Providing ample space for a larger family or group of friends, this characterful Victorian house provides cosy and friendly holiday accommodation in the heart of Keswick for up to eight guests.

This cottage is a characterful gem of a house sleeping up to eight people in the heart of Keswick. While being in a popular residential area within a stone's throw of all the town's amenities it nonetheless boasts four spacious bedrooms with flexible accommodation a charming and spacious garden, designated parking and stunning views of the fells that surround the town. A gorgeous slate Victorian end of terrace house with generously proportioned rooms and plenty of socialising space it really is an ideal place for a large family or group of friends to make the most of this glorious area. The owners have used light airy decor, local photography and colourful wall art making the most of some wonderful traditional features to create a warm and welcoming space.

Keswick's position, nestled on the shore of picturesque Derwentwater, is absolutely glorious. The choice of fell walks from the door is marvellous with everything from mighty Skiddaw, England's fourth highest mountain, to lower level fells such as Walla Crag and Latrigg all walkable from the door. Alternatively, guests can take the gentle potter down to the lake shore and perhaps catch one of Keswick's lovely launches which wind their way around the lake. Why not walk along the lake into the jaws of beautiful Borrowdale, have a delicious lunch at one of the hotels or cafes then catch the launch back to Keswick? How very civilised. At this cottage you are perfectly placed to enjoy the town's cultural delights with a theatre, cinema and two museums all within easy walking distance.

Keswick is also well known as the adventure capital of the Lake District. Every possible outdoor activity is catered for here from rock climbing to ghyll scrambling, via ferrata to paddle boarding. There's a wealth of outdoor companies to guide your adventures, as well as two marinas and indoor climbing walls. The cycling in the area is second to none with a fantastic choice of off-road adventures to be had for the mountain bikers among you and some of the most iconic road cycling in the country. Families are well catered for with a leisure pool with huge slide, an excellent playground and lots of activities nearby such as The Lake District Wild Animal Park and Whinlatter Forest Park. In all for a group of friends or a family gathering then you could scarcely be better placed than at this retreat.

Lovely cottage right in the centre of Keswick. The cottage was lovely and warm despite of the very cold weather. Perhaps a role of kitchen roll could be provided in the kitchen but that is only a small thing. Parking very handy and good size. Cleanliness second to none thank you.

This is a fantastic property in a superb location. The house itself is well equipped, with everything you need for self catering. The 4 bedrooms are all well furnished with comfortable beds. There is one shower/ WC room and one complete bathroom, adjacent to each other on the first floor, with 2 further bedrooms on this floor. The further 2 bedroomRead mores are on the second floor with some excellent views across to Catbells. Whilst it states " parking for 2 cars", we managed to park 3 cars- great! Hide

A lovely house in a very convenient location. Warm, comfortable and homely. The kitchen /dining area is spacious and well equipped. No shortage of hot water with both showers going. Little details like good towel rails, drying rails for the radiators and a boot storage area indicate the thought that the owners have put into the property. The gardenRead more looked lovely and cared for, unfortunately the weather did not allow us to sit out! We had a lovely stay and look forward to returning. Hide
