    “A lovely cottage in a fantastic location - opposite the park and 5 mins from the centre.”

    The cottage was warm, deceptively spacious and nicely decorated (we liked the historic maps of Greta Street), and there's a lovely little paved garden. There was good storage and the property was well maintained. The only negative was the floors could have been a little cleaner: although vacuumed, the rugs and carpet still showed that dogs had stayed before! But overall it was a great place to stay and we'd love to return. Thank you for a lovely week in this beautiful town.

The property

Nestled between the foothills of Skiddaw and the shores of Derwentwater, in the market town of Keswick, is this mid-terrace, period stone property, Primrose Cottage. Located within 5 minutes of Keswick Market Square and being just a short distance from River Greta and Fitz Park, Primrose Cottage is a perfect break for a family of four/couples or friends looking to escape to the Lake District. Internally, the cottage has been lovingly restored by its owners and has many original features. It is presented in a traditional style with a well-appointed and equipped kitchen/diner, featuring all the mod cons needed for a week away. The cosy and welcoming sitting room invites you to relax, with a gas fire and TV for spending down time in the evening. Head out the back door to access the enclosed paved courtyard, with mature shrubs and dining set for when you fancy breakfast outside. Head upstairs and discover the bedrooms, both featuring king sized beds, both neutrally presented with rustic features. There is also a convenient cloakroom with WC and basin Keswick's superb amenities are just a short walk away, including a range of excellent restaurants, charming tea rooms, quirky bars and independent and antique shops. There's plenty of attractions to box off; decide between the Pencil Museum, Keswick Museum and The Puzzling Place on rainy days, whilst the charming Fitz Park, Hope Park and Theatre By The Lake are all great choices for when the sun is out. Lace up those walking boots and join the scenic trails of Skiddaw, the K2T or Latrigg, or for those seeking a different challenge, hire a boat out on Derwentwater or scale the heights of Helvellyn! Perfectly placed for accessing the delights of Keswick and the surrounding lakes and mountains. A holiday at Primrose Cottage shall tick your boxes.
