Short stay at Byways
Perfect location, walking distance into Keswick town centre. Added bonus of a courtyard garden. We didn’t find the sofa’s very comfortable but apart from that small niggle, 10/10 property.
We’re Regulars
We’ve stayed at Byways every year for perhaps the last 10 years or so, so that tells you all you need to know as far as we are concerned. It’s a nice cosy little house, perfect for the two of us and our two dogs, but also enough room for a couple of extra people as well. It’s in a great location, just a short walk into the town, parking is usually easy enough on the street and the little patio area is great to sit out after a days walk on the fells. It’s furnished to a good standard, the kitchen is reasonably equipped, good bathroom, and the beds are comfortable. Ticks all our boxes.
Week away, for our 40th wedding anniversary. 2 adults with dog.
First time in Keswick and with Keswick cottages. Very impressed with both. One minor quibble is not being made aware of complete lack of any kitchen basics, ie salt and pepper. Don't mind that it is not provided, more than happy to bring my own, if made aware. The cottage was Immaculate and the location was perfect. An extra special thank you for the card and bottle of fizz for our wedding anniversary.

Thank you so much for your 5-star review of Byways! We are so happy you were very impressed with your first time staying in Keswick and with our agency. We do provide complimentary welcome packs and equip our kitchens with kitchen utensils. We are so glad you found the cottage immaculate and that the location being in central Keswick a perfect base for exploring. We hope you had a wonderful time celebrating your 40th wedding anniversary and enjoyed the fizz and card from us! We hope to welcome you back again! Best Wishes, Keswick Cottages

We have stayed at Byways several times so it really does feel like a home from home. This time we had a short break at the end of November so it was no surprise that it rained most of the time! However, we had come prepared with all our waterproof walking gear so enjoyed some good walks in fabulous scenery including Walla Crag, Buttermere and Whinlatter Forest. It was nice to have a cosy place to come back to. We also visited the Dog and Gun three times and enjoyed their goulash, as well as their lovely Loweswater Gold. Well, walking is thirsty work! Hope to visit Keswick again soon in better weather!
We had four dogs with us and the cottage accommodated them very well....its a five minute walk to the nearest park...the cottage had all the utensils etc in the kitchen you will ever need.....very comfy place and highly recommended
Lovely cosy cottage for a weekend or winter break. Small but all you need for a couple (& two dogs). Clean and comfortable very good location for town and dogs loved Fitz park.
