Very lovely cottage, excellent location, descent size rooms & VERY WELL equipped kitchen. Best choice for group of 11-12 people. Best thing about this place is there are around 7 bathrooms, big dinning room, 2 reception room with games and good collection of DVD's and books. Though you might feel place bit cramped but it hardly matters, as you are... More

We had visitors from Australia and The Anchorage was ideal for our group, we were self catering and the place was well stocked with cutlery and kitchen equipment. The location to the town centre couldn't have been better, would certainly book again, thank you

The rooms we had were very clean and offered all you'd want for a couple of nights away including a library of books and DVD's to watch. With Keswick... More

We hired out the entire building and were self catered and had an excellent Christmas. The rooms were all very clean and a good size, plus it was nice that we all had our own... More

A lovely guest house in a great location. Close to shops, restaurants, etc, yet still nice & quiet. The room was bright & and airy. It had everything we needed & was comfortable. Breakfast was very nice & best of all, was our very friendly host Linda. Many thanks for an enjoyable stay! Steve & Tina.
