  • "Extremely well equipped and furnished cottage."

    Liked the location. Very warm and cosy for a week in winter.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. You certainly picked a very cold week to be up in the Lake District so delighted to hear that you were warm and cosy. I hope you managed to get some great walks in. Property Owner

  • "The only negative we had was that you could smell dog on the sofa, but I suppose there isn’t much you can do about that if owners don’t put a blanket to protect it."

    Everything else was great. Thank you.

    Thank you for your feedback. The owner will be able to see this and so can review your suggestions. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "Well thought out accommodation with nice touches."

    Having use of a garage was really helpful for us as we cycle. The garage door lock is somewhat tricky and I did think at one time we would have to leave our bikes with you!!! (Just kidding) Patio slabs like those next door would of course be lovely but we would like them at home too! Very central for all the lovely features of Keswick! We loved our stay!! Thank you.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are really pleased to hear that you had a lovely stay at Dovestones. We do have a table and set of chairs for guests to use. These are kept in the garage when not in use, there is a garage key on one of the sets of keys for guests. Hopefully next time you visit the weather will be as good and you will be able to enjoy some evenings outside. Property Owner

  • "A beautiful property and so tastefully, comprehelsively and thoughtfully decorated and equipped."

    However, I noticed a few issues, like the curtain rail in the single bedroom that only had 3 points of contact and fell down during our stay, and a couple of wall switches that were loosely screwed into the wall. I must say that the curtain rail was fixed as soon as I reported it, so good on the company for their response.

  • "A super presented, spacious and comfortable cottage in the perfect location for great walks and for wandering around the town of Keswick."

    Unless you want to explore the lakes further afield, you don't even need to use your car! The cottage was spotless, well decorated with great facilities. Will definitely be back :o)

    Thank you for your kind feedback. We are pleased that you found the property to be spotless. We hope to welcome you again. The Lakes Cottage Holidays Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "Absolutely stunning property."

    We couldn’t work out how to turn the heating up (it was a snowy weekend) and the owner responded immediately by turning it up remotely! Great property 5 minutes walk from the centre of Keswick. Very comfortable - will be booking again! Thank you.

  • "Absolutely lovely cottage within walking distance of Keswick."

    Clean, comfortable and spacious, with a well equipped kitchen. Some of the most comfortable beds we’ve ever slept in. Shower may be a little low for those of the taller variety. Wouldn’t recommend if you wanted outdoor space as the yard is not really the best to sit out in, however there is plenty of green space just outside the front door. Would definitely return.

  • "Fabulous cottage!"

    ! It was immaculate and welcoming when we arrived, very spacious so as a family of 4 we had plenty of room. Some feedback would be to try and put some plastic cups and plates/bowls in the cottage for young children to use. Also it would have been nice if there were a few more books on the shelf and a few more board games in the cupboard.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, we're really pleased to hear that you had a great stay :-) Thanks for the feedback as well, we will be adding more board games shortly and also some plastic beakers / plates & bowls as you suggest. Property Owner

  • "Ideally, it would have a second toilet or en-suite."

    Otherwise, the property was beautifully decorated, there was lots of cupboard space and it was really comfortable. The house is a short walk from town which meant that it was really quiet.

  • "Dovestones is a beautiful, spacious, well equipped mid terraced holiday home with luxurious touches throughout."

    The house is immaculate. Great care and thoughtfulness has clearly gone into its presentation and facilities. The beds are luxuriously comfy and the supplied towels are spa like! The kitchen is the best equipped we have stayed in and the lounge is cosy and comfortable to relax in at the end of the day. The neighbourhood is quiet and location convenient for Keswick’s centre, lake side and the local Fitz Park. We had an altogether wonderful week and hope to be back at Dovestones soon!

The property

Nestled at the heart of the bustling market town Keswick in Cumbria is 51 Dovestones.

This beautifully-presented Victorian terrace house has views of the breath-taking Skiddaw Mountain, a private rear yard with furniture, lockable bike storage, and dog shower, and welcomes up to five guests in three bedrooms, making it an idyllic setting for families looking to experience the outdoors in the Lake District National Park.

After a fun-filled day, enter into your home-away-from-home where a contemporary, cut out, wooden wall allows the living/dining room to remain bright and airy, settle down here on the plush sofa while the Smart TV plays and woodburning stove crackles in the background.

Later, travel into the fully-equipped kitchen to rustle up a hearty meal that the whole family can enjoy at the dining table; tuck in and swap stories about your trip.

When the evening draws to a close, climb the stairs, where two bedrooms both with a king-size bed and one bedroom with a single bed await; all furnished with ample storage for your belongings and serviced by a sleek bathroom.

Be sure to get some well-earned rest before another fun-filled day in the Lake District National Park.

51 Wordsworth Street is located just a stone’s throw away from the heart of Keswick which is the perfect place to explore the great outdoors, with plenty of walks and hikes to suit all abilities.

There are a number great walks you can do from the door.

You can also enjoy some of the local attractions, such as Derwent Pencil Museum, Keswick Museum, Keswick Climbing Wall and Ashness Bridge.

In the evening, head to one of the town's many restaurants and bars, such as Merienda or The Farmers Arms, for a delicious meal and a glass of the local Lakeland beer.

Or venture further afield to find Ambleside, a charming market town home to a number of attractions, including the beautiful Wray Castle, the impressive Stock Ghyll Force and the mysterious Rydal Cave.

Ambleside is also home to a Roman Fort, which offers visitors a glimpse into the town's fascinating past.

The towns of Cockermouth, Windermere and Bowness are also a scenic drive from the property and offer a myriad of activities for the whole family.

Choose 51 Wordsworth Street as your base for your next exploration of Keswick and the Lake District.
