First Floor Description
Porch Cottage is unusual in that both its bedrooms are luxurious and spacious with stunning views of the river and mountains beyond. The master bedroom features a fabulous six foot super-king bed and en-suite shower whilst the second bedroom can be either a twin or transformed into a Super-King bed if preferred. This makes it perfect for that romantic getaway, two couples, or a family of four.
Both bedrooms have a television and all our beds are fitted with Egyptian cotton sheets and individually styled bedding. All guests are provided with soft and fluffy bath towels for use during their stay.
The second bedroom has an interesting feature relating to its history when the little adjoining room was used for sewing during the period of the Keswick Linen Industry. This sewing room has a large comfy chair for you to enjoy fabulous views across the sweeping River Greta towards Latrigg and Skiddaw.
