    “Thanks so much for a lovely stay.”

    We loved the comfy living room: when the weather was horrid, we could look at the lovely view from the windows. There was only one issue, which we knew about from other reviews, which was the noise from the local tapas bar. It did stop at midnight, so if you are pre-warned, it isn't a problem. Lovely and central, and perfect for a family get together.

The property

Peak View, a stunning duplex property located in the heart of Keswick, was formerly the Royal Oak Hotel. Peak View is a fantastic option for families and friends wishing to escape routine and discover Cumbria's marvels because it is tucked away just a short stroll from a variety of attractions. A shared door provides access to the flat, with stairs leading to the first floor and an elevator leading to the second story. Discover the lounge where you may unwind on the sofa after a strenuous day of walking, watching TV, or plotting your next excursion. Take the conversation into the kitchen, which is equipped with everything you need for a short stay, including a washing machine so you can keep up with your laundry, an electric oven and gas stove, a microwave, a refrigerator, and a freezer. A beautiful dining room is ideal for hosting mealtimes and nighttime social gatherings. The master bedroom is located on this floor and features a double bed, built-in cupboards, views, and an en-suite shower room. Continue on to the third level, where you'll find a double and twin, both neutrally decorated and offering TVs but have little headroom. Before facing the day ahead, choose to wash up in the family bathroom, which offers a bath or shower. Walk through the town's centre to take in the sights while stopping for a meal or snack at one of the numerous nearby cafés, eateries, or Lakeland Inns. There are several wonderful attractions available in Keswick, including the Derwent Pencil Museum, the Puzzling Place, and the Keswick Museum. With so much natural beauty around, outdoor enthusiasts will be in their element. Wander around Derwentwater or Bassenthwaite Lake, where the summit of Skiddaw and Lake District Wildlife Park are only a short distance away. Go Ape is a great place for anyone looking for adventure, and the summits of Helvellyn, Catbells, and Blencathra are nearby. With a stay at Peak View, you can experience the finest of Cumbria.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
