An appealing, second-floor apartment, perfect for a couple eager to explore the northern Lake District and scenic areas around Derwentwater, from the convenience of a Keswick setting.

This delightful second-floor apartment for two is within easy reach of Keswick town centre. As the name suggests, from its elevated position, the apartment enjoys fantastic views over some of the area's most popular fells including Latrigg, Catbells and Causey Pike. Head up the stairs and inside this lovely apartment and you'll find stylish accommodation, just perfect for two people or a relaxing solo stay.

Leave the car and head out on foot, the centre of Keswick is only a short stroll away. Spend a morning browsing round the shops, stopping for a bite of lunch or slice of cake in one of the town's many independent cafes. For a spot of culture, head to Keswick Museum and Art Gallery by Fitz Park to learn more about local history, or head to the famous Pencil Museum, the gift shop here is the perfect place for those with an artistic flare. Fancy a night off from cooking? Within a couple of minutes' walk of the apartment you'll find a great selection of pubs and restaurants.

Grab your walking boots and pack a picnic, the views from this apartment are sure to have you itching to get out and explore! Head down to Derwentwater where you can enjoy a scenic 10-mile walk around the lake. Tick a few off the list of fells you can see from the apartment. The scramble up the top of Catbells is certainly worth it for the fantastic panormic views. Head up the ever popular Latrigg to the famous bench at the top, the perfect place for a mid-walk hot chocolate break. Or make a day of it and head for Causey Pike, where you can enjoy a day on the felltops. All before heading back to your home from home.

Head inside this welcoming apartment and you're sure to feel right at home. The bright open-plan living/dining/kitchen area is a lovely sociable space. Cooks will love the well-equipped kitchen; in here you'll find an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, kettle and toaster. There's also a handy dishwasher - no fighting over who has to do the washing up here - as well as a useful washer/dryer. The dining table is perfectly positioned by the window so you can dine with a view! Relax in front of the flame-effect electric fire; curl up with a good book or take advantage of the TV with Freeview and Netflix.

Onwards to the sleeping accommodation. With a feature king-size metal-framed bed, en-suite shower room and adjoining dressing area, you have your very own bedroom suite! The bedroom itself feels lovely and relaxing thanks to its calming decor and the modern en-suite shower room with WC is great; it's perfect for revitalising tired muscles after a day on the fells.

Up a step from the bedroom you'll find a real treat: a wonderful rooftop terrace! This decked area with outdoor furniture takes in more of this stunning views and is the perfect spot for early birds to enjoy a peaceful morning cuppa or for that refreshing G&T come 6 o'clock.

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.
