Great location, less than 10 min walk into town. The trail to Walla Crag is also accessible on foot. The house is clean and spacious. The beds are very comfortable. The staff are very nice and helpful. We stored our luggage in the main house after check out and visited some more places before leaving the lake district. I would definitely recommend staying here.
The listing description was accurate, plenty of room for everyone and given we only used four of the bedrooms we all had our own bathrooms and showers.
We didn't meet Gillian because everything went smoothly thanks to the directions she privided before we arrived.
10 friends/family met up and stayed at the cottage for the weekend. Exactly what we wanted! Spacious, comfortable, clean, and 10 minutes from Keswick town centre! We are already planning another trip!
I am writing this review after an absolutely fantastic bank holiday weekend in the Lakes. The house was just as described in a great location about a 10 minute walk from Keswick centre and the tip of Derwent Water. The kitchen, lounge and small garden were great for catching up with friends, lots of seating and a nice big table. The staff at Castlerigg Manor Youth Centre were on hand to help us when required. Don't hesitate to book this place if you need a place to stay in the Lake District!
The house was comfortable and just as it appeared in the pictures. It had everything we needed and was a nice 10 minute walk into town.
Great location and perfect for our family trip with the Aussie side of the clan!
We were only there a few days and the weather wasn't the best - but the house was a great base and is in a fantastic location - maybe 10 minutes walk into Keswick.
It's well equipped but don't expect boutique hotel - its basic and clean - but it is homely - the open plan kitchen diner/lounge is great for family games - we had an impromptu ping-pong tournament on the massive table!
All in all its a bit of a gem....I hope its free next time we want to visit!
