  • “Great central location for Keswick and the Lakes.”

    House was well presented and had everything other than bin and laundry bags. The views from this property are stunning and look out over the 'Barrow' and Cat Bells at the rear of the property. Easy walking distance to town centre and the Co-Op and Booths are both within walking distance with a local Spar just 100 yards away for essentials.

It is a shame the property no longer accepts pets, possibly due to the damage caused to the leather sofas in the past!
