank you. We have all had a lovely week in this fabulous house.Enjoyed the garden, games room, and walking from the door on to the fells. We hope to return

Great stay, good central location to visit the seaside and the Lakes. The cottage had everything we needed. Games room was lots of fun. Great TV though we didnt really watch it. Comfy beds and hot showers, what more could you want. Would definitely recommend.

Wonderful location, very well furnished house with large rooms. We loved the spacious & well appointed kitchen. The games room was a blessing due to the rain for a couple of days, we enjoyed playing snooker, table tennis and table football. On the dry day we grilled our food on the kettle bbq. We loved the house and should have stayed longer. We will share this with our family and friends. We look forward to returning when we can. Many thanks!!

We had a lovely time at your wonderful cottage. The cottage is very well placed for visiting the north and west lakes and being semi-rural made for a very relaxing holiday. The games room was a bonus and brought out our competitive spirit. We would certainly recommend staying here.

Lovely property with excellent parking and games barn. I would highly recommend.

A lovely cottage in a beautiful position. There are many walks from the cottage that the owners have printed with coloured pictures to help with directions. The cottage is so well equipped with lovely china and glassware. Beds are comfortable. The games room is fantastic. With regards the area, the cottage is close to Cockermouth and its Sainsburys, Whinlatter Forest and Keswick. Book the pheasant Inn and places in cockermouth if you want to eat out.

Riggs Cottage was fantastic. Really comfortable and probably the best equipped cottage we have stayed at. Its a drive to most places but does have a lovely pub within walking distance.

Our 2 families had a great week here! The cottage was well equipped to give everyone space and all home comforts. It was so nice to be somewhere where we didn't have to drive every day, good local information on walks and the Pheasant Inn and Lakes Distillery both provided us with walkable places to visit.

Our 5th visit and it won't be our last! love this cottage so much will hopefully be back next year

Lovely, warm comfortable cottage. The heating never goes off so it's a great environment to dry wet walking clothes and boots. Luxurious main bathroom and the bothy is good to hide annoying relatives/teenagers that get cross when you beat them at pool and ping pong in the games barn. The steep drive down from the road is a bit nerve racking at the first attempt but you quickly get comfortable with it. No amenities within walking distance other than a pub and cafe but that was fine with us. All in all a fantastic place in which to isolate yourself in a beautiful autumn landscape.
12/11/21 - Cambridge

Excellent family cottage with a brilliant games room, very well equipped.

A secluded haven offering modern facilities within a stunning period cottage. Riggs is a deceptively spacious home for whomever stays due to its layout providing multiple spaces to cook, sit, play, sleep, etc. The information packs provided inside the cottage cover every foreseeable question about the local area, attractions, activities, and the functioning of the cottage itself. A recent refurb (we also stayed here in 2018) updated the bathroom, kitchen, and heating making it even more comfortable. A perfect getaway for a large family or group of friends and brilliantly located for the less busy northern Lake District. Don't forget to check out the recently opened Bassenthwaite Lake Station café where you can see the replica steam locomotive of the Orient Express!
08/10/21 - Brooklyn NY

Great base for exploring the Northern lakes, very near to Bassenthwaite and Derwentwater. One tip; take an extension lead if using the 3rd bedroom due to limited sockets. Games room is a great bonus and a boon for home based activities on a rainy day. TV okay, but a bigger one might be prudent these days. Kitchen modern and well equipped and a great main bathroom. A great time and fantastic value for money!
01/10/21 - Coventry

Just had a great week at Riggs Cottage. Well kept, clean and stocked with all the utensils etc that you could hope for. Loved the games room and my elder son enjoyed studying in the small office. Excellent convenient maps and information at hand. We completed most of the walks. Great bottle of welcome wine. The addition of a Chimnea would be welcome outside for the colder times, just an idea. Great quality joinery on all the new doors!
15/09/21 - Sunderland

All the rooms were of a generous size and nicely furnished. With young children the kitchen was the place to eat with it's easy to clean slate floor. Couple of nice easy hills from the door and only 25 min drive to Borrowdale. The Pheasant was closed for renovations and so there was no walkable pub when we stayed. The games barn was a total hit with all three generations.
13/08/21 - Nottinghamshire

Great place to stay
06/08/21 - West Sussex

Lovely cottage in a quiet corner of the Lakes. We enjoyed the quirky layout and multi level garden. Very well equipped kitchen and the games room was great too.
30/07/21 - Suffolk

Fantastic cottage in a lovely setting. We had amazing weather and enjoyed the garden and barbeque. The four bedrooms (including the bothy) were all of a good size and the kitchen was well equipped. The games room was lovely and cool as an escape from the heat, but would also have been useful if the weather had been more inclement. The cottage was in an area we didn't know well, and it was good to have a couple of new Wainwright's to climb - the walk up Sale Fell and Ling Fell was a delight. The information about the local walks was excellent - we wouldn't have found them so easily starting from scratch. The local nature reserve was unexpected, as was the train! If that is turned into a cafe as proposed that would be great as a walk from the cottage. Bassenthwaite Lake was within walking distance as well, and the Lakes Distillery. We also walked to Dodd Wood and Mirehouse (a lovely spot for children) from the cottage but have to admit to getting the bus back to Embleton. The Pheasant still closed and was being worked on when we were there, once that is open again it will be a local option for eating out. I hadn't realised when booking how steep the driveway down to the cottage was, you felt as though you had achieved something when you had walked up to the road! There is a helpful seat half way up, a lovely spot to watch for the osprey and other birds/wildlife. We had a close but brief view of a sparrowhawk from near there. There was plenty of parking and the gardens were lovely to relax in after a day out. We all thoroughly enjoyed out holiday and would definitely recommend Riggs Cottage.
23/07/21 - Chester

Lovely cottage-beautiful countryside all around and very private. Cottage great, cosy lounge and good bedrooms. Pretty Bothy and cottage country garden with plenty of outdoor space. Fabulous kitchen, large,airy and clean and very impressed with all the equipment. Had some great games of snooker and table tennis in games barn - overall had a great week and would recommend.
18/06/21 - Penistone

Lovely cottage, great for families.

Perfect. Well equipped cottage with quality fixtures and fittings. Great walks on the door step and only a few miles from amenities.
26/04/21 - Eppleby

Fabulous cottage, warm, cosy and really well equipped. Lovely kitchen to cook in, beds all really comfortable. Superb folder of all of the walks from the house someone has put a lot of effort to help you enjoy the stunning walks. We will book again cannot recommend highly enough.
23/10/20 - Frome

Lovely homely cottage in a perfect quiet location. Well off the beaten track yet public footpath walks from the front gate. Well located between Keswick and Cockermouth with plenty of choice for shopping. Bassenthwaite Lake just a short stroll down the road.
02/10/20 - Merseyside

Riggs Cottage is in a beautiful location with many walks straight from the door. Great house for a large family but not so suitable for young children because of the many steps. The games barn is a bonus. We enjoyed several meals outside in the garden.
21/08/20 - Oxfordshire

Wonderfully peaceful place. Cottage spacious and comfortable. Great walks from the door. Games room fun for wet days. Would love to return again in the future.
31/07/20 - Cambridge

Riggs Cottage was a lovely peaceful haven, a perfect place to spend time with family. The garden and patio were lovely and the games barn added a fun element
20/07/20 - Cheshire

Beautiful cottage, stunning location. Weather was kind, some amazing walking. A great kick start to the New Year. We will be back - Thank you.
02/01/20 - Suffolk

Thank you so much for a truly great stay. We spent a lovely Christmas holiday. Lovely walks around, very beautiful cottage. Great to have board games and lets not forget the games barn.
20/12/19 - Hexham, Reading & Barcelona

Lovely cosy cottage. We were a party of 7 + baby and had plenty of space. Kitchen very well equipped. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
21/09/19 - East Kilbride & Germany

We truly enjoyed the cottage. What a cozy place, clean & oh so comfy beds. We loved playing in the games room with my 70 year old dad! We had fun in the garden and all in all had a wonderful time
30/08/19 - Netherlands & Switzerland

Thank you for a wonderful week! Amazing house.
23/08/19 - Billericay, Chelmsford & St Albans

Thank you for making this holiday so amazing. We've loved the cosiness of the cottage and have endlessly played in the fab games room! We also loved walking up Sale Fell in the early morning and recommend it as it is just around the corner so you can walk from the house. Thank you for making this stay so enjoyable and we would happily come back here. On rainy days we never had nothing to do and we spent hours in the games room. Thanks, we loved it!
16/08/19 - York, Leeds & Bath

Thank you so much for a lovely stay
In your beautiful Riggs Cottage hideaway
In Whinlatter woods we found the Gruffalo
And in the wildlife park we saw goats, birds & buffalo
We played lots of games and had lots of fun
And lots of laughing through the rain, wind & sun
16/06/19 - Ireland

We had another fantastic May half term at Riggs Cottage. The cottage itself was comfortable for us all and we made good use of the games barn. We particularly appreciated the cosiness after a night of wild camping. Thank you for a great week.
24/05/19 - Northamptonshire

Lovely holiday, beautiful weather, amazing surroundings, comfortable and thoughtfully equipped cottage. The children particularly loved the garden, playing all kinds of games and making up adventures. Thank you very much. Would definitely come back!
19/04/19 - Northamptonshire

FIrst thing I noticed were the thousands of daffodils in the garden and then when going round it I found plants for all seasons. Grandparents loved the Bothy, beautifully fitted out. Games room was terrific for the children. House is beatifully equiped but still retains the age of it. Love to come back sometime, so quiet and beautiful scenery around the cottage.
12/04/19 - Sussex

We have had a fantastic week here at Riggs! There has been much laughter and relaxation, many a night sat by the beautiful roaring fire. The kids (+us) have loved the games room and exploring the garden. The cottage is stunning, everything we could possibly need. There's been a few wet + windy walks up the fell and to the Pheasant, all very much worth it. We'd love to come back. Thank you.
22/03/19 - Manchester & Glasgow

Lovely cottage, excellent facilities, everything working and as described it was a very easy weekend for 8 people.
14/01/19 - Greater Manchester

Fantastic relaxing break in this gorgeous very well equipped cottage....fabulous. Ideal for our party of six adults. The games barn should come with a warning as you could easily lose track of time...brilliant. Would not hesitate in returning.
07/01/19 - Workington, Seaton

Lovely cottage, lots of wonderful personal touches (especially the maps of Sale & Ling Fell, much appreciated). Had a wonderful new year break. Thank you.
03/01/19 - Yorkshire, Hampshire & Tower Hamlets

Fabulous stay at Riggs Cottage for a Christmas break. Loads of space for us all to chill! The kids loved the playroom. Such a warm and cosy feel especially with the open fire. Plenty of info on local walks to break up the celebrations. A great time had by all, many thanks
27/12/18 - Blyth, Whitley Bay

What a beautiful cottage. Thank you for allowing us to celebrate Christmas early! Thank you for the decorations. Have a wonderful Christmas and a fabulous 2019.

What a lovely way to be surprised on my birthday by my husband arranging such a special week. A beautiful location for a fabulous cottage that fitted my nearest and dearest. Loved the games room and cosy nights round the big fire. Precious memories, thank you for opening up this home.
10/11/18 - Blackpool

Great walking country with wonderful landscapes. Riggs cottage has been a great base. Comfortable, cozy and warm. I got some great photo's which I'm very pleased with. What fantastic scenery and wildlife. Don't miss out the Osprey's and red squirrels at Dodds Wood.

Had a great week, love the cottage. Would definitely stay again. Beds very comfortable. Great to have washing machine, tumble drier and all the other equipment. Thanks you very much.
03/08/18 - Inverkeithing

Lovely, well equipped cottage with lots of space for a large family. Bothy provides a superb quiet space with beautiful views. Games room is excellent - as is the kitchen. Garden has plenty of space and lovely views too. There is a local walk - but car essential for all journeys.
20/07/18 - Hull

Comfortable, spacious, homely; Games room a fabulous addition. Enjoyed our stay and will hopefully be back another year
The scenery around here looks very nice. I particularly appreciated the stunning truncated spurs and the glacial till. I am a keen geographer and this makes a change from counting oil barrels! Thank you for an amazing stay.
13/07/18 - Brunei

Had amazing heatwave all week! Several of us climbed several mountains inc Grasmoor, Wandop, Maiden Moor, High Spy, Dale Head & Hindscarth. Other lovely walks along Loweswater balcony path, Buttermere Lake, Sale Fell and boat trip from Keswick. We enjoyed the garden and BBQ'd most nights. A lovely base for a stay in the Lakes.
29/06/18 - Northants, Leeds, Sheffield

A wonderful stay at Riggs Cottage with our family - the peaceful situation and size and layout of the cottage, including the excellent games room make for an excellent family holiday. It was great to have access to the fells on your doorstep and walk from the cottage without having to drive.
08/06/18 - Brampton

A great place which met the needs of all family members, lovely garden for grand-daughters to play in. Plenty of space for individual quiet time away from it all, much valued by sons and daughters-in-law who have busy lives. We have all taken fond memories away with us of Riggs cottage.
01/06/18 - Bristol

Very comfortable cottage with plenty of space for everyone. We did some great walks (Blencathra, Great Gable) and cycling, and made good use of the games room. Lovely location in a beautiful part of the world. A brilliant week all round!
07/04/18 - Milton Keynes, Swansea, Stockholm, London

Riggs Cottage is a cosy and charming house in a great location. Plenty of space inside + large games room. Great.
12/03/18 - Rayleigh

We had a great Christmas here at the cottage. It has everything you need. We went on the Sale Fell walk which you had left directions for, they were easy to follow. Nice neighbours, we forgot to bring some milk and they kindly gave us some. The games room was well used, we had a many tournaments.
28/12/17 - West Yorkshire

Third time we have stayed there and love it every time highly recommend to all.
03/12/17 - Brentwood

Fantastic place, we will definitely stay here again!

18/08/17 - Redcar & Holland

An enjoyable visit with 3 grandson's to the Lakes. Cottage really comfortable and well equipped. Gardens lovely, a wonderful setting. Games room fantastic especially on rainy days. Thanks so much for the best of holidays.
29/07/17 - Huyton

What a wonderful place to be a base for us to visit with family & friends in "our own space". We were spoiled by the weather the first 5 days, where we got to enjoy the whole of British Summertime and the longest of days. Wonderful food at the local Lakes Distillery and sad to leave.
24/06/17 - Brockville, Canada

This is the third time we have been to Riggs Cottage over 7/8 years. It has not disappointed us in any way - beautiful location; lovely rooms & comfortable sofas and beds. We were proud to share our week with all of our family, including our Grandchildren - so not much rest was had! Only complaint - the weather (but still lots to do out and about and the barns games-room was well used). Only BBQ'd one night. Lovely wildlife. Thanks again.
10/06/17 - North Wales

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.
13/05/17 - Reading

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.
22/04/17 - Walsall, Derby, Gateshead, Oxford

Excellent place to stay. Lovely and quiet, very well equipped and close to a lot of places to visit etc. I would highly recommend Riggs cottage.
08/04/17 - UK

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
18/02/17 - Leicestershire

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.
27/12/16 - Bratislava

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.
08/12/16 - Exeter

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 .
26/11/16 - South Wales

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.
03/09/16 - Whitley Bay

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.
27/08/16 - Derby

An excellent property set in beautiful surroundings.

Brilliant family holiday in a great cottage, beautiful walks in the lovely lakes. Great place to come and relax and spend some time together - especially over a few games of ping-pong! Kitchen and cottage very well equipped for big family meals - thank you.
02/04/16 - London

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.
26/03/16 - Troon & Sonning

Great week, weather great for the time of year. A thoroughly comfortable and welcoming cottage. Games room a real bonus on cold winter evenings. Wonderful scenery and walking area. We would recommend your cottage to our friends and family.

What a fabulous cottage, great location, very well equipped and very warm!
21/10/15 - Workington, London, Yorkshire & Lincolnshire

Homely cottage, comfortable and excellent facilities. The area is lovely, garden is beautiful, would love to stay in the summertime.
12/10/15 - Liverpool

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.
05/09/15 - Whitley Bay

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.
15/8/15 - Dorset, London & Cardiff

We have a brilliant week here at Riggs. The cottage is perfect - very homely & it caters for everything The games barn is definitely a bonus with both the adults and the kids. It is in a great location & we ran out of time to do all we wanted! We hope to return again next year
18/07/15 - Tamworth & Lichfield

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.
04/07/15 - Gloucester & Warrington

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.
27/06/15 - North Wales, Derbyshire, Sheffield

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.
29/05/15 - Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire

Thank you for a wonderful time in your beautiful, comfortable cottage. Loved the games room and pretty garden. The children had lots of fun. We will definitely come here again. PS the Bothy was superb , very comfortable
18/04/15 - Widley, Waterlooville & Lovedean, Hants

Very well equipped Cottage - lacked for nothing in the kitchen. Found Riggs Cottage beautiful and clean and comfortable. A lovely time was had by all. We are planning a return trip. Thank you.
28/02/15 - Gateshead, Tyne & Wear

We came, we saw and we loved it! Beautiful place and location which helped to make it an eventful, relaxing and fun filled weekend - games room was a bonus, as was the comfort and facilities. Thank you!

A lovely place. Beautiful cottage, great facilities, fabulous landscape. Couldn't ask for more. Many thanks!
27/12/14 - London, Canterbury, Colchester

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.
18/10/14- Glasgow

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.
13/09/14 - London

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.
08/08/14 - Southend

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.
12/07/14 - Belgium

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.
26/06/14 - Ipswich

A fantastic week in a beautiful well equipped cottage. Sale Fell, Catbells and Haystacks have been conquered.
31/05/14 - Bradford on Avon

What a lovely cottage & setting. Felt really at home. Well equipped kitchen. Wine and mint cake much appreciated. Games room is a real bonus, some competitive games were played in there! Lovely scenery and good walks. Can't wait to come back. Thank you.
19/04/14 - Cheshunt

Yet again a wonderful family time at Riggs - our 5th visit! Amazingly we had a dry stay this week - no rain at all, have had lovely walks followed by warming fires & games. We hope all who follow us have as wonderful as time as we had.
23/02/14 - Teeside
