Property code: SZ301

A welcoming holiday home in the Lake District market town of Keswick, ideal for fell and lakeside walks, as well as trips out and water sports activities on Derwentwater.

Situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac with views towards Latrigg and the North Western Fells, this cottage is the ideal base for launching into the Lake District. Not only is the cottage, which sleeps up to six people, away from the main road, but it has a field to the rear where local Herdwick sheep peacefully graze.

Keswick is a jewel in the northern Lake District's crown situated on the shores of the incredibly picturesque Derwentwater. It's a vibrant market town with a wonderful atmosphere where you can indulge your wild side with any number of adventurous outdoor activities or pamper your taste buds with a huge range of eateries offering great local food and Cumbrian real ales. The walking and cycling on offer here is second to none with paths and tracks to suit those in search of gentle picturesque strolls or Lake District giants such as Skiddaw to climb if you're feeling more energetic.

Ancient and mysterious, Castlerigg Stone Circle sits less than a mile up the hill from the cottage. Dating from around 3000 BC and occupying an elevated plateau, it is one of the most stunningly situated stone circles you will find with breathtaking views in all directions. Just beyond the stone circle is the Keswick Climbing Wall and Rookery Woods which incorporates all types of fun for all ages!

This is a spacious detached house at the bottom of a sought-after cul-de-sac on the edge of the much loved Lakeland town of Keswick. Easy to find on the main road into Keswick and benefiting from its own driveway, it is perfect for making the most of the town and surrounding area.

This cottage has a huge kitchen and utility area at the back of the house and a generously-sized conservatory to the side with two bathrooms and a separate WC. It sleeps up to six people, so is perfect for families looking for a launch pad to the Lake District.

The living room contains a TV with DVD and video player with a collection of DVDs, videos, board games and books. Two three-seater sofa and two comfortable armchairs add to the 1960s retro feel. The double-aspect views are to the back garden and through a full-length window looking towards Latrigg and Blencathra.

Access to the conservatory is via the living room and contains a cushioned wicker two-seater sofa and four comfy chairs. The door to the living room can be closed if you want to get away from the noise of the TV and immerse yourself in a good novel or enjoy a glass of wine with the family. There are double doors which lead from the conservatory out onto the patio which is the perfect way to bring 'the outside, in' during those balmy summer evenings.

The kitchen is accessed via the dining room, which seats six people. Not only is the kitchen spacious, it is also flooded with natural light from the large window that looks onto the garden. An electric oven, microwave and dishwasher can be found in the kitchen, while a washing machine, tumble dryer, freestanding fridge/freezer and a second sink are all located in the adjoining utility room. Just off the utility is the downstairs shower room, which as well as an enclosure, has a WC and wash hand basin.

On the first floor are three bedrooms, a bathroom and separate WC. The king size and double bedrooms have views of Latrigg and Blencathra, while the twin bedroom overlooks the sheep grazing peacefully in the field to the rear of the house. The king-size and double bedrooms both have free-standing wardrobes, while the twin room has hanging storage and a clothes rail set within a curtained alcove. You'll then find the first floor bathroom, which comprises of a combined bath and shower, wash hand basin and WC.

The small garden extends from the front to the side and rear of the house, whilst we can't guarantee that this will be 'escape-proof' for the most determined small dogs, it is surrounded by fencing on all sides. The access through the side gate is ideal for bringing those bikes to the back of the house instead of having to try and steer them through the property.

Outdoor table and chairs and a small BBQ will be provided in the summertime.

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.
