Close to Dodd Wood and Mirehouse, this delightfully updated cottage offers warm and cosy accommodation for a couple or a small family seeking a serene lakeside holiday cottage with wonderful views.

Adrenaline junkies can sign up for an activity with one of the local adventure companies or why not walk an alpaca at nearby Whinlatter Forest for something a little bit different?! Head west from the cottage to the picturesque Solway Coast. Enjoy fish and chips and an ice cream at the nearby seaside villages of Allonby or Silloth, followed by a bracing walk along the shore.

Upstairs on the first floor are the two bedrooms and family bathroom. The master bedroom is a lovely king-size room.

Lovely cottage, clean and full of character, the smaller bedroom is ok for kids but me as a 5ft7 adult did struggle slightly but it was lovely regardless and loved looking out of the window. The garden isnt very secure for the dog, we had to keep him on the lead every time we went out. Otherwise amazing place, lovely views and would definitely stayRead more again! Hide

There are three linked cottages in a large private car park area. They are situated on the main road from Keswick to Carlisle, and the turning is quite sudden.

Beautiful view of the mountains out the front door! Really well located for Keswick and villages. The property was quite a lot smaller than we were expecting and wasnt aware we were sharing walls with neighbours. More a problem for them given we had a 2yr old. Do be careful leaving the driveway, it is blind in both directions, you have to creep outRead more into the road and it is a 60 zone. Garden was great for our needs, shame the weather didnt allow us to use it as much as we would have liked. Hide
