Set right in the heart of the much-loved Lakeland town of Keswick, 8 Myrtle Villas is a luxurious and comfortable base from which to explore this wonderful area. Refurbished to a very high standard and boasting stylish, contemporary decor throughout, it's a wonderfully comfortable haven for up to four people. One of a small row of Victorian terraced houses the cottage sits just less than 100m from the lovely pedestrianised town centre. Guests will find a lovely choice of cafes, restaurant and shops literally on the doorstep while the beautifully situated Theatre By the Lake and Keswick's own art deco cinema are just a short walk away. Twice a week the town hosts a market and throughout the year there are exhibitions festivals and events to enjoy.
Keswick's position, nestled on the shore of picturesque Derwentwater, is absolutely glorious. The choice of fell walks from the door is marvellous with everything from mighty Skiddaw, England's fourth highest mountain, to lower level fells such as Walla Crag and Latrigg all walkable from the door. Alternatively, guests can take the gentle potter down to the lake shore and perhaps catch one of Keswick's lovely launches which wind their way gently round the lake. Why not walk along the lake into the jaws of beautiful Borrowdale, have a delicious lunch at one of the lovely hotels or cafes then catch the launch back to Keswick? How very civilised. The cycling in the area is second to none with a fantastic choice of off-road adventures to be had for the mountain bikers among you and some of the most iconic road cycling in the country in fact a stage of the 2016 Tour of Britain went past the cottage.
Keswick is also well known as the adventure capital of the Lake District. Every possible outdoor activity is catered for here from rock climbing to ghyll scrambling, via ferrata to paddle boarding. There's a wealth of outdoor companies to guide your adventures, as well as two marinas and indoor climbing walls. Families are well catered for with a leisure pool with huge slide, an excellent playground and lots of activities nearby such as The Lake District Wild Animal Park and Whinlatter Forest Park. Perhaps you'd just rather snuggle up around the wood burner in this gorgeous house and enjoy a good book! However you choose to spend your time in the area 8 Myrtle Villas is a delightful place to start.
