Very nice town house in the heart of Keswick. Well equipped, decorated and maintained. Very comfortable beds. One of the bedrooms is downstairs and there is also a shower on that level so good if you have an elderly person in the party. The only downside is that you cannot park to unload directly outside the house. Otherwise we had a great stay and will probably book again.Fry

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 a 10 minute walk to Derwent and Nicole End Marinas. The cottage retains all the original features of a traditional Lakeland home 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 very enjoyable week in a super cosy cottage. Enjoyed lots of walks from the door. Loved playing 'Trivial Persuit' on an evening with a drink! Thank you for a lovely clean, well equipped cottage. Hope to return!The Husbands

Gold award winning ground floor apartment, built in 1707 now with deluxe underfloor heated tiled floor throughout. With original Georgian features sympathetically restored, this apartment makes an ideal base from which to explore all Keswick has to offer. The apartment is part of the Bridge House Complex which offers private parking for two cars, large shared garden and a tennis court.
We had a great week in this cottage. Fabulous to be able to walk in to town for food in the evening, and to allow our 12 year old children a bit of independence to walk to nearby shops on their own. For the first 3 days didn't get in the car with great walking, cycling easy from the house. A very comfortable place and the trampoline and tennis court a bonus. We will be back.Wilkinson

Gold award winning Apartment 3 is part of the Bridge House Complex which offers private parking for two cars, large shared garden and a tennis court.
We had a lovely week in the Lake District and were very pleased with our cottage. Very clean, well equipped and nicely decorated. We found it much more than just an average holiday home to stay. The only minor detail was that I had expected the colors of autumn to be more explicit. They were too green still. But this is of course not for us mortals to control. If anyone of our friends ever decides to visit the Lake District, I will certainly recommend Keswick Cottages.Mr Frehe

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

Ideal for larger groups or anyone who wants to forget about the car and be right in the hub of the vibrant town.

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.
So how to sum our holiday up, perfect really, that's all! We luckily managed to book a week at Daisy Cottage last minute and wow, weren't we lucky. Daisy Cottage was perfect for 2 adults and and our 2 young daughters and dog. The cottage itself doesn't lack anything. Both bedrooms are lovely and each having their own bathroom. Plenty of space downstairs, lovely kitchen and great tv (my daughters told me to write that!). Most useful thing for us was the extra boot/bike room next door, a great space for boots/bikes/washing machine etc. Very well thought out. The location of the cottage couldn't be any better, being able to pop out for lunch and dinner (3 minute walk) was great. Would definitely stay again. Unfortunately I've already looked to book again and it seems Daisy Cottage is just too popular and there isn't much availability. I'll keep a close eye though for next year.Brady Family
