A warm welcome for couples, families and four furry friends awaits in this home from home. Enjoy local pubs, coffee shops and restaurants in Keswick, as well as exploring the beautiful countryside.

This three-bedroom cottage is situated in the heart of the market town of Keswick. Its nickname comes from its proximity to the Keswick Brewing Company, which backs onto the cottage. The brewery offers tours in which you can discover how beer is made using sheep wool and what makes the beer green! No tour would be complete without sampling the beer in the bar and you can stock the fridge from the brewery shop.

The cottage itself sleeps four people across two double bedrooms on the first floor, plus there is an attic hideaway for up to four older children. The perfect children's getaway, the loft has a large TV available to hook up a gaming system, increasing the chance that parents can be left in peace downstairs! Keswick has been voted as the most dog-friendly town in Britain and well-behaved dogs are always welcome at the cottage.

Just 2 minutes' walk into the centre of town, the cottage is a stone's throw from the River Greta. Across the river is Fitz Park (with a fantastic children's playground and tennis courts), Keswick Museum (the social enterprise cafe there is a highlight) and Keswick Spa children's swimming pool. Keswick makes a great base to explore the Lake District UNESCO World Heritage Site and there really is something to satisfy all budgets and all tastes.

Entry to the cottage is through a set of French doors, which flood the ground floor rooms with natural light. The living room features a five-seater leather corner settee, leather arm chair, gas fire, Hi-Fi and a TV with video and DVD player. The dining room adjoins the living room and the table seats up to seven guests. The well-stocked kitchen includes gas oven and four-ring hob, dishwasher, microwave, freestanding fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer.

The first floor features two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a WC. One bedroom has a super-king-size bed that can be split into two singles (please let us know if you'd like us to make the beds up as singles), a built-in wardrobe, bureau, dresser and a small TV and stereo (bring your auxiliary cable if you want to play music from your phone). The second bedroom has a double bed, double aspect windows, a built-in wardrobe and chest of drawers. The two bathrooms each contain a walk-in drencher shower, basin, heated towel rail and WC.

The attic room (available on request and at an additional charge) is accessed via a permanent ladder from the first floor and, while it is possible for adults to sleep there, the room has been designed with older children in mind. There are two single futon beds and a further part of the attic space can accommodate a further two people in single beds. A huge TV is available, but only works with a gaming system, so be sure to bring the Playstation or XBox if you want your children to make use of the TV. The attic room is a perfect hideaway for children, but the ladder (which is steep but does have safe handrails) and the fully-opening windows do mean that the room may not be suitable for young children.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 2 bedrooms – 1 super-king-size (can be made into twin beds on request), 1 double.
  • 2 additional attic rooms (not suitable for young children) one with two futon beds and another with two put up single beds. If you require the beds to be made up in either of the attic rooms an additional charge applys - please contact us to book

The cottage was very well equipped . The bed was very comfortable and the showers are excellent. The location is excellent tucked away on the edge of the town centre. Wi-fi a huge plus as network coverage poor in Keswick in general. Enjoyed our stay v much.

Great cottage fantastic location, very close to town and ideal for the park. Felt at home as soon as we walked through the door. We didnt struggle with the parking either and we have a 7 seater Ford Galaxy there would still have been room for another car in the space. Will look at staying again.

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.

It could take you five lifetimes to visit each of the places mentioned here; a good way to see more of the Lake District National Park is stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages. Our range of holiday properties in the Lake District and Cumbria gives you the perfect place to stay in the north west countryside or on the coast. Our self-catering cottages in the Lake District offer lovely holiday accommodation to suit all your needs, from cottages to rent for a romantic getaway to larger properties for the whole family – we even have dog-friendly holiday homes across the Lake District too.
