Keswick has long been known as a wonderful base to explore the Lake District. It's a bustling and vibrant small town with an atmosphere all its own.

To keep young families amused there is an excellent playpark and leisure pool a gentle stroll from the house, for the foodies among you a fantastic choice of restaurants, pubs and cafes while the outdoor enthusiasts are spoiled by some of the most beautiful fell walking and cycling to be found anywhere in the country.

For the adventurous visitors the town is blessed with a fantastic array of outdoor instructors at the ready to help you explore your wilder side whether it be ghyll scrambling, paddleboarding, climbing or sailing. It's also a wonderful jumping off point for exploring the area's rich history with Castlerigg's ancient stone circle just a mile's walk from the house and Mirehouse, a stately home with glorious gardens and wonderful literary connections just a short drive along Bassenthwaite's shore.

Excellent location and well stocked cottage. Had a great stay. Only let down was poor shower. Didn't get very hot, only lukewarm and shower head could do with replacing as rather grubby. Apart from that, I was very happy with cottage.

The cottage was great! Cosy, comfortable and well equipped. Its location is ideal for all amenities and our own parking space a real bonus. We have stayed at several locations in Keswick but this is the best so far! Will definitely return.

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.
