About Craig Peart

We loved visiting the Lake District as a family and have spent many days climbing the local fells and visiting the local attractions over the years cementing my love for the area. So I jumped at the chance to look after and run Shelterstone (also Ferndale & Orchard House) not only to spend more time in the lakes but to let people enjoy visiting the Lakes.

Craig Peart purchased this bungalow in 1980

Why Craig Peart chose Keswick & North Lakes

Our family love the area, the north lake is a beautiful area with so much to do. Shelterstone is situated in Keswick which we love to visit.

The area is so easy to access from the house with a great choice of walks, Lakes and attractions on hand.

The house has a play roonm for the children so they can play and watch dvd's while you relax in the lounge.
