“Family friendly and perfect location”
Reviewed June 16, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We – that is my 3 children, their partners and 8 grandchildren, stayed in this lovely house in Keswick for 2 nights.

We found the accommodation perfect for us all, and we all fitted in without too much squash! The location of the house was even more
ideal as we didn’t need to use the cars all weekend. Easy walking (and safe) down to the lakeside and also Fitz park was very accessible
with a very suitable playground and cafe for all ages!

The only downside was the weather – rather cold for June, but the house was very cosy and warmed up beautifully!

Would definitely recommend a visit 5*!

“Cosy yet Spacious with Everything We Needed!”
Reviewed April 28, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Abernethy is a beautiful large house right in the centre of Keswick. The house is a great HQ for any walking get away. The house is spacious with two large communal areas to eat food or gather around the fire and watch a film.

The kitchen has everything you need (just take your own food) and all the bedroom have plenty of room for 12 guests. Abernethy is a far nicer house than the price may suggest. We will definitely be making plans to return next year.

This is our 3rd year of visiting Abernethy and once again everything was perfect. The house was spotless when we arrived and there was everything we needed for a large family gathering in Keswick. We have all said we will definatly be returning every year as the house is perfect for us all.

Just had a fantastic week in Keswick, Well positioned and very well kept property. The owners were very helpful and easy to deal with. Loved the lounge and plenty of space for all our toys ! bikes,skis,sledges etc. We would certainly stay here again ! Handy for shops and plenty of walks and rides right from the door no need for a car once your here just the way we like it.

“A really lovely house in a perfect location.”
Reviewed January 20, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Warm, clean, homely and spacious all in one! As a large group of ten with young children we all had a wonderful weekend at Abernethy. We enjoyed the easy walk to all of the local amenities including Fitz Park and King Kong indoor play centre for the children and a lovely cafe and pub in the heart of Keswick for the adults. It was lovely to return to the house after a fun filled day to sit by the real log fire and it was an added bonus that the dining table in the dining room was big enough for us all to sit around and enjoy a meal together. The 3 bathrooms all with their own showers were of a high standard too. We couldn't have asked for more and we can't wait to go and stay at Abernethy again soon.

“family friendly”
Reviewed January 19, 2015 for a stay in September 2014

A comfortable spacious house in which we all felt 'at home' immediately. A family dinner round the big dining table and a relax in the lounge before bed. The great location meant some of us could walk into Keswick town centre for a night cap in minutes.
Breakfast was cooked in the well equipped kitchen before a bike ride and swim in the lake. We will be back to take full advantage of this super property and area.

“All you could want for”
Reviewed January 5, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Excellent accomodation for a large party within easy walking distance of the town, park, lake and fells. The large dining table was great for extended family meals and playing cards, the kitchen facilities spot on with 2 sinks and a range cooker, a large comfortable lounge with great views, 3 shower/toilet rooms so we could all get ready and out quickly. Spot on!
