Keswick was very busy late in October - not something I had expected - but we managed to find a very spacious and comfortable house a few minutes drive from the centre of Town, up on a hill with commanding views of the magnificent countryside.
While the house has a lovely old-fashioned feel, the kitchen is modern and fully equipped with everything one needs. Comms were good with excellent wifi, and there was parking off-street. The area is very quiet indeed, and there was an outside entertainment area which would prove wonderful in sumer!
There were a few small issues, such as lightbulbs not working and no replacements, but the agent urged us to report all problems promptly, which we did on leaving, so no doubt everything would have been sorted by now.
The house has four bedrooms (or more?), but since there were only two of us, we were given full reign over only the bottom floor, with two en-suite bedrooms. The only suggestion I can humbly give to the owners of this excellent home is to add brighter lights to the second bathroom.
All in all, a lovely stay in a beautiful little town, (which is an excellent base to explore the Lake District).
Rock Lynn is a lovely bungalow, very well appointed and perfect for two couples as there are 2 spacious double rooms (one can be a twin) - both with ensuite facilities which allows for privacy. The lounge and kitchen are both spacious, comfortable and very well equipped with useful laundry facilities and freezer in a large utility room. Outside is a huge (but steep) garden,from which the views across Skiddaw and the surrounding hills are breath taking. For those not in the mind to climb, there is patio outside the kitchen with table and chairs for alfresco dining and another set under cover in case the weather is iffy. We had a couple of lovely warm evenings with friends dining out on the patio this year. Braithwaite is close to Keswick and central for many local walks. I would recommend this bungalow to anyone and will definitely be looking to book for the 4th time next year.
Warm, cosy and great walks and views, straight from the doorstep.
Two ensure bedrooms works well for two couples.
