                                                              Great Accomodation, Great Location!

                                                              This is a great place to stay if visiting Keswick in the Lake District. Everything about the accomodation is premium and is complete with everything needed if staying in (the garden/patio is great). We visited for the Keswick Mountain Festival and the location was perfect, just a short walk to the town and nearby lakes. We had an amazing time and the owner was available throughout for any queries that we had. Will definitely stay again in the future.

                                                              Very clean and comfortable house

                                                              Very accurate description online, property was as per description. House was clean, well maintained and equipped, with a lovely decoration style - it felt very comfortable, nice colour palette throughout the house. I was impressed with the customer service we received from Chris, the owner: we had initially booked the Studio, but there has been a problem with the boiler and Chris offered us this 5 bedroom house all to ourselves instead (for the same price). We would definitelly recommend this property and we will come back to one of Chris' houses when we will have another holiday in Keswick. There is so much to do in the area: we rested a lot and had shorter walks through the town and by Derwent water, but we also did longer (still, easy) walks around Rydal water and Buttermere Lake and we went up castle crag (the little but challenging hill at the one end of Derwent Water). The week here has been a delight!
