Description

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 Smart TV, DVD, games console, and plenty of Lakeland guides, books and games.

The twin bedroom with solid oak furniture (chest of drawers, wardrobe and bedside tables) is also on the first floor with lovely views towards Latrigg. This room can be converted to a King-size bed upon request.

The 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 leather chair positioned in the bay window overlooking the patio/garden. There is a double bed, with plenty of storage, a flat screen TV/DVD, dressing table and lovely high ceilings. Both bedrooms are dressed with luxury linens and fresh white fluffy towels.

The very modern kitchen is also on the ground floor with fitted units, granite worktops, built in electric oven and gas hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, washing machine, DAB radio and breakfast bar, with well stocked cupboards with everything you would need on a self-catering holiday.

There is a sizeable utility room at the back of the apartment for walking gear and bikes, with a tumble dryer and providing a useful back door with rear access to the street.

The downstairs shower room has a shower, WC and wash hand basin.

Reviews

Ridgeway cottage
Lovely cottage in a fantastic location. We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Keswick and the location of the cottage and the views from the from room. The are some areas that could be improved. The heating did not always come on in the morning. Lots of signs saying not to touch it but we had to manually switch it on. The bed in the main bedroom really does need to be more luxurious. The mattress is not comfortable at all. Also the tv in bedroom is far too small. The second bedroom seemed a little dirty like it had not been cleaned. It had someone’s discarded fake eyelashes on the carpet which was a little unpleasant. (See behind bed side table) The facilities in the cottage are excellent with all the kitchen utensils and washing machine dryer and dishwasher. Overall a lovely cottage but with a couple of small improvements in comfort would be a 5 star.

Fabulous position, spotlessly clean property, amazing views from the lounge over to Catbells and Causey Pike Spent the week going out walking, and plenty of apres walk drinks at local pubs. Fab meal at The Pheasant, lamb Henry was particularly good. Didn’t need to get in the car at all!
This is the second time we have booked accommodation in Keswick through Keswick Cottages, and once again, their service has been spot on from start to finish. And The Ridgeway proved to suit us perfectly in every respect, exactly what we were looking for. Many thanks - we'll be back. Edward
