“Ideal base in Keswick”

Fantastic little bungalow with everything you need to enjoy your holiday. The beds were very comfortable and the little extras including wifi and a dishwasher made our stay even better. The location is fantastic - short walk to Keswick, Fitz park virtually on the doorstep and if you're driving further afield the A5271 is less than a minute away. The plumbing made a few strange banging noises but everything worked fine. I would suggest taking a few extra towels with you as a hand towel and small bath towel is provided per person however if the weather is damp it's hard to get them dry (there is an airing rack provided).

“Ideal base for Keswick and the Lakes”
Reviewed August 3, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Ferndale is a comfortable bungalow, well equipped, warm and cosy to come back to after a day in the hills. Only lack is somewhere to hang wet, dirty outdoor clothes after a wet day in the hills! Also excellent base for Keswick Convention.

“Great garden space, comfortable accomodation, easy walk to Keswick town”
Reviewed May 31, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The bungalow had internet access (great for the kids) and free passes to the swimming pool for 4 people. The garden is big enough for the kids to run around and has 2 eating areas. Garage space available for bikes etc. Fully equipped for a family (except no washing machine) but there was a dishwasher!
Easy access for Keswick and the surrounding area, good off street parking, comfy beds.

“Comfort in Keswick”
Reviewed May 31, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We spent a delightful two weeks at Ferndale. The bungalow was spacious, comfortable and well situated for access to the town and in particular for the bus route of the 555.
The owner Craig and his family have been very helpful and prompt in solving a minor problem.
We can recommend this bungalow and we hope to be back.

“Roomy, warm, well equipped bungalow”
Reviewed April 11, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Great location about 10 minutes walk from centre of Keswick. Kitchen & bathroom fine for family of 3 or 4. Large lounge & 2 bedrooms. The twin is also large, the double is quite small. The bungalow is in a slightly raised location with garden surrounding and gets sun from early morning until late evening, so is always warm.

We'd definitely stay there again.

“Perfect location”
Reviewed April 6, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Lovely litttle bungalow in a perfect loaction - 10 minutes walk into Keswick centre.
Clean and warm and very comfy beds. Wonderful view of Latrigg and Skiddaw from kitchen window. Tea and coffee a welcome sight after a long drive.
Weather wasn't so good for us although still managed 2 fell walks, a walk around Buttermere and shopping in Keswick and a visit to the Puzzling Place - well worth a visit!
Fitz Park is great for kids as is the local pool (with waves and slide).
Lots of lovely places to eat all within walking distance and sooooo many outdoor gear shops! Would definitely stay here again.
