This fully refurbished bungalow offers a bright, cosy base in a quiet neighbourhood with views across to Skiddaw. Less than a mile walk from Derwentwater and Keswick town centre, with private parking and garden.

Attractive bungalow with plenty to do on your doorstep, it is very easy to leave the car and head out on foot. The pretty market town of Keswick is a great base to explore from, surrounded by the mountains of Skiddaw (5 miles) and Blencathra (6 miles), and located between Derwentwater (2 miles) and Bassenthwaite (7 miles). Take a boat cruise on Derwentwater and hop on and off at the eight jetties dotted around the lake. Conquer the stunning Catbells, popular with walkers of all ages and abilities, or for something more challenging, Skiddaw is a slightly longer, higher walk at over 3,000 feet. Visit Theatre by the Lake to take in a show and stop off at Crow Park opposite, where you can get 360-degree views of the mountains along with stunning views down the lake towards the exceptionally beautiful Borrowdale valley.

Enter the property beneath the covered porch and step into the hallway where there is space to hang your coats and kick off your muddy boots. The bungalow has a contemporary feel throughout and offers bright and cosy accommodation. Off the hallway you will find an attractive double bedroom with views across to Skiddaw. The lounge is next door with crackling wood burner and comfortable sofas to relax in while watching a movie on the Smart TV. There is a dining area within the lounge where you can sit down and make plans for the day ahead over dinner. There is also direct access from the lounge out onto the garden. Across the hallway you will find the shower room, it has an LED mirror and shaving charger, rainfall shower and WC. At the end of the hallway you will find the second bedroom which is a spacious king-size with ample storage and dressing table. The kitchen is well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer and slimline dishwasher.

The garden offers a private space with patio and is a lovely spot to sit out on a warm day whilst enjoying a coffee or glass of wine. There is private parking for two cars on the drive next to the property and there is additional unrestricted street parking.

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.
