Cosy Victorian townhouse ideal for families and groups

Lakefront Holiday home with kitchen and fireplace
Abernethy is a beautifully restored Victorian town house, sleeping up to 12, right in the heart of the famous Lake District town of Keswick.

The traditional slate built town house is restored to a high specification with natural wooden floors, an open fire, retained period features, central heating throughout, instant hot water, Wifi, TV, DVD, fabulous dining table for group meals, spacious lounge with mountain views and a well equipped kitchen.

With a lockable outhouse, utility and warm under-stair cupboard there is ample space for storing kit whether it be muddy boots, bikes, waterproofs, ropes, umbrellas or canoes.

The house is a 5 minute flat, walk from the town centre with its shops, bars, restaurants and all Keswick attractions making this a superb venue for a family or friends holiday or a group/business activity challenge.

Abernethy can usually be booked for weekends, flexible mid-week or full weeks.

The house is in a perfect, central location in a quiet residential area. We do ask guests to be respectful to our neighbours and ensure noise is reduced to a sociable non-disruptive level by late evening. There are plenty of places in Keswick where a fun party spirit can be enjoyed until the early hours.

Parking is free and unrestricted on the street and on neighbouring lanes and streets.

Keswick is a quaint market town with a plethora of independent shops, bars, restaurants, galleries and traditional Lakeland pubs. These fine facilities matched with a multitude of Outdoor Pursuits accessible on foot from the town, make Keswick a superb base from which to explore, adventure or simply observe and relax. There really is something for all generations with a well established theatre, indoor pool with flumes, cinema, climbing walls, 1000metre plus fells, lake, water-sports and biking trails all within 5 mins from the town centre.

The Lake District National Park is a beautiful area in Northwest England. Covering over 800 square miles. It is the largest National Park in England. The beauty and grandeur of the scenery is a key reason for making the area a National Park. The National Park has magnificent countryside, mountains and lakes. The Lake District is a great venue for walking, cycling, mountaineering, watersports or pottering around the charming market towns and villages.
Guest accommodation at this holiday home offers fireplaces and DVD players. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and kitchenware and utensils.

Bathrooms include a shower. Additionally, rooms include coffee/tea makers and an iron/ironing board.

4/5 Good

Great house, ideal location
Stayed here with our two kids, grandparents and dog. The kitchen is very well equipped and the large range cooker is excellent. The living room is spacious but still cosy. The bedrooms are also perfectly adequate. Parking needs a bit of luck but wasn’t a major issue. The location is excellent for walking into town. We would stay here again.
