Skiddaw Skies is situated in a quiet no through road in the heart of Keswick, an ideal location for easy access to local amenities, Fitz Park and the beautiful Lake Derwentwater, yet tucked away from any passing traffic or passers-by. This recently renovated apartment is the upper floors of a lovely Victorian property, and its elevated position provides fabulous panoramic views across the fells from all windows. There is a superb newly-refurbished roof terrace which is the perfect place to sit and take in the wonderful scenery over a sunny breakfast or on summer evenings. A private parking space for one car is allocated just opposite the property.  The lounge is spacious, light and comfortable, with two large windows looking across Keswick towards Catbells and the north western fells. This room is well equipped and furnished with two settees, dining table and chairs, a large flat-screen TV, DVD and CD player. It has an open fire for cosy winter evenings and books and maps on the local area are provided. The very modern fitted kitchen is situated next to the lounge and is well equipped with an electric oven, gas hob, dishwasher, washer/dryer, fridge, freezer, microwave and a breakfast bar with great Latrigg views. The luxurious main bathroom is newly fitted to a high standard, with a large shower, roll-top bath, wash basin and WC. On the upper floor, there are two adjacent bedrooms. The large double bedroom has plenty of storage space, a flat screen TV and a double bed from which the fantastic fell views can be admired. This room has a newly fitted ensuite bathroom with a shower, wash basin and WC. The second bedroom has two single beds, a wardrobe, chest of drawers, dressing table and views towards Skiddaw. Towels are provided for this property, with a bath sheet, two bath towels and a hand towel per bedroom.   A travel cot and high chair are also available if needed. Four leisure passes are included with all bookings, granting free entry to Keswick Leisure Pool and Fitness Centre.

Beautiful apartment. Nice decor. Clean, home from home; everything you may need. Fantastic views from every window - like the sun terrace. Keswick speaks for itself. Lovely place, thank you.
C from York 18th July 2014
Great place to stay, so close to the town, and surrounded by so many mountain walks.Very clean and fresh apartment, had everything i needed. Stunning views from back and front! loved the balcony. Thank you for a lovely stay.
Samantha from Norfolk 16th June 2014
We have recently bought this fantastic apartment as we love Keswick and the hills, and have refurbished and renovated some of the property. It is really convenient for local amenities and the spectacular views from all windows will enable you to plan your hill walks from the comfort of your lounge or bedroom! With a real fire for winter and roof terrace for summer, we look forward to welcoming you here and hope it will offer all you need for a really enjoyable holiday in the Lakes.
The Neal Family from London 20th May 2014
A very clean, comfortable, welcoming, warm house in a quiet street right in the centre of Keswick with fantastic views which remind you that you're in the heart of the Lake District. We would highly recommend this house and Keswick Cottages for their friendly efficient service.
Fiona & Chris from Worcester 15th November 2013
As regular visitors to Keswick this property has spectacular views and is set in a peaceful location. The parking space was and an added bonus. Loved the roof terrace.
Elaine from Leicester 1st June 2013
Second visit to this great house. Well equipped and comfortable with amazing views. Looking forward to our next visit. Many Thanks.
Elliott from Cheshire 4th February 2013
Great week, great house, great views!
N Rowe from Hartfordshire 28th December 2012
A warm, cosy cottage with fantastic views. Thanks.
R Owens from Northumberland 26th October 2012
Great spacious apartment, very clean. We saw the deer and heard the owl most days. We arrived to thick snow on the mountains and blue sky, but it soon changed to dull, wet and windy, but still very enjoyable. So many great walks. Would recommend Catbells on a clear day and the walk through the woods to Latrigg. Good walks at white Moss Woods along the A591 outside Grasmere. Thanks for the Christmas tree and gifts. A very enjoyable stay.
Dawn and Mike Thomas from Essex 18th December 2011
To sum up our stay, we are both more than a little sad today – we have to leave this clean, fresh apartment in its wonderful setting. Our first trip to The Lakes has been a memorable one. We’ll be back.
Linda and Jonathan Read from Northampton 26th September 2011
Just wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed staying at Skiddaw Skies. This holiday property was perfect for our family and enabled us to have a fantastic holiday. Since we stay in Keswick at least once a year (usually in August) we very much hope to stay at Skiddaw Skies again next year. I cannot imagine a better property for our annual holiday in Keswick.
Jacqui Piner from Baldock 12th August 2011
We had a fantastic holiday here. Great location, lovely view and very peaceful. Highly recommended.
Suman and Tahmina Das from London 20th June 2011
We just wanted to say how much we appreciated the accommodation, finding it extremely well equipped, comfortable and welcoming, and of course with spectacular views. We also appreciated the efficient way in which you have managed our booking and would recommend the accommodation and Keswick Cottages to others. Many thanks.
Marilyn Goss from Kent 3rd September 2010
We were very pleased with the accommodation at Skiddaw Skies, it was very clean, very comfortable and had character. We usually stay at the lodges at Bassenthwaite Lake but decided to try closer to town for our daughters to be more independent. With the convenience & views – it's now one of our favourite places. The staff at Keswick Cottages were very friendly & helpful, and we will certainly use your company again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend you. Unfortunately it's a long trip for us otherwise we would come up more often!
