    “The house was good for our family.”

    2 parents and 2 adult children and partners.

    2 parents and 2 adult children and partners. The kitchen was really well equipped, albeit too small to seat 6 people at the table. We'd stay here again.

About the property

Offering basic yet comfortable accommodation right in the heart of bustling Keswick, Pelham House is the ideal location for lover's of the Lake District. This end of terrace Victorian villa, laid out over three storeys, offers dog friendly and comfortable accommodation.

Pelham House is the ideal base for a family and friends who want to spend their time exploring everything the area has to offer, whatever the time of year. In through the large entrance porch - the ideal place for wet and muddy outdoor gear - and you enter the cosy living room with plenty of seating and an open fire, just right for thawing out on a chilly day.

The dining kitchen is well equipped and there's a ground floor shower room with wash basin and WC.

On the first floor there are two bedrooms, one double and one twin room, both with wash basins, and then a steep staircase leads to the third twin bedroom; on this floor there is a bathroom with wash basin and a separate WC with wash basin.

Although there's no garden at Pelham House, there's secure storage for your bikes and outdoor gear and on-street parking for your cars.

But with Derwentwater and the centre of this attractive Lakeside town both within a few minutes walk, there are plenty of places to relax with a local ale at the end of a busy day exploring the Lakes. Keswick is a lively Lakeland town with a host of visitor attractions from the Puzzling Place to the King Kong indoor climbing centre.

The Theatre by the Lake is a lovely way to spend a cultured evening while a trip on the Keswick launch is a must do for all the family.

There are also shops, museums, parks, pubs and restaurants making this a fantastic base for a family holiday. There's plenty to do whatever direction you head in from Keswick.

Go north and you're in historic Carlisle with its castle and cathedral, just a stone's throw from Hadrian's Wall.

To the west are the quieter lakes like Bassenthwaite and Buttermere plus the stunning Cumbrian coast.

To the east lies vibrant Penrith with its soft play area, shops, bars, cinema and swimming pool.

Or head south over the scenic Kirkstone Pass to Ambleside and Windermere to explore Beatrix Potter country. With so much to see and do, including walking and cycling in the majestic fells around Keswick, Pelham House is an affordable choice for a family holiday in Lakeland at any time of year.
