Fantastic weekend in Fountain Cottage - Kitchen had everything we needed, lovely sitting room with ample chairs,tables, TV, games and brill Wifi connection. Only one Bathroom which is on the next floor but a lovely size with a fab shower then a very large double and twin bedroom and then the attic space holds another space with twin beds - stairs are quite steep so just take your time . Cottage has its own car space but is quite tight but it's fine and very handy use the back lane to the far left of the cottage as you look at it from the front and its then behind the large blue gate (not the lane closest to the cottage). The views from all rooms are beautiful , river greta is just outside the cottage as you start to walk into Keswick which is a nice 5-10 min walk, lake is then another 15 mins but longer as there is to much to see on the way...........
Can not wait to go back and just hope I can stay at Fountain Cottage.

“Nice house close to centre of town”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Nice house with three good sized bedrooms. Kitchen had everything you needed, would recommend you take a sharp knife though. Living room now have two sofas which were very comfortable. Heater in living room very effective, got cool at night due to stone floors throughout the ground floor which were lovely. There is no garden to speak of. There is a large yard at the back that you share with three other houses. Large enough for 4 of us to sit out, but took our own camping chairs. 100 yards away is access to River Greta where children could play in the water. Pebbly beach area as well. Parking is in the the back yard, requires a bit of reversing in relatively tight space, but do-able if you take your time. Great location for the town less than 5 minutes to the shops. Great for food - chip shop, Thai restaurant, Indian restaurant, 2 x Chinese restaurants, Italian and pizza all on the same street leading to the town with take aways available and The Pheasant Inn on Crossthwaite Road 5 minutes walk or less in the opposite direction of town. Didn't eat there but food looked really good and smelt fabulous. Will eat there next time I'm in Keswick! Also recommended after I'd returned was the Dog and Gun pub, famous for it's goulash. Another one for me to try.

Liked best: Location was brilliant with plenty of room in the house.
Liked least: Wi/fi good. Problem with the Wii not being set up correctly but children managed to get around it and Blu ray didn't work. Reported to letting agents so hopefully that will be fixed for next guests.
