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 whilst retaining some wonderful original features.

The cottage is available for stays throughout the year and we welcome a maximum of two pets.

On arrival at Porch Cottage you'll enter through the original oak studded door into this beautiful property which is full of character.

The cottage has commanding views of the river with mountain views of Latrigg and Skiddaw to the front with Catbells and Grisedale Pike to the rear.
In the sitting room there's an oak beamed ceiling, cushioned seats in the alcoves and log burner (initial logs provided on a seasonal basis) The modern world has landed here though and you can access Wi-Fi and enjoy smart television during your stay.

The kitchen has underfloor heating under the original Skiddaw black slate slabs which always warms the heart as well as the feet on those early mornings. The beautiful fitted kitchen has everything you would need to self cater, including an AEG fridge freezer, a Siemens oven with induction hob, and a washer / dryer. Attention to detail and quality equipment is on offer including a Juperana Bordeaux granite worktop. And of course there is a dishwasher so no one has to do the pots!

Outside there is an enclosed courtyard with seating concealing an outdoor bath. Ideal for those who wish to bathe under the stars in complete privacy.

On the staircase take a moment on the way up to admire the original 17th Century mullion window.The bathroom features a double bath, 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 with terrific views over the river Greta towards the fells. The master bedroom is en-suite with a shower and has a six foot super-king bed whilst the second has two single beds which can also be setup as a superking 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.
The second bedroom has an interesting feature relating to the cottage’s history when the little adjoining room was used for sewing during the period of the Keswick Linen Industry. This sewing room has a 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, so you can leave the car as there are two allocated parking spaces at the rear of the cottage.

This is the ideal cottage for your stay.
