A brilliant apartment with space for all the family, including your beloved dog, adventure days away at Derwentwater before getting cosy back at home.

Would a comfortable apartment with great walking opportunities and the lovely market town of Keswick all on the doorstep suit your Lake District holiday requirements? Well if so, this could be the perfect holiday apartment for you. Well placed on the edge of town with views to the fells and the much-loved railway path into town running right alongside it, this property is an ideal base for a couple or family of four to explore the area. It boasts a fresh, modern interior, easily accessible ground floor accommodation and its own designated parking spaces for two cars!

Keswick is a dream location for visitors to the Lake District. This vibrant little market town is situated on beautiful Derwentwater and surrounded by iconic fells on all sides. Indeed, right from the door, guests could walk over the River Greta, up Latrigg and on to mighty Skiddaw which stands guard over the town. There are plenty of other outdoor opportunities at your fingertips too. There is an army of outdoor instructors ready to help you find your wilder side whether you'd like to try climbing, kayaking, ghyll scrambling or mountain biking. Alternatively, if you'd rather have a gentler approach to the great outdoors why not catch one of the lovely Derwentwater Launches from which to take in the scenery?

The town itself has plenty to offer visitors from great eateries and independent shops to cultural delights such as award-winning museums, a lovely art deco cinema and the beautifully situated Theatre by the Lake. Families are well catered for with a fun leisure pool, an excellent play park and indoor climbing and caving centres nearby. All of this within a 20-minute walk from the door. So whatever kind of Lake District break you'd like to have be it adventurous and energetic or culture filled and relaxing, this apartment fits the bill.

Inside this ground-floor apartment is a fresh, modern space with two comfortable bedrooms ideal for a family or couple wanting to make the most of this area. Well positioned for an easy potter in to town or for the countless walking opportunities surrounding it.

On arrival at the property guests enter straight into a porch with coat hooks then on into the open plan dining and kitchen area. It's a light open space with wooden floors and modern decor which gives a warm welcoming feel as you enter. The compact kitchen is well equipped with a built-in fan oven, five gas hobs and a microwave. There's also a washing machine and fridge/freezer along with all the crockery and cookware you are likely to need for your stay. For mealtimes, there is a wooden dining table for four and along the main corridor from the open plan space there are books and games to entertain you during your stay.

To the right of the dining area is the living room. It's a warm and spacious room with two brown leather sofas for curling up around the gas effect stove, taking in a film on the television or just taking in the views from the large windows. The TV has Freeview and there is a Blu-Ray disc player too. As with the rest of the apartment the living room has well-chosen local art adorning the walls for decor.

Next along the corridor is the cosy bunk room, an ideal holiday den for children with its own built-in wardrobe. Onwards to the beautiful master bedroom. This stylish space has a king-size wooden bedframe and matching large wardrobe and dressing table. The owners have designed this space with a subtle modern palette of colours making the most of the space and lovely large bay window. The family bathroom is spacious, with a WC, sink, bath and separate shower cubicle.

A very cosy and comfortable cottage apartment. Beds are comfortable, the living room is a good size and the kitchen has all necessary equipment and the shower is superb. Really good to have a dedicated parking space. It is a pleasant walk along the old railway line into town. The fuel station is a 5 min walk and is like a small supermarket.

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.

It could take you five lifetimes to visit each of the places mentioned here; a good way to see more of the Lake District National Park is stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages. Our range of holiday properties in the Lake District and Cumbria gives you the perfect place to stay in the north west countryside or on the coast. Our self-catering cottages in the Lake District offer lovely holiday accommodation to suit all your needs, from cottages to rent for a romantic getaway to larger properties for the whole family – we even have dog-friendly holiday homes across the Lake District too.
