In the heart of Keswick, this property offers an instant home from home in this much-loved national park. Enjoy close proximity to fells and lakes, along with independent shops and tourist attractions.

Overlooking Fitz Park and the River Greta, this property is a wonderful three-storey cottage for up to six people. Stylishly decorated and expertly combining contemporary comforts with a cosy traditional feel, you couldn't want for much more in this luxurious cottage.

Located a couple of minutes' walk from the centre of Keswick, this cottage is perfectly positioned to make the most of everything this bustling market town has to offer. For those who like a spot of retail therapy, a mooch around the many independent and outdoor shops is a must - be sure to make a pitstop for coffee and cake at one of the town's quirky cafes. If culture is more your thing, head to Keswick Museum and Art Gallery, a short walk from the cottage, to learn all about the local history of the area. Families will love the indoor climbing wall at King Kong, or why not get your adrenaline pumping and sign up for ghyll scrambling or canyoning with one of the local adventure companies?

Fell walkers will love the great choice of walks on offer straight from the front door. A walk up Latrigg via Spooney Green is a must for anyone staying in Keswick - take a break at the famous bench near the top to admire the panoramic view of the town. Conquer Skiddaw, England's fourth highest mountain, scramble up Catbells or venture up Walla Crag for stunning views of Derwentwater. If being closer to the water is more your thing, pack a picnic and enjoy the 10-mile circular walk around the lake - you can always hitch a ride on the launch to give tired muscles a break and enjoy the water from a different perspective.

This property offers stylish, luxury accommodation for six people; with a river-view balcony, three gorgeous bedrooms, two beautiful bathrooms and fantastic open-plan living, all within a short stroll of Keswick town centre, this really isn't a cottage to be missed.

Head inside to discover the beautiful accommodation within. The spacious open-plan living-dining room is light, bright and airy - a perfect space for a family get together. Catch up over a hearty meal around the dining table before moving to relax in front of the cosy wood burner. The feature window seat in the bay window means you can make the most of those stunning river views even when the weather isn't on your side! For entertainment, there's a Freeview TV, perfect for cosy evenings in in front of the fire. At the back of the cottage is the modern well-equipped kitchen, which is sure to be a hit with the cooks in the group. Well equipped with everything you'd need for a self-catering holiday, there's an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, handy microwave, dishwasher - there'll be no fighting over the washing up here! - and a useful washer/dryer.

Onwards and upwards to the bedrooms. On the first floor is a twin room and a double. The twin room is charming and cosy, with a shared bedside table and two lamps; the bright double bedroom has a great relaxing feel, perfect for unwinding after a long day. The family bathroom is also on this floor. There's a WC, wash basin, bath and separate shower cubicle, meaning all tastes are catered for. Enjoy a long soak in the tub or reinvigorate muscles tired form walking in the shower - whatever you choose, the heated towel rail means a warm towel will be ready and waiting for you. Up another flight of stairs to the second floor and the final bedroom, a second lovely double. With views over the park, why not treat yourselves to an indulgent lie in? Off this bedroom is a great en-suite shower room with WC, wash basin and shower cubicle.

Outside, the cottage benefits from a private balcony. Early risers will relish the chance for a peaceful morning cuppa out here, or why not round off the day with drinks and nibbles alfresco? With the sound of the river flowing by beneath and stunning views of the water, it's the perfect addition to this wonderful cottage.

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.
