About Helen Ball

Hi, my name is Helen. I enjoyed a second home in the Lake District while living in Yorkshire, but after 9 years of sharing the two I decided to make the Lake District my permanent home. I hope you will enjoy it here too.

Helen Ball purchased this house in 2009

Why Helen Ball chose Keswick

San Ging is a very special property that provides modern, spacious, clean and well equipped accommodation. The convenient edge of town location means guests enjoy easy access to participate in the many varied activities the Keswick area offers, whether it be out and about in the hills, sailing or paddling on the lake, or enjoying the town centre facilities.

What makes this house unique

This lovely house is situated on the edge of the town centre giving direct access to the northern, western or southern lake district. The modern split level layout of the house lends itself to larger families or groups of friends sharing, whether celebrating a special occasion or enjoying an outdoor activity holiday.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful house in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful inside and very well equipped. The views are wonderful and the house has a very modern interior. It was lovely to have so much space for our two families to spread out. Lovely complementary visit to the spa at Armathwaite (we loved the outdoor jacuzzi!) Hope to stay here again. Thank you!

Great Accomodation, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Loved this house!!! Can highly recommend it.

  • 5 of 5

Loved this house! Beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean but still felt homely & welcoming. Kitchen was exceptionally well equipped. Fresh flowers, milk & bread were a nice touch. Description is accurate but doesn't do justice to the space or the fabulous views. Stayed here as 2 families including 4 teenagers and it suited everyone. Communication with owner was very good. Would definitely return!
