Just come back from a week at banks place! Brilliant place for exploring Keswick and surrounding areas! Cottage has everything you need for a comfy stay. The only down side is the noisy pub on the corner and the staff that are out there smoking and shouting! Also the alley way to the cottage was full of cigarette butts which is not nice to walk through especially as a non smoker! I found that this for me let it down. But I did have a lovely holiday

“We loved Banks Place!”
Reviewed February 26, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Just returned from a very relaxing 3 night break at Banks Place. This was a Christmas gift from my parents. The cottage was warm and cosy and we especially loved the Jacuzzi bath - just what we needed after a 6 mile walk! The log burning stove was also great as it heated the whole house. It was spotlessly clean throughout and also had a very useful understair storage with radiator where we could dry our walking clothes.
Overall a fantastic little cottage in a great spot, in the town centre but very peaceful. Will definately return and would recommend.

“Great cottage for a week away from work”

We were looking for somewhere pretty central, as we don't have a car. Banks Place was ideal; close to the lake and with plenty of pubs and coffee shops on the doorstep. The cottage was spotlessly clean with a lovely wood-burning stove and underfloor heating. Very neat cooking island with all necessary utensils and a really spectacular bathroom!

Would thoroughly recommend the cottage to anyone wanting peace, quiet and a comfortable base to explore the area.
