Lovely house, beautiful surroundings, when we were not enjoying the countryside, the family enjoyed 'at home' time with table tennis, board games, DVD movies, piano playing and relaxing in plenty of space. Lovely to have all ensuite bedrooms.
All the reviews for this accommodation are replete with superlatives so I thought I would try something different. I use The Old Vicarage for singing/music workshops and it is the most suitable in Britten. Parking close by in the grounds so no Porter required. Shall I Liszt the qualities which ensure we go Bach? The well-equipped kitchen has a Holst of utensils, dishes, Glass, and Chopin boards, but take your own Purcell for the washing machine. One can Ravel in the luxurious bedrooms with en suite bathrooms but the best Paert (can't find the a accent!) Of the house is the games/music room where we are kept Bizet having the Mozartistic time! If you want a Faure into the garden you won't find Gibbons in a gilded Cage but the Byrd life is wonderful. You case play Haydn seek or ramble through Field and Forrest and have a Wright good time but to be Franck it's the house which comes up trumps for a relaxing time with no Strauss and pleasure almost too hard to Handel!
We stayed in Old Vicarage for three days and want to visit there again for three reasons. First, the location was excellent - the middle of Lake District. Second, the cottage has everything you need, including bikes and barbecue grills. Third, no cottage will be able to beat the price of Old Vicarage. The house deserves the strongest recommendation! The only issue we had was mobile signal. The wifi was working well so you can do what you want but you cannot call your friends and families.
This house was perfect for our large family party. It was in a great location near Keswick and was very clean and tidy.
We had easy access to the house and all its contents - it really felt like a home from home.
Amazing views, amazing place, amazing accomodation!
Thank you for an enjoyable stay :)
Amazing weekend stay. House was beautiful and in amazing grounds. Brilliant amenities and a great location for Keswick. Ideal for big groups. Would definitely recommend.
