    The bed was very comfortable. The location is ideal close to the town and good walks. The maps provided were very useful. We had a problem with the flush button on the toilet and would advise that this is sorted out. We also think that the door lock on the bathroom needs fixing. There were 2 nice bedside lamps in the main bedroom but only one socket! This could be sorted with an extension lead. We would suggest a similiar arrangement for the sitting room. There is also a constant drip from underneath the central heating boiler. We enjoyed our time in the property and would definitely come again.

The property

This delightsome, mid-terrace cottage, Holly Cottage, lies in the heart of Keswick.

Just moments away from the Lake District National Park's finest waters and peaks, Holly Cottage is the perfect home-from-home for a small family or group of three.

Upon entering the property, you will be delighted to find a charming sitting room, where you can gather around the TV with Freeview and relish a movie marathan after a day packed with sailing or walking.

Move across the ground floor to find the kitchen/diner, a delightful space hosting wooden fittings and a range of appliances.

When dinner is ready, enjoy it with your loved ones at the dining table with stools, crack open a bottle of bubbly before night falls, freshen up before bed in the nearby cloakroom or continue upstairs to the bathroom for an soak in the bath with shower over.

The single is ideal, with a hand basin and ample storage available for your belongings, whilst you can rest in the lovely double room that is bathed in light, thanks to its large window and also provides you with a vanity and basin.

Everything you need for a self-catered stay is within easy reach, with a supermarket situated directly opposite the cottage, as well as a plethora of eateries dotted throughout the town, including many very highly rated restaurants and eateries.

The town is also served by a variety of attractions, from the Puzzling Place to Derwent Pencil Museum, whilst also being moments away from Derwentwater, where you can cycle or walk around the waters, or sail to your heart's content in.

For more outdoor fun, wander west to find the enchanting Whinlatter Forest Park, or continue north to find the Bassenthwaite Lake National Nature Reserve, where not only the lake itself awaits, but the nearby Mirehouse Gardens, Lake District Wildlife Park and Skiddaw can be found close-by.

For a day out with a difference, visit Cockermouth and tour Wordsworth House and Percy House Gallery, stroll along the winding river of Derwent, or enjoy a golf tournament at the nearby club.

The Park is home to some amazing towns, including Ambleside and Bowness-on-Windermere, where more lakeside activities await.

For a holiday that you'll cherish forever, choose Holly Cottage.

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. From a gentle countryside ramble to a challenging hike up Skiddaw or the famous Catbells, there really is something for everyone. Visit Castlerigg Stone Circle, the Jennings Brewery and Mirehouse, a grand house and gardens on the shores of the Bassenthwaite Lake, or take a fabulous boat trip around Derwentwater. With plenty of attractions for the kids, lovely parks and the nearby Lake District Wildlife Park this is a great Lakeland destination whatever the time of year.
