Sophisticated apartment accommodation, within an impressive 19th-century building in the Lakeland market town of Keswick, ideal for a couple and their dog.

This characterful holiday home is a large, light-filled, ground floor studio apartment that’s perfect for a couple looking for a comfortable and stylish base from which to launch into the Lake District. Siskin is one of seven apartments in a complex, a Victorian Lakeland slate building dating from 1860, set in a quiet side street just 100m stroll from the bustling centre of Keswick, with its pubs, restaurants, shops, art-deco cinema, theatre and attractions. Although parking can be a headache in Keswick, Siskin gives you the advantage of a private parking permit, so your lovely day in the Lakes won’t be marred by hunting for a parking space.

Keswick is a gem in the northern Lake District's crown, located on the shores of the incredibly gorgeous lake, Derwentwater. It's a vibrant market town with a wonderful atmosphere, where you can revel in any number of adventurous outdoor activities or pamper your taste buds with a huge range of eateries providing tasty local food and Cumbrian real ales. The cycling and walking on offer here is unbeatable, with paths and tracks to suit those in search of pleasant walks or those who wish to take on the Lake District giants. Skiddaw is available to climb if you're feeling more up to the challenge.

Ancient and mysterious, Castlerigg Stone Circle is a little over a mile up the hill from Keswick. Dating from around 3,000 BC, it is one of the most stunningly situated stone circles in Britain, offering phenomenal views in all directions. Magnificent Derwentwater is only a short walk away from Easedale House, here you can hire a rowing boat, take a launch around the lake or simply lose yourself in the scenery.

Compact and comfortable, Siskin offers a well-appointed and welcoming base to enjoy all the sights and activities the area has to offer.

There are seven apartments in total in the complex. Booked together, they can sleep up to 18 guests and two dogs.

The living area features an electric fireplace with flame effect for cosy nights in, a Smart TV and a wonderfully comfortable, two-seater leather sofa. The retro, circular G-Plan dining table seats four (and can be extended for up to eight, though you would need to find the extra chairs) and is set within the large bay window area, looking out to Southey Street and across to the slate-built Keswick Methodist Church.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a fan oven/microwave, an induction hob, dishwasher and a retro-style Swan freestanding fridge/freezer, there's a little extra worksurface too, with a mobile wooden island unit. There is a shared washer/dryer on the mezzanine floor just upstairs (sahred with three other apartments).

Although this is technically a studio, the bedroom is separate but open to the living room. This lovely, quiet room has a king-size bed and a large mirror door wardrobe with plenty of hanging space, plus a chest of drawers and bedside drawers too. The compact en-suite bathroom houses the WC, heated towel rail, cabinets with built-in handbasin, lamp with integral shaver socket, and a large walk-in shower with dual overhead and handset chrome shower sprays, offering a generous rainfall drenching experience, a real luxury after an energetic day spent on the fells.

 

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 1 king-size bedroom

  • Fan oven/microwave, induction hob, fridge/freezer and dishwasher

The location just off the centre is excellent and very convenient parking directly across the road in the church. The room was very well equipped, very clean and tidy.

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.
