Property code: SZ333

Elegant retreat in a peaceful location, with fabulous walking opportunities from the doorstep and yet just 1 mile from the independent shops, cafes, and restaurants of the pretty town of Keswick.

Experience a stay at this beautiful two-bedroom, two-bathroom cottage for four people. Located a short distance from Keswick with lots of great walks for your doorstep, it is the perfect place for you to relax and unwind. The lovely rooms are well appointed and will provide plenty of comfort during your stay, while the delightful south-facing patio area off the conservatory is a real sun-trap and has wonderful views over the Lakeland fells.

Located a scenic 15-minute walk from the centre of Keswick, why not walk along the lovely pathways into town and indulge in some retail therapy? Stop off for coffee and cake at one the independent cafes before the return journey. For those interested in local history, a trip to Keswick Museum and Art Gallery is a must, or test your brain power at the aptly named Puzzling Place. There's a great choice of eateries on offer in Keswick - try a different one every night! Treat yourselves to cocktails and a delicious meal in a friendly atmosphere in town.

Lace up your walking boots and head up local fell Latrigg straight from the door. Wind your way through the woods to the top - be sure to keep an eye out for the resident deer, buzzards and red squirrels. Serious fell walkers can continue onwards and upwards onto mighty Skiddaw, England's fourth highest mountain, from here too. Why not scramble up Catbells or Walla Crag for stunning panoramic views of Derwentwater? If you'd rather be closer to the water, tackle the 10-mile circular walk round the lake or enjoy a cruise on the popular launch and enjoy the water from a different perspective.

The spacious open-plan living-dining room is wonderfully inviting. In the living area, the furniture is arranged to take full advantage of the large wood burner, perfect for cosy evenings in in front of the fire. For entertainment, there's a Freeview TV or gather round the dining table and compare notes on your day's adventures. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you'd need for a self catering holiday, there's an electric oven, separate induction hob, handy microwave, even handier wine-cooler, built in dishwasher and built in fridge/freezer. Pull up a stool at the modern island unit and keep the cook company. In the charming conservatory you'll find another table and chairs; a lovely light filled room overlooking the private patio, it's a lovely place to linger over a peaceful brunch.

Also on the ground floor is a handy utility/drying room with a washer/dryer, overhead traditional airer, iron and ironing board, as well as a Butler's sink, coat hooks and storage space. A handy desk area is positioned by one of the picture windows, an ideal spot if you need to do a bit of work.

Head up the stairs to the first floor where you'll find the two gorgeous bedrooms and two bathrooms. The fabulous king-size bedroom is a real treat; decorated in calming neutral grey tones, it's the perfect place to relax with an elegant double ended chaise lounge perfectly positioned in front of the large feature window overlooking the gardens and Lakeland fells. There is a wardrobe and chest of drawers, and it has its own spacious en-suite bathroom with WC, two wash basins, bath and separate shower cubicle.

The second bedroom is no less lovely than the first. This room contains a super-king bed (which can be made up as a twin upon request) and has mirrored wardrobes and chest of drawers for storage. Also on the first floor is the family shower room. As well as the WC and wash basin there's a fantastic modern shower with rainfall-effect shower head perfect for soothing muscles tired from walking.

Outside the conservatory is a delightful south-facing rear patio area, overlooking the private gardens, perfect for an al fresco aperitif. There are a table and chairs for guest use on the patio where you can keep an eye out for the wide variety of birds that like to visit, you might even be lucky enough to spot a much loved but elusive red squirrel.

Please note that whilst the gardens provide a beautiful outlook, access to and use of the gardens are solely for the resident owners of the other properties.

Beautiful cottage...you will not want to leave. Peaceful setting 15 minute walk up the hill from Keswick. Fabulous views. All you need to bring is food, clothing, and toiletries. Everything you need to prepare meals and clean up is there. But do bring matches for the log burner, salt and pepper, and chuck a couple of throws in the car in case you nRead moreeed them.

Fantastic cottage in a fantastic location. Easy walking distance into Keswick. We had horrendous weather all week, but the hallway with the utility room at the end was great to hang all our damp clothing. Lounge was cosy and comfortable to rest our weary legs. Well thought out kitchen. Bedrooms and bathrooms were first rate.

Magnolia is a stunning property in a fantastic location. We have visited 3 times now and thoroughly enjoyed staying in this wonderful cottage.

Beautiful cottage in a great location. Weve stayed in many cottages around the country and this was one of the best, particularly with the log burner in the winter. Very spacious, well equipped and clean. Will definitely be going back.

This is a lovely property hidden away in Keswick. It was immaculately clean with high standards of decor. We liked that Keswick was walking distance via either the footpath from the house or from the area of the large oak tree that is mentioned in the directions. We found it drier underfoot at this time of year. There are endless things to do and sRead moreee in the area that cannot all be explored in one visit. 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.
