'Keswick ... a sheltering circle of mountains and fells draped in tapestries of rich colour, with Derwentwater a glittering jewel in their midst.'
- A. Wainwright, 'Wainwright's tour in the Lake District'



A quiet, traditional cottage on the bank of the River Greta in Keswick, High Skydes is a perfect base for walking, relaxing, and exploring the Lake District. With views over Latrigg and Skiddaw, the cottage is the starting point for numerous walks, both gentle and challenging. It is only a 3 minute walk from the centre of Keswick, with all the shops, pubs and amenities of a thriving small town. The bus station is also a 3 minute walk away, and there is parking for 2 cars. High Skydes sleeps up to 4 people, and welcomes dogs. Sorry, no smokers.

Contact us: For further details or to make a booking please telephone Marianne or Stuart Hough on 01689 821049, or email us at: marianne.hough@talk21.com
