We thoroughly enjoyed out stay at Kirklands. It was rather indulgent to have this sized house just for the two of us and our Westie but we loved it. The house was warm and welcoming. We didn't use the fire in the upstairs lounge as the weather was mild but it was a temptation given that fuel was thoughtfully on hand. The kitchen was well equipped and the laundry room at the back door was very handy for muddy boots and wet waterproofs. The piano is an excellent touch. I hadn't played for many years so I thoroughly enjoyed tinkling, although I don't think my husband enjoyed it quite as much. The bed was comfy. The bath was huge! I do love a roll top bath so I was in my element. The formal dining room wasn't used but will be later on this year when I celebrate my 50th birthday here with family. Thank you owners of Kirklands you have a lovely house.
Have been coming to Keswick for about 10 years and never had a bad house but this was one of the best. Some of the decor is classic rather than modern but this adds to the charm! Everything you could ever need to make yourself cosy and very close to town. We always travel around the lakes but didn't feel the need to get back in the car again this time, everything within easy walk and the kids enjoyed lazing about the house. 6 of us stayed but could easily accommodate 9. Charlie dog loved the open fire and the kids loved the super fast wifi!
