    “Perfect place for a lakes holiday with a toddler.”

    Great location for walking into/around Keswick and for short day trips out. Fairfell was very clean, comfortable and quiet (which was a surprise being so close to Keswick!)

    Great location for walking into/around Keswick and for short day trips out. Fairfell was very clean, comfortable and quiet (which was a surprise being so close to Keswick!) There was a lot provided with the property, but it would have been helpful to have a few more kitchen essentials, e.g salt and pepper, oil and kitchen roll.

    Thank you for your positive and helpful feedback on Fairfell. Really pleased you and your toddler enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back when you are next in the Lakes. Property Owner

The popular town of Keswick is the holiday centre of the North of the Lake District and has plenty to offer the visitor at any time of year. The town boasts numerous shops and restaurants to suit all tastes, as well as offering miniature golf, excellent parks, the famous Theatre by the Lake, a charming cinema, the Pencil Museum, a climbing wall, fishing and great mountain biking opportunities, whilst the beautiful lake of Derwentwater at the head of the stunning Borrowdale Valley is only a few minutes walk from the town centre. Nearby, between Braithwaite and Buttermere is the beautiful Newlands Valley, while picturesque Bassenthwaite Lake is well worth a visit.
