General Description

Cartref is a three bedroom town house sleeping up to seven people just two-minutes walk from the bustling centre of Keswick and situated on a popular residential street within walking distance of local amenities and attractions. The cottage has been recently refurbished to a high standard. The cottage has wifi and would suit a family with young teens perfectly.

Cartref has two entrances; one via the front of the cottage at Helvellyn Street and a side entrance on Myers Street, which leads into the kitchen. After a day on the fells, guests can use the back door which leads to a small drying area at the end of the kitchen. In keeping with the rest of the cottage, the kitchen has been tastefully refurbished in a modern town house style, with white metropolitan tiles setting off the high gloss kitchen units. A good use of space is made in the kitchen, which comprises of an electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, freestanding fridge-freezer and an oak dining table that seats up to six people. High ceilings make the kitchen feel light and airy and it still retains the privacy of its guests despite the bustling street life on its doorstep.

Like the kitchen, the living room has a clean, modern feel to it, with a two-seater and three-seater sofas and armchair, all in black leather, seating up to six people. A large flatscreen TV (with BluRay player and HDMI input for games consoles) sits above the gas faux woodburning stove and the tall Victorian sash windows flood the room with natural daylight.

The stairway leading up to the first and second floors is quirky. Whilst safe, the winding staircase has a handrail but is narrow and small children would need to be closely supervised on the stairs.

There are two WCs located on the first floor. The main bathroom has a WC, luxury walk-in shower (with drench and handheld shower heads) and a heated towel rail. The second WC is contained in a utility area with a washing machine and washbasin.

There is one bedroom on the first floor which boasts a super-king bed, its large windows overlook Helvellyn Street below and its row of Victorian slate-clad houses. Two more bedrooms are located on the second floor. The bedroom to the rear of the cottage has zip and link beds which are made up as into twin beds as standard (please let us know if you would like these to be super-king). The final bedroom features a double bed. This room enjoys views over the rooftops and Skiddaw beyond. Each bedroom contains a full-length wardrobe, chest-of-drawers, mirror and bedside cabinets.
