A spacious, two-storey, Keswick holiday home for five guests, situated above a delicatessen, within a handsome traditional property, and with a private roof terrace and far-reaching fell views.

This house is in an enviable location in the heart of the bustling Lake District market town of Keswick. Sleeping up to five people in two comfortable bedrooms, it is set across the first and second floors of an iconic Victorian slate building. It's a great find right in the heart of Keswick if you're looking for bags of space, that hard-to-come-by designated parking, and outdoor space. There is a lovely decked terrace with outdoor seating, parking for up to two cars and even a generous store room for bikes and muddy boots! All the rooms are bright and roomy thanks to the high ceilings and large windows that look onto town life and the surrounding fells including great views onto Latrigg and Clough Head. You literally need only walk out of the door, cross the road, and you're into Keswick's main shopping area with its iconic Moot Hall, which is the start and finish of the famous Bob Graham Round. It's absolutely perfect if you're a couple, family or small group that wants to be in the centre of all the action but with the space to stretch out after it all.

Keswick's popularity stems from its wonderful position on the shores of picturesque Derwentwater and at the foot of beautiful Cumbrian fells. It's a vibrant town boasting its own popular theatre, an art deco cinema, a twice weekly market and a wealth of charming shops and excellent eateries at your fingertips. You also have an amazing range of walking and cycling routes to choose from: Latrigg is a small but rewarding fell walk and beyond this lies wonderful Skiddaw, the giant massif that stands guard over Keswick. Derwentwater is also perfect if you want to get onto the water! All of this and more is within easy distance of the property, where you can return to and relax after each exciting Lake District day out!

On arrival at the rear of the property, guests let themselves in at ground floor level. Just inside the door there is a spacious entrance hallway as well as a large ground-floor store room that is perfect for storing bikes, muddy boots or kayaks during your stay.

Moving up to the first-floor landing, there is a door out to the decked roof terrace: a perfect spot for catching some morning sunshine. The main door to the apartment is on this first floor leading into a spacious hallway with hat stand. To the right of this is the functional living room with its high ceilings and a large bay window with a seat looking out over bustling Station Street and up towards lovely Latrigg. It's a great place to sit and read a book or do some people-watching. The room has an electric fire, sofas, and a Smart TV with DVD. There is also a selection of games and books available in the lounge.

Back across the hallway guests will find the large open-plan dining room and kitchen. This is a great sociable space for getting everybody together for food preparations and at mealtimes. The kitchen is well-equipped with a microwave, dishwasher, fan oven, halogen hobs, fridge/freezer and washing machine. It has two large windows letting in tons of light and looking over the parking area and local houses to Chestnut Hill. The dining area has a large table and a window looking out onto the roof terrace.

Moving up to the second floor there is a Parker Knoll armchair on the landing, allowing you to sit back and enjoy the views past the slate-turreted buildings to Latrigg and Skiddaw in the distance. The triple room is a large, high-ceilinged space with a double and a single bed as well as a wardrobe, dresser and armchair. On this landing is the family bathroom with its shower over the bath. The large master bedroom has a king-size bed, large wardrobe and drawers as well as a large en-suite shower room with mixer shower. The views from this room stretch out to Chestnut Hill and towards Walla Crag.

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.
