    Perfect for a couple with a dog. Boot room very useful. If you are tall, mind your head through the doorways ! Very cosy. Will return.

  • "The property location was the best and the accommodation was spot on , If I had to pick a fault it would be the heating in the bathroom was none existent and this time of the year it was very cold."

    But apart from that it was very nice.

    Thanks for your feedback. The lack of heating in the bathroom was due to the heated towel rail which needed bleeding. This has since been rectified. Glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise. Property Owner

    Loading & unloading of the car can be done outside and Parking permit included allows parking in the main car parks located within a few minutes walk, great communication from the owners on this. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Latch Cottage.

  • "Details of the cottage, and communication with the owners were very good."

    The cottage was easy to find and well-presented. It had most facilities required although no bread bin and no egg cups. The towel rail in the bathroom had electrical and water connections but was not on and there was no obvious way of switching it on. I moved the airer from the utility room on the lower ground floor to the bathroom to ensure that towels could be aired. On arrival, soon found that the plug hole in the bath was restricted and water was only going down very slowly. After consultation with the owner, I bought some chemical drain cleaner and left it in situ over night - this cured the problem. This problem should have been obvious to the previous occupier of the cottage, and presumably wasn't picked up during the cleaning of the cottage at changeover time. A few days later, I awoke to find no hot water. I contacted the owner again and he arranged for a plumber to fix the problem but this wasn't until the next morning. On my last day, I woke again up to find no hot water and the gas boiler displayed the same fault code. So out of seven mornings in the cottage, only had hot water on four of those. I would have thought that a service contract should be in place to fix such a problem rapidly and correctly.

Enjoying a prime position in the beautiful market town of Keswick, with striking views across the town and towards the surrounding fells, is this characterful property, Latch Cottage.

This one-bedroom cottage is an exceptional find for a couple seeking a romantic holiday filled with outdoor adventures in a place renowned for its majestic lakes, impressive fells and quaint villages and towns.

Every bit as charming from the outside as it is from the inside, Latch Cottage boasts a clever combination of style and character, with the exposed beams complementing the plush furnishings and mod cons in the open-plan living room.

Delight in relaxation as you light up the woodburning stove and kick back on the sofa with your partner, flicking through the channels of the TV as you unwind after an energetic ramble.

Step across the characterful, wooden floorboards to discover a compact, yet well-equipped kitchen catering to all your culinary needs, so you are sure to be able to cook up a storm here.

After making use of the quality appliances, settle down for a romantic meal for two at the dining table, perfectly positioned for watching the world go by or admiring the contemporary elegance that you can call home for a while.

During the balmy summer months, take your drinks outdoors to the shared garden to toast a wonderful holiday with your loved one, whilst underneath a beautiful canopy of stars.

Afterwards, head back indoors to find the bedroom, boasting a roomy king-size bed, a small storage space and a TV, which is perfect for lazy mornings.

Freshen up each morning in the bathroom; you can choose to enjoy a rejuvenating shower or run yourself a hot bath at the end of each day, a perfect way to recover after a long walk.

Look forward to exploring your surroundings further, as you take a leisurely stroll into the centre of Keswick, home to an award-winning market and a fantastic array of shops, ranging from craft bakeries, butchers, and supermarkets, so you can pick up last-minute essentials.

For the evenings, where you do not feel like cooking, be sure to sample the great range of eateries situated just a stone’s throw away from your doorstep, including a plethora of pubs, restaurants, bistros, cafés, and wine bars.

Those feeling active can relish in a challenging climb to the summit of Skiddaw – the 5th highest peak in the Lake District, or to one of the other surrounding fells, including Cat Bells, Coledale Horseshoe and Blencathra.

A more leisurely afternoon can be enjoyed on a Derwentwater cruise or catch a film at the quirky Theatre By The Lake on the shores of the lake, or you could head underground to explore the Honister Slate Mines.

Alternatively, brush up on the local history further by visiting Castlerigg Stone Circle and the charming Keswick Museum, or stop off at the National Trust owned Derwent Island House.

After enjoying all that there is on offer in Keswick, venture further afield to the delights of Ambleside and Bowness-on-Windermere, as well as Ullswater, home to the magnificent Aira Force Waterfall.
