The house is in a great location, less than a 10-minute walk from the town centre but nestled in a quiet residential street with ample on-street parking. There are two supermarkets in Keswick and lots of shops selling local produce, so there are plenty of options for dining in. When you want to eat out, you can simply stroll into town and you will find everything from hipster cafes, to local pubs, wine bars and fine dining.

This spacious and comfortable terrace house has been beautifully refurbished and sits in the middle of a row of three-storey slate houses. You enter into a stylish and welcoming living area, complete with a handy coat rail and shoe rack conveniently located to your left. The living room seating consists of a triple sofa, triple upholstered bench (with back), and two single armchairs. There is a Freeview/Smart TV with DVD player, box of DVDs and large coffee table. There is also a cupboard containing a range of children's board games, as well as a collection of cookery books, so there is plenty to keep everyone entertained! The wood burner and large dining table make this the sociable hub of the house.

To the left of the dining table is an under-stairs storage area, with tumble dryer, clothes drying rail, travel cot (bring your own bedding), highchair, iron, ironing board and hairdryer. An open doorway leads through into a spacious kitchen, containing everything required to cater for a large group: oven (with electric hob, grill, two full-sized oven spaces and a warming oven), integrated fridge and freezer (with ice tray), toaster, kettle, radio, microwave, washing machine, sink space and dishwasher, plus a full range of utensils. Every detail has been thought of in this chic, modern kitchen space.

A carpeted stairway leads up to the upper rooms, which have all been beautifully decorated to coordinate with the soft natural hues of blue, yellow and grey on the ground floor. A full-length mirror is hung at the top of the stairs. There is a shower room containing a toilet, small sink with lit mirror and a heated towel rail (the shower has a luxury waterfall shower head, as well as a standard one). The second bathroom has a bath (with shower over), sink with lit mirror, heated towel rail and toilet. The first bedroom you come to is a twin room, with a wall lamp above each bed and a rail with clothes hangers at the foot of each bed, a set of shelves and a mirror.

A large window looks down onto the street.

On the top floor, there are two more bedrooms. The first room is laid out as a single bedroom but does have a double bed, so could be used for two. The bed is against the wall on one side/ There are shelves and a lamp next to the bed, a coat rail, draws, table with stool and mirror and a skylight window, making this a lovely bright space. The second room is a spacious king-size room with a sloping ceiling and a gable window, giving it the feel of a cosy hide-away space. There are two bedside tables with a lamp, a table with chair and mirror, coat hooks and a Smart TV, with Freeview.

At the back of the house is a yard, which you can access via the kitchen or through a wooden gate round the back. Along one side is a slate shingled plant bed and there are two small metal tables, with four chairs, where you can enjoy your morning coffee. This is a good space if you need to store bikes, kayaks and general outdoor equipment but you will need to bring locks, as there is just a simple sliding latch on the wooden gate.

Lovely house in a great location. So convenient for Keswick town, Derwent waters and surrounding hills, all within walking distance from the house. Tastefully decorated and furnished. Ideal for 6 people but probably a bit snug for 8.

Lovely place in a good location with nice furniture. I think it might be a bit cramped for 8 adults as the lounge is small but we were 5 adults so just fine. It would have been better to have a dressing room in the main bedroom to dry your hair and do your make up rather than a chair. The location meant you could walk to numerous bars and restauranRead morets and down to the lake. We managed to get a parking space practically outside each time. The owners just need to sort out thorough cleaners. Hide

A very comfortable, beautifully designed property. Clearly a lot of thought has gone into its design. Parking is tricky but not impossible. Keswick is great, just right for our party (parents, grandparents, uncle and two children aged 6 and 4). We had a lovely time. Kitchen is spacious, There were wet weather facilities such as puzzles and DVDs, anRead mored the crockery and cutlery allowance was very generous (would have welcomed a bottle brush). Highly recommended. Hide

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.
