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.

The cottage is an excellent base being so close to the shops & also in walking distance to some great walks. The cottage was adequately equipped. The highlight being the outside seating area off the master bedroom. It was nice eating outside in privacy whilst enjoying great views of the surrounding mountains. Parking was a bonus for central Keswick, but beware it is really tight & only a small or medium size car will fit. To compensate a parking permit was a good gesture. In summary we would recommend provided it doesn't go up too much in cost
Great location close to the high st, great parking facilities we just had the one car which there is parking for and they provide additional parking in a long stay carpark a minutes walk away . Properly meet our needs , only downsides was it was quite dusty felt like no one had stayed in a while, and the sofa wasnt the comfiest , no cushions on them either . Either than that was a nice place
The house was clean and warm and plenty big enough for 4 adults, although the kitchen is quite small, with only a small freezer in the fridge. The staircases were a little steep especially the one to the third floor. It has a roof terrace which was pleasant to sit out on. There is parking at the rear but it is a tight turn and best suited to small cars only, especially when the other parking spaces there are being used. The parking permit for the nearby long stay car park was very useful. We had to buy more toilet rolls, as there were no extra ones supplied and more washing up liquid. For some reason there was no teapot! The bed in the small bedroom was quite creaky, but generally ok. The house is well situated for the town centre and Fitz Park, very useful if you have a dog. We had a pleasant stay at the house.
