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.

Reviews

Ridgeway, Keswick
We were very happy with the accommodation. It's location from the centre of Keswick was perfect for my dad, who is 93, and can't walk too far. At the top end of the road and only a few mins walk, there is access to Fitz park over the Greta river which is very pretty. The accommodation is quirky in its layout but comfortable, with great views of the hills from the living/dining room and very quiet at night. The kitchen is fabulous and very well stocked with all the utensils etc. you need. I definitely recommend this property.

Thank you so much for your review and recommendation of The Ridgeway! It is so pleasing to know you were very happy with your accommodation. We're also happy that you found it perfect location-wise for your Dad, being located in central Keswick means you aren't far away from the town amenities. The kitchen is very well equipped for a self catering holiday and the furnishings make it an unique layout for you to remember. Keswick has so much to offer you can either walk in Fitz Park, visit the shops, go to the Pencil museum or enjoy various walks in and around Keswick. We hope you had a wonderful time and we hope to welcome you back again! Best Wishes, Keswick Cottages

Great spot for getting to know Keswick
We had a lovely short break at The Ridgeway, helped by some beautiful weather. We found it an ideally positioned base for our stay, with shops, pubs, lake, buses all within an easy few minutes stroll, and more serious walks possible straight from the front door. We didn't use our car once during our 4 day stay! The property was great too. Very well equipped and comfortable once we got used to the interesting room layout and the slightly unexpected stairs, and a fabulous view from the sitting room bay window. If we had to find something to improve it would be the mattress on the main bed, but it wasn't a problem. Keswick Cottages were very straightforward to deal with, and in our limited contacts with them we found them helpful and friendly. We would happily book again, and indeed hope to do so soon!

Thank you so much for your review of The Ridgeway! We are so happy you enjoyed your short break and had beautiful weather. We're so glad you found this an ideally positioned base for your stay. We hope you enjoyed exploring the town and fells. We are so pleased you found the cottage comfortable and very well equipped and that you enjoyed the stunning views from the sitting room. Thank you so much for your kind comments about our customer service, we always want our guests to contact us with any query and we will happily answer this for them. We hope to welcome you back again! Best Wishes, Keswick Cottages

Easter in Ridgeway
Had a great 4 night stay in Ridgeway with the pup; great location, ideal access into the town centre. Ideal facilities for those with a dog, the back door to the property gives access directly to a spacious boot room, perfect for bringing in wet dogs. Will definitely rebook this property.

Thank you so much for your review of The Ridgeway! We're so happy you had a great time staying at The Ridgeway and you found the location great being in central Keswick. We're so pleased to know you found the back door to the boot room ideal for drying your wet dog and taking off those mucky boots. We hope you had a great time exploring Keswick and we can't wait to welcome you back when you book The Ridgeway again! Best Wishes, Keswick Cottages

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
Ideal location with parking The Apartment had everything you required Very clean and tidy Beautiful view Dog Friendly
