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.

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.

Very nice property in Keswick

  • 4 of 5

Ideal property for our short 3 day stay in the Lakes. Good size rooms for 3-4 people and well provided with everything you could want - including a bottle of wine on arrival - ta for that!. It is an easy 20 minute stroll into Keswick which builds a good hunger for eating and drinks in any of the many great pubs in the town centre - Wainwrights was our particular favourite. Would definitely stay here again - Really easy to get around for walking in many parts of the lakes from this well positioned accommodation

Fantastic House in a Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

The house was very comfortable, clean and very well equipped. It's 20mins walk from town which is perfect. A lovely touch having a bottle of wine to greet us when we arrived. The garage is perfect for storing bikes in. We really enjoyed our stay and will be visiting again later in the year.
