About Porch Cottage - Keswick

This charming holiday cottage dating back to 1698 offers the very best in luxury self catering accommodation in Keswick – fully furnished and equipped to the highest standards throughout.
On arrival at Porch Cottage you’ll enter through the original oak studded door into this 5 Star property which is full of character and original features.
In the sitting room there’s an oak beamed ceiling, cushioned seats in the alcoves and an open fire.(initial coal & logs provided on a seasonal basis) The modern world has landed here though and you can access wifi, enjoy television and watch a range of DVDs.
A collection of books and jigsaws are also available for you to enjoy during your stay.
The kitchen has underfloor heating which always warms the heart as well as the feet on those early mornings. It is compact but has everything you would need to self cater, including a fridge freezer, a Neff double oven with halogen hob, a washer / dryer. Attention to detail and quality equipment is on offer including a blue pearl granite worktop which is beautiful in itself. And of course there is a dishwasher so no one has to do the pots!
Outside there is an enclosed courtyard with seating for four.
On the staircase take a moment on the way up to admire the original 17th Century mullion window.The bathroom features a double jacuzzi so you can bathe with a friend in a bath with two ends, overhead shower, sink, loo, and bath robes for you to use during your stay. A combi boiler with instant hot water ensures guests can always have a long soak after a day out.
Porch Cottage is unusual in that both its bedrooms are luxurious and spacious and can be made up as either super king or twin rooms. This makes it perfect for two couples, a group of four friends or a family of four.
Both bedrooms have a television and all our beds are fitted with Egyptian cotton sheets and individually styled bedding. All guests are provided with soft and fluffy bath towels for use during their stay.
One of the bedrooms has an interesting feature relating to its history when the little adjoining room was used for sewing during the period of the Keswick Linen Industry. This sewing room has a large comfy chair for you to enjoy fabulous views across the sweeping River Greta towards Latrigg and Skiddaw.
The cottage is just a three minute level walk from the town centre. The ideal cottage for your stay.
