Why Elisabeth Messenger chose Keswick
3 Limepots is such a great location, with the added bonus of being a five minute level walk into Keswick. Keswick is a wonderful market town set on the beautiful shores of Lake Derwentwater. The town offers a great selection of cafes, pubs and many shops to explore, with a selection of attractions. There really is something for everyone staying at Limepots.

100% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date.
Cosy and fun cottage
Very nice and cosy with many sofas so that everyone could find their preferred place to stay. We've also enjoyed some of the DVD for the family to watch in the evening.
This house was AMAZING!!! I definitely recommend it, especially for families. On top of all the normal stuff that you would expect, it has puzzles, games, movies and numerous books for all ages. There was a small ping pong table, perfect for kids as well. The rooms were arranged so that intimate conversation could be had in one room while other people are playing or having quiet time in a different room. There was a HUGE amount of information provided about the house and fun things to do in the area. The house location was right in town, VERY close to grocery stores, including Boothes which is a supermarket. Even though it's close to fun shopping and within walking distance of a beautiful lake, the house was not near heavy traffic that made alot of noise. This was by far one of the best short term rental experiences I have ever had. Well worth the money.
Thank you very much for a fabulous review. So pleased you all loved the house and your mini break in Keswick. Thank you again. Elisabeth
I visited Limepots for a week over October half term with my wife and 2 young children. House is very well located about 5 mins walk from the centre of Keswick (there is also a petrol station and spa opposite the house for the essentials).
House is very well appointed with everything you would need. I’m a keen cook and I was very impressed with equipment in the kitchen.
Bedrooms excellent and can easily sleep 6. Lots of space in general.
Perfectly clean on arrival.
Great communication and help from the owner when booking and during our stay.
We shall definitely be back. Outstanding!!!
Thank you so much for such a lovely review. Delighted you loved the house and its wonderful qualities. You were super guests to have stay and would love to welcome you all back again another time.
Thank you again

Thank you Steve and Family for such a lovely review, very kind. Glad you all had a super time despite the weather! The open fire is such a bonus when its cold and wet outside. We would love to welcome all back again in the future.

This is the perfect holiday house!
This spacious, clean and attractive house is the perfect base for a holiday in the lakes.
The house is within walking distance of the town centre, park and swimming pool whilst also being a fantastic base for walking in the fells.
Ample off-street parking and a real log- fire make it hassle free and cosy. The beds were extremely comfortable and the street is very quiet, you’d never know your in a town!
The best holiday home we’ve ever had the pleasure of staying in.
Thank you vey much for such a lovely review. We ae delighted you had a super stay at 3 Limepots. We would love to welcome you all again in the future.

Keswick is a fabulous location for exploring the beautiful Lake District and Cumbria. From the stunning scenery, fell walks, mountain biking and lots more to discover. With so much to offer, for all ages. Keswick is a really great town which certainly as something for everyone. A array of cafes, pubs and restaurants catering for everyone's needs. The town boasts a park called Fitz park, only five minute walk from Limepots, a free park for everyone to use and has the most wonderful children's play area and a very good cafe too. The walk down to the lake is very pretty and is about 15 minutes for the house. The views are just breathtaking. The launches which run on Derwentwater is a must, a boat trip on this lake is worth every penny, you can either do the full round trip or just hop on or off as you like.
Theatre by the Lake is an events venue and puts on some fantastic plays and performances throughout the year. The town also has a cinema showing the latest films . In the day you can explore the unique Keswick Museum, a super place telling you all about the history of Keswick and the area. Also The Pencil Museum , here you can have your picture taken with the longest pencil in the world! The puzzle museum is great fun and worth a visit, likewise if your feeling energetic a visit to King Kong indoor adventure centre, here you can ice climb, try indoor caving and also as a kids play area, a great all weather attraction. Keswick Leisure pool, with wave machine and giant slide for hours of fun. All the above are all located in the town. Further afield is Whinlatter visitor centre, here you can explore the forest by foot, mountain bike. Also located here is Go Ape, a tree top adventure and if your lucky you may even spot a gruffalo! Honister Mines, explore the mines at the top of the Borrowdale Valley and if your feeling brave you can try out the Via Ferrata, a high wire mountain climb! Mirehouse and gardens are only 2 miles away, here you discover the delightful gardens and house. Castlerigg Stone Circle, free to visit a wonderful example of a prehistoric monument. Threlkeld Quarry and Mining Museum, here you can find out more about our heritage. The area around Keswick is to be discovered, explore the beautiful valleys of Newlands , Buttermere and Borrowdale.
A car is useful but don't worry we have a excellent bus network in Cumbria, a call by to the local tourist information for further details is well worth doing. The information centre is located in The Moot Hall, located in the market square, here you can plan your days ahead and find out what's on and lots more. Cumbria is a fantastic and diverse county and is well worth exploring throughout.
Carlisle, The Great Border City and Hadrians Wall are to the North of Keswick a 45 minute drive in the car. Grasmere, Ambleside, Windermere and Kendal are very special places and all the villages in between not forgetting the breathtaking scenery and a few sheep along the way! The Cumbrian coastline offers wild and beautiful landscape to explore. The Eden valley is worth a detour a hidden gem off the beaten track. Also Scotland is only eight miles from Carlisle, so you easily take yourself across the border for the day.
If I can help in anyway to assist in planning your days out or you would like advice on fell walks, cycling routes, places to visit etc. Please free to contact me, I will be more than happy to help in making your holiday a happy and memorable one. Elisabeth
