  • “Beautiful property.”

    Located within easy walking access to Keswick. ...

    Located within easy walking access to Keswick. Very spacious, clean and well equipped. Views amazing and so restorative! Would not hesitate to recommend. Only 2 minor things to improve would be: a dishwasher would have been great (especially in view of Covid situation) and also ensuring that the garden was fully enclosed and a front gate present due to a very busy main road (especially important in view of the property being pet friendly on booking). It is a shame as it now appears non-pet friendly, we may not be able to return.
