Description:

Lynwood Guest House is situated within a pleasant and quiet residential area just a few minutes’ walk from Keswick town centre. This is an attractive Victorian stone fronted building which still retains many of its original features including the impressive broad staircase, ornate plaster mouldings and cornices, and generously proportioned rooms. The property is being maintained to a high standard by the present owners, and all guest rooms are very well appointed and presented to include quality fittings, central heating, flat screen televisions, hair dryers, complimentary trays and an integrated hardwired fire alarm system throughout.

Currently the business operates with six guest rooms comprising five double/twin en-suite bedrooms, together with one further single en-suite bedroom. In addition, on the third floor is a large “family suite” comprising one large standard bedroom next to a further single standard bedroom and with adjacent shower room and wc. These rooms might equally serve as larger owner’s accommodation if required. On the first floor there is a further single standard bedroom currently used as a store room and on the ground floor the owner’s double en-suite bedroom might also be used as guest accommodation, if preferred. The ground floor accommodation also includes a spacious reception hall providing a warm welcome, a very spacious light south-facing dining room with large bay window to the front, and to the rear another large room serving as the owner’s private lounge which leads to a well-appointed kitchen and further owner’s living/dining room with utility area, cupboard and rear entrance lobby. There are very pleasant outlooks and indeed fine views from some rooms.

The present owners have invested to improve the facilities for both guests and private accommodation, including the conversion of the rear garage to very useful additional owner’s accommodation. Turnover has also increased year on year, and most recently for the year 2014 was approximately £78,000. The business has an “Enjoy England “4-Star accreditation and Silver Award, plus a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence. There is certainly some flexibility with the current accommodation and how it is utilised, offering potential to develop further this already successful business.

Keswick, is located on the northern shore of Derwentwater and surrounded by spectacular scenery. The town is the principal tourist centre for the northern half of the Lake District National Park, and although the resident population is approximately 5,500, the huge numbers of tourists which visit the area each year make this one of the most visited towns in the UK. The tourist season now extends throughout most of the year and is supplemented by many well-established events such as the Keswick convention, the Jazz, Beer, Literary and Mountain Festivals, and the now famous “Theatre by The Lake”.
