Property code: SZ115

Perfect for couples, this well-presented cottage with original features, modern comforts and a sunny garden is an ideal base for exploring Keswick and the surrounding Lake District National Park.

Tucked away in a quiet private lane a stone's throw from Keswick's lively market place is this cottage. Sleeping two people in one gorgeous, well-appointed bedroom, this utterly charming terraced cottage provides a peaceful retreat. It’s a hidden gem boasting lovely, fresh, contemporary decor; its own parking space and a cottage garden and patio enclosed by a picket fence. Perfect for enjoying a morning cuppa with the paper!

The cottage's situation means you can make the most of the endless outdoor opportunities that Keswick offers. The walking ranges from gentle potters along Derwentwater's shore nearby, to scaling Lake District giants such as Skiddaw - the choice is yours. Miles of off-road tracks along with quieter country roads and challenging mountain passes make the area a paradise for cyclists; you can always hire an e-bike if the hills are a little too daunting. Why not make use of glorious Derwentwater during your visit? A picturesque cruise on a heritage launch, a gentle trip on a stand-up paddleboard or perhaps a wild swim might suit.

At this cottage, you are right in the heart of things if you'd rather not exert yourself too much. Keswick is an energetic and vibrant small town with an atmosphere all its own. There's a twice weekly market, a great selection of outdoor and independent shops, even its own stunningly situated theatre and an art deco cinema. Why not take in a play or concert during your stay? The foodies among you can enjoy a fantastic choice of restaurants, pubs and cafes. So, if you'd like to come to the Lakes, park the car and be perfectly placed to explore this wonderful area right outside the door of your welcoming and comfortable holiday home then this cottage will certainly fit the bill.

The accommodation is found down a quiet lane in the heart of Keswick. With an elegant bedroom, a delightful gated patio garden and its own designated parking space it makes the perfect cottage from which to explore this much-loved town on foot. The owners have used the available space to great effect harnessing light and using fresh decor and evocative local art to make a cottage that is welcoming and deceptively spacious.

On arrival at the rear of the house guests enter into the lovely light dining room. There are coat hooks and a boot rack, a dining set and a wooden dresser with plenty of crockery for your stay. There's also an entrance into the handy downstairs wet room which has a mixer shower with curtain, sink and WC. From here you move through to the modern kitchen, it's a stylish space with exposed beams and is equipped with built-in fan oven, four ceramic hobs, washing machine and compact fridge/freezer. Beyond here is the charming living room. There are two sofas (one leather, one fabric) and a leather armchair arranged around a fireplace with electric effect stove and a Smart TV. There are cunningly incorporated maps alongside local art to inspire your outdoor adventures.

Head up the curved staircase to the first floor where you'll find the gorgeous king-size bedroom. It's a welcoming room with a decorative fireplace along with a compact wardrobe and chest of drawers for storage. You can also drink in the fell views whilst having that morning cuppa. There's also a spacious family bathroom on the first floor with an over-bath mixer shower.

The second floor rooms are private but you'll find a great selection of books and boardgames along the staircase to keep you entertained.

Many town centre properties lack parking and outdoor space but that's not so here. To the rear of the house is a designated parking place for one car and a handy bench outside the back door for taking a moment to remove muddy walking boots. Moving out to the front of the house there's an adorable gated garden just across the path. This footway only serves this terrace of houses making it a quiet little corner of the town. With a white picket fence, mature shrubs and a raised patio area with metal dining furniture and cushions, the cottage garden is a wonderfully peaceful place to enjoy a sunny morning breakfast or an evening glass of wine while only being a stone's throw from Keswick's lively heart.

You cant find a nicer home than Camellia Cottage. It has the best location in all of Keswick, about one minute away from the Main Street. But its a very quiet street, almost no pedestrian traffic at all! Its extremely comfortable, the bed is great, all the furnishings are lovely. The kitchen is very, very well provisioned, lots of dishes, silverwarRead moree, pots and pans, everything you possibly want! And there is also a dedicated parking space, quite unusual in busy Keswick. Hide
