Elmcot is one of the best self catering holiday houses we have stayed in, and we tend to be quite fussy! It was exceptionally clean with no trace of any previous canine residents. The beds were lovely and comfy and the shower in the ensuite was fantastic. The position of the house is great, only taking us 10 minutes to walk into the centre of Keswick with our 3 year old and an elderly dog

A lovely house with everything you would need and very convenient for the town. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would stay again but unfortunately it seems to be completely booked up throughout this year.


Great location, comfortable and warm.


The best accommodation we have ever stayed in

In the area

Elmcot Cottage sits peacefully in quiet location to the north of the River Greta and not far from the popular Cumberland Pencil Museum, but is still only a short walk from the centre of Keswick. Local produce shops, tea rooms and restaurants offer plenty of entertainment in the heart of Keswick and Elmcot Cottage is also not far from the popular and cosy 17th century Pheasant Inn.

Keswick is in the heart of the Northern Lakes and perfect for dog walkers, hikers, cyclists and outdoor adventurers to enjoy the beauty of the surrounding area. North of the town you’ll find the highest peak in the area, Skiddaw, and to the south is Derwentwater where you can enjoy a popular lake cruise.

Enjoy the great outdoors on foot or by bike with literally hundreds of fantastic walks and cycle paths to try. Enjoy the challenge of the peaks such as Blencathra or Lonscale Fell or take it a little easier on the gentle Walla Crag, which offers great views back over Keswick. Both road cyclists and mountain bikers can take to the saddle and enjoy fantastic panoramic vistas of the Northern Lakes.
