Charlotte Cottage is a beautiful period cottage sleeping 4 people in 2 lovely bedrooms 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; a tranquil oasis just outside the hustle and bustle of Keswick town centre and a true home from home.

Charlotte Cottage has an enviable location in a quiet street just a 2 minute walk from the centre of Keswick with its vibrant street-scene of shops, pubs, cafes and entertainment. There are numerous different places to eat, foodies and cake lovers alike will be spoilt for choice! Keswick has 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 organised or self led. 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 lake.  Walkers of all abilities are spoilt for choice in Keswick with low level walks around the lake or to enigmatic Castlerigg stone circle and high level walks to Walla Crag, Bleaberry Fell and High Seat or Latrigg and Skiddaw, one of only 4 fells in the Lake District over 3000ft. Take the launch across the lake and add ever popular Cat Bells to the list or catch a bus into the stunning Borrowdale valley to choose from many more options. For a small town Keswick is well endowed with cultural opportunities too; the family run cinema is just around the corner and the renowned Theatre by the Lake offers a varied programme of shows to take in. Visit Keswick Museum to learn about the history of the area or be amazed by how much you didn't know about the humble pencil at the pencil museum. No need to move the car all week!

If you do want to explore the wider area it is easy to do. Head west on the A66 to visit the Solway Coast with wide open spaces and lots of wildlife, or head east to Ullswater home of Wordsworth's 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 for the less brave just pick up a souvenir to take home! Wordsworth's childhood home in the market town of Cockermouth and Dove Cottage his Grasmere base in later life are only half an hour away along with most of the northern Lake District. Keswick is perfectly placed for heading out into the surrounding area and Charlotte Cottage is the perfect base to take advantage of this whatever you like to spend your time doing on holiday.
