    “Great property, surprisingly spacious and very well equipped.”

    Really useful having the pub next door! Loads of great walks nearby so you don't need to use the car. The walk to Keswick is about a mile and a pleasant stroll.

    Really useful having the pub next door! Loads of great walks nearby so you don't need to use the car. The walk to Keswick is about a mile and a pleasant stroll. Perhaps I might have missed it in the booking info, but the garden is not enclosed, so couldn't leave the dog outside alone. Also the curtains in the twin room do not fully cover the window, thankfully the morning sun did not wake my child too early, but might be an issue for others.
