With stunning views over the rooftops of Keswick and towards the mountains of Borrowdale, this stylish fourth-floor apartment provides friendly, cosy and relaxing holiday accommodation for two guests.
The lofty position of this fourth-storey apartment makes for exciting views over the town of Keswick and the surrounding mountains of Borrowdale and the Newlands Valley. From the living room sofa, you can gaze across to Walla Crag and the slate rooftops of the town, whilst the bedroom window looks directly out over Skiddaw, with Whinlatter Forest and Grizedale Pike in your periphery. This really is the perfect holiday cottage if you wish for convenience and a central location, thanks to its position in the heart of Keswick which is just a short stroll away from Derwentwater.
This compact apartment offers all of the amenities of modern living and is comfortably furnished. Everything in the flat is conveniently laid out to make your stay as relaxed as possible; the open-plan living room and kitchen area make for a spacious feel and a cosy sofa, large TV and shelf of books and maps make this a great place to unwind. In the warmer months the small outdoor seating area is ideal for a morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening, whilst soaking up the scenery.
At the end of your day, you can step across the street to the pubs and bars to enjoy a coffee, glass of wine or selection of tapas dishes. Just a short walk into town and you will find many more delicious menus on offer in a range of independent pubs, restaurants and cafes. The Alhambra Cinema is also a top attraction in the evening.
