  • Cosy first floor apartments in the stunning Borrowdale valley
  • Fabulous walking and cycling routes from your door
  • Set in a peaceful village only 6 Miles from the market town of Keswick
Property code: 86247

A charming stone property in the pretty Lakeland village of Rosthwaite is the perfect, peaceful hideaway for a couple wanting to explore the landscape of lakes and fells. Moments from wonderful walks and cycling routes, it is less than 4 miles from Derwentwater, where you can enjoy a great range of water sports, and just 6.5 miles to the lively market town of Keswick.

A shared hall leads to the front door of this appealing first-floor apartment. Head up the staircase to the lounge. This cosy room has a lovely view across the village to the fells, comfortable seating and a dining area for two. A compact kitchen opening off the lounge has everything you need to rustle up a romantic supper. The spacious double bedroom has a pretty, country-style wooden bed, and there is a shower room across the hall. Outside, a shared garden has a covered entrance with seating, and a large lawn overlooking the fells.

Jump on the year-round bus between Rosthwaite, Seatoller and Keswick, for a taste of the scenic glories in store. Between April and October, you can also ride the Honister Rambler on a circular route that takes in Buttermere and the famously steep Honister Pass. Put on your walking boots and take the packhorse trail up the fell to the unspoiled hamlet of Watendlath, owned by the National Trust. Enjoy a drink in the tearoom while you take in the splendid view. Take a boat tour around Derwentwater; it has eight jetties, allowing you to hop and off and explore more Lakeland walks.

The cottage is very well equipped and the facilities/equipment were excellent. It was spotlessly clean and cosy. It's in the perfect location for us given our love of the Borrowdale Valley. We parked the car up on arrival and it didn't move till we left. Plenty of walks from the door and a very good bus service.

The apartment is in an ideal spot in Rosthwaite. You can get the bus just outside so it would be ideal for a car free holiday. It was very clean, compact, comfortable and very well equipped. I imagine the shared garden would be a great asset in warmer months. Although there are other apartments in the building, we didnt hear any noise. The allocateRead mored parking for 3 would involve being blocked in if all the accommodation was full. It was fine for the two cars using it when we were there. Hide

We have stayed in this complex before and the location is amazing, the kitchen well stocked and there is some suitable parking nearby. The main complaint from me was the cold, it was a particularly cold weekend in January and there is no way of controlling the heating in the accommodation, you just have to wait for the heating to kick in at the speRead morecified times and start to warm the rooms. I was so incredibly cold, so make sure to bring a blanket and possibly a little heater. Hide

Well equiped, comfortable and in a great location right on the Cumbria Way in the heart of Borrowdale.. Buses every half hour up and down the valley from outside the building. There's even a bus to Buttermere via Honister Pass and to Catbells. Great if you don't want to drive for the duration The only issue is poor Wifi in main part of flat.

I have stayed here before and was very pleased to return. It's a shame the shop below the flat is now closed though. I love the location. There are fabulous walks from the door and a very good regular bus service to all areas of the Lakes. I came by public transport and could have easily stayed longer and filled many more days.

Cracking location for exploring Borrowdale. Well equipped, warm and surprisingly quite considering there are multiple lets in the building. Only negative is while there is a space big enough for three cars to park in the designated area for 3 lets it is very hard to park 3 cars without blocking at least one in.

This cottage was perfect for me as a single person and would also be ideal for a couple. I stayed a fortnight and only used my car three times: to walk from Seathwaite and Buttermere.
