The cottage is very central, close to Fitz park and only a minutes walk to the shops, pubs and restaurants of Keswick, and is ideally situated for all amenities. There is parking for one car at the rear of the cottage and also a parking permit for additional parking less than 50 metres away. The cottage is double glazed and has remote controlled gas central heating throughout. At the front of the cottage there is a small area with slate chips and potted shrubs.
As you enter the cottage you will appreciate the spacious, well furnished open plan lounge. The lounge has two comfortable leather sofas. There is a traditional Lakeland slate and mineral fireplace with an electric stove, ideal for cosy nights in. The dining area has an oak dining table and six chairs and pine dresser. This room is well lit and very comfortable.
To the back of the cottage is the kitchen which is compact but very well equipped. Facilities include gas oven and hob, dishwasher, fridge with a small freezing compartment, microwave and all equipment needed for your holiday. From the kitchen there is a small porch with a washing machine and clothes dryer.
On the first floor there are two good sized bedrooms. The twin bedroom has two single beds, oak furniture and looks out to the front towards the town. A wall mounted TV and DVD player is provided. The second bedroom is a single room with views towards Latrigg and Skiddaw. On this floor is the beautiful newly refurbished bathroom which is fully tiled, nicely finished and has bath with rain shower over, WC and wash basin.
The master bedroom is on the second floor. This is a large room with beams and sloping ceilings and has fabulous views from both windows. The room itself is very nicely furnished with double bed, quality oak furniture but with the added benefit of two wicker chairs, a small table and TV with compact DVD player - a room to escape from other members of the party! Now with new ensuite toilet and basin. From the master bedroom there is access over the windowsill to the roof terrace with seating. There is sun on this terrace all day and the views over the rooftops to the fells are stunning and constantly changing. All bedrooms are beautifully presented with luxury linen and towels.

Handy to have toilet attached to top room, and bathroom was clean and modern. The boot space near back door was very helpful. We enjoyed being a short walk from everything we needed in Keswick. Car parking space at the back was quite tight and you do have quite a few people walking passed the front window. Overall we enjoyed our stay, and Keswick staff were very responsive, but compared to other cottages we have stayed in, we felt for the high price, there was a lack of a attention to detail, and the cottage apart from bathroom had not been improved for quite a long time, sofas could have been more comfortable, and more spare toilet roll left.
A lovely cottage, great position for shops and parks, we had a good week at Abacourt, kitchen was on the small size but had everything we needed, enjoyed sitting on balcony enjoying the views.
This was a super cottage in an ideal location, we probably paid slightly more because we booked later than normal and for only 5 nights. Having said that, we were very happy with the house and have booked it for 7 nights next year. There was plenty room for the 5 of us (all adults) and we particularly enjoyed the balcony on the top floor and its views. It was spotlessly clean and we appreciated the welcome kit. (Improvement)Suggestions: - A mirror in the upstairs toilet, and a socket for an electric razor in the bathroom. - If travelling with 2 cars use the parking space at the back of the house for the smaller car .turning space is tight.
