Open All Hours....


Here at Sally’s Cottages we are lucky to be situated on one of Keswick’s busy shopping streets packed full of independent shops, bars and eateries.

Just next door is Open All Hours, which has been run by the Dunn family for 30 years. Many old Keswickians will remember their current premises on St John’s Street as the Co-operative and some of the old fashioned signs are still on display today.

Keswick Brewery beerAs well as being a well stocked mini supermarket, Open All Hours is proud to have been awarded the title of Best UK Beer Retailer for two consecutive years.In contrast to most UK supermarkets, you will find a wide selection of independently brewed ales, obscure foreign beers and most importantly, Cumbrian produced ales. Owner Alan Dunn prides himself on stocking the largest selection of bottled beers produced in Cumbria – all of them!

Some of our favourites here in the office are Thirst Fall from The Keswick Brewery Co., Academy Ale from Tirril Brewery or something pale and golden from the Loweswater Brewery, based at the famous Kirkstile Inn.

Why not stock up on a few local ales to drink back at one of our Lake District cottages or to take home with you to remind you of the wonderful taste of Cumbria and the fabulous time you had stopping in one of our Keswick holiday cottages.
