  • "The property was location location location."

    Could not wish for anything better. The property was lovely and clean however I would like to mention as others have the furniture in the lounge was a bit uncomfortable. However this did not spoil our stay it was a lovely cottage. The parking was a real bonus. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend to others.

  • "Well situated cottage, covenient to town centre."

    Front of cottage a littlle drab, needs at little TLC. Large kitchen/ diner, which is well l equipped. A bit lacking in work surface and cupboard space. Couldn't open window without climbing on sink or lower blinds. No big problem though.. Large down stairs cloakroom, drying room and boot racks, very useful. Our biggest problem was the lounge, where we, as did other guests, find the furniture very uncomfortable, after a days walking.! We als found the large wooden dresser a bit of a waste of space and it was filled with the owners private mail. Could only get catch up on tv and I assume this is to save on licence fee.No problem with that, but some instructions would help. Bathroom was excellent. Main bedroom a little hot, but very nice, with a very comfortable bed. Not sure about having the bedside lamp next to the sink. All in all a nice cottage and would stay again, if lounge furniture were changed, as it is important part of walking holidays

  • "The cottage is beautiful in every way."

    Bit of trouble with hot water but I’m sure that will be resolved. I agree with other comments on comfort of lounge furniture and low stools in the kitchen but this would not put me off returning. It was exceptional and the owners should feel very proud of their establishment

    Thank you so kindly for your feedback. I am sorry you had a bit of trouble with the hot water, please be assured that this must have been an isolated incident, The stools in the kitchen have now been replaced with chairs and we have future plans to replace the sofa in the lounge.

  • "Discribed exactly on advert."

    Very well equipped. My only remark would be that the sofa and chairs could have been more comfortable. Thank you for letting us stay at your property..

  • "A lovely cottage right next to the centre of Keswick."

    Positioned opposite the Co-op and behind Booths so very handy for supplies. Access to the parking space at the rear is a bit tight but essential for Keswick, unless you want to pay in the car parks. We have a Quashqai and it fitted just right. On entering the cottage we were pleasantly surprised by the size of accommodation. The kitchen is a great size with everything you would need. The living room is really cosy and has a fab TV with Netflix, but the sofa was a bit small, it is not the sort you can lounge on after a long walk. A nice wide staircase leads upstairs, the master is positioned to the front of the property and is a great size with plenty of wardrobe space and a nice little dressing table. The bed was very comfy! The second bedroom fits a single, it is the quieter of the two rooms with it being at the back. There is also a useful rear porch/boot room and downstairs WC. There were plenty of towels, toilet rolls and cleaning products, the cottage was very clean, warm and cosy. We loved our stay at Holly Cottage and would definitely look to stay again. A couple of points to note; The garden is not enclosed. The Co-op receive deliveries quite early in the morning.

  • "Had a lovely stay at Holly cottage, very conveniently located, close to all that Keswick has to offer."

    Just a couple of niggles in the cottage, the upstairs loo didn't work which was a bit of a pain and the curtains in the main bedroom were very light and the light from the shop over the road lit up the bedroom all night, maybe could do with blackout curtains. Overall the cottage was clean, warm and everything that's needed for a long weekend in Keswick.

  • "The central heating was very efficient and kept the property nice and warm."

    The bed was very comfortable. The location is ideal close to the town and good walks. The maps provided were very useful. We had a problem with the flush button on the toilet and would advise that this is sorted out. We also think that the door lock on the bathroom needs fixing. There were 2 nice bedside lamps in the main bedroom but only one socket! This could be sorted with an extension lead. We would suggest a similiar arrangement for the sitting room. There is also a constant drip from underneath the central heating boiler. We enjoyed our time in the property and would definitely come again.

  • "Holly Cottage is very well situated near the center of Keswick and is clean and well kept, our only critical points are as follows:- Parking is very difficult and we had to make alternative arrangements Some proper chairs in the kitchen would be good as would a small TV in the kitchen as we like to watch the TV during dinner."

    The bedrooms and shower room and toilets were fine

The property

Sitting in the centre of Keswick, Cumbria is this excellent, mid-terrace cottage, Holly Cottage.

With easy access to the Lake District's attractions and stunning sights, Holly Cottage is the ideal dwelling for a family of three with a furry friend.

After soaking in your delightful surroundings in the heart of this picturesque town, make your way inside the abode to be welcomed by a charming sitting room; the space provides you with ample seating to unwind on as you watch your favourite Freeview show on the TV.

Continue through the property to find the pleasant kitchen/diner, where the chef of the group will be pleased with the selection of appliances available, including a countertop dishwasher and electric oven.

When the budding chef has rustled up a tasty meal, enjoy it at the dining table whilst your catch up on your lakefront activities.

Completing the ground floor is a handy cloakroom with a basin and WC; continue upstairs to find a fantastic bathroom, where you can relax your muscles in the bath with shower over.

As the day draws to a close, choose between two well-appointed bedrooms to rest in, with one being a single single containing storage for your belongings and a plush armchair, where you can enjoy a spot of reading; further along you can find a spacious double room that enjoys access to a handy basin and vanity, so you can get ready for the day ahead with ease.

The cottage rests in a prime location, with a supermarket situated across the road, and ample eateries lining the street; the town is also home to a great range of activities, with the Keswick Museum, Derwent Pencil Museum and the Puzzling Place just a stone's throw away from the property.

The outdoors lovers of the group can embark on a walk around Fitz Park or Crow Park, before wandering to Derwentwater where paddle boarding, sailing and the nearby waterfall of Lodore Falls await.

Why not spend the day out in Cockermouth, where you can wander through the Memorial Gardens, try your hand at putting at the Cockermouth Golf Club, or hike up the close-by Watch Hill.

Those seeking more nature-rich activities, can venture to Bassenthwaite Lake, where the peak of Skiddaw and Lake District Wildlife Park are just moments away, or venture to the enchanting Whinlatter Forest Park where ample cycling and walking await.

Treat yourself and your loved ones to a stay at Holly Cottage.
