We stayed in Old Vicarage for three days and want to visit there again for three reasons. First, the location was excellent - the middle of Lake District. Second, the cottage has everything you need, including bikes and barbecue grills. Third, no cottage will be able to beat the price of Old Vicarage. The house deserves the strongest recommendation! The only issue we had was mobile signal. The wifi was working well so you can do what you want but you cannot call your friends and families.
This house was perfect for our large family party. It was in a great location near Keswick and was very clean and tidy.
We had easy access to the house and all its contents - it really felt like a home from home.
Amazing views, amazing place, amazing accomodation!
Thank you for an enjoyable stay :)
Amazing weekend stay. House was beautiful and in amazing grounds. Brilliant amenities and a great location for Keswick. Ideal for big groups. Would definitely recommend.
My family, friends, and I had a great time staying at the Old Vicarage. The property was very spacious, very clean, and very well situated. We had an amazing view of the surrounding area, the drive into Keswick Town Centre was less than 10 minutes, and the house itself had everything we could have possibly needed to ensure a pleasant stay. I would book again in a heartbeat!
We only spent 2 days at old viccarage but my family absolutely loved it! It's a very large, beautiful old country home in the most serene and peaceful countryside. The small town of Keswick was very close and quaint. The house was comfortable with plenty of beautiful bedrooms, each having their own full bath. I wish they supplied towels, that would be my only complaint. Traveling from the US, we were trying to pack as light as possible so bringing towels took up valuable suitcase space. Other than that, i would totally recommend this beautiful home.
Five bedrooms (plus annexe), five ensuite bathrooms (plus downstairs toilet and shower), huge lounge, dining room and the best equipped kitchen we have ever encountered (even a bread making machine) and a fab games room with a full sized table tennis table! The bedrooms and bathrooms are lovely and very spacious.
Large, enclosed garden with glorious views over Helvelyn and a resident (and rare) red squirrel, a garden made for a game of hide and seek, a garden made for sitting out in and watching the sun go down with a glass of wine in your hand and the sound of children laughing.
As you can tell from the above it is hard to fault this property. It is the kind of place where you feel comfortable immediately because its not too ostentatious. . Its close to Keswick and the shops but away from all the bustle, the drive south to Windermere etc is easy, pretty and quick, the location is perfect for exploring this beautiful region.
Definitely the best holiday home we have stayed in in the Lake District and I like to think that we will be back again soon.
We had a family "Get Together" and the location was perfect. We had beautiful views, lovely garden and plenty of parking space. The accommodation was spacious and well equipped. They have thought of everything. The bedrooms had plenty of room and ALL had their own En-suites. Very handy. The Games Room went down a treat and suited all age groups. A great location from any direction to go sightseeing, walking. We would definitely recommend this property. We are looking forward to our next visit.
