“Fabulous”
Reviewed 4 January 2012 for a stay in December 2011

Just stayed here to celebrate our 2nd Wedding Anniversary, and family came for New Year also, we came to Keswick for our Honeymoon, and often come camping during the summer months staying in Ullswater or Windermere.

Six adults and two children, not forgetting our Springer Spaniel who loved it.... she hasn't stopped sleeping since getting back, the only thing that was disappointig was the weather with rain, rain rain, alot different to our honeymoon in 2009 when it was thick with Snow.

Westies has everything to offer, digital TV, although my brother is a keen downloader, and had a memory stick with numerous films on for our evening entertainment, he even brought a smaller lcd tv for the kids to play the Wii on {which he brought with him also}. There are loads of books, dvds, games and reading materials to keep everyone entertained.

The kitchen is fabulous, with dishwasher, washer and dryer and as many kitchen appliances as you can fathem its like your own kitchen at home, we only ate out twice once at "17 Again" just two of us for our anniversary, if its a special occasion then this is lovely and "The Dog & Gun" and tried the Hungarian Goulash again from previous visits", this is a must, we cooked everything in the house from fry ups, to christmas dinner and new years day dinner, not forgetting a hot pot, using the slow cooker after the celebrations in the square on new years eve, we even used a rolling pin, which was provided!

My only negative point would be if they could have another double bedroom as we drew the short straw with having the twin room, and the way the room is set up, we couldn't put the beds together {door in the middle} and no matter how long the heating is on this room remains cold.

The bathrooms are fab in the en-suite and the main bathroom, the house is immaculate in every room the dining room is excellent with a georgous table, ideal for entertaining!

We all would consider staying here again, if we did I am opting for the double room!

We received a fabulous welcome pack and the wine was drank more or less on the first night, the kids loved their special wine too! We even got a towel and treats for the dog too!

We regretfully forgot our baby gate, so our dog slept outside in the outhouse, otherwise known as the drying room, otherwise she would have been on each chair or sofa in the house if we let her stay inside at night..

100% fab, so if you are considering booking then definately do so, it is at most 10 mins walk to the centre, with a spar right by the house which is reasonable.

A suggestion to the owner, would be a light in the back and a hose to hose pets down outside, and apologies for all the empty bottles, cans etc... we didnt know were the recycling bin was otherwise we would have taken them....
