The room was cheap (in comparison to the majority of the Lake District!) and great location - not far from Skiddaw, and only a walk to Keswick town over a bridge and down the main road. If you make the walk in the dark though,...More

There was a view of the mountains and garden from the top floor but hard to say about the ground floor. There would be a view of the gardens but not sure if the gardens are only on one side.
