Ann's Cottage is a charming 2 bedroom cottage for 4 people. On the ground floor you'll find the characterful dining kitchen. With feature beams and exposed brickwork it's a lovely space for both cooking and eating. Also on the ground floor are the two bedrooms: a delightful twin room and a lovely master double bedroom with its own en-suite bathroom. There's also a handy shower room downstairs too. Head up the stairs to the first floor and you'll soon realise why the living room is up here: it's all about the stunning view! Outside is an enclosed garden with outdoor furniture, perfect for dining al fresco.

Located close to the popular village of Bassenthwaite, both Keswick and Cockermouth are within easy reach and there's plenty on offer straight from the front door. Don't forget to bring your walking boots, the fantastic views are sure to inspire! Experienced fell walkers can tackle mighty Skiddaw, England's fourth highest mountain, and its smaller neighbours of Ullock Pike, Great- and Little Calva. For those who prefer a more gentle woodland walk, Dodd Wood is sure to delight. Keep your eyes peeled for the great variety of birds and wildlife who call this place home; if you're lucky enough, you might even get to catch a glimpse of the ospreys who visit this area too. If 2 wheels are more your thing (secure bike storage is available at Ann's Cottage) then head to nearby Whinlatter Forest for a day on the trails.

Bassenthwaite is conveniently located between the bustling market towns of Keswick and Cockermouth. The latter is the birthplace of William Wordsworth and you can visit his childhood home when in the town, ideal for any poetry fans. The more well known of the two, Keswick has plenty on offer. Sign up for a day's activities with one of the local adventure companies - try your hand at ghyll scrambling, kayaking or the via ferrata, perfect for adrenaline junkies. Enjoy some retail therapy at the town's outdoor and independent shops. Or why not treat yourselves to an evening out? Take in a film at the art deco cinema or play at the aptly named Theatre by the Lake.
