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 Ferndale (also Shelterstone and 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 Copeland District
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.

Twin room spacious, double room smaller but both equipped with everything you need.
Would be happy to stay there again if I visited Keswick again.
Great location & had everything we needed
Had a lovely 3 night break. The bungalow is conveniently located near Keswick town, an easy walk to shops/eateries.
Good facilities in the property, very kind welcoming items, biscuits were tasty.
It took a while for the bungalow to get warm due to the snowy weather and it had probably been empty for quite a time. We were lucky to get there in the blizzard conditions! Worth our while as the views of stunning snowy mountains & lakes were stunning.
Would return again. Thank you
Spacious & tidy and only 5 mins walk from the town centre
This was the first time we have stayed in Keswick, we found this place to be reasonably priced for the location. We stayed with our 2 kids (4 & 1) and there was plenty of room for them. We had to manage without a high chair for mealtimes as the one provided was covered in mould but apart from that the place was clean & tidy and would definitely recommend it.
Quiet location and the best mattress i have ever slept on! The Bungalow was only a short walk into town and had everything you may need supplied and the owners were very thoughtful by ensuring we had fresh milk, tea and coffee on arrival and the biscuits were lovely too!
17th Jun 2017 Very comfortable holiday bungalow in Keswick
Excellent week here in very comfortable bungalow ideal for all our walking plans. Walked from the door to Latrigg , down to Derwentwater to go on boat across to Catbells & then further exploration of different places on the lake - its in an ideal location. Down to Dodd wood to the osprey viewing site & lots of walks there too. Keswick has numerous eating places & we were able to walk to the centre in 10 minutes for an evening meal. All in all a perfect base for us.

Explore the National Nature Reserve on Walney Island or visit the picturesque Duddon Valley, where the heather clad moors peppered with birch trees inspired many of Wordsworths poems.
