My husband boarded at Keswick School and he has always loved this part of the lakes so much we have bought the house we wish to retire to. We love the seasons there and enjoy everything it has to offer all year round especially the walking, mountain biking, sailing and, most importantly, the Jennings beer and extremely good cake!
