The Ridgeway is a beautiful Victorian property, with many personal touches to create a ’home from home’ feel and ideal for those wishing to be close to all local amenities but just out of the way of traffic and crowds. The fully enclosed south facing patio has wonderful views to the fells for perfect al fresco dining. Private parking is allocated opposite for one car. The large, bright lounge with high ceilings on the first floor has a fabulous bay window looking out over Keswick to Catbells and the fells beyond. There are two large sofas and an open fire for cosy winter nights, with dining table in the picture postcard bay window. There is a flat-screen TV, DVD and games console with blue-tooth DAB Radio / CD player and plenty of Lakeland guides. The twin bedroom with new oak furniture (chest of drawers and wardrobe) and DAB radio is also on the first floor with lovely views towards Latrigg. This room can be converted to a King-size bed upon request. The newly refurbished first floor bathroom is fully tiled and has a double ended bath, separate shower cubicle, towel rail and wash hand basin.  There is a separate WC on this floor.  On the ground floor there is a bright double bedroom with a bay window overlooking the patio/garden.

Our first time to the Lakes and Keswick and wow what a great place to visit !! We are hooked.....beautiful scenery, amazing walks and fantastic selection of shops, pubs and restaurants right on the doorstep ! Position of the apartment is just perfect as in a quiet street but 2 mins away from Fitz park and the town so no need to drive ! The apartment was cosy and comfortable and so well equipped. The utility/ boot room is a particular asset as so much easier when you are muddy and wet from your fell walks. The open fire is lovely to have to so we often warmed up infront of it with a hot choc. Recommend getting the launch over to Hawes landing to climb the Cat Bells ! Amazing memories made with our 2 girls and dog. Will most definitely be going back !!
Besser 30th October 2020
We had a wonderful stay here. The house is still very comfortable despite Covid. We bought a few games & DVDs with us to cover rainy days/evenings - we only used them on the evenings as the days were mainly fine with only one day having heavy showers. We were most impressed with Keswick cottages service as we came home one day after a days walking to find the boiler had stopped, no hot water or heating. We contacted Keswick cottages by email (it was already after 6pm) assuming we would have to have a cold, uncomfortable night and hoping things would be fixed by the end of the following day. By 8pm the service man had been and gone and the house was getting warm again as we washed up with steaming water. Well done Keswick Cottages! The double bed is a little on the firm side but we solved that by putting an extra bedcover under the sheet.
Gabby from Edinburgh 23rd October 2020
A lovely week spent in this superb apartment. It was immaculately presented under Covid regulations and we felt very comfortable. Highly recommended.
Val Booth from Bolton 9th October 2020
A fantastic apartment- looks much better than the photos and is in such a great location to head out to the fells or wander into the village for food and drinks. I couldn't recommend more.
Sinead from Warrington 9th December 2019
Everything about the place was perfect. Beautiful kitchen, baths, and bedrooms, excellent location with 2 grocery stores and a pharmacy as well as great food within 5-10 minutes' walk, easy access to Derwent Water lake, and the town of Keswick itself is everything we hoped it would be. If there's one thing Brits know how to do, it's to make people feel comfortable and happy! Can't wait to go back.
Sarah S 9th November 2019
Our second visit, and we were just as impressed as on the first occasion. Thoroughly recommended.
John from Cambridge 13th September 2019
The Ridgeway is ideally located in a quiet poistion just off Keswick Main Street. The standard of the accomodation is excellent. The views are spectacular due to the layout - the living room is on the first floor to maximise the scenery. We will certainly revisit. We have been to Keswick on many occasions but this has been certainly the most stressless booking to date. This is due to the attention and advice from Keswick Cottages and Rebecca in particular. Highly recommended.
David from Wirral 29th April 2019
Home from Home. Great Location.
M. Triffitt from Harrogate 12th April 2019
Very clean house. Look forward to staying again.
Mrs Coleman from North Lanarkshire 18th March 2019
Excellent accommodation, Could not fault it. Great location.
Mr M Stewart from N.Tyneside 8th March 2019
This house is literally two minutes from Keswick centre - the high street, Co-op, Booths, cafes for breakfast, restaurants and pubs. The lounge being upstairs and kitchen down seemed a bit strange to start with but the lounge view of the fells from the table when eating/reading is just superb. A very clean house with a fully kitted out kitchen for people who like to cook. I would not hesitate to stay here again
Andy from Leeds 10th August 2018
The three of us from the US loved this place and the reasonable cost. The single took the upstairs bedroom that adjoins the lovely living/sitting room, and we took the downstairs bedroom that adjoins the kitchen. The view from the living room is awesome, we breakfasted at the dining table with its spectacular view each day (we were there 3 nights/4 days). The living room is equipped with enough - books, TV, etc - to keep anyone busy on a rainy day but we were blessed with good weather. One of us was ill for a day with a bad cold while the other two went sightseeing. The sick one reported having a very comfortable day, sleeping and recovering, enjoying the books provided in the living room. Great kitchen with all we needed to prepare and store food, make morning tea, etc. Both the upstairs and downstairs bedrooms had their own toilet/shower facilities each accessed down a hall but both were out of view of the other, so completely private. Loved having our own parking spot right in front of the property. The flat over ours had vacationers too but we heard nothing from them. The only sound we experienced was morning piano practice from next door in this split house. It was charming. We enjoyed the short walking distance, just down a short hill, to Keswick town center for the Saturday Market and numerous restaurants and shops. We dined at The Bank Tavern twice, was great both times. I wish the US had pubs like this one. In summary, we three loved our experience here.
David from US 11th May 2018
Excellent accommodation, well furnished and looked after. Has all the essentials you will need whilst you are on holiday. Perfect location for Keswick as well with the town literally on your doorstep and Derwent Water just a short walk away. Would definitely go back.
Henley from Maidenhead 11th August 2017
Super situation close to keswick centre but tucked just quietly out the way. very handy to pop to the shops for basic needs ,milk ,bread ,newspapers etc
Mick from Leicester 21st July 2017
Again a fabulous week! We love coming here. Accommodation is first class. No complaints. A lot of thought has clearly gone into making this a home from home - thankyou! Views are amazing!
Whitaker Family from Co.Durham 17th February 2017
We love The Ridgeway, it is a cosy but spacious flat with everything you need. The location is perfect, central but quiet. We'll be back!
Hayton Family from Lincoln 24th February 2017
An ideal property in Central Keswick. We were able to walk to all the Keswick restaurants and down to the Lake without have no to worry about Parking. The property was clean and well maintained and the Children appreciated the quality of the Wifi. Lovely views over the town and the surrounding hills. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen had everything that was needed. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who wanted to stay in Keswick.
Price from Surrey 26th August 2016
Thankyou so much. We had a great holiday and the apartment was perfect for the four of us and our hound. Everybody was so friendly in Keswick and we were made to feel welcome wherever we went......see you next year! Matthew, Victoria, Ionie, Freya and Chilli
Matthew Haslett from Somerset 25th March 2016
F antastic apartment, very clean, tidy and comfortable. A mazing view from the lounge window. B rilliant facilities throughout.
Alexander from Staffordshire 22nd June 2015
By far one of the best apartments we have stayed in and certainly the best views we have ever had of the Lake District. It was immaculately clean, tidy and had everything you could possibly want for a comfortable weekend away. Our thanks to yourselves and the owners who have refurbished Ridgeway to a high standard since taking ownership last year.
Jeanette Craik from Northumberland 1st May 2015
Very comfortable and well equipped. The excellent weather allowed us to enjoy the beautiful views. A restful & relaxing haven - look forward to returning.
Nicky & Martin from Knaresborough 1st December 2014
Looking out the top livingroom window to snow covered hills, snowing again so they will soon disappear. The scene is just beautiful, so glad I booked the cottage. It is also clean , warm and very homely. New kitchen, bathroom. Would love to come back again sometime, defo recommend to family and friends. Loads of walks for all abilities and some good pubs. Love the Dog and Gun as it's very dog friendly. Well og to the pub for lunch as it's to wet to walk lol x
Gail & John O'Boyle from Edinburgh 24th January 2015
Just like to thank you for our wonderful stay at the Ridgeway 17th Nov to 21st Nov. The accommodation was first class very clean, cosy and warm. Felt like home from home. Had a great time on several walks knowing we had beautiful accommodation to return to. Will hopefully return again in March next year. Thanks again Keswick Cottages. Regards Cooper Family

Jolley from Derbyshire 18th April 2014
Clean comfortable accommodation with excellent views from the living room. Very good location with it being in the centre and just a short walk to the lake.
Mr & Mrs Lane from Hartlepool 5th May 2014
‘We have recently bought The Ridgeway as we spend a lot of time in The Lakes and we fell in love with the views, spacious rooms and quiet central location. Having worked with local tradesmen on renovating and refurbishing the apartment, we hope you enjoy the place as much as we do and make the most of walks from the door and frequent some of our favourite local pubs and restaurants.
Julia & Simon from North Yorkshire 4th April 2014
Wonderful break in this lovely house. Will be back.
Ian & Linda R from N.Yorkshire 8th February 2013
