Whether for an energetic, adventurous holiday or a peaceful, countryside retreat, this charming house is the perfect place to gather family and friends to make the most of everything the area has to offer.

Welcome to a luxurious and well-appointed house perched high above the much-loved town of Keswick and enjoying stunning views over its surroundings. This newly refurbished cottage sleeps eight people in four tastefully decorated bedrooms and benefits from elegant and well thought through communal spaces making it simply perfect for a gathering of family or friends.

Situated in a sought-after residential area of Keswick, the cottage is perfectly placed whether you feel like pottering down to the bustling centre of the town or whether you'd rather stay out of the hubbub and make the most of the unparalleled natural surroundings. The town is well known for being the Lake District's adventure capital boasting a vast array of adrenaline fuelled activities in the great outdoors for visitors to sample. If a rather more sedate visit is to your taste then the town has plenty to offer too with wonderful pubs, excellent eateries, museums, not to mention a great range of independent and outdoor shops. For a cultural evening why not walk down to the beautifully situated Theatre By The Lake which shows a wide programme of drama, comedy, music and events throughout the year? Alternatively hop on board one of the Keswick launches to lap up the glorious scenery from the water. If you're hoping to don your walking boots then you could scarcely be better placed as there are numerous walks from the door including Walla Crag or the ancient Castlerigg Stone Circle and should you be ready for a bigger adventure 10 minutes in the car could see you at the foot of either Helvellyn or Skiddaw, two of England's mountain giants.

This spacious cottage has been thoughtfully decorated with a light airy colour scheme making the most of all the natural light flooding in from the many windows. On arrival, you are immediately struck by the fresh modern feel of the house. All of the bedrooms and the living room are on this floor while the open-plan kitchen and dining space is downstairs. Heading along the corridor you'll find the elegant living room. Like many of the rooms in this house it has two windows offering beautiful aspects, to the front you overlook the gardens and to the side out as far as Bassenthwaite Lake. It has two substantial curving sofas, a large TV with DVD and a modern gas fire. It really is a perfect room to lounge in and chat about your lovely Lake District days.

The bedrooms all benefit from TVs with Freeview, high quality heavy oak furniture and thoughtfully chosen art work. The first of the rooms you encounter is an en-suite king-size bedroom, this has two windows looking out on to the gardens, while this room doesn't have a wardrobe it does have hanging space and a dresser. It has a modern shower room with a mixer shower and a drencher head as well. The second bedroom on this floor is the twin room. This has zip-and-link beds which can be made up as a super-king bed should your party require it, please advise us on booking if that is the case. This room has a large wardrobe and dresser. The third bedroom is another en-suite king-size room, its two windows offering views to the gardens at the front and the summit of Skiddaw to the side. Once Again it benefits from its own wonderful modern shower room. The final bedroom is another king-size room with two windows one of which taking in that marvellous vista of Skiddaw and the other to the grounds at the rear of the property. This floor also has a spacious family bathroom, it has a lovely clean modern suite with a 'd' bath with over bath mixer shower and drencher head. Perfect for massaging away tired muscles.

Venturing downstairs you'll find the glorious open-plan kitchen and dining area. This simply gorgeous sociable space also stretches into a light drenched garden room area with two comfy sofas and huge bi-fold doors opening out on to the patio and garden. The kitchen is exceedingly well equipped with up to the minute appliances including a Bosch double oven and halogen hobs, a dishwasher, microwave and under-counter fridge as well as all the crockery you could require for a gathering. There is a beautiful large dining table and chairs around which you can plan all your Lake District adventures or simply enjoy some sociable meal preparation. Through from the kitchen there is a utility room with a large fridge/freezer, a washing machine and tumble dryer, a handy downstairs WC and plenty of shoe storage space for all those muddy boots.

Moving back to the garden room, if you can drag yourself away from those two comfy sofas out into the gardens you'll be rewarded with a multi level landscaped garden with a sloping lawn, mature colourful shrubs and magnificent views of Bassenthwaite and Skiddaw. You can even enjoy watching the comings and goings of all the birdlife from the woodland across the road from the property. What a wonderfully indulgent place to gather family or friends to enjoy the Lake District.

Comfortable and well located. Its not clear before you book it but the exact location of the property is right next to the A591. As a result the garden is very loud with traffic noise throughout the day. May not bother people - didnt us as as we were out walking all day - but this wouldnt be the place to come to spend a leisurely day peacefully relRead moreaxing in the sunny garden!! 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.
