  • "Ideal spot to enjoy Keswick as it is in easy walking distance."

    A massive house, clean and light. Very airy. Some seating was a bit uncomfortable and poor outside furniture restricted the ability to enjoy the massive garden to the full. A Barbecue area would be useful. Lack a little garden maintenance with long grass and overgrown bushes and hedges. The dogs loved the garden space. Thought the small TV sitting room was a wasted space. Potential to have as another bedroom and sleep up to eight.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay - we try to be wildlife friendly with the hedges and thus they only get cut outside the nesting season so adopt the same practice as agriculture which is no hedgecutting/trimming from 1st March to 1st September. A BBQ area is on the to do list for the future - we hope to welcome you back again. Property Owner

  • "Lovely spacious property with a massive flat garden… the grandchildren loved it as it was perfect for outdoor games of football, cricket etc."

    and also very safe as fully fenced and hedges around so private too. The front very large gated area to the property is also perfect for parking with masses of room. Laal Field House is in a good position just outside the busy centre of Keswick ( so quieter) but a very short walk in… and the pencil museum is just across the road . Good proximity to excellent cafes and restaurants too and walks to Portinscale and beyond or the lakeside at Keswick. Some more outside seating on the patio would be great . The only problem for some would be the large mound of rubble next to the property but it’s not very visible in the garden or from the house. I hope the premier inn is built soon or the rubble removed as it doesn’t look good as you arrive…but instantly forgotten once inside it in the garden.

  • "This spacious detached property with an enclosed huge garden was absolutely perfect for the family and our 2 Springer spaniels."

    The location of the property was ideal. We have stayed in the lake district twice every year for about 7 years with my family and this property met all our needs.

  • "Ideal for a family of 5 plus two dogs."

    Spacious, well kept accommodation with a large secure garden. Great location near to centre of Keswick but fairly quiet and great views.

  • "The property is excellent, very clean and spacious."

    Well appointed to explore the different lakes and amenities. Granddaughters loved their spacious beds and bedroom. They enjoyed playing in the huge garden . The property is well located to the town centre which is only a short walk away.

The property

Laal Field House is a much loved family home that is just across the road from the former Cumberland Pencil Mill and the its famous pencil museum.

Step inside this larger than average detached house and you will find plenty of space for everyone to relax and enjoy their holiday. On the ground floor the comfortable sitting room is bright and spacious and this is complemented by a family dining room, with adjacent sun room and a well equipped kitchens.

Also on the ground floor are the choice of two welcoming bedrooms both overlooking the garden with views to the hills and benefiting from a ground floor shower room. Stairs lead to the first floor and the third bedroom with spectacular views to Skiddaw, one of the Lake District’s highest mountains and this bedroom benefits from an ensuite shower room. To the rear of the house there is a large lawned garden with picnic table and plenty of space for children to play.

To the front of the property there is private parking for three cars and the garage is available for the secure storage of mountain bikes and outdoor gear and the owners have also added a dog shower! Less than five minutes walk from Laal Field is Keswick’s market square with a great array of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.

Walk just a few minutes further and guests arrive at the shores of Derwentwater.

Walkers will be delighted by the great choice of walks from the town including high level walks to the mountain skylines or low level valley or lakeshore strolls.

Mountain bikers will be drawn to the mountain bike trails of the neighbouring Whinlatter Forest.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
