    “The cottage was very comfortable and the location is perfect.”

    Close enough to the major towns, but far enough away for peace and quiet. The kitchen was very well equipped, although only three rings worked on the cooker. The cottage has a septic tank, and there was a notice to say only toilet tissue can be flushed away. However, there was no provision for sanitary products. Towels were included, but would suggest a second set for when the others are being washed and dried. A hoover would be a welcomed addition as I was unable to clear up as much as I would have liked during our stay and before we left, especially with our dogs in the property. Overall we had a fantastic stay, and plan to return in the future.

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.
