An attractive, traditional, 19th-century, Lakeland stone cottage situated in a conservation area. Laid out over three floors, this small terraced cottage provides comfortable accommodation just three minutes from Keswick’s shops, pubs and cafés, and within easy walking distance from the lake. This well-equipped, recently upgraded cottage offers a cosy yet spacious open-plan living area, ideal for a couple or two friends seeking a quiet central location. The second floor bedroom is only available if two people prefer not to share a bedroom. There is also a useful small porch/utility room at the rear, and a shared garden with views to Walla Crag.

The owners of this property should be proud of what they have to offer as a holiday home. First class. Would definitely stay again.

Our second visit to The Retreat and would definitely book again. The cottage is superbly situated for Keswick and wonderful walks in the area. The cottage is immaculate. Beautifully presented, clean and comfortable with every possible need taken into account. Cannot recommend highly enough. Keswick is a lovely town with so many great pubs, bars and restaurants and easy access to fantastic walks and climbs. The bus service is ideal - we travelled around a fair bit to Ambleside, Windermere, Bowness and Buttermere and didn’t use the car once!
