The location is perfect for Keswick, the views are stunning and the settees are extremely comfortable. The shower is fantastic! The whole flat is very spacious and airy but still feels cosy and there is everything you will need for a great stay. We only had one day of rain, but not a hardship at all with a lovely place to come back to after a drive to Buttermere. The rest of the week was glorious sunshine which was such a bonus and great to be able to get some decent walks in. We'll definitely be returning now that we have found such a gem of a place!

The house had everything needed, including a fully equipped kitchen and was nicely furnished. It was very clean. The garden was lovely to sit in and enjoy the summer evenings. Having a front yard in which to park a car was excellent. It is situated in a quiet location, a pleasant 20 minute walk to the centre of Keswick. Buses pass the front door. Countless walking opportunities are very close. A lovely stay and sad when the time came to leave.
