    “We have just returned from a week at Fox's Den, Keswick.”

    The apartment is in central Keswick and so is ideal for all the many amenities the town has to offer. The apartment is very clean and well furnished. It has everything you need for a good stay. Appliances and heating are easy to use with clear instructions. Parking space is a bonus. The main entrance is not as beautiful as the apartment itself, but it is secure.

    The apartment is in central Keswick and so is ideal for all the many amenities the town has to offer. The apartment is very clean and well furnished. It has everything you need for a good stay. Appliances and heating are easy to use with clear instructions. Parking space is a bonus. The main entrance is not as beautiful as the apartment itself, but it is secure. There are also clear instructions what to do at the end of the break relating to Covid. It is clear that cleanliness is a high priority at this location. If you are considering booking a stay in Keswick, and plan on using the local pubs and restaurants, I would highly recommend you reconsider booking this town currently. Keswick used to have fantastic pubs, but now the pubs are restaurants that happen to serve beer, because of the Covid regulations. Many use a pre-booking system that have a two to three night delay. Some are on first come first served, but the queues are long. Most are just booked up all night. If you just require a few drinks, horror upon horror - just second class citizens. You are not allowed to drink inside but shown to a back yard or overfull beer garden. Not very pleasant with the rain we had during our stay. We tried twice but just stayed in at night. The town is too full currently and is not ready for the visitor numbers it had pre-Covid. We will book Keswick again, but not until Covid virus is beaten and things get back to normal. When we do book we will certainly try to book Fox's Den first.

The property

In the centre of the market town of Keswick, the delightfully named Fox's Den is a first-floor apartment, that's part of a new cottage build providing all the modern touches required for a great stay.

A communal entrance leads you to this modern apartment, Fox's Den sleeps up to 4 people and is ideal for families and couples looking for a getaway and the chance to explore this fantastic town and its surrounding areas.

Within the apartment, you will find a fully equipped kitchen in which meals can be prepared and enjoyed at the dining table, before finishing and relaxing in front of the TV in the comfortable lounge/diner area.

The apartment features two bedrooms, one of which is a master bedroom with an outstanding spotlit wardrobe and a king-size bed, plus its own remote-controlled TV built into the bed.

The other is a twin bedroom, beautifully panelled with oak floorboards.

A shower room with WC and basin is also included for guests to refresh after a long day.

Outside there is private parking for one car and the apartment provides views onto the delightful hustle and bustle of the street below.

Just a short walk across the road will take you to the restaurant.

Set in the heart of Keswick, just a short walk will take you to what this central Lake District town has to offer, including pubs with homecooked meals, fires and real ales, restaurants, shops, museums and even more just a few steps away.

Keswick is famed for its outstanding natural beauty, and there are a variety of walking tours available and short drives will take you to the top of Skiddaw Mountain or the beautiful Derwentwater Lake.

Further afield, Keswick is just 14 miles from Cockermouth, which is home to the beautiful National Trust property of Wordsworth House and Garden where visitors will have the chance to learn about the famed poet and experience life in the 18th century, as well as visit the Jennings Brewery.

In the other direction are the towns of Grasmere, Ambleside and Windermere, making this a great base from which to explore the Lakes.

Fox’s Den is the perfect spot for a couple looking for that romantic getaway or a family looking to explore the natural beauty of the landscape around them.
