4 Raven Lane
If you are looking for a great value holiday home with wonderful panoramic views then look no further than 4 Raven Lane. Situated in the sought-after village of Applethwaite this comfortable semi-detached house sleeps up to five people in three bedrooms and boasts some of the most glorious scenery in the area on its doorstep. It's a traditional house boasting a lovely garden, plenty of space and an open fire for cosy evenings in.
With no more than a few dozen houses, the village of Applethwaite remains wonderfully tranquil Lakeland settlement while being just on the doorstep of the much-loved market town of Keswick. The walking opportunities here are just fantastic with mighty Skiddaw and its smaller relative Latrigg both rising straight out of the village. For those keen to find their wild side among you it's a wonderland filled with opportunities to test yourself in the great outdoors. For cyclists the area could scarcely be better placed with a mountain forest park at Whinlatter and a wealth of bridleways for the mountain bikers and a wonderful network of quiet roads and mountain passes for the road cyclists. If you'd like to do some exploration on two wheels but are a bit intimidated by the hills why not hire an electric bike in Keswick and explore the area that way?
Alternatively for those of you who enjoy a more relaxed break it also offers a plethora of possibilities. Keswick has its own beautifully situated Theatre by the Lake offering a varied programme of drama, comedy, music and events throughout the year and the town also boasts a charming art deco cinema. It's a great place for the foodies among you too with a wonderful array of restaurants, pubs and cafes and a twice weekly market with some wonderful local crafts and foodstuffs on offer. For a gentle day out, why not take a stroll along the side of Derwentwater have lunch in Borrowdale and catch one of the stately launches back while taking in the scenery? Marvellous stuff. However you choose to spend your break here whether it's enjoying the peace and quiet of Applethwaite or the gentle bustle of Keswick then 4 Raven Lane is a warm and welcoming place to start.
