  • "The location is great."

    It is easy to walk to Keswick town centre. The house is tidy and comfy. While the facilities and appliances are fully functional, some of them (e.g. TV, microwave) are a bit old.

    It’s great to read you enjoyed the comfort and handiness of Oaklea. The 50” smart TV was installed brand new in June this year when our holiday let was opened. We’ve taken your feedback on board and will look to replace the microwave which is not new, but is reliable Property Owner

  • "Excellent accommodation in a great location close to Keswick centre."

    Only minor thing we wanted to mention was the toilet seat in the en suite was wobbly when we arrived and came off about half way through our stay. Otherwise everything was perfect and we stripped all the beds before leaving to make life easier for the cleaner.

    Thanks for your great feedback, we’re pleased you loved your stay at Oaklea. Apologies re the toilet seat, it was noticed on your departure and fixed the same day. Property Owner

  • "Comfortable, airy and clean property in a good location just 10 minutes walk to the centre of Keswick and a good base for the many hill walks around the town."

    The ensuite is rather confined but you get used to it. You can see Skiddaw from the the house which enthused us to bag the summit on the last day of the holiday.

    Thanks for your nice review. It’s good to read you enjoyed Oaklea and it inspired you to conquer Skiddaw! There’s lots more fells to summit on your next stay with us! Property Owner

The property

Situated in the bustling Cumbrian town of Keswick, a historic settlement located at the heart of the Lake District National Park, rests the delightful, three-bedroom holiday home of Oaklea.

With private driveway parking for two cars, a collection of well-appointed living areas, and a superb position near amenities and Derwentwater, this charming property welcomes a family of five or a group of friends, for an exciting escape within one of England's most beautiful landscapes.

Step into your wonderful new dwelling and make yourself at home by getting to work in the fully-equipped kitchen, featuring every appliance required to cook up a tasty, home-cooked dinner.

Savour your meals at the dining table in the conservatory, or even alfresco in the garden on the outdoor tables and chairs when the sun is shining.

The garage is an excellent, space for bikes and paddleboard storage or to hang wet clothes or wetsuits after adventuring around the Lake District.

When it's time to relax, unwind by kicking back in the sitting room, where you and your loved ones can stick a film on the Smart TV. When sleep calls, rejuvenate with a shower or bath before you tuck yourself in for a well-earned sleep in one of the three, plush bedrooms, including a king-size with its very own en-suite shower.

If you can tear yourself from your new lodgings, head out on foot to explore what Keswick has to offer.

A short walk will bring you to the peaceful stream of the River Greta, an idyllic spot for a tranquil stroll in nature. Follow the river east where you'll eventually find the SPAR Derwent, selling all the homely essentials you may need, along with the Twa Dogs Inn, which serves up hearty, traditional pub fare for when you and your loved ones are feeling hungry. For a full day out, make the most of the plethora of attractions that can be found in the town centre, including the exhibitions of the Puzzling Place, the quirky Derwent Pencil Museum, the scenic grounds of Hope Park, or even catch a performance at the Theatre By The Lake if you fancy some evening entertainment. Make your next trip to the Lake District unforgettable with a stay at Oaklea.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
