Details

A cosy traditional cobblestone cottage beside the River Greta about half a mile from Keswick town centre. The cottage is set back from the Penrith Road with off-street parking for one car. It is carefully maintained by the owners, who live nearby and are therefore able to deal with any problems that might arise.

The cottage comprises a living room and small kitchen on the ground floor. On the first floor there is a double bedroom and bathroom with lavatory, washbasin and bath with shower. On the next floor there is a small twin bedroom. At the back there is a patio area with table and chairs overlooking the river.

There are bus stops nearby and also a pub, which sells local real ale and meals, and a garage with a very useful Londis store. The nearest fell, Latrigg, is a few minutes walk away from where there are beautiful views over Derwentwater and the surrounding mountains.

    “Wet”

    The cottage needs a more modern can opener.
    Losing the stair carpet would make it a lot safer.
    There was no staff hence no rating.

    Can't disagree it was a wet week.

    We use that design of can opener at our home and have no problems with it. Will check to ensure that the one in the cottage is working properly.

    The stairs require carpeting to cut down the sound of people using the stairs. Can be noisy especially with kids rushing up & down..

    Whilst there are no staff the owners live within a few yards of the cottage and are available to sort out any problems that may arise.
