Kirk Fell 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 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 to make a wonderfully welcoming space.
On arrival at the property guests are greeted by a porch with seat to remove any muddy footwear before heading through to the main hall. This has a traditional Victorian tiled floor with a gorgeous church pew and bags of hanging space for all your party's coats.
Firstly to the main living room. This is a lovely space with some quirky flair thanks to a large offset bay window in which sits the most gorgeous red armchair for watching the world go by or curling up with a good book. There are two deep leather sofas, lovely local photography, a gas effect fire and a TV with Freeview and BluRay player. Onward to the back of the house to the large open plan kitchen diner and second living space. This extra living area is cosy and welcoming with seating arranged around a lovely wood burner. Next to this is a the large dining table around which you can have long post dinner chats planning your North Lakes adventures. The kitchen area is well equipped with a Smeg double electric oven with gas hobs, a microwave, dishwasher and all the crockery and cutlery you'll need for your stay. There's a utility cupboard with a washing machine and dryer along with a lovely light back porch which houses a double garden seat shoe rack and glass double doors leading out to the garden.
The first floor of the house where you first encounter the fell views from the landing windows. There's a family bathroom here with an over-bath mixer shower and next door a further shower room with a mixer shower. The lovely master bedroom looks out to the front of the house and benefits from another one of those beautiful offset bay windows with an armchair for gazing out at the surroundings. There is a heavy wooden king-size bedstead, a wardrobe, chest of drawers, a decorative fireplace and a TV with built-in DVD.
The twin bedroom on this floor has full size zip and link single beds which can be made into a super-king should you require, (please advise on booking) there's also a large wardrobe and chest of drawers.
Moving up to the second floor there is the second of the king-size rooms. This is another lovely large space with huge built-in wardrobes a decorative fireplace and views to Latrigg. The second floor twin room has smaller single beds which can be made up as a king size should your party require (once again please advise on booking). The room has a chest of drawers and hanging rails, a decorative fireplace and a lovely view over the rooftops to mighty Skiddaw.
Moving outside to the back garden guests will find a delightfully peaceful space despite being in the heart of the town. The side of the house has a raised path and rockery while the back has a lawn, mature plants, a gorgeous blossom tree and a charming summer house (containing outdoor furniture for use in the garden). A perfect place for a sunny evening meal enjoying the fell views.
