About the Owner

We love the Lake District and Keswick in particular. The stunning beauty of the area is very very special. We have visited many places in the world but the Lake District is somewhere we have wanted to return to time and time again. The scenery is stunning, we have enjoyed exploring various walks and have progressed in difficulty in our walks starting with Latrigg, then Walla Crag and then last weekend we walked up Catbells. The views were breathtaking and we had a fantastic day despite falling in a puddle on the way down! We bought this house in December 2013 and spent the next 3 months refurbishing it. We are really pleased with the result and so are the guests who have visited the house to date. We hope that you will visit and enjoy both the house and the area as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed a lovely week walking with friends the house is ideal for a holiday with friends and family in The Lake District. We will be back soon.

We enjoyed a week in the house with our children and grandchildren it was lovely for us all to be together in a lovely house in a perfect location. Many thanks, will be back next year ... if not before.

We met up with some friends we haven't seen for sometime and had a great time. We enjoyed cooking for ourselves and then eating and drinking! in the lovely dining room. We then played some of the board games available and had a great laugh. Think that this will become an annual event. The house was lovely and had everything to make this a realy memorable stay.

Great location but not a parking spot

  • 3 of 5

The location for this house is wonderful. It's in the center of Keswick and it's easy to walk to pubs, restaurants or a grocery store. The house is older which means both charm and all the typical old house problems. The stairs in particular were difficult for both my young sons and my elderly mother. The kitchen is newly renovated but nothing else is. I would like the owners to stop advertising this house as having a parking spot. So would their neighbors. I know because we talked. If you have to exit a medium size car through the trunk, the space is not big enough to be a spot. There is street parking and while it's pretty full we were able to get a spot on the street every time so it's manageable. Paying for the house was not a problem. I used the bank transfers and had no issue. Pick up and drop off of the key was very easy. I would recommend parking at the house and walking over to get the key since there is no parking by the office. Over all it was an adequate rental experience.

Owner's Response: The house is indeed in a wonderful location and we are pleased that this guest appreciated it. We refurbished the entire house just over four years ago. The house was built in the 1880s and is one of the early houses built right in the centre of Keswick. When we refurbished the house we deliberately tried to keep as many of the lovely original features as we possibly could, original slate floors in the dining room, wonderful original tiled hallway plus original fireplaces in the bedrooms and lounge. This is a very popular house with guests returning year on year. We constantly renew and replace things ,for example last year the beds in three of the bedrooms were replaced with new zip and link beds and all bedding has been renewed in the last six months. As this is a terraced house it does have some 'wedged' shaped treads where the staircase turns which is in keeping with this age of house. We have had many many families etc stay at the house and have no-one has ever reported these as being difficult before. You just need to keep to take a bit of care and keep to the outside of the stair and then the width is the same as all the other stairs. The car parking space is suitable for a small to medium sized car I know this because we use it regularly with our Vauxhall Astra! We also own the road at the rear of the house and give access to other houses adjacent via this road. Guests can unload in this space and then park the car. Fortunately there are often parking spaces available outside but the space is useful if when guests arrive there are no spaces available at that time. Sometimes guests can be somewhat ambitious and through great skill get a car into the space which is too small for their particular car.... Hence this guest having to get out of their boot.. 'Trunk'! Fortunately we have never had to exit our car in this space via our boot!!
