About Catherine Edgar

4 Ridgemount is owned by Catherine and John Edgar who lived in Cumbria for over 30 years, although we have now moved to Worcestershire. We are ardent walkers and love the theatre.

Catherine Edgar purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Catherine Edgar chose Keswick & North Lakes

Keswick is an ideal base for our family holidays as it allows us such easy walking access to the the lakes and is also an outlet for the cultural aspects of Keswick such as the famous theatre, book and jazz festivals etc. There are plenty of activities for families with young or older children in the town and in the area. Keswick also has a good choice of pubs and restaurants

The apartment is very cosy with stunning views, this is why we fell for it.

What makes this apartment unique

The benefit above other properties is that it is near but not in the town centre and is therefore quiet with good views yet close to amenities. We have off road private parking at the back of the property. We are on a bus route and also right next to the old railway track which is now a cycling and walking route.

We do not increase our prices over the summer or at holiday times.

Guestbook comments from the manager

- "A fantastic place to come and stay. Brilliant with kids. Porch even big enough to dry out the pushchair. Great walks right from the door and round the lake. Play in Fitz Park has become a firm favourite."

- "Lovely apartment. The perfect place for a refreshing week in the Lake District."

- "Great week's holiday. Lovely flat. Splendid views."

Excellent property

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely, warm and cosy cottage, with beautiful views to the mountains. The place is extremely well-equipped, and the communication from the owners was excellent. The only downside was the traffic noise, but it was only noticeable when the road was wet, so not a major problem.

Great trip away

  • 4 of 5

Lovely couple of days away. Place was clean and welcoming, with a lovely card on our arrival. Well situated and the walk into Keswick was lovely too. We were there during a storm but felt safe and snug while we kept ourselves entertained. Everything there that you would need although took a while to get all the bedding on. Thank you for a great break away. We would definitely recommend stopping here.

Owner's Response: I am very glad you enjoyed your stay. I agree the top bunk is a little tricky to get the bottom sheet on. A fitted single sheet is the best for this. Happy new year! Catherine

Brilliant place for our little family :-D

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time in Keswick. Our stay was amazing. Flat was very good furnished, felt cosy and warm. Stunning mountain vews from leaving room. It's in a very quiet part of Keswick only 15 minutes walk to town centre along old railway tracks path. Swimming pool, park and playing ground 10 minutes walk, what for our active two year old daughter was perfect. Thank you very much Catherine and John. We'll be back ;-)

Conveniently located and very spacious

  • 4 of 5

Perfect flat for a family- nice and spacious. A great walk into town via the old railway path. So much nicer than on the roads. It would be so much easier if there was WiFi because our phone internet reception didn't work either (vodaphone) so we couldn't check maps/plan walks etc without going into town.
