About Jill

We love the Lake District and Keswick in particular. The stunning beauty of the area is very very special. We have visited many places in the world but the Lake District is somewhere we have wanted to return to time and time again. The scenery is stunning, we have enjoyed exploring various walks and have progressed in difficulty in our walks starting with Latrigg, then Walla Crag and then last weekend we walked up Catbells. The views were breathtaking and we had a fantastic day despite falling in a puddle on the way down! We bought this house in December 2013 and spent the next 3 months refurbishing it. We are really pleased with the result and so are the guests who have visited the house to date. We hope that you will visit and enjoy both the house and the area as much as we do.

The house is in a very central part of Keswick. a few minutes walk to the Town Centre, Lake and local parks.

The outdoor area has an eating area with lovely views of Latrigg.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed the week we spent here at New Year. The house was lovely and we were able to visit many local places without worrying about parking on our return. New Years Eve in Keswick was BRILLIANT. We will definitely be back.

We visited this house with another couple for a short break. We had a lovely time. The house was very comfortable and well equipped and we enjoyed both nights in relaxing and visits to local pubs and restaurants. We were spoilt for choice! We will be returning and recommending this house to our friends.

We regularly visit Keswick to enjoy the lovely walks. The house was perfect for us. We could park our groups two cars right outside, with room to spare! Everything is a short stroll away and the house is equipped and furnished to a high standard. We intend to make this house our regular choice.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Great location, parking, and a stones throw from Keswick town. What more can you ask for.

Friendly and helpful owner too.

Highly recommended, especially if you plan on walking the fells and need a good base in the greatest town in all of Lakeland.

Thanks Jill we hope to return soon.

Central location for Keswick with off-road parking

  • 3 of 5

Positive:

Clean, nice firm beds.

Small for four adults but adequate. Appreciated dish washer and shower worked fine.

Negative:

First night got soaked, could not work central heating to dry out.

Very noisy bathroom floor!

Why was rubbish outside front door? (old carpet)

Small garden overgrown with weeds. First impression on arrival not good.

Owner's Response: I am very surprised that the guests could not work the central heating. All they needed to do was turn the thermostat up!!!! I always give my mobile phone number so that if guests have questions they can reach me very quickly!! A quick phone call would have sorted this out! I did not receive one direct communication from this guest. It is always nice to exchange messages and get to know each other. I have never heard any comments about any noise from the bathroom floor! We have stayed in this house endless times both on our own and with friends and have never had any problem re space for four people or with noise from the floor!! There is a bin shed outside the back door and someone had put small piece of carpet in it! It was removed two weeks ago when we discovered it. With all the sun and rain the very small flower bed can get weeds in it. This is a very popular house and people come back time and time again and most give very very positive feedback. We do our best to make this a great place for guests to stay and for most people it certainly is!

Close to town centre

  • 4 of 5

Very neat and tidy. The fan didn't work in the bathroom and the floor was creaking a lot also when walked on but I reported this, apart from that very comfortable and very close to town and park. Enjoyed our stay.

The perfect location for exploring Keswick

  • 4 of 5

An excellent location for exploring beautiful Keswick. The house was comfortable, clean and perfect for a family of 4 with a dog. Off street parking is a real bonus.
