    “A perfect base from town and the surrounding natural beauty.”

    The house and particularly kitchen, came with everything you needed to enjoy a family holiday. The washer/dryer and off road parking space was essential.

    The house and particularly kitchen, came with everything you needed to enjoy a family holiday. The washer/dryer and off road parking space was essential. The only two things I would change would be we couldn't all sit at the same table. A table for six in a house made for eight. And also there were no baby facilities, high chair and travel cot. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay and would absolutely visit again. Many thanks

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.
