Just a few metres from the centre of Keswick, this beautiful three-storey slate-built house overlooks the peaks of Skiddaw and Latrigg, and offers fantastic holiday accommodation for up to nine guests.

This property is a great value large terraced house in the heart of Keswick sleeping up to ten people in five comfortable bedrooms. Situated down a quiet street in this much loved Lakeland town Kingsfell offers bags of space for a gathering including its own games room and extra living area, ideal for teens and tweens wanting some space of their own. This slate fronted Victorian house is spread over three floors and overlooks the peaks of Latrigg and mighty Skiddaw, England's fourth highest mountain, from the front bedrooms. The centre of town lies just a few minutes walk away with a vast array of things to do whatever your interests.

Keswick is a jewel in the crown of the Lake District National Park, situated on picturesque Derwentwater and surrounded by stunning fell views to all sides. It's known as the adventure capital of the Lakes and it's easy to see why as you can try your hand at almost any outdoor activity with a wealth of instructors on hand to help you find your wild side. If a gentler time in the great outdoors is more to your taste then there is a huge choice of things to do from easy low level walks and cycle rides to catching the lovely Derwentwater launch and soaking up the stunning scenery from the water.

The town offers plenty in the way of cultural delights too with its own art deco cinema showing mainstream and independent films and the beautifully situated Theatre By The Lake offering a varied programme of drama, comedy and music throughout the year. The house is conveniently close to all the town's amenities. Families will love Keswick's Leisure Pool with its huge slide and wave machine just a 5-minute potter away and the excellent play park and Keswick Museum right next door. Not to mention the great choice of shops and eateries all on your doorstep at Kingsfell.

Stay in this large terraced house in a quiet residential area of Keswick just a stone's throw from the town centre. On arrival at the house there are several steps up to the front door from the pavement where you'll also find a small raised terrace with a bench for taking in the views up to the fell tops or just watching the world go by.

Enter the spacious hallway leading first to the pleasant living room. It has a lovely light feel about it having high ceilings with period details, wooden floors, a large bay window, a gas-effect fire and plenty of seating space for relaxing in the evening. There is a large Smart TV . Further along the hall lies the spacious dining room with large table and a wooden dresser. Beyond this lies the well-equipped kitchen with microwave, dishwasher, double oven with gas hobs and a large fridge/freezer. Of course it has all the crockery and utensils you will need for a gathering. The games room is just beyond the kitchen, it's a great space for kids or teens with a sofa and a pool table, and being just next to the kitchen, you won't have to shout too loudly to get them all to come for dinner!

Upstairs you first reach a stair landing. At the end of this corridor is the second living area with its own TV and DVD player. There's no need to argue over who gets the remote control when the kids have a snug of their own. Along here lies all of the bathroom facilities. There are two separate WCs, a shower room and a separate bathroom with bath (no shower).

Up the curved staircase to the first floor bedrooms where you'll find a twin room looking out to the back of the property and the large king-size room looking out to the front at the view of Skiddaw and Latrigg. Both of these rooms have a wardrobe, chest of drawers and in-room sink.

Kingsfell was a great house to be in as it is so near to the town centre. There were plenty of rooms to choose from. If you have a full house, then one shared shower is not great, even though there is a bathroom as well. That said, we did manage to sort out a rota. The kitchen and dining room are very well appointed and the lounge very comfortable Read morewith plenty of furniture. The pool table was a great hit with our teenagers. Hide

Good house, basic decor but clean and well supplied with kitchen utensils etc. Plenty of space for large groups of people to not get under each others feet. Great location - easy to head out on walks straight from the house and close to shops and cafes so walkers and non-walkers all happy. Fly in the ointment was having to pay to use the pool tableRead more - a bit mean. Hide

Kingsfell is excellent. We have been staying there for around 30 years through various owners (in fact the only gaps were when it looked as if it was going back to a family home....and covid) and are hoping to book again for next year. Great views of the fells from the front of the house and it is in easy walking distance of Keswick.

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. Take a look at our full collection of self-catering cottages and begin to plan your holiday.
