Experience the beauty of the North Lakes from the vantage point of Keswick, using this contemporary yet comfortable property as the base for your explorations.

This is a spacious apartment with a town-house feel located just a minute's walk from Keswick town centre. It sleeps up to four guests across two bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite bathroom. Tastefully decorated in modern muted tones, the bedrooms are at basement level, meaning that the view of St John's Church across the road is reserved for those relaxing in the spacious open-plan living room, kitchen and dining area. Unusually for Keswick, the apartment has an off-street private parking bay.

Keswick is a charming market town in the Lake District National Park and UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is surrounded by mountains and the town makes a perfect base for launching into the Lakes, whether it be on a downhill mountain bike, climbing icy rock faces or a gentle stroll along a lake shore. There is plenty to do for grown ups and children, including the Cumberland Pencil Museum, Keswick Museum and Art Gallery, Keswick Spa leisure pool, at least two climbing walls, the Alhambra cinema, the Theatre by the Lake, crazy golf and various marinas on Derwent Water.

Not many self-catering apartments can boast a family-friendly comfortable space with adventure, relaxation and culture on the doorstep, but - put quite simply - this cottage has it all.

While the front door faces onto St John's Street, most guests will access the apartment  via the back door from the private car park. The back door opens to a communal hallway, where guests should turn left, walk down the stairs and turn right to door no.1 opposite the lift. Here, guests will find themselves in the basement with the two bedrooms and two bathrooms on the same floor.

The double bedroom features a wardrobe, chest of drawers and an en-suite bathroom, containing an shower over the bath, basin, heated towel rail and WC. The twin bedroom has two single beds, a chest of drawers and wardrobe. There is a walk-in shower, basin, heated towel rail and WC in the separate bathroom.

Climbing the stairs will take guests up to the ground floor, where one large open-plan kitchen, living and dining room is located. A stylish quality is obvious in these rooms, where natural materials and sophisticated muted tones dominate. The living room contains a leather two-seater sofa and two matching armchairs. The kitchen contains an electric over and four-ring electric hob, a microwave, tall fridge/freezer, a dishwasher and washer/dryer. The dining table seats four people and a window seat looks over the car park towards the peaks of the Skiddaw mountain range.

A travel cot is available, as is a booster seat for infants.

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.
