This large property is studded 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 and chance to take in the fresh Lake District air right from the door.

Named for the copse immediately behind it, the house stands on the edge of town, with open fields behind, but with Keswick, with its selection of good pubs, restaurants and cafes 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 conservatory; smaller groups can gather in either of the cosy living rooms and there's plenty of bedrooms to retreat to should you wish!

From the parking area and gardens to the rear you enter in to the conservatory area which has a breakfast table and seating area, with the open-plan kitchen just around the corner from the conversatory's settees, it's a sociable space for everyone to enjoy. The kitchen is equipped with a double oven gas Aga, two fridges, dishwasher, microwave and plenty of storage space. Off from the kitchen there is a small pantry which has more storage space and houses a 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.

The spacious front hallway leads to a dining room with a table to seat 18 on the left, and the first sitting room on the right. 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 a bedroom with twin beds, and a handy shower room.

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 bedrooms - 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 between the two. The attic stairs are rather steep, so may not be suitable for young children or those less-abled.

Hazelwood stands in approximately half an acre of grounds, broken up into much smaller areas. The car park is tarmacked and has space for nine cars. There is an enclosed ‘dog lawn’ perfect for exercising dogs off leads. At the front of the house are more landscaped gardens and lawns, comprising a sunken lawn; another small lawn; herbaceous borders and an area of tall shrubs. Garden furniture is provided.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

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.
