Limhus Cottage - self catering in Keswick, The lake District

Modern, comfortable holiday cottage in Keswick.

Limhus Cottage is a modern, newly refurbished, single storey, self-catering one-bedroom holiday home situated on the outskirts of Keswick in the beautiful Lake District.

A level, ten-minute minute walk from the town centre, with access to the Cumbrian fells as convenient as access to Keswicks' amenities, this delightful, well appointed, bungalow is the perfect place to base your visit to Cumbria, its mountains, lakes, rivers, walks, vistas and The Lake District National Park.

For those that are curious, we believe the name Limhus is derived from Anglo Saxon and means Lime House.
