Herdwick Guest House, 13 Leonard Street, Keswick, CA12 4EL
Herdwick Guest House was acquired by the present owner in 2013 and extensively refurbished throughout in 2014. This attractive stone and slate fronted period building therefore retains much character whilst offering comfortable modern facilities and contemporary styling. The property currently trades from 5 en-suite guest bedrooms comprising one family room, three double rooms and a single bedroom. A store room on the first floor might also be converted back to a single guest bedroom if required. An attractive ground floor dining room caters for guest’s breakfasts, and also on the ground floor is a private owners lounge and well-appointed kitchen. At lower ground floor level there is an owner’s private suite comprising large bedroom, bathroom, second bedroom and utility room having external access to the rear yard. At attic floor level is a boarded out room with dormer window currently used for storage. Outside is a small forecourt garden to the front, and to the rear a pleasant small enclosed courtyard.
Herdwick Guest House is in an excellent trading location within 5 minutes level walking distance of the town centre which offers an extensive range of local facilities including pubs, restaurants, shops and tourist attractions.
