Description

A superb semi-detached bungalow with wonderful views on an attractive site within a pleasant residential area on the edge of Keswick, between Fitz Park and the lower slopes of Latrigg. ‘Blencathra’ is about a 10 minute easy stroll to Keswick’s Market Square. The property has been tastefully decorated to provide fresh and immaculately clean accommodation for up to four guests.

‘Blencathra’ has ample parking, full double glazing and gas central heating. All radiators can be individually thermostatically controlled. The bungalow is situated at the top of a small, quiet cul-de-sac. It has a westerly aspect and the fells from Coledale, across Whinlatter Forest to Barf and Skiddaw make a spectacular panorama to the front. At the rear of the property there is a spacious garden providing a peaceful, leafy green area in which to relax and enjoy views of Skiddaw and Latrigg. Red squirrels are charming, frequent visitors. Patio furniture is provided for the summer months so guests can make the most of the tranquillity.

To the left of the front door is the comfortable lounge with outstanding westerly views. Furnished with a quality leather suite, Smart TV, DVD and living flame gas fire it is warm and cosy at any time of the year.

The superb double glazed conservatory at the rear of the bungalow provides a quiet and peaceful additional space in which to relax.

The kitchen/diner has very well equipped quality wooden units, an electric oven with a gas hob, extractor fan, washer/dryer, CD/radio and a larder fridge. The freezer is located in the garage which is also a useful area for drying wet clothes - and sorting out walking boots!

There are two good sized bedrooms, one with double bed and the other with two single beds, both having quality mattresses and furniture plus beds dressed in luxury linen and towels. Please note that this property is not suitable for children under the age of 12 years old.

Reviews

A lovely property
A clean and welcoming house in a quiet cul-de-sac. It has a particularly nice conservatory with fell-top views, and a decent sized garden, but as we stayed here in the winter we (sadly) weren't able to make use of this. It's slightly further out from the town centre than properties we've stayed at before (about a 7-10 minute walk), but this has some advantages, too. We'll definitely look to book this property again the next time we stay in Keswick.
Another great stay
This is our second stay here and we’re again very happy. Only issue was when the kettle broke but it was replaced within an hour of reporting it. Definitely using Keswick Cottages again. (Less rain next time please)

Thank you so much for your 5 star review! We love that this is your second stay and we are happy that your issue with the kettle was rectified quickly. Thank you so much for saying you will be using our agency again, we cannot wait to welcome you on your next visit. Best Wishes, Keswick Cottages
