About Nigel Ezard
I live in Yorkshire with my wife and 2 young children. I have spent the last 15 years primarily caring for the children and Mona House is the result of one of my several 'projects' which have helped keep me sane during that time! Keswick is a place I have known since childhood - first as a camping destination, later for its mountain biking and fell walking and now as a great place for family adventures.
Nigel Ezard purchased this House in 2009
Why Nigel Ezard chose Keswick
The house came to our attention primarily because it's sale kept falling though. When we bought it in 2009 it had rising damp, a leaking roof and many other problems which needed attention - which meant we could afford something we'd never dared dream of. Undeterred by the work we bought it and employed a local builder to drag it back to life...and I myself spent many evenings camped out on the building site floor. For us, the main attraction of Keswick is that it's a place where we can access all we'd want to do without having to travel more than 15 minutes in a car (if at all). In the immediate area there's walking, cycling, boating/watersports, a climbing wall, play park, cinema, theatre, swimming pool, shopping, eating and of course endless rounds of crazy golf!

Golfing and sightseeing visit to theLakes
The property is in excellent conditions and under 5 mins to the town centre. Located in a residential street with good on street parking. The bedrooms were all good size and the owner had left lots of maps and leaflets for activities in the area including walks , cycling, lake activities etc. This was an ideal base and Keswick is a great town with lots of restaurants/bar meals to suit all budgets. For groups or 2 families this would make an ideal base.
Loved Mona House
Just left Mona house, it was better than expected ,very clean, comfortable beds, plenty of room and best of all fully supplied kitchen with everything you could need to cook for 8-10 people. Just a few min walk from Main Street too. We had wonderful weather and loved Keswick too. Nigel was a great communicator too! We would definitely stay here again and recommend Mona House to anyone!
Lovely property with everything you will need for your stay. Very short walk to the town centre. Also very good communication from Nigel the owner. Would definitely stop again.
Wonderful property in the heart of Keswick, clean, comfortable and very well equipped
We loved our stay at Mona House. The property was large and really well equipped for our two families, totalling 9 people. The beds were super comfortable and the bathrooms were lovely. Everywhere was very clean and tidy.
The property is also well located, very near to the centre of Keswick with all its charming shops and facilities.
Thanks so much, we are already planning our return.
Great location, quality property
This is an excellent house situated very centrally in Keswick. It is fully equipped with everything you could need, has great WiFi and was immaculately clean.
Keswick itself has lots of interesting shops, cafes and restaurants and is surrounded by lots of walking opportunities.
Nigel was a great host and very helpful throughout the booking process.
Great accommodation, top location, excellent host
Mona House is spacious, clean and modern and had everything we needed. Stayed here with my wife, 7-month-old son & my parents and we all loved it. Was great to have a high-chair and a travel cot (really easy to assemble) already there for us. Nigel contacted us on the evening of our arrival to check we had all we needed and again before we left to check all was ok (which it was). The house is very conveniently situated for walking into Keswick & for hikes in the surrounding area - we only used our car once during our stay. Would definitely stay here again!
St Bees has an excellent 'Blue Flag' beach around a 45 minute drive away. It's a good place to visit on a longer stay if you get bored of mountains and lakes!

Keswick is a small town situated in the north Lakes on Derwentwater and in the shadow of Skiddaw and Blencathra. There are many walks from the front door of the house, both low level and up onto the fells. There is also sailing, canoeing and rowing on the lake and a forest centre with mountain bike trails, ropes course and adventure playground just 10 minutes away. The town is particularly good for younger families with a leisure pool with waves and slide, new play park, level cycle path, bmx pump track, cinema, crazy golf, climbing wall and the lakeshore beaches all within a short walk of Mona House. There’s plenty to do without ever having to leave the immediate area and even without moving the car!
