Link House, built in 1903 as "art nouveau" swept the nation, is an interesting, inviting late Victorian house enjoying lovely views. Set in a quiet rural location midway between Keswick and Cockermouth, this well-maintained house offers spotlessly clean and comfortable accommodation. Traditionally built in the late Victorian age, this country house enjoys stunning views of the forests and surrounding fells including the 3,054 ft Skiddaw and is only a couple of miles from the Osprey's nesting site. Bedrooms of varying sizes also have the advantage of the lovely views, and are equipped with en-suite showers or baths.

Many of the original features have been retained including the ornate plaster cornices, the stained glass screen in the hall and the fireplace in the dining room. These features lend a gracious feel to the comfortable lounge, and there is also a bright conservatory with a resident’s bar. The conservatory is bright and relaxing, catching the evening sunshine - an excellent place to exchange views on the day's achievements and enjoy a drink from the bar. Alternatively the front lounge has really comfortable sofas and an open fire to cheer those winter evenings. A homely atmosphere is maintained by friendly, helpful hosts.
