Situated in the centre of the bustling Lakeland town of Keswick, this is a light and attractive first-floor apartment for two, located in a welcoming Victorian slate building which dates back to 1860.
Stay in this light-filled, contemporary, first-floor apartment in the heart of Keswick, perfect for a couple looking for a comfortable and stylish base from which to launch into the Lake District. This apartment is one of seven in the building, a characterful Victorian Lakeland slate building dating from 1860, set in a quiet side street just 100-metre stroll from the bustling centre of Keswick, with its pubs, restaurants, shops, art deco cinema, theatre and attractions. Parking can sometimes be a headache in Keswick, but with this property you have the advantage of a private parking permit, so your lovely day in the Lakes won’t be marred by hunting for a parking space.
Keswick is a jewel in the northern Lake District's crown, located on the shore of beautiful Derwentwater. It's a vibrant market town with a wonderful atmosphere where you can indulge your wild side with any number of adventurous outdoor activities or pamper your taste buds with a huge range of eateries offering great local food and Cumbrian real ales. The walking and cycling on offer here is second to none, with paths and tracks for gentle, picturesque strolls or Lake District giants such as Skiddaw to climb if you're feeling more energetic.
Ancient and mysterious, Castlerigg Stone Circle is just over a mile up the hill from this property. Dating from around 3000 BC, it is one of the most stunningly situated stone circles you will find, with breathtaking views in all directions. Magnificent Derwentwater is just a 10 minute walk away, here you can hire a rowing boat, take a launch around the lake or simply lose yourself in the scenery.
Comfortable, light-filled Kingfisher offers a well-appointed and welcoming base to enjoy all the sights and activities the area has to offer.
This property is a first floor, one bedroom apartment with open-plan living, dining and kitchen areas flooded with natural light from two large sash windows. It has been stylishly and comfortably modernised and includes a private parking permit (a rarity in central Keswick).
The living area features a lovely Victorian fireplace (not working), a Smart TV, a two-seater leather sofa and a retro G-Plan sideboard. The dining table seats up to four, and is next to the double windows, which look out to Southey Street and across to the slate-built Keswick Methodist Church.
The large kitchen area has an island sink and dishwasher. This leaves lots of work surface space along the back wall for keen chefs, and there's a range of appliances including a fan oven/microwave, an induction hob, and a fridge with ice box. You will also find a shared washer/dryer on the mezzanine floor outside (used by three other apartments).
The bedroom looks out over the back of the house and includes a king-size bed, with plenty of storage in a wardrobe, chest of drawers and bedside drawers. The spacious en-suite bathroom has a heated towel rail, WC, wash basin with cabinet, mirror with integral shaver point, and a large corner shower cabinet with dual overhead and handset chrome shower heads, offering a generous rainfall drenching experience, a real luxury after an energetic day spent on the fells.
The apartment is one of seven in the building and is accessed via a shared entrance.
