Tucked away from the hustle and bustle yet within half a mile of Keswick, discover walks up Latrigg or around the shores of Derwentwater from the door of this colourful cottage.

With two double bedrooms, a family shower room, well-equipped kitchen and fabulous living/dining room, this is a lovely cottage for four. A delightful patio are is the perfect spot for an al fresco drink after a busy day.

Walkers will rejoice at the location as there are so many walks on offer straight from the front door: Latrigg, Walla Crag, Catbells. If you prefer a low level walk, head down to Derwentwater to enjoy a stroll along the lakeshore and into the woods. Or pack a picnic and walk the full 10-mile circuit around the lake. If you prefer exploring on two wheels, there's even a garage available for storing bikes at the cottage so why not bring yours with you to see even more of this beautiful area with pedal power.

Fancy a trip slightly further afield? Take a scenic drive through the Lakes to beautiful Grasmere, you'll soon see why William Wordsworth dubbed the village 'the lovliest spot'! Be sure to stock up on the famous gingerbread before heading back to your home from home. Why not head west to the picturesque Solway coast; with its expansive horizons and pebble and sandy beaches, enjoy a bracing seaside stroll before treating yourselves to fish and chips at Silloth and then an ice cream at Allonby.

As the name suggests, this cottage enjoys an enviable position tucked away from the hustle and bustle but still only a 5-minute walk into the centre of Keswick.

Head inside and you'll feel instantly at home in this colourful cottage for four. The well-equipped kitchen has everything you'd need for a self-catering holiday; there's an electric oven and modern induction hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and handy microwave. There's also a useful washing machine should you need to make use of that during your stay. The living/dining room is wonderfully welcoming. Relax on the stylish armchairs around the TV or take a seat on the sofa in the glass-fronted extension, the perfect place to catch up with a good book. French doors open out onto the delightful patio area, an ideal spot for an al fresco drink and nibble - or even just a peaceful moment watching the comings and goings of the resident birds and wildlife.

Up the stairs to the first floor where the colourful theme continues. Both of the two bedrooms contain double beds; the first with a wardrobe and handy shelves for storage, the second with useful hooks. The family shower room is decorated with vibrant green tiles and golden walls, the perfect colours to pep you up in the mornings!

Fantastic cottage. Top marks for location- it is practically within the beautiful Fitz park and only 5 mins from Keswick high street. The cottage is well decorated with a wonderful open plan layout and modern furnishings- a fantastic place to kick back with a book after a day on the fells.

We had a lovely stay, the house was really clean and well equipped. The location was really peaceful, but a quick and beautiful walk through the park to the centre of Keswick. We stayed with a baby and the high chair and cot were really useful. The beds were really comfy and we really enjoyed watching all the wildlife in the garden. We will be backRead more next year!

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.
