Property code: 86396

This cottage offers a romantic retreat for a couple to get away from it all with fabulous walks from your doorstep and the market town of Keswick just 6 miles away.

If you’re looking for a peaceful place to stay in the heart of the Lakes, this is ideal for an outdoors-loving couple. It’s in the pretty village of Rosthwaite at the southern end of Borrowdale Valley 3 miles from Derwentwater and 6.5 miles from Keswick, the adventure capital of the UK.

The pretty, detached cottage is bright and welcoming throughout. There’s everything you need in the cosy open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining area, and space to chill out with the wall-mounted electric fire on in front of the Smart TV. Across the hall is the lovely, bright bedroom with cosy furnishings and lots of storage for your holiday gear. There’s also a family bathroom with a bath and shower over. You and your furry friends can use the lovely, big, shared garden, which has wonderful views and there’s somewhere to sit and enjoy the sunshine or a drink in the evening sun.

There’s a village shop, pubs, and a tearoom in Rosthwaite and it’s surrounded by fells just waiting to be explored. Keen walkers might want to do some or all of the 15-mile segment of the Coast to Coast route from Rosthwaite to Patterdale, where William Wordsworth spent his childhood. It’s also the start of the Striding Edge path which takes you to the top of Helvellyn. There’s plenty to see nearby, including Galleny Force Waterfall and Black Moss Pot – a great spot for wild swimming – less than 1 mile away. Go canoeing, paddleboarding or kayaking on one of the lakes or rock climbing on the crags. Head to Keswick (6.5 miles away) to do some shopping or eat out – there’s also a cinema and theatre there. For a treat/treatment, book yourselves into the spa 3 miles away.

Kiln How Cottage is a suberb little cottage for a couple or a single person seeking a quiet retreat. It is warm and cosy and the kitchenette is well-equipped with oven, fridge, microwave , electric kettle and toaster. I would have liked a milk jug and a bread bin, but these are very minor niggles......There is Wi-fi, but no mobile phone signal, andRead more although there are a few items to be purchased at the "Flock-In" cafe any major food shopping has to be done in Keswick.

Kiln How Cottage was a lovely little place to stay. Ideally situated for Borrowdale and the surrounding hills as well as Keswick just up the lake. Well appointed, cozy and just ideal for 2 people (and a dog if you want - I never spotted that until at the property). Comfy bed, clean and tidy. Kitchen has whats needed if you run out of places to eat Read moreout! Alan Hide

Well appointed (though no washer) and everything working. Small but comfortable & well placed away from crowds, yet near enough to Keswick. This valley is one of the best withiut doubt.
