Perfect cosy cottage in the centre of Keswick
I have stayed at this cottage now on numerous occasions and will keep coming back. It is perfect, has private parking and is decorated beautifully throughout. Although I was nervous at first about driving down the tight alleyway there are plenty of safe streets nearby to park in. Also found it handy that we didn't actually need access to our car during our stays, there are plenty of buses to nearby places for exploring. I really could not recommend this lovely little cottage highly enough!

Very pretty little cottage.
Cosy well kept little cottage in the heart of Keswick. The owners have included lots of nice touches to create a homely feel. The cottage is well equipped, but could do with a fan for those warmer nights. As already mentioned, access down the track in between shops is VERY narrow. We managed to get a Fiesta through, but anything wider would be a challenge. Only downside is the noise outside the cottage. The front door opens on to a yard that's used by the local pub and a restaurant. Staff can be quite noisy late at night, and the noise of crates full of glass bottles can be a pain. HOWEVER, a decent pair of earplugs blocks out most of the noise. Well furnished, well equipped home from home overall. Will definately visit again.

Not the easiest of access but a home from home
Banks Place is a lovely little cottage. It doesn't look much from the outside tucked down a virtually inaccessible lane (beware if your car is wider than a small hatch) behind two restaurants, but inside it's fantastic. On the two restaurants, the council needs to clamp down on what they leave lying about. In the cottage it's comfortable and a home from home. The owners even leave you with tea and coffee and toilet rolls, so you don't have to rush out to buy some essentials. It's a well decorated and maintained cottage and it is also very clean. It is well positioned for the centre of Keswick and close to the Launch, so you can get around Derwent Water to many of the best peaks. Also, there's a great bus service close by too, should you decide not to tackle that access again. Seriously, if you drive, consider backing into the lane as far as the steakhouse, drop your bags off and then park in one of the 24hr car parks.

Perfect Little Bolt Hole
We stayed here first in March 2015 and just fell in love with the cottage. So when we returned in June 2015 to Keswick after completing Hadrian's Wall, there was only one place for us to stay.Ideally located for the centre of Keswick the owners have thought of everything. The cottage has the most impressive bathroom with a Jacuzzi bath, great after a long day on the fells. The kitchen is well fitted to, providing everything you need for a nice home cooked meal in front of the log burning fire. All in all, this is a fabulous little cottage, ideally located, we love it so much we are returning again in October 2015.

Lovely little place
Excellent location in the middle of Keswick, great for a couple looking to have a relaxing getaway in the Lakes. Derwent water is very beautiful and there are some good easy walks around with amazing views. The Double bed was actually two singles pushed together which was a little annoying but I can see why the owners would want to do it. We had a great time and really enjoyed staying at Banks Place.
