Spacious second-floor apartment, with stunning views over the Borrowdale valley and only 6 miles from the market town of Keswick and 3 miles to beautiful Derwentwater.

This delightful apartment is situated in Rosthwaite village at the end of the picturesque Borrowdale Valley, in the heart of the Lake District National Park World Heritage Site. The village is surrounded by mountains and is located between the River Derwent and Stonethwaite Beck. This is an ideal place to stay if you enjoy walking, with the Cumbria Way literally on the doorstep. There are lots of activities in the immediate area including fishing, rock climbing and water sports on Derwentwater (3 miles). It is a peaceful area with a great selection of shops, pubs and attractions in Keswick (6 miles) which can be reached by bus or car. There are also some great distilleries in the area and luxury spas if you fancy a day of being pampered.

This charming second-floor apartment is one of five apartments in Kiln How, a large Victorian house situated in the centre of Rosthwaite village. The apartment is ideal for older families, or friends. Enter via the shared entrance into the hallway and find your private entrance on the first floor. There is a steep cottage-style staircase to the second floor where you will enter the hallway. There are two double bedrooms which overlook the shared garden and fells and two single bedrooms which are cosy, with comfortable beds for a restful night’s sleep. All of the bedrooms have restricted headspace due to the eaves. Along the hallway, you will find the open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining area with stunning views from the window. There is comfortable seating, and a Smart TV for you to log into your Netflix account and watch a movie or enjoy a series. The electric wall-mounted fire will keep you warm and cosy, and you can tuck into hearty homemade meals at the dining table. The kitchen is well equipped with an electric hob and oven and a small fridge with a freezer compartment and microwave. Across the hall from the lounge, there is a bathroom with a bath, separate shower and WC.

Head outside to the front of the house to find a shared garden with seating overlooking the Borrowdale Valley and fells. There is private parking for two cars in the small private car park just 15 metres from the property, and you are able to park at the front of the cottage to unload your car if you wish.

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.
