Fountain and Poachers are 2, 4 star holiday cottages in the famous marketing town of Keswick. Along with private parking, each cottage is owner maintained, well equipped, non smoking, within walking distance of Keswick and accepts pets subject to our terms & conditions - 1 animal allowed in each property.

Fountain Cottage is situated by the River Greta with lovely fell views.
The comfortable spacious accommodation has double, family and twin bedrooms with a recently fully-fitted kitchen containing large fridge/freezer, washer dryer and electric oven and hob. There is a dining area and a cosy lounge recently overhauled to a high standard with traditional flooring and rugs. From the upper windows there are views of Skiddaw from the front and a superb panoramic view out to Catbells from the rear.

Poachers Cottage is close to the river and park. Situated by the Pheasant Inn in Crosthwaite on the outskirts of Keswick. With a newly, fully-fitted kitchen, comfortable lounge with dining area, 2 bedrooms and bathroom with shower.
Poachers Cottage was built by Faudler's Brewery in the late 1800's. A pleasant walk through the park and over the river Greta takes you to the centre of Keswick.

Both cottages offer ideal accommodation for families or couples.

We are open throughout the year and accept bookings on both a weekly and short break basis. Special reductions are offered for fortnightly bookings, smaller parties, and for repeat bookings.

    “Lovely cottage in an excellent location.r”

    Overall a nice cottage. The shower cubicle was a little unappealing due to black mold on the grout and there were a few cob webs in the bedrooms but apart from that the cottage was very cosy and comfortable. It would have been nice to have had wifi access which a lot of holiday lets are now providing. We would even pay a small supplement for the service.

    Thank your comments which are appreciated. We inspected the shower after your visit and found some grout discoloration. As a result we have regrouted the shower. It is possible that visitors have failed to switch on the ventilation fan in the bathroom or have not opened the windows.
