    “We had an excellent stay at Fran's Nest.”

    The location is perfectly central to Keswick, close to Fritz park if you have little ones, and waking up to the views from the master bedroom is truly incredible.

It has two comfortable sofas and an electric fireplace, so it's perfect for cosy nights in. Let the house chef wow you in the modern kitchen, which has a variety of integrated appliances, including an electric oven, induction hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and even a dishwasher, so there's no need to lift a finger when it comes to cleaning up! You won't need to bring your entire wardrobe because there is a utility room with a washer and dryer for your convenience.

As you prepare to sleep, head upstairs and drift off to sleep in one of the three bedrooms. The first floor has a twin bedroom as well as a delightful double bedroom and bathroom. If you keep going up to the second story, you'll find a feature king size galleried bedroom with spectacular commanding views of Keswick and the northwest fells, including Catbells and Robinson. There is a tiny patio outside where you can unwind with your favourite beverage and consider your vacation so far. Fran's Nest is close to all of Keswick's wonderful services and activities, including cafes, bars, quaint tearooms, and antique stores. Choose between the Pencil Museum, Keswick Museum, or The Puzzling Place on those days when it's pouring outside. For summer evenings, Hope Park and Theatre By The Lake are ideal venues. If you want to climb mountains like Skiddaw and Blencathra for their breathtaking views, don't forget to carry your walking shoes! There are several hiking, sailing, and watersports opportunities along Derwentwater, and the gorgeous Bassenthwaite Lake National Nature Reserve is nearby. In contrast, Ullswater is home to the Aira Force Waterfall and offers boat tours to lakeside settlements like Pooley Bridge and Glenridding.
