Property code: SZ337

This beautiful mid-terrace property, within walking distance of Keswick town centre, sleeps up to six guests. Pull on your hiking boots to take on Skiddaw or relax on the launches of Derwentwater.

If you're looking for stylish yet comfortable accommodation that's just a short walk from the centre of Keswick, then you're sure to be quite taken with this cottage, a beautifully presented mid-terrace Lakeland stone cottage. The living room is light, bright and airy thanks to its feature bay window, and the fabulous modern dining kitchen is perfect for whipping up a feast or catching up round the dining table. Also on the ground floor is a handy utility room and a luxurious bathroom, complete with a shower over the bath. On the first floor you'll find two of the three bedrooms: the gorgeous master king-size with en-suite shower room, and a lovely bedroom with three-quarter width bed. Up another flight of stairs to the second floor and the cosy attic twin. To the rear of the property is a delightful garden, with stunning views and outdoor furniture, you're sure to enjoy dining alfresco out here.

With the centre of Keswick a few minutes' walk away, you're perfectly placed for exploring everything that this bustling market town has to offer. Enjoy a spot of retail therapy before stopping for lunch at one of the many independent cafes on offer. Stroll through Fitz Park to Keswick Museum and Art Gallery, a must for anyone with an interest in local history. Why not take in a film at the art deco cinema or a play at the aptly named Theatre by the Lake? Fancy a night off from cooking? Enjoy a hearty meal at one of the town's traditional pubs, or treat yourselves to some fine dining at a local resturant.

For fresh air and interesting walks, you're spoiled for choice! Head up Latrigg straight from the front door. Take a picnic and enjoy the view from the top - the panoramic views over the town are certainly worth the effort! If you're feeling fit and strong then continue onwards from here up Skiddaw, England's fourth highest mountain. Derwentwater is the perfect place to enjoy a day by (or on) the water. Hire a canoe or rowing boat and take to the water - or hitch a ride on the launch and let someone else do the hard work as you cruise round the lake. After something a bit more adrenaline fuelled? Sign up for an activity with one of the local adventure companies; try ghyll scrambling, canyoning or the via ferrata.

For a beautiful cottage in a great location, you need look no further than this retreat. Six stone steps take you to the front door and the warm light living room beyond. Comfortable seating provides a convivial setting around the gas-effect fire. There is a TV with Freesat as well as a DVD player, plus a choice of books to borrow. The views towards Fitz Park and the mountains beyond through the lovely bay window are stunning.

The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, electric cooker, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and plenty of storage space. A fabulous round glass table takes centre stage in the kitchen providing dining for five (or six people at a squeeze). The utility room beyond the kitchen has a washer-drier, second sink and handy boot and coat storage. Through the utility room is the elegant, modern, family bathroom which has a shower over the bath.

Stairs lead to the first floor. The first bedroom is a large single (or small double) - it has a three-quarter size bed and views out to the garden. The second bedroom is the master bedroom - lovely and large it has a king-size bed, plenty of space, views over the fields towards Borrowdale and an en-suite shower room.

From this floor, steep stairs lead to the attic bedroom - a room with a sloping roof, fantastic views of Skiddaw and two single beds.

Outside at the back of the cottage is a lovely garden. Accessed by steps directly behind the house, the garden enjoys gorgeous views towards Latrigg and Skiddaw from its elevated position. Out here you'll find a bench and table, perfect for dining alfresco with a beautiful backdrop.

The house was beautifully decorated and very clean and warm . Everything that you needed was there but with the house only being 10 minutes walk from the town we didnt use any of the appliances. The beds were very comfortable and the bedding spotless. Will certainly recommend to friends and family.

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.
