We have had a busy start to the new year, with lots of enquiries from old friends who have visited our cottages many times and new guests getting in touch with Keswick Holiday Homes for the first time. The summer months are already looking busy, but don’t worry, having our newer properties on board means that we can still accommodate you for your well earned break in beautiful Keswick.

We are particularly happy to introduce Felltops as our newest property. It is a wonderfully peaceful 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom elegant apartment in Elliott Park and boats spectacular views from all sides. We are sure that it will become a real favourite with our visitors as they get to know it and see the effort and lovely touches the new owners have put into its furnishings and fixtures. To celebrate it opening with us, we are offering a £50 discount on any February or March 2018 week booked. We will deduct £50 off the internet price at time of booking as a thank you and welcome.

We have also seen some improvement work going on over the winter period, Most notably with a brand new bathroom being installed in Lilac Cottage. It has a great new luxurious feel with a more powerful mains shower and improved lighting – we are sure that you will approve.

There are lots of activities planned for half term over the 2 weeks starting Saturday 10th February, from many different productions at Theatre By The Lake to showings of Paddington 2 at the Alhambra Cinema to the opportunity to learn archery at the Rheghed centre.
