Ladstock Hall is a stunning luxury Lake District cottage, standing in its own grounds with original features including open fires, leaded windows and oak panelling. A group of friends or 2 or 3 families will appreciate the attention to detail with this luxury property and the close proximity of Keswick with shops, bars, restaurants and attractions ensures there is plenty to do when you tire of soaking up the scenery in the garden.

We are delighted to add Ladstock Hall to our range of luxury properties. This Grade II listed building is a fine example of an Arts and Crafts house with many original features including fireplaces, leaded stone mullioned windows and oak panelling.

Peaceful environment to relax in the sun , catch up with emails at the desk or read one of the interesting books thoughtfully put in the bookcase. For us it helped to make a very special family occasion very memorable. We'd love to come back. Thank you!

  • Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful house! Very well equipped couldn't ask for more. Would highly recommend and hope to come back again. Stunning views and lovely surroundings. A great find! Thank you very much!

    Moratee & Hunter

  • Ladstock Hall is exactly as described and is well thought out for all members of the family. Large and luxurious, it deserves its 5 star rating. Rooms are decorated beautifully. Well equipped. Views are stunning. Plenty of walks for those who are so inclined. Pretty garden with games provided (boules set, croquet). Peaceful. Feels detached even though part of a small development. High standard of cleanliness. Lots of small, clever touches - a recent book collection, range of Dvds, local leaflets, chess set on table near window, etc. Good WiFi connection in most parts of the house. Nice to be there during very good weather in July 2013 but this house would have plenty to offer at any time of the year no matter what the temperature outside. Hoping to return.

    Mr and Mrs Algo

  • What an amazing find! Had a fantastic family holiday and there are great walks.

    Mr and Mrs Du Pleet

  • A really super house for a big family gathering. I never thought as a man I could get excited by curtains, but I did. Sitting in the bedroom looking out to skiddaw sums it up with wonderful walks to Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite.

    Mr and Mrs Hollamby

  • Thank you for a really wonderful holiday in the Lake District - we did love Ladstock Hall! Please could you pass on my thanks to the owners, who left us a very sweet card, chocolates and some bubbly to enjoy while we were there. It was a very special time with the family and the accommodation made it all the more so - a very special find.
