The best holiday cottages for families in Keswick

Posted on 21st July 2014 by CE Team

Some of the best holiday cottages for families are in Keswick, Lake District.

Aside from fantastic, rustic yet luxurious cottages you and your family can stay in, Keswick itself is a beautiful market town that boasts stone-faced shops, brilliant pubs, restaurants, museums, parks and stunning walks and scenery around the towns edge.

And being so close to a number of lakes including the idyllic Derwentwater which plays host to numerous water and adventure activities which the entire family can enjoy, it’s easy to see why this small town in the Lake District is so popular with cottage holiday makers.

So here are some of the best holiday cottages for families in and around Keswick.

1. Rose Cottage

Rose Cottage is a stunningly beautiful cottage in the heart of Keswick which is the perfect homely base to launch a short break with the family.

With well decorated rooms, plenty of space for relaxing and an open fire to stave off the cold on those chillier country evenings, Rose Cottage has room for four and offers all the modern appliances for nights in.

The cottage is also just a stones throw away from the River Greta, a short ramble from the Keswick Museum & Art Gallery and is also close to Upper Fritz Park to burn off some steam or work up an appetite for a traditional pub lunch in one of Keswick’s many taverns, tea shops and restaurants.

2. Tommy’s Cottage
