    “A brilliant place to stay!”

    The house had everything you could want/need & more! The only reason I have marked down slightly for the accuracy of listing is that I don't think the photos do it justice - particularly the dinning room, it is actually a lot bigger than the photo would suggest. ...

    The house had everything you could want/need & more! The only reason I have marked down slightly for the accuracy of listing is that I don't think the photos do it justice - particularly the dinning room, it is actually a lot bigger than the photo would suggest. The only issue we had when we were there is we had the back door open on one of the days & lots of flys came into the house which we then struggled to get rid of, purchased fly spray in the end & left it in case anyone else has any issues.

The property

Nestled in the heart of the historic market town of Keswick, in the wonderful Lake District National Park, is this delightful three storey stone cottage.

Inside, the property has been lovingly renovated by the owner, with a lovely light decor and large windows which give the rooms an abundance of natural light.

Look forward to spending your evenings in the sitting room where you can relax and unwind in front of the TV.

Step through into the dining area which provides ample seating to enjoy your meals over a well deserved glass of wine.

The kitchen has been fitted with white modern units and sleek black worktops with a range of contemporary appliances so you can cook up a storm for the whole family!

Retire to one of the four well presented bedrooms spaced across two floors and consisting of two doubles,a twin and a children's bunk room".

Each bedroom has a range of furnishings to store your personal items, and plush beds so you can get a restful sleep for the day ahead.

The family bathroom has a fitted bath and shower over, so you can take a relaxing soak after a tiring day.

Outside, there is a rear patio courtyard with garden furniture, where you can sit out with a refreshing drink and enjoy a good book.

While you're in the area, a must see attraction is the wonderful Dove Cottage and the Wordsworth Museum for an insight into how the famous poet once lived, where he got his inspiration from and the delightful garden he planted with his sister Dorothy.
