This is the perfect holiday house!

  • 5 of 5

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

Cosy, family friendly house on the edge of Keswick

  • 5 of 5

Really lovely house, very well equipped and beautifully decorated. Couldn't ask for more, 5/10 minute amble in to the town centre. We had a fabulous time during our stay and would highly recommend if you are looking for a property in walking distance of Keswick town centre with a cosy, family friendly feel.

We will definitely be returning.

Spacious, bright and comfortable house close to Keswick town centre

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic base for exploring the Keswick area. Spacious well equipped house within short walking distance of Keswick town centre. Off street parking.

House has everything you require- comfy beds, great shower, well equipped kitchen and plenty of logs for the open fire. A cosy and warm place to return to after a day's walking or exploring the area. Highly recommend the Pheasant Inn but you must book. Will definitely come back next time in Keswick.

Fabulous family home from home: Limepots!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at Limepots under its new ownership- Elisabeth and Richard have made wonderful, high quality improvements to the property, which we have stayed at many times in previous years. As hosts, we couldn't have asked for more-every detail was carefully thought out, and communicated well before our stay, so 10/10 for customer service. The property is a beautiful home, immaculately clean, well maintained, and very tastefully decorated throughout- the website pictures do not really do it justice.

Limepots is a 5 minute flat walk to the centre of Keswick, 2 minutes to the park, and just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the town to be peaceful and quiet. There is a drive that easily can park two/ three cars plus a safe garage for storing bikes or equipment you may bring. There is also a private garden, with seating, so that you can relax there if you are lucky enough to get some sunshine.

The house is well equipped with everything you may ever need, and more! The new kitchen is fabulous, and the new downstairs bathroom is a definite improvement and saves queueing for the upstairs bathroom! There are lots of little things that make a family holiday that little bit easier- you can literally bring your clothes and walking boots and go! We have stayed here many times, and have lots of friends and family who have stayed after our recommendation- the new improved Limepots is even better! Im sure even the pickiest of guests would find it hard to pick fault here.

We love the Lakes, and Keswick has it all, in my opinion-great days out for walking, boat trips, fab foodie places to eat, and lovely pubs to quench your thirst in. The town has a family friendly vibe, and there are loads of lovely shops to browse. We particularly enjoyed Lingholme at the far side of Derwentwater- lovely food, great service and a wonderful setting for morning coffee & cake, or a hearty lunch. A lot of time and money has obviously been spent on Keswick after the terrible floods, and it was obvious the town had recovered and bounced back larger then life. Buy a weekly pass for the Keswick launch, get your walking boots on, enjoy the great outdoors... coming home to a lovely log fire, and a beautiful home from home in Limepots just adds to the pleasure!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Sadie for such a fantastic review and so pleased you all love the changes we have made. Always feel a bit nervous to welcome previous guests back to the new Limepots but it is always a joy when the feedback is great and that they love the changes we have made. So pleased you all had a wonderful stay and got out and about too. We would love to welcome you all back in near further and many more times after that. Thank you once again for your time in putting a review on here. Very best wishes Elisabeth, Richard and Family

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
