Gorgeous property, lovely location, fabulous owners.

  • 5 of 5

Had a brilliant weekend at Whitbeck House. The location is brilliant, just ten minutes walk into Keswick. We were fortunate enough to get lots of sun so spent a lot of time in the garden. The views were amazing!

The property is really well equipped with everything you could need, it was spotlessly clean and really comfortable. We had to call on Lorraine a couple of times and she was really helpful. We have stayed in many properties in the Lakes and Dales but this was by far the best!

Nice duplex on the edge of Keswick

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week in Whitbeck with another couple. Cottage was nicely furnished and clean and had great views out the back windows. It is located slightly outside downtown Keswick, but stores and pubs etc are within easy walking distance. It is also situated near the main highway, so you can get on the road without going through Keswick. The backyard has a grill and picnic table for when the weather is nice (it was for us!) and the cottage has 2 parking places off the street, which is a big plus. In our six days we visited Ambleside, Windermere, Bowness and Grasmere. Also saw Dove Cottage, Hill Top Farm and Muncaster Castle down south. Took one day to visit Hadrian's Wall and the nearby stone circles. Unfortunately the pencil museum in Keswick was still closed due to recent flooding.

We mostly self catered, but did get to the nearby pub The Pheasant for dinner, as well as the Morrel restaurant in Keswick. Both were excellent.

Only one caveat - we had a bit of trouble finding the cottage because Google maps was somewhat misleading. It located the cottage on the north side of High Hill Road, but it's on the opposite side. Look for the name Whitbeck carved into the low stone wall in front of the cottage.

Immaculate family house in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We have never stayed in Keswick in high season (school holidays) before and so the cost of this house was more than we'd paid before. However I am happy to say that it was worth every penny. It was actually no more expensive than the going rate for other accommodation but the standard was way above and beyond what we have experienced before.

All the furnishings and fittings were of the highest quality with the kitchen and living areas having everything you could possibly want, including a double oven, coffee pod machine and smart TV with the all-important wifi for the teenagers.

The back garden was big and fenced securely allowing dogs and small children to be safe, and the front garden gates also meant that area was secure. There was a set of garden toys (badminton / volleyball etc) too!

Plenty of hot water and the heating was great. The 2 bathrooms came in handy at times of peak demand too.

Last of all the location was excellent. The walk into the town centre was about 10 minutes, to the foot of Skiddaw / Latrigg about 15 mins. Also, it was easy to get straight onto the A66 to avoid queuing through the town centre traffic lights in the car on the way out for day trips.

The contact and communication with the property owner was quick, easy and friendly.

I really cannot recommend this home highly enough and will be telling my friends and family all about it! Thanks for a lovely stay.
