About the local area

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.

N O'Reilly -

Extremely well situated for Keswick. The parking was not as much of an issue as we thought. We had a fantastic weekend catching up before christmas with friends.

The property itself was simply amazing and I would recommend it to any large parties visiting Keswick and the surrounding area. The pool table was an added bonus which was particularly popular for the younger members of the group who spent many an hour at the table. Can't fault the property, everything we wanted and more.
