    “We brought our two small dogs who are very well behaved, but when one of them had cocked his leg against the garage wall by my son's car in the courtyard, the lady next door but one was very rude and said we should not allow the dogs out there at all as her grandchildren could catch something!”

    I did explain that this is highly unlikely, I am a qualified health professional and we also had a doctor in the house! ...

    I did explain that this is highly unlikely, I am a qualified health professional and we also had a doctor in the house! She said there were notices in the house saying we could not bring dogs out into the shared courtyard - however, these were not evident. We are very responsible dog owners and always clean up their poos, but this was them having a wee! We were only there for the weekend - it is a lovely cottage but this would deter me from returning. Also, as it is a shared courtyard, it might have been good to have some chairs to sit on outside in the summer months. The location is great, a short walk into town and cottage is lovely. The stairs to the attic room are very steep, but certainly manageable.

The property

A charming cottage near the River Greta in Keswick, and only a short walk to the centre of Keswick town. With stone flagged floors, beams and a traditional fireplace with an electric stove effect fire, this pretty cottage is a lovely and relaxing place for a family to spend a holiday. Stepping into the welcoming open plan living area, you?ll immediately feel relaxed with the comfortable furniture, fireplace with its electric stove effect fire, and the TV, Blue Ray DVD player, Xbox and selection of books, films and games.

Perfect for an afternoon in if the weather isn't at its best.

The dining area has wonderful beams and slate floors, and there's a breakfast bar in the fully-equipped kitchen. Moving to the first floor, you'll find the master double bedroom and a twin bedroom, both with incredible views of the fells.

The family bathroom with a shower over the bath is also on this floor.

On the second floor, there's a charming attic twin bedroom, with more wonderful views of the fells, though the staircase is very steep, and wouldn't suit the elderly or very small children. Outside the house, there's private parking to the rear and a shrubbery o the front. This cottage is perfectly placed to explore all Keswick has to offer and is within walking distance of the centre of town, close to pubs, shops and restaurants.

Keswick is full of different attractions and things to do, from golf and crazy golf at Hope Park to the Mining Museum, the Pencil Museum and the Puzzling Place. Travel further out and you could climb Cat Bells Fell, Skiddaw Mountain or Grisedale Pike, visit Castlerigg Stone Circle or take the Keswick Treasure Trails.

And you're near Derwentwater, for sailing, water sports, painting and trips to its different islands. For the perfect family holiday with plenty to see and do, Fountain Cottage makes for a comfortable and cosy base to explore Keswick and its surrounds.
