Cosy house, great location, easy parking

  • 4 of 5

For customers with small children, like us, it would make a massive difference if this property had a dryer integrated with the washing machine, and a dishwasher. Whilst we really liked the property we wouldn't stay again for these two reasons of convenience.

Lovely stay in Keswick

  • 4 of 5

We had never been to the Lake District before. Keswick ended up being a great place to explore from. And we enjoyed this house as it was just the right distance from town--easy to walk to, but not bothered by the crowds!

We found the house neat and clean. The kitchen was well supplied with what is needed to cook and serve. Great bathroom with huge tub and great shower head. The beds were comfortable. The owner, Helen, was helpful and always available to answer questions.

You can take many walks right from the house (so nice to not have to get into the car). There are many hiking maps and books (we added 3 of ours to the collection) so there is no need to buy and bring any.

We really enjoyed our stay in this comfortable house!

A wonderful cottage with all the comforts required for a lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

Excellent communication from the owner prior to our holiday.

A very well located cottage with excellent parking. Only a 20minute walk to Keswick centre.

Very well maintained, comfortable & everything you could need for a week away.

We loved it & it will be our choice should we holiday in Keswick again.

home from home

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at The Hawthorns. There was everything you could possibly need and more. It felt like home from home. Loved the area, close to bus routes which we used every day. Some lovely places to eat in Keswick, we loved The Wainwright , the food was piping hot and good value as well as being homely. We can't wait to return again next year

Helen's house was wonderful. It felt like home. The house had everything needed, including a fully equipped kitchen and was nicely furnished. It was very clean. The garden was lovely to sit in and enjoy the summer evenings. Having a front yard in which to park a car was excellent. It is situated in a quiet location, a pleasant 20 minute walk to the centre of Keswick. Buses pass the front door. Countless walking opportunities are very close. A lovely stay and sad when the time came to leave.
