From lake cruises to fell hikes, this welcoming abode is the perfect base from which to explore the magic of the Lake District National Park.

This is a charming Lake District cottage. Part of a beautiful Lakeland stone terrace that was built by the previous owner's great grandfather, it is situated in a popular part of Keswick town. This traditional cottage has been lovingly renovated to give a light and homey feel, perfect for families or couples. The lounge is great for relaxing after a hard days walking with the wood burner-effect fire and open-plan layout making the cottage very cosy and sociable.

The location of the cottage is hard to beat, just a minutes walk from the centre of Keswick and all its amenities, while still having private parking and a quiet garden with views of Skiddaw. So if you don't fancy cooking one evening there are plenty of options for local Cumbrian food and ales within a short stroll. The town is not the only thing within easy reach as Derwentwater is only a 10-minute walk away, where you can take a rowing boat out or catch the Launch which is a water bus service running around the Lake. This gives access to hundreds of different walks of all levels straight from the door, so you have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the Lake District's stunning scenery.

The entrance hallway gives access to the open-plan sitting room and kitchen with dining area. On entering you come to the lounge area, which comfortably seats four. There is a 42' Smart TV with a DVD player and a wonderful wood burner-effect fire.

The kitchen is equipped with a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and electric oven with four electric hobs.

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.
