General Description

Enjoying a fantastic position, just a 5 minute walk from the centre of Keswick is Green Gables, an impressive 3 storey Lakeland stone-fronted cottage. Head inside and you’ll find spacious accommodation for up to 6 people.

The bright entrance hall leads you through to the wonderful living-dining room. Bright and airy thanks to its large dual aspect windows, this is a fantastic social space. The living area has a choice of a 3-seater sofa, 2-seater sofa and inviting armchair, all ideally positioned around the living flame gas fire, perfect for cosy evenings in. There’s also a TV with Sky Q (including Sky Sports package) and Netflix in here for entertainment, or simply catch up with a good book. The wooden dining table is the ideal spot for comparing notes on the day’s events over a delicious home cooked meal, or spread out your maps and guide books and plan tomorrow’s.

Continue through to the well equipped kitchen at the back of the cottage. The cooks in the group are sure to love using the electric range-style cooker with its ceramic hobs. There’s also a fridge-freezer, microwave and even a dishwasher so there’ll be no need to fight over who has to do the washing up! A handy utility room houses the washing machine and tumble dryer, should you wish to make use of these during your stay. There’s also a useful WC and washbasin in here too.

Head back out into the hallway and up the stairs to the first floor, where you’ll find 3 of the 4 bedrooms. First up we have the master bedroom, which has a fantastic feature antique wooden king size bed that’s just perfect for indulging in a long lie in – you are on holiday after all! The large window to the front means this spacious room is lovely and light; there’s also a useful chest of drawers for storage. Next up is the bright double room which overlooks the rear yard. A wardrobe, chest of drawers and dressing table complete this bedroom. The final bedroom on this floor is the cosy single room.

Also on the first floor is the family bathroom. With WC, washbasin, bath and separate shower cubicle all tastes are catered for, whether you prefer a long soak in the bath or a refreshing shower.

Onwards and upwards to the second floor and the fourth and final bedroom, a twin. This is another lovely, bright room with views from its dormer window over the rooftops to the fells beyond. The adjoining shower room up here has a WC, washbasin and modern shower cubicle, perfect for reinvigorating tired muscles after a day out on the fells.

Outside the cottage has a delightful enclosed rear yard. With outdoor furniture, it’s a lovely spot for al fresco dining or for that peaceful morning cuppa before everyone else is up. Also out here is a useful storeroom, ideal for storing bikes if you like to get out and about on 2 wheels.

A car parking permit is provided for 1 car to use the car park opposite the cottage (behind the Convenvtion Centre). There is also plenty of on street parking available close to the cottage if you have more than 1 car.
