Number Five The Townhouses accommodates up to eight adults, in three double or king bedrooms and one twin bedroom, over three floors of bright, freshly renovated accommodation. Rustic bench and vintage metal seating are provided in the kitchen, which is finished to high specification in timber. Number Five retains the turn-of-the-century blue and red hall floor tiles and some of the period bedroom fireplaces (decorative only). A log-burning stove offers cosy warmth in the living area. 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. A twin room is available on the second floor on request. Guests at Number Five benefit from a secluded outdoor area with seating to relax at the end of a day exploring the fells, together with lockable outdoor storage and useful gated fenced perimeter.
Incredibly roomy, surprisingly large house with great beds, clean and well-decorated, and with a good kitchen with everything you could possibly need. The house is on a main road but not too noisy, though we all slept in rear bedrooms. The garden is a yard, and the only quibble was that the outdoor furniture was not as clean as everything else in the house. Keswick is a wonderful town with good places to eat and drink, a great theatre, a cute cinema, & vegans are catered for in a lot of cafes and restaurants. We swam in Buttermere and Ullswater, both lovely lakes, and walked every day nearby. We found driving home southwards that we preferred this part of the Lake District to the softer, more wooded southern part. Highly recommendedrosegrow 2019-07-08

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 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.

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.
We have had a lovely stay in this great cottage. Everyone so very helpful and friendly too. This is our second year here, & its just as good this time around. Many thanksThe Andrews Family

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.
Four adults, a 9 month year old and two dogs had the most amazing stay at the Cottage. It's situated in the best location, so close to town and amenities. It was incredibly clean and the beds were really comfy. Parking so close was great and the shared garden with the kids play area was brilliant for the dogs. We had everything we needed and more... highly recommend. Working with the team at Keswick cottages was also fantastic, they are incredibly efficient. We're already working out when we can come back with others. xKelson & Salisburys'

Crandy Nook is a fabulous 4-bed maisonette set over 3 floors, refurbished to a very high specification, and boasting stunning views of Skiddaw, Walla Crag and Latrigg. Set right in the heart of Keswick this property offers everything you could need, modern facilities, spacious rooms, high ceilings, views over the town centre to the fells beyond and easy access to restaurants, shops, cafes, pubs, shops etc and less 100 metres from Fitz park. Ideal for larger groups or anyone who wants to forget about the car and be right in the hub of the vibrant town.
I stayed here with my partner and another couple for 3 nights as we were taking part in a charity challenge. We arrived on Friday, followed the directions which were great. There is no parking outside the cottage but you get two passes for the local car park which is less than 5 minutes away. We were able to unload the car etc. The cottage has 3 floors. A double room, single room and bathroom on the first two floors. We only used the two doubles but they were all perfectly clean with fresh linen and towels etc. the bathrooms were spotless. The top floor consists of a well equipped kitchen and a living room. Once again everything was clean and well kept. There is a flat screen tv, blu ray etc. there is wifi but we struggled connecting and could get connection on one sofa but this wasn't a major issue really. We easily used the kitchen to make meals which was nice and simple. They supply you with dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, tea towels etc. downstairs is a utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer which came in very handy after our challenge. The location was perfect with easy access to the town center and local park etc. The cottage is pet friendly with the exception of pets going in the bedrooms which wasn't a problem at all. Overall, we all enjoyed our stay and would return. It was great value for money especially considering the location and how modern everything was.Hill

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.
Thank you Keswick cottages for yet another great holiday even after 18 years it just gets better if that is possible. Please Thank Wendy for me for having such a beautiful cottage which we treat like home each year.We are are honoured that we are able to stay there year after year. Also thank you Keswick Cottages for your follow up phone call to ask if everything was alright - thats what I call looking after your clients. Thank you.Colin, Irene and Pippy the parrot
