Lakeland stone property located in the pretty village of Rosthwaite in Borowdale Valley, this is the perfect hideaway to get away from it all and explore the Lakes and Fells.
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. If dining out appeals after a great day out on the fells, Rosthwaite offers a pub, restaurant and tearoom, as well as a farm shop.
