Contact direct for BEST RATES. The Mount is a wonderful place for a holiday in the Lakes - the lake is 5 minutes away, and a lovely place for walks, bike-rides, canoeing and sailing. Keswick is a gentle 20 minutes walk away (over a river and along a footpath with stunning views of the mountains), and full of cafes, shops and restaurants. What we love about The Mount is that all the bedrooms have lovely views or the Lake or mountains, or both! The house has a warming fire in the lounge and we have decorated it with art from London to Brighton, Fiji to South Africa.
