About us

Cumbria House Self-Catering


Cumbria House is a Georgian-style Victorian property with stunning views of the dramatic northern Lake District and only two minutes’ walk from Keswick town square.

We have private off-road parking for seven cars, and facilities for all weathers; cosy guest lounges with log fire, large utility room, a drying room and a south facing patio. The bedrooms come furnished with fluffy towels, hand soaps and fresh white linen. The large kitchen has all the appliances and cookware you need to create your family meals as well as a supply of essentials such as tea & coffee, tea towels, dishwasher & washing up liquids.  For those cosy indoor days our lounges have internet ready TV’s featuring Netflix, BBC Iplayer and Amazon Prime and there is super fast wifi throughout the house.

If you need any items for babies or infants, such as a highchair, travel cot or baby bath, just let us know and we can leave these ready for you.





About Ruth & James


We met while trekking in the Everest region of Nepal and our passion for the outdoors continues in Keswick. Ruth has been based in Keswick for over 12 years and is a keen photographer and open water swimmer while James is an active member of Keswick Mountain Rescue, and enjoys mountain biking and fell running. We both have a good knowledge of local hikes and trails; if you require help in planning activities during your stay we can offer detailed information on the local area. We are both foodies as well so we can also help recommend great places to eat!


Whether you are here for a relaxing break, or are planning a more adventurous trip, we look forward to meeting you!
