Beautiful, spacious & clean property in a great location. Interior is tired in places especially the kitchen which really needs upgrading. Youll need to bring your own dishcloth & washing up liquid as these are not provided!! There are also no mirrors in the 4 bedrooms which is so strange (and annoying). Fab location for walking into Keswick. HowevRead moreer, there is great cafe, a pub and also water sports just a short walk from the cottage. Great location & the house suited our needs well. Hide
