We stayed here for a short weekend break, with my parents and our 3 year old. We picked Whitbeck because we were attending an evening reception at Lingholm lodge (which was 8 mins away by car) and it was less costly than 2 rooms in a B&B. I can't fault the place! We arrived to a clean, warm house which was comfortable and well furnished. There are really beautiful mountain views from both the front of the house and the back. Keswick town is literally a 5 minute walk away, on the flat. The house is on a road which makes it easy for getting onto the A66, yet it's nice and quiet in the house and back garden. Plenty of parking. There's two really good bathrooms, and towels were provided. We had no problems with water pressure or heat, even with 4 adults showering and a toddler to bath. The kitchen was well equipped - two fridges, dishwasher, large gas Hob. Only thing we missed was a bit of cooking oil, but there is a spar about 8 houses down so it's easy to run out and get items. The mattresses and duvets were comfortable, most of us found the pillows comfortable. There's plenty of sitting space and multiple TVs. Generally plenty of room for storing luggage and hanging coats up. I wouldn't say this is a house with small children in mind, although there was a travel cot and a bath mat and the garden felt secure. There's no high chair or children's cutlery or stair gates - maybe there is if you ask - but for us this wasn't a problem because we didn't expect these things from the advert. We took our own along. We would all love to go back again.
We had a lovely family weekend at Whitbeck, a beautiful home from home! The house was beautifully furnished and very well equipped with everything that we needed. The booking process was very straight forward and a week before our arrival I emailed to check the arrival instructions and I got a very prompt reply, thank you! We found everything as expected and we really appreciated a very lovely weekend! We'd love to return again.
Whitbeck house was perfect for our holiday at Christmas, beautifully decorated, comfortable and cosy, with a log burner. The owners were always available when we needed anything and checked in on us from time to time, very considerate people. The place is within an easy walk from the centre of Keswick and the hills. I will definitely book this place in the future. Thanks Lorraine.
This is by far the best value for money deal I've ever gotten on holiday rentals. My friends and I spent the week over at this house and it surely made our vacation more enjoyable. The house was furnished in an amazing way. From the super comfy bed up to the 55' 3D sony bravia Smart TV. The kitchen had every equipment you need to cook. The host also provided towels and toilet paper. The house was so clean and tidy.
We really enjoyed our visit there. It was very special and I highly recommend this place.
