In the sitting room there's an oak beamed ceiling, cushioned seats in the alcoves and a log fire (initial logs provided on a seasonal basis) The modern world has landed here though and you can access Wi-Fi, enjoy television and watch a range of DVDs. A collection of books and jigsaws are also available for you to enjoy during your stay.

he kitchen has underfloor heating under the original 300 year old Skiddaw black slate slabs which always warms the heart as well as the feet on those early winter mornings. This stylish kitchen has everything you would need to self cater, including an AEG fridge freezer, a Siemens induction hob, oven, dishwasher, and an AEG washer / dryer. Attention to detail and quality equipment is on offer including a Juperana Bordeaux granite worktop which is beautiful in itself.

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 large bath, shower cubicle with overhead drenh shower, stylish 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 with terrific views. The Master bedroom has a six foot super-king bed and is en-suite with shower, whilst the second has a super-king bed which can also be setup as two single beds if required. This makes the cottage perfect for two couples 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.
