Keswick is overlooked by spectacular scenery including the towering Skiddaw and Lonscale Fell to the north and Derwentwater a stones throw away to the south, in the heart of the Northern Lakes.
The market town gained its original charter in 1276 and although small it now forms the hub of the Northern Lake District. Keswick has great character with its well tended appearance (Winning several national awards); two large parks close to the town centre, speciality, gift and outdoor shops and a range of outdoor and indoor attractions.
Close by is the 4000 year old Castlerigg Stone Circle and the shores of Derwentwater are a mere stroll away past the Theatre by the Lake. During the summer months visitors can enjoy a free minibus service run by the National Trust from Keswick linking into round trips to Buttermere.
Keswick is a great base for a holiday in the Lake District with plenty of facilities close at hand but in the midst of beautiful north Lakeland countryside.

It was even better than we had imagined
We loved the quirkiness of the property and the homely feel it had. The outside light needs to stay on a bit longer when coming back from the town in the dark. That is the only minor negative thing but thought might be worth mentioning. Thank you so much for a week of pure relaxation and indulgence in such a beautiful part of our country.
We thought the whole experience was fantastic,thank you.
