Pinecroft has been nicely refurbished in an eclectic style of contemporary and traditional to create a relaxing environment for all to enjoy after a day walking or just staying in and reading a good book. Mature gardens and ample patio areas provide plenty of scope for spending time outside. Alternatively sitting at the dining table enjoying the lovely views. A regular comment from many guests is that Pinecroft feels like a home. Whilst the property is near to the main road into Keswick, the main accommodation is away from the road and one could be in the countryside. Views from the dining area are wonderful as you look over Keswick to towards Grisedale Pike where the sun sets. The outside patio area is being updated and a lovely new water feature has been built. The upper patio will be re laid in the Autumn with paving slabs whilst the lower patio area will be decked with beautiful Cedar planks. It's already nice and will only get better.

About Roger Scoon
Born in Keswick many years ago I left for a career in the British Army returning home in the early nineties and now the owner of Southey Interiors, Packhorse Court, Keswick where we design and sell fitted kitchens, bathrooms and much more.
Roger Scoon purchased this Bungalow in 2009
Why Roger Scoon chose Keswick
This is a family property that I extended and fully refurbished in 2009. Its position and general ambience is one that I love and will one day retire to. Pinecroft is positioned on the outskirts of the town but close enough to walk into town or onto the surrounding fells.
What makes this Bungalow unique
When staying at Pinecroft you feel part of the town and can see cars passing on the road below but retire to the patio area or inside and you feel as if you are in the middle of the countryside overlooked only from neighbouring gardens.

Fantasy time x lovey place to stay x highly recommend it x
The house was updated and had a lot of space. Secluded enough to eat/relax on the patio, yet close enough to walk into town. I would recommend this location for anyone planning to use Keswick as a base to explore the Lakes region.
Beautiful Property close to Keswick centre
The property is lovely, with 2 large double bedrooms (1 en-suite) and a smaller single bedroom. The bedrooms are large with fitted furniture, and quality linens and quilts.
There is a very large bathroom with walk-in shower / wet room. There's also a large bath and a toilet etc. Everything is tastefully done, and works well. The shower is powerful enough for everyone, and as it's ceiling mounted, there's no crouching down for us taller folk.
After the bedrooms, there is a large lounge, with 2 very comfortable leather setters, an armchair and other seats. There is a large flat screen smart tv with sky tv too. The broadband is over 10mbps at all times, so streaming is easy to do. The lounge also has a selection of dvds, and board games ranging from those for the young, to family classics - handy for a wet evening.
After the lounge is the kitchen, which is modern, big, full of every item you can think of, including some nice quality tableware, and plenty of plates, glasses etc. There's a full size oven, a seperate microwave, a good size fridge and freezer, and also a full size dishwasher too.
The kitchen is open onto the dining room, with a large table, plenty of chairs, and a small couch, a great place to hide with a book.
Outside, there is a small deck next to the kitchen, with lovely views over beyond Keswick to the fells. Then there is a much larger garden which is tiered and has lots of outside furniture, and space for barbeques etc. The garden is pretty private, and not directly overlooked.
There is a small driveway to the quiet road, plenty of room for several cars should they be needed.
The house is towards the bottom of the lane, and an easy 10 minute walk into the centre of town. We got a taxi home one evening from outside the moot hall and it was £3.65.
Wouldn't hesitate to book again.
