Having had parents and family living in Keswick and have now moved away we have to rent a property if we want a holiday. Lords Seat can be described in one word SUPERB. Although it was top of the range it was worth every penny. Well equipped beautifully furnished and decorated and the bath , a real way to relax after a long walk.!! Treat yourselves it is good value for money. The drive into Keswick is not far , the local pubs serve good food and you have some fantastic walks on your door step. The hotels in Keswick which might give you this quality accommodation will cost you a lot more. Just wish I could bring my dog , but when you see the quality of the flat you know why they do not take dogs. Many thanks we will be back. P.S What Keswick cottages say and print is very true. Very efficient firm and very friendly would use them again.Christine Barker

A fresh new bathroom and a further ground floor shower area are provided for convenience. A small outdoor area with seating and lockable outdoor storage are provided, perfect for bicycles or other small outdoor equipment.
We had a family weekend in Keswick, we visit Keswick 1-2 times a year since I can remember and it was our first time staying in a self catered cottage! We were extremely impressed by the warm, homily accommodation! It had everything we needed and more for a relaxing weekend! Help from Keswick Cottages in organising the weekend with emails and advice has been superb!Boal Family

Eight adults are comfortably accommodated in four tastefully styled bedrooms, three double or king and one twin. Rustic bench and vintage metal seating are provided in the kitchen, which is finished to high specification in timber. Many period features are retained, include bedroom fireplaces (decorative only) and the turn-of-the-century blue and red hall floor tiles. A log-burning stove offers cosy warmth in the living areas. Guests benefit from a new bathroom and a further shower room, with the latter at ground level. One bedroom is also at ground floor level for those who prefer to avoid stairs. Guests at Number Seven have their own private outdoor area with seating, together with lockable outdoor storage and fenced perimeter.
The property was beautifully prepared for us , clean and welcoming and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. It was in a great position very close to the shops and eating places in Keswick. I thought the lack parking might be an issue - but the car park is just across the road and we hardly used the car the first few days of our holiday anyway! Keswick is beautiful and the whole process of booking with Keswick Cottages was made very easily. The beds were exceptionally comfortable. My only complaint is that the sink in the kitchen was too small and so water splashes easily around.Stephanie Farmer

Can I just say we have just had 3 days at no 9 the townhouses in Keswick. What a wonderful place really well finished everything we could possibly want. In the middle of town which was great easy to get to shops and bars. Would definitely stay again.Amanda bastow

A charming Lakeland 'snug' with views of Skiddaw, Barf Cottage is situated in the tranquil village on the edge of Derwentwater. Within an easy 20 minute walk to the market town of Keswick the cottage is a stone throw away from the local pub The Farmers Arms, a 5 minute walk from 'The Chalet' tearooms and restaurant and a 10 minute walk to Derwent and Nicole End Marinas. Recently refurbished, the cottage retains all the original features of a traditional Lakeland cottage yet at the same time offers modern fixtures, comfort and style. A small yet characterful front garden has outdoor seating to enjoy that 'post hike' drink on sunny afternoons and evenings. The cottage serves as a wonderful bolthole for couples, small groups of friends or families.
A superb semi-detached bungalow with wonderful views on an attractive site within a pleasant residential area on the edge of Keswick, between Fitz Park and the lower slopes of Latrigg. ‘Blencathra’ is about a 10 minute easy stroll to Keswick’s Market Square.
The accommodation was spotlessly clean, really well equipped and in a lovely, private location with stunning views and my brother(down from Glasgow)and I really enjoyed our 4-night stay. We were both delighted and we got really lucky with weather. Rebecca at Keswich Cottages could not have been more helpful. 5 star. Thank you from both of us. PS Hope to return with my wife.Vince Leonard

Apartment 3 is part of the Bridge House Complex which offers private parking for two cars, large gardens and a tennis court.
We had a lovely stay. The apartment is very well equipped and comfortable. The gallery pictures need to be updated a little as the climbing play area no longer exists and there is now a trampoline. Despite being on one of the main roads in Keswick, road noise is non-existent at night. Once again we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday with Keswick Cottages and will be delighted to come back again next year.The Russells

Built in 1880, this traditional Lakeland cottage was originally constructed to house teachers in the old school (now the Rawnsley Centre) opposite. Retaining many original features, and simple stylish decoration, this centrally located house has views of Skiddaw and Latrigg to the front, and a magnificent mountain vista to the rear. The property is a mere two minutes' walk to the heart of Keswick.
We had the best Christmas Eva in the most fabulous cottage, perfect location, exceptionally comfortable, everything has been thought out to make it home from home, very warm and welcoming, it must of been amazing as we plan to return again same time this year if we can.Mullinder Family

This 18th Century, two bedroom beamed cottage is very comfortable and is just around the corner to the town centre, lake and parks, an ideal situation for those wanting to be close to all the local amenities. Situated in a small square just of Derwent Street, the cottage offers private, yet very central accommodation with the bonus of private parking. The ground floor is open plan and therefore feels very spacious. An established long term favorite, well worth a visit. Plenty of storage for bikes, boots, jackets etc.
Daisy Cottage has everything you can wish for to be away from home. Staff at Keswick Cottages cannot be more helpful and the owner is just wonderful will do anything to give you the holiday of your dreams. 2014 will be our 18th year which must speak for itself. Thank you.Irene & Colin Armstrong

Wonderful holiday again, lovely cottage and friendly, helpful staff. Have already booked again for next year, will be our fourth visit to Ghylll Bank.Hilary Sutherland
