Delightful family home laid out across three floors Central Keswick location a walk away from lovely restaurants Within a couple of miles of Derwentwater Marina and a host of other attractions

Property code: SZ220

A classic terraced property with a traditional Lakeland stone façade, this town centre accommodation offers the perfect base for a family of six to explore the tourist hotspot of Keswick.

This is a fantastic retreat for up to six people. Laid out over three floors, the accommodation is spacious and well presented. On the ground floor you’ll find the lovely living-dining room, kitchen and useful utility room with handy WC. Up on the first floor are three of the four bedrooms and the first of the two bathrooms. The fourth bedroom is up on the second floor, along with the modern shower room. Outside is an enclosed rear yard with garden furniture and a useful bike store.


Located just a short walk from the centre of Keswick but still with plenty of fantastic walking opportunities from the doorstep, you really have got the best of both worlds. Indulge in some retail therapy, enjoy lunch at one of the town’s quirky independent café, or take in a show at the renowned Theatre by the Lake. A trip to Keswick Museum and Art Gallery is a must for anyone with an interest in local history, or head to the famous Pencil Museum, sure to be a hit with the whole family.


Why not leave the car and head out to explore on foot? There are plenty of walks to suit everyone nearby. Head up local fell Latrigg, the bench near the summit offers a perfect place to rest and take in the stunning views. Serious hikers can continue onwards and upwards from here up Skiddaw, England’s fourth highest mountain. Pack a picnic and enjoy the scenic 10 mile circular route around beautiful Derwentwater. If you’d prefer to be closer to the water, why not hire a rowing boat, try paddle boarding with one of the local adventure companies or hitch a ride on the launch and let someone else do the hard work for you!


Enjoying a fantastic position, just a 5 minute walk from the centre of Keswick is this beautiful cottage, an impressive three-storey Lakeland stone-fronted cottage. Head inside and you’ll find spacious accommodation for up to six people.


The bright entrance hall leads you through to the wonderful living-dining room. Bright and airy thanks to its large dual aspect windows, this is a fantastic social space. The living area has a choice of a three-seater sofa, two-seater sofa and inviting armchair, all ideally positioned around the living flame gas fire, perfect for cosy evenings in. There’s also a TV with Sky Q (including Sky Sports package) and Netflix in here for entertainment, or simply catch up with a good book. The wooden dining table is the ideal spot for comparing notes on the day’s events over a delicious home-cooked meal, or spread out your maps and guide books and plan tomorrow’s.


Continue through to the well equipped kitchen at the back of the cottage. The cooks in the group are sure to love using the electric range-style cooker with its ceramic hobs. There’s also a fridge-freezer, microwave and even a dishwasher so there’ll be no need to fight over who has to do the washing up! A handy utility room houses the washing machine and tumble dryer, should you wish to make use of these during your stay. There’s also a useful WC and washbasin in here too.


Head back out into the hallway and up the stairs to the first floor, where you’ll find three of the four bedrooms. First up we have the master bedroom, which has a fantastic feature antique wooden king-size bed that’s just perfect for indulging in a long lie in – you are on holiday after all! The large window to the front means this spacious room is lovely and light; there’s also a useful chest of drawers for storage. Next up is the bright double room which overlooks the rear yard. A wardrobe, chest of drawers and dressing table complete this bedroom. The final bedroom on this floor is the cosy single room.


Also on the first floor is the family bathroom. With WC, washbasin, bath and separate shower cubicle all tastes are catered for, whether you prefer a long soak in the bath or a refreshing shower.


Onwards and upwards to the second floor and the fourth and final bedroom, a twin. This is another lovely, bright room with views from its dormer window over the rooftops to the fells beyond. The adjoining shower room up here has a WC, washbasin and modern shower cubicle, perfect for reinvigorating tired muscles after a day out on the fells.


Outside the cottage has a delightful enclosed rear yard. With outdoor furniture, it’s a lovely spot for al fresco dining or for that peaceful morning cuppa before everyone else is up. Also out here is a useful storeroom, ideal for storing bikes if you like to get out and about on two wheels.

We stayed at Green Gables for a long weekend for a family get together, the house is fabulous; very homely and extremely comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean and in a great location for a short walk in to town or out to the hills or lake for longer walks. We will definitely stay here again, it was so lovely! Thank you :)

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. Our self-catering cottages in the Lake District offer lovely holiday accommodation to suit all your needs, from cottages to rent for a romantic getaway to larger properties for the whole family – we even have dog-friendly holiday homes across the Lake District too. Take a look at our full collection of self-catering cottages and begin to plan your holiday.
