Escape to the Lake District for time away together and make the most of your fantastic location. Leave the car behind and enjoy date nights and days on the water.

The nice holiday home is a light, modern, second 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. Wagtail is one of seven apartments in Easedale House, a characterful Victorian Lakeland slate building dating from 1860, set in a quiet side street just 100m 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 Wagtail 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 Keswick. 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 from Easedale House, here you can hire a rowing boat, take a launch around the lake or simply lose yourself in the scenery.

Comfortable, stylish property offers a well-appointed and welcoming base to enjoy all the sights and activities the area has to offer.

This impressive holiday home is a second floor, one bedroom apartment in a complex 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), Smart TV, a two-seater leather sofa and a luxurious lacquered sideboard. The dining table seats three to four and is next to the double windows, which look down onto Southey Street and across to the slate-built Keswick Methodist Church. Beyond the skyline of the town you can see the North-Western fells.

The large kitchen area has an island sink and dishwasher. This leaves space along the back wall for plenty of work surfaces 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 downstairs (used by three other apartments).

The bedroom looks out over the back of the house with a view of the fells, it has a king-size bed, with ample storage in a double wardrobe, dressing table, and bedside drawers. The bathroom is en-suite and 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.

This top apartment was immaculately clean and tidy with a generous supply of tea, coffee, milk, sugar and some nice biscuits to welcome us. Very comfortable and spacious The shower is hot and powerful, just right after day walking. It's well located for the centre of town and the open space of Fitz Park is nearby as well Well supplied with pots panRead mores, crockery etc. A huge plus is the car park just across the road We really enjoyed our stay Hide

Lovely apartment for a short break. Probably a bit small for a whole week. Wifi wasnt working when we arrived but a call to Sallys Cottages soon rectified this. The location is perfect, very short walk to shops, pubs and restaurants. Overall a lovely little apartment.

A pleasant little flat for two in a very convenient location. The addition of a parking permit is fantastic in Keswick. Great communication and information from Sallys cottages.

Great apartment for a couple. Central ( three minutes walk ) for Keswick high street and restaurants. Parking near apartment really helpful. Only negative is the late entry 4 pm and the non refundable 20 insurance to cover breakages ( of which there were none!)

Sallie's Cottages staff couldn't be nicer or more accommodating, including walking me through the payment process over the phone. Wagtail is in a great location (Keswick is charming). The space is a little tight for two (especially for a full week with luggage etc.). Very clean. Bring your own shampoo. Americans using the laundry will find it doesnRead more't dry the way an American dryer would; plan to hang your drying laundry to get fully dry. Parking is a plus! Hide

Lovely apartment, quiet location, well presented and equipped and very clean. Parking permit much appreciated as Keswick was very busy while we there and parking spaces were at a premium. Would definitely consider booking again.
