    It had everything we needed (except reliable Wi-Fi which you know about..) It was in a great location with lots of space. The water pressure was amazing! This might seem odd but the down duvets and pillows can be difficult for those with allergies. (Although they were lovely, my husband had to sleep in another room with a blanket. In the upstairs main bedroom, one of the internal bathroom door knobs kept falling off.) All in all a wonderful place to stay and would highly recommend. I know you mention new carpets and paint which will make it even more lovely. Happy to publish but suggest remove the comments in brackets as they are not important and fixed or easily fixed…

The property

Wordsworth House is located in the heart of Keswick, a bustling town in the beautiful Lake District National Park.

This attractive stone-fronted cottage in Cumbira is perfect for a family holiday thanks to its off-road parking, comforting wood-burning stove, private patio, and four bedrooms, it also allows two dogs. While the designated chef in your group whips up a delicious meal in the fully-equipped kitchen, you can settle down in the pleasant sitting room with a Smart TV playing in the background and the woodburning stove providing a toasty glow; then dine together as a family at the spacious dining table.

Relax in the private patio with a glass of wine before retiring to one of the four bedrooms for a good night's sleep; there are two double bedrooms, each with its own en-suite shower room and TV, and two twin rooms, one of which also has a TV, all of which are serviced by a modern family bathroom.

If you don't feel like cooking, Wordsworth House is located in the heart of Keswick, just a short distance from restaurants, shops, and a local pub the Dog & Gun.

The Keswick Museum, Castlerigg Stone Circle, and Derwent Pencil Museum are just a few of the attractions that visitors to the Lake District National Park can enjoy.

Keen hikers can also enjoy the Keswick to Threlkeld Railway Trail and the other trails in the park; while thrill seekers can look forward to a variety of watersports at nearby Bassenthwaite, Windermere, and Derwentwater Lakes, or they can challenge themselves with hikes up peaks like Skiddaw and Blencathra.

Nearby towns like Cockermouth, Bowness-on-Windermere, and Kendal are also worth a visit.

Wordsworth is conveniently situated for guests wanting to explore the wonders of the Lake District National Park.
