    • “Fantastic surprise”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “I have just had a wonderful surprise weekend away for my Birthday, the house is in a great location just a 2 minute walk from all the amenities of Keswick. The rooms are spacious and managed to fit 8 of us in comfortably. The property was immaculately cleaned and had all the home comfort you would expect. Parking was easy at the side of the house and overall a great place for a lovely break. cant wait to return.”

    • “Home away from Home!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Wordsworth house is superb! I can't understate this enough. The house is in a brilliant location - walking distance to town, a swimming pool, local Booths, a number of outdoor activities and lovely restaurants. The house in itself is prefect from a family trip - all the rooms are spacious, clean, and comfy!!! There are enough to facilities in the house to allow for a party of 8+ to get ready in the morning with no major fuss. We also visited Wordsworth House with a large dog who really enjoyed himself watching the streets through the windows and the glass doors in the extension. The only downside of our trip was that the beds aren't particularly comfortable - but then again that's a personal preference and it wasn't a huge issue. We would definitely rebook the house again if holidaying in the Lakes with a large group!!”

    • “Spacious cottage; quiet, yet close to all that Keswick has to of”

    • “We have visited Keswick many times; Wordsworth House was a last minute break and a bargain because our half term dates were different to England's. The house was beautifully spacious and the views from the front bedrooms breathtaking. The kitchen was superb and there was plenty of room for the four of us. It was in a quiet back street but very close to Fitz Park and the road into Keswick. We love being able to walk to the shops and Derwent Water. The house was warm and the facilities excellent. It was very useful having the washer and tumble drier after a day in the hills. We enjoyed days walking, a trip to Clip n Climb in Maryport which is great if it's a rainy day and got the bus to Carlisle. The décor was neutral and the furnishings very tasteful. The beds were comfortable and there were TVs everywhere!! The only negative comment we could make is that the sofas in the lounge looked lovely but weren't very comfortable. We had really good service from the rental company and would love to return.”

    • “I've said we went in April but can't quite recall what spring month we visited. The weather however was perfect and we came away from Keswick with sun tans. The house is everything as described. The lounge had two very comfy large sofas, exactly what you want after a day on the fells. Perfect family bathroom, spacious doubles and twins. The doubles had small but perfectly formed en-suite. I love to cook, so the combination of a fantastic kitchen, well equipped with Booths supermarket in the town centre meant we all ate very well. The kitchen has two fridges which we found useful, one for food and one for drink! Kitchen also came complete with huge flat screen, Smart Tv as in the living room. We took our dog and she just loved looking out the double glass doors in the back entrance hall. The houses is in an ideal location. Perfect for Latrigg, Walla Crag and further afield right out the door. A short walk on the flat and you're in Keswick town centre. The house has a small boot/coat room that contains the washing machine and tumble drier. If I could make one suggestion to improve the experience for me it would be to make the small outside terrace area secure and dog proof to enable the dog to go outside without a lead, this really is just nitpicking on my behalf though.”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Had lovely family holiday here-comfortable, warm house. Easy ,flat, walk into Keswick centre for older generation. Teenagers will love all the flat screens and modern kitchen. Kitchen table only has 6 chairs though cottage sleeps eight. Settees in lounge need re arranging for sociability. Lack of enclosed space outside is not ideal for dogs as patio is near road.”

    • “Very good double bedrooms. Kitchen good, though dining table strangely on view to passers by. Big sofas lumpy and uncomfortable and unusual (anti-social) long lounge with big TV.”

    • “Wordsworth House - what can I say! Fantastic location, central to all amenities, beautifully furnished and finished off to a high spec. It was exactly what we wanted and all eight of us felt so confortable there. The kitchen was a great entertaining area with so much space along with the fab views of the mountains from every room. Would definately return and recommend this property in the future.”

    Mrs Sweetman, Orpington, October 2018

    • “House only 5 min walk from centre of Keswick and was clean when we arrived. Utilities cupboard and dryer handy for wet boots and jackets. Kitchen well stocked with mugs, plates and pans etc. Would consider going back to this one!”

    Mr Gannon, St. Helens, September 2018

    • “We have stayed at Wordsworth House in September for the last 3 years. The house is lovely and spacious, a good home from home. Ideal location close enough to the town without being too busy.”

    Mrs Doyle, Runcorn, September 2018

    • “Lovely House, clean, comfortable and spacious in a great convenient location for Keswick centre. Recommended”

    Mr Barraclough, Stockport, June 2018

    • “House was fairly dirty, particularly the en-suite bathrooms and very much the showers. For a home that sleeps 8 there is a severe lack of cooking utensils- not enough pans, many sharp knives are broken or not big enough to cut bread. There are also no laundry cleaning products, poor for a house that demands such a high price.”

    Ms Davies, Glasgow, May 2018

    • “Close to the village easy parking warm and a nice homley feeling”
