Welcome to 3 Lydias Cottages! We are based only a 10 minutes’ walk from Keswick town centre and back onto the beautiful River Greta. The name of the river derives from the Old Norse "Griótá", meaning "stony stream".

The cottage dates to the mid-1800s and has recently had an extensive refurbishment bringing the property up to the highest of standards.

The cottage has been sympathetically modernised to reflect a contemporary feel whilst acknowledging its history and Lake District heritage.

The space
After a long day on the fells there is no finer feeling than enjoying a glass of wine whilst sat alongside the River Greta. The rear of the cottage provides a stunning back drop which is unrivalled in the area. The area is secured by a gate therefore providing piece of mind for those with young children and/or dogs.

3 Lydias Cottages is situated on the Penrith Road which leads into the centre of Keswick. The Penrith Road is located to the east of Keswick making access very easy for those travelling from the M6/A66.

The cottage is a 2 minute drive to the centre of Keswick. Alternatively it is a 10 minute walk along the River Greta and by the beautiful Fitz Park.

For those who neither want to drive or walk, then there is a regular bus service running along Penrith Road.

Opposite the cottage is Twa Dogs Inn where you can eat at reasonable prices. A few yards further on is a Shell garage which has a large Spar shop offering food supplies, drinks and other essentials.

Keswick has a large Co-op supermarket for everyday needs. Alternatively, you could try Booths which is an upmarket grocery chain focused on regional produce, with specialist fish, meat and deli departments.
