    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.

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.
