This large property is situated just 1 mile from Keswick’s bustling streets and popular restaurants, offering ample sleeping, dining and relaxing spaces for up to 18 guests.

This imposing detached house provides comfortable home-from-home accommodation. Up to 18 guests can be accommodated across the nine bedrooms and seven bathrooms (five of which are en-suite) with plenty of space to enjoy each others’ company. There is also private parking for up to nine cars and guests often appreciate being able leave their car at the house for the duration of their stay, with lots of good walks allowing you to take in the fresh Lake District air available straight from the front door.

Named for the copse immediately behind it, the house stands on the edge of town close to cycle ways and footpaths leading to the river Greta and up onto the fells. Keswick, with its selection of good pubs, restaurants and cafes is only a 10-minute stroll away. The best of both worlds. Incidentally, the copse is open to all, proving a great place for kids to make dens – and you can get in straight from the garden! 

As you step inside you'll see that there's something to suit all: you can all be together round the magnificent dining table, lounging in the orangery; smaller groups can gather in either of the cosy living rooms and there's either garden or the wood fired hot tub to retreat to should you wish! 

You’ll enter the property through the front door and step in the spacious front hallway. On your left is an impressive dining room with a table to seat 18. While on the right is the first of two sitting rooms. This sitting room has TV, DVD, wood burner-effect gas fire and great views towards the Keswick fells from the window seat. Also downstairs is the ground floor bedroom with twin beds, and a handy shower room with WC. 

At the rear of the property is the stunning orangery which has a breakfast table and seating area, with the open-plan kitchen and breakfast bar adjacent to the orangery's settees; it's a sociable space for everyone to enjoy. The kitchen is well equipped with a double oven gas Aga, two fridges, dishwasher, microwave and plenty of storage space. Off from the kitchen there is a utility room which has more storage space and houses a boot drier, drying rack, washing machine, tumble dryer, ironing board and freezer. 

From the kitchen is the second sitting room with an inglenook gas fire and traditional wood panelling, making it a cosy spot to relax with a good book.

Upstairs there are six bedrooms on the first floor. There are four en-suite doubles (with showers) and a further double. There is also an en-suite twin bedroom. The bedrooms on this floor each have a TV. On the first floor is a family bathroom with shower above the bath and WC. There is also an additional WC. 

Stairs lead to the attic family suite - please note the limited headroom and stonework in here under the eaves. There is a twin room that leads through to a second twin room and a shower with sink between the two. The attic stairs are rather steep, so may not be suitable for very young children or those less-abled. 

Hazelwood stands in approximately half an acre of grounds. Outside of the orangery there is a great patio with BBQ, making this a great spot for some al-fresco dining. Next to this is an enclosed children’s play area with swings and slides. Alongside the spacious car park is a secure area suitable for storing up to eight bicycles and a washdown point for muddy bikes, boots and dogs.

Really lovely house. Lots of space and the kitchen/seating area is particularly good. I have scored equipment down slightly simply as there were oven problems when we were there, now thats fixed it shouldnt be a problem! Location - we had 3 dogs and I would say the garden is not enclosed in a way that makes it safe for dogs, unless you have either Read morean extremely obedient or elderly dog who wont poke through a perimeter! This was a shame as its a lovely house otherwise. Hide

The accommodation & position great, & could have been great stay for our group of 11. However neither the Aga nor the immersion heater working so we had no hot water for 3 of our 4 days, plus inadequate cooking facilities and heating in the kitchen for all 4 days. These faults were known well before our visit but we were not warned about the probleRead morems. It took a lot of phone calls & a visit to office to get anything done. Could be great property if maintenance and customer service improve. Hide

As the house is about to be totally refurbished its not worth mentioning the details. The location is absolutely perfect and the layout of the house is great for multi generational / multi family use. With some investment and improvements this house will be wonderful - we are keeping an eye out and considering a return visit once it is done up.

Thought the accommodation was really good for the price. At little over a youth hostel price per person the accommodation offers a lot more than a private booking at a hostel would. Yes it is a little tired looking, especially the bedrooms, but it is warm, dry, clean where it counts and offered a great space for a group. I think the property might Read morebe getting a luxury revamp next year, but I would say there is always a place for the budget end of the large holiday home market. Thank you!! Hide

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.
