Breckon Cottage is a delightfully charming Lakeland cottage perfectly situated on the outskirts of Keswick. Seamlessly blending old and new with top of the range technology and contemporary furnishings combining with traditional features and lovely antique furniture this is a beautiful, practical and cosy home from home. The stunning feature Inglenook fireplace and Victorian floor tiles in the living room, old slate floor in the kitchen and traditional cottage style doors give the cottage character whilst the luxury bathroom with roll top bath is right up to date. Sleeping four in two spacious dual aspect bedrooms both with views of Skiddaw and Carl Side this is a perfect property for a family or couples holidaying together.
With an excellent pub, the Pheasant Inn, which serves real ale and bar meals, almost next door, the Filling Station Cafe across the road and Keswick town centre a short stroll away in addition to a great choice of walks, including Skiddaw and Latrigg, from your door you could leave the car at home all week. If you did fancy venturing further afield, being on the edge of Keswick close to the A66 means getting out and about in the car is easy too. Keswick has an enviable location on the shores of Derwentwater surrounded by fells and beautiful views wherever you look. It is deservedly popular but it is still possible to find quieter spots and plenty of peace and quiet. It offers a good range of activities and great access to the fells but if walking is not for you there are still many options for enjoying the area in a less energetic fashion. Keswick is all about the outdoors but also provides opportunities for those in search of a more cultural experience; why not take in a show at The Theatre by the Lake followed by a meal in their lake view restaurant or visit the traditional family run cinema to see a film followed by fish and chips in the market square?
This area of the Northern Lake District is a mecca for walkers with a huge number, and variety, of walks from serious fell walks to shorter lakeside ambles. Wander through Fitz Park into town, head off on the railway footpath or have a stroll in Brundholme woods; all are close by. The closest fell is Latrigg, this little gem is perfect for a family outing or just an evening stroll for experienced walkers, either way the views are well worth the effort. For a bigger challenge take on climbing Skiddaw, one of only 4 fells in the Lake District over 3000feet, weather permitting you will be rewarded with panoramic views of the Lake District and right across to Scotland. There is plenty to do within the Keswick area but if you want a change of scene then Cockermouth, childhood home to Wordsworth, is an easy drive or continue on to the coast. A more adventurous drive can take you over one of the rugged mountain passes to Buttermere.
As a base for exploring the area, you cannot beat Breckon Cottage and if you are looking for a cottage with plenty of cosy character but with all modern comforts, then you have found the right place right here.
