Property code: SZ443
An imposing 19th-century holiday home, with modern accommodation to suit a large party, including one dog, in the middle of Keswick close to shops and restaurants.
Enjoy time away with your friends and family at this beautifully finished, traditional town house, within reach of the independent shops and eateries of Keswick. Up to eight guests and one delighted dog are welcome to stay at the four-bedroom property, which has an enclosed west-facing courtyard. Make the most of your central position to stock up on local provisions or dine out when you choose. Plan a 10-mile walk right around Derwentwater or hire electric bicycles and explore the area on two wheels. Book a seat on a lake cruise or hire your own motorboat. Have a go at windsurfing, canoeing or paddleboarding while you are here. Catch a film in the cinema or a play at the theatre.
Enter this striking Victorian house via a lobby with room for outerwear, and then the main reception hall. Spread out in the lounge/diner, with its period features, including its bay window and high ceiling. Make yourselves at home in here by lighting the wood burner and switching on the TV with Freeview or watching a DVD. Wander through to the dining area to play games at the table or enjoy holiday meals together. Find the airy kitchen next door, which is the perfect place to whip up these feasts. The kitchen comprises an electric cooker, gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, four-slice toaster and kettle. Head upstairs to find the family bathroom halfway up. This gorgeous room has an elegant bath and a WC. Follow the remaining stairs up to the first floor, where there is a twin bedroom, plus a king-size bedroom with en-suite shower room, also with WC. Two more bedrooms, both with dramatic views, can be found on the top floor of the house. These include a double room and a twin room. There is also a family shower room with a rainforest shower and WC up here.
Spill out into the enclosed, gravelled garden to soak up the sunshine in the afternoon and evening. Dine out here to enjoy the fresh Lake District air. A washing machine plus storage for bicycles and other outside gear is available in the garage. Parking is on the street and is unrestricted.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
Please note there is a refundable £100 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.
