Good size rooms for 3-4 people and well provided with everything you could want - including a bottle of wine on arrival - ta for that!. It is an easy 20 minute stroll into Keswick which builds a good hunger for eating and drinks in any of the many great pubs in the town centre - Wainwrights was our particular favourite. Would definitely stay here again - Really easy to get around for walking in many parts of the lakes from this well positioned accommodation

We were a party of 12 (3 families) and the house was perfect for us, plenty of space, great dining room and living room, and well equipped kitchen. Only a five minute walk from Keswick town centre, with shops, pubs and restaurants, and plenty of opportunities to go for great walks straight from the house. Would love to stay again.
