  • "The accommodation was wonderful, it was homely and comfortable with everything you might need."

    It's set in an idea location, surrounded by beautiful countryside and views of Catbells, but set close enough to Keswick for a spot of retail therapy. The owners care and consideration is truly welcomed, and we look forward to our next visit.

    Thank you for your lovely comments. Such positive feedback is much appreciated. We do try to make Tethera as comfortable and homely as possible. Sheila and Chris Property Owner

    The views from the patio and grounds are stunning. An excellent base for walking and again maps and walking books are all provided. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan to return.

    We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Tethera and found the maps and books useful. We do try to make it a home from home and hope you will join the ranks of our many returning visitors. Chris and Sheila, owners. Property Owner

  • "A very nice and well equipped apartment."

    I scored it 3 out of 4 for the accuracy of the listing only because it did not make clear the unsurfaced drive. In all other respects I would give top marks for this apartment.

    We are so disappointed that you were not informed about the drive. We have specifically requested that the agents make quests aware. We can only apologise that this was not made clear to you. However work is in progress to improve the drive and improve access. We are pleased that you enjoyed Tethera. It is very much our second home and we try to make it as comfortable and welcoming as possible. We hope you will return. Chris and Sheila. Owners. Property Owner

  • "A comfortable and well equipped ground floor apartment sitting to the LHS of the Grange, so its rather shaded and slightly limits enjoyment of the scenery from the windows."

    The drive is clearly a current issue, the other advice we would offer is this is the first cottage that we've stayed where there wasn't a few teabags/milk for a refreshing brew after a few hours drive, so do go prepared ! Inevitably the weather dictates the agenda but we had 2 or 3 super days and would not hesitate in returning to Tethera.

    Thank you for your feedback comments about Tethera . As Tethera sometimes has gaps between bookings we have concerns that consumables could become stale or past their best so we hope that guests will find the wine to be an acceptable alternative. We hope to welcome you back again in the future. Chris and Sheila Property Owner

  • "Everything was as described in the property details."

    Having stayed in various apartments at Fieldside Grange in the past, we are never disappointed. We look forward to the proposed improvements to the drive to make it perfect for our needs.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased that Tethera lived up to expectations. We hope the improvements to the drive will go ahead before too long. Sheila and Chris Property Owner

  • "A beautiful apartment."

    Well equipped, comfortable and very clean. A great position above Keswick with good views of the surrounding fells. Having driven to a few self catering cottages down farm tracks with pot holes before, we were not too worried about the driveway. However, it was far worse than we anticipated with long, deep ruts on one side. It would not be a problem for a 4x4 or a vehicle that has good clearance from the ground. But, for drivers of cars whose chassis sits low to the ground, it is a real challenge to avoid damage to the underside of the car. We did manage, but decided not to risk taking the car out all week. We’re keen walkers so this wasn’t too much of a hardship for us, but think other prospective renters should be made aware.

    Thank you for your comments about Tethera. We were aware that the drive had deteriorated during the bad weather and work to restore has begun. Knowing this we did request that the agents made you aware of the condition before your arrival and we apologise if this was not made clear. We are pleased that you were able to enjoy walking and hope you will revisit when access is easier. Chris and Sheila Property Owner

  • "Superb property."

    30 minutes (uphill !) walk from Booths Supermarket... Follow directions meticulously, the last two right turns are tricky, particularly in the dark. If possible, set sat-nav to the actual building (a hollow square or L at the end of a J-shaped drive).

    We are pleased that you appreciated the quality of Tethera. It is very much our second home and we try to make it as comfortable as possible. Thank you for your Sat Nav input which will supplement the directions given. We hope the position and view on arrival help compensate for any difficulties encountered.

  • "The apartment was excellent so cosy and peaceful we would have liked to have stayed longer."

    The only downside was the very rough drive which was more suited to four wheel drive vehicles than normal cars.

  • "Excellent location with easy access to the town and countryside."

    Everything needed was provided, from all the kitchen utensils to birdseed and vinyl gloves. The whole place exuded understated luxury. The bed was so comfortable and the shower was powerful. We enjoyed every aspect of our stay so it didn't matter that the Lake District weather caused us to stay in some days. This property is #1 on the list when we return.

  • "We had a lovely stay in Tethera - close enough to Keswick to walk via the Keswick2Threkeld rail path but away from the crowds in the height of summer."

    Lovely views from the patio and particularly from the main grounds. The accommodation is very nice with good quality furniture and kitchen/bathroom fittings. It feels like a second home rather than a holiday cottage business and so there's also useful things you'd have at home but not necessarily expect in a rental. Thank you so much for the Nespresso machine - I nearly brought our own so was delighted to see it! Slight negatives is the dehumidifier, the noise of which rather got on our nerves and ideally the trees would be cut back to let in more light. All in all though really enjoyed it, thank you.

    Thank you for your positive feedback and we are pleased that you spotted this is very much a second home for us. Unfortunately the trees are on the neighbouring estate and not under our control but we are aware and working on it. Pleased that you appreciated the Nespresso machine. Property Owner

  • "The apartment is absolutely gorgeous inside and outside."

    However, there are a few things to consider. 1) it’s not as close to facilities as advertised. It’s actually quite far away. It’s a good 20 min walk to a pub (low rated pub) and a shop at Shell, and on the way back this walk could be a good 30min since it’s up a steep hill. 2) to get to the property you have to a take a proper steep trail road which is quite dangerous and could result in tire puncture. 3) The appt is quite dark. 4) that was our first stay in the uk in rented accommodation where no tea / coffee was provided.

    We are sorry that this guest was disappointed however we have checked the description on the website and the distance of the property from local amenities is exactly as stated. That the property stands on a hillside is also made clear. Property Owner

    We had brought our ownwalk books but the walks from Keswick and Ambleside won out and we did completely new to us walks. Weather has been fairly good, not too hot for walking and mainly dry. We have had a lovely week and we will be back!

  • "Lovely apartment, perfect on the ground floor for my elderly father."

    Spotlessly clean and very comfortable - it all felt very new - and everything you could possibly need was there! Fab views over Cat Bells - can't think of anything negative apart from the driveway possibly which was 'interesting'! It was definitely worth the steep climb and bumps to reach the lovely car park with allocated spaces and amazing views - easy for unloading and parking and you did soon get used to tackling the access way. Thanks again.

    Thank you for your kind comments. We always enjoy our time at Tethera and are so pleased when guests feel the same way. Property Owner

  • "The location, facilities and generally everything about the accommodation was superb."

    We had a great week and are quite likely to return. The walk to town took about 20 minutes once we found the rail path short cut. The walk home was a little more challenging because it is mostly up hill. Directions were spot on, read them and turn your sat nav off when you reach the Keswick sign. Very comfortable property. Great base to explore the beauty of the Lakes. Enjoyed it very much

    Tethera is in a fabulous location and very comfortable and well equipped. We sat out in the evening with a drink to enjoy the view (although a little cold!) The walk up to Castlerigg Stone Circle is well worth it. We did some beautiful walks including Rydal Caves and water. Buttermere, Catbells and we managed Scafell Pike. We would recommend Honister Slate Mine. We braved the Via Ferrata Xtreme which was amazing, although quite scary!

Tethera is a fabulous, two-bedroom ground floor apartment in Fieldside Grange, a grand slate building, originally a farmhouse, which has been converted into apartments.

The house stands on a hillside above Keswick with panoramic views over majestic fells.

It is ideal for a family or two couples. Walk into the communal entrance hall where you will find your front door.

Store your outdoor gear in the handy utility room and find a beautiful open concept L-shaped room, which has been lovingly arranged into kitchen, dining and living areas to create a warm and sociable living space.

Walk over to admire your fully equipped kitchen with granite worktops and your delightful dining table , imaginatively placed near the patio doors, with views to Cat Bells and surrounding fells.

Then, relax for a while on your comfortable suite by the attractive electric fire and imagine lovely family evenings in this cosy space.

You will find two lovely bedrooms: a double bedroom with a king size bed, and a twin bedroom.

Both bedrooms are spacious and have attractive beamed ceilings.

Your large and beautifully presented bathroom has a bath with separate shower unit.

Walk through the door at the far end of the hall and explore your extensive shared grounds.

Take in the majestic scene all around you and anticipate exciting adventures in this truly beautiful part of the world. You will find a welcoming pub just a half mile away from your doorstep.
