Chaucer's Gem is one of our NEW COTTAGES!
Located a short walk from the centre of Keswick, Chaucer's Gem is a delightful lower ground floor, basement-level apartment - a perfect place from which to explore this bustling market town. This spacious one bedroom apartment is light, bright and airy. There's a wonderful open plan living-dining-kitchen area, ideal for enjoying a meal before retiring to the sofa to relax in front of the electric flame-effect fire and flat screen TV. The king size bedroom is beautiful with its feature fireplace and shutters, and the bathroom comes complete with a shower over the bath.
There's plenty to see and do in Keswick, a week here won't be enough! With a great variety of walks straight from the door, you won't know whether to head up a fell, down to the lake or into the woods first. Fancy a night off from cooking? There are plenty of pubs and restaurants within walking distance to take advantage of. A trip to Keswick Museum and Art Gallery is a must for anyone interested in local history, whilst those after a bit of retail therapy will love strolling round all the outdoor and independent shops on offer. If water is more your thing, adrenaline junkies can try their hand at ghyll scrambling or kayaking with one of the many adventure companies, or why not let someone else do the work and enjoy a cruise around Derwentwater on the popular launch.
If you fancy heading slightly further afield, a day out exploring the beautiful Borrowdale Valley is a must. Pack a picnic and spend a joyful few hours exploring peaceful woods, giant boulders at precarious angles (the famous Bowder Stone), secret caves (once home to "Professor of Adventure" Millican Dalton), and secret wild-swimming pools. Head south to charming Grasmere. Stock up on their world famous gingerbread before continuing on your scenic journey through The Lakes to bustling Ambleside and ever popular Bowness-on-Windermere.
