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

Number Nine The Townhouses offers extensive accommodation for up to ten adults in four double or king bedrooms and one twin bedroom. Two bedrooms boast their own private shower facilities in contemporary style. A further freshly styled bathroom is provided. One twin bedroom is located at ground floor level which may be presented as a super king if preferred. Number Nine offers a separate dining room for its guests with solid oak dining furniture and double doors opening out onto a small secluded outdoor seating area. The luxuriously styled living room, with deep cushion-piled sofa, wooden flooring and a real log burning stove, opens out through double doors onto a further small private outdoor seating area.
This is our first booking via Keswick Cottages and hopefully won't be our last .we were a party of 6 adults one little 4 year old and two infants . We found that the accommodation met our needs perfectly.The two ensuites and family bathroom meant no queuing and waiting for each other to get ready. We were extremely lucky with the weather having 5 glorious days out of the seven so not inside very much at all. Having said that the nice large dining room enabled us to have family meals together and the lounge provided enough seating for all of us.The kitchen has more then enough supplies of plates, glasses cups to allow a full load in the dishwasher and still have plenty to use.The location is ideal a short walk to town and on the door step of Fitz park and the leisure centre. We received a quick and curteous response from the agent over a minor query regarding the infant cot we hired .Had no problems at all , we all enjoyed our family time together and our stay at 9 The Townhouses and hope to book again.Langstreth

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.
Wonderful warm and cosy cottage. Great location with lots of great walks. We will defiantly be back to Barf Cottage!!Tracey

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.
Comfortable, spacious, well situated. Excellent service from Keswick Cottages as always. Only problem ( missing extra parking permit ) rectified in 10 minutes.Derek

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.
Lovely holiday, really loved the cottage, hope to come back again. Landlord really helpful.Val, Eddie and Poppy the dog plus Karen, Dan and Radley the dog

Ghyll Bank and Ghyll Bank Cottage are two very tastefully restored cottages, full of character with oak beams and open fires in a spectacular setting looking out towards Causey Pike and up towards Catbells. These properties are in an ideal location if you want tranquility, natural surroundings, views from every window, walks in every direction from the doorstep and easy access to Keswick which is only 15 minutes drive through some stunning scenery.
We had a great week in Ghyll Bank in November. The cottage was superb - spacious, well appointed and comfortable ... home from home. Surrounded by mountains and miles from civilisation - the stunning location was a bonus and a delight. There were plenty of scenic walks from the door - the Newlands Valley was ours for the week! The wet Lakeland weather could not dampen the spirit!!. This was our second stay at the cottage and we will probably return, A big thank you to Keswick Cottages - the personal service they provide comes highly recommended.Cooper Family
