Conveniently set on the ground floor of a complex of properties, this charming holiday apartment is ideal for families who want to explore the Lake District National Park.

How does a welcoming apartment in the very heart of Keswick sound to you? If that fits the bill, then this property should be ideal. Situated in a quiet courtyard development, with its accommodation all arranged on the ground floor, two well-appointed bedrooms and an allocated parking space, this really is the ideal starting point for your Lake District trip. The apartment makes a perfect base as everything that this much-loved Lakeland town has to offer is right on your doorstep. Once you’ve parked up, you have the luxury of forgetting about the car keys for your stay and exploring everything on foot.

Keswick is world-renowned as a jewel in the Lake District. It’s an energetic and vibrant small town with an atmosphere all of its own. There’s a twice weekly market, a great selection of outdoor and independent shops and even its own stunningly situated theatre and an art deco cinema all within an easy potter of Coledale. To keep young families amused, there is a climbing wall, an excellent play park and a leisure pool all just a short walk from the door while the foodies among you can enjoy a fantastic choice of restaurants, pubs and cafes.

If you're a bit of an outdoor enthusiast, the walking opportunities here are endless. From gentle strolls along Derwentwater’s shore, to small but rewarding fells like Latrigg and even on to Lake District giants such as Skiddaw, all of this is available right outside. History buffs will love the ancient Castlerigg Stone Circle on the edge of the town while nearby Mirehouse is a stately home with wonderful gardens and literary connections to explore. Why not make use of glorious Derwentwater during your visit? A picturesque cruise on a heritage launch, a trip around the islands in a romantic rowing boat or a brisk wild swim could be in order! However you choose to spend your visit, this apartment puts you at the heart of all that Keswick has to offer.

On arrival at the property, guests enter via a communal hallway. Once inside, discover a warm and welcoming apartment with a light hallway and traditional, subtle decor.

The spacious, recently refurbished bathroom has a modern white suite and vanity unit with an over-bath mixer shower.

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.
