Charlotte Cottage is a beautiful period cottage and is ideally located on a quiet street right in the heart of Keswick. Retaining plenty of original features, this little gem of a house is surprisingly spacious and has the added bonus of a lovely, sunny back garden to enjoy all year round. Every room has large timber windows letting light flood in to show off the stylish décor and high ceilings at their best during the day. On winter evenings, close the original wooden shutters, light the wood burner and enjoy the delightful ambience with a relaxed evening in. Charlotte Cottage perfectly combines traditional Georgian charm with modern technology to create a cosy, relaxing and welcoming holiday home.

Keswick has a vibrant street-scene of shops, pubs, cafes and entertainment. There is a thriving market twice a week and a good range of independent shops to browse. Families are well catered for with two lovely parks, the leisure pool and a huge choice of outdoor activities. The timeless beauty of Derwentwater and the famous view from Friars Crag are just a short walk away and from the boat landings you can catch a traditional launch around the lake or hire a rowing boat to explore the water.  Walkers of all abilities are spoilt for choice in Keswick, or else explore the cultural opportunities at the family-run cinema, three museums, and the renowned Theatre by the Lake.

If you want to explore the wider area it is easy to do with nearby places such as the Solway Coast with wide open spaces and lots of wildlife, and Ullswater, home of Wordsworth's famous daffodils. Drive or cycle over Honister and Newlands Passes to Buttermere where you will find a pretty hamlet with pubs and cafes and a lovely lake with wooded shores. Stop off at Honister Slate Mine on the way, take an underground tour, get an adrenalin rush on the Via Ferrata or just pick up a souvenir to take home! Keswick is perfectly placed for heading out into the surrounding area and Charlotte Cottage is the ideal base to take advantage of this.
