This historic property dating back to 1698 provides the very best in high-quality self-catering in a setting of real character. Open the solid oak studded door and enter a spacious living room including large open fire and exposed oak beams and just soak up the atmosphere whilst enjoying the terrific views of the Skiddaw fells.
The fully-fitted kitchen includes integrated Neff oven and a dishwasher. The induction hob is faster than gas and totally safe, place your hand or any non-magnetic object on a working hob and it will not burn. The cottage is the only property in Keswick which still retains the rights to wash in the adjacent river, but no doubt you will prefer to use the integrated washing machine. The bathroom is a tour de force, bathe with a friend in a bath with two ends. This luxury whirlpool spa bath is sunken into a red Balmoral granite surround, the perfect way to relax after a day on the fells. Both bedrooms are spacious light and airy, enjoying fabulous views of the river and fells. Each has a 6ft king-size double bed or 2 singles if preferred. Savour the ambience and that olde world charm whilst being cosseted with modern luxury. A place where true romance lives.
Children welcome from any age.

There was no parking available outside the cottage, which was a bit inconvenient.
The location was great for the town, but on a main road which was okay for us but might bother some people.
There were no toilet rolls, cleaning cloths (for work tops) supplied for our stay, may have been an oversight?
Also it should be mentioned about the low beams (a problem for people over 5ft3).
No control over radiators in bathroom, very hot.
