Set in the thriving town of Keswick, this pretty first and second-storey apartment offers a welcoming and stylish base from which to explore this stunning part of the Lake District.

This characterful holiday home is a delightful first- and second-floor apartment for five people. With views over the surrounding rooftops to the fells beyond and the centre of Keswick only a stone's throw away, you couldn't want for much more. A private entrance from Stanger Street leads you to the living accommodation on the first floor. Here you'll find a well-equipped kitchen with breakfast bar, lovely living-dining room, handy utility room and family bathroom. Up another flight of stairs to the second floor and the three bedrooms: a double, a twin and a single. Also accessed via the landing, the twin bedroom has a useful en-suite shower room too. An allocated parking space is a real bonus here, as is your own delightful private courtyard and access to a shared drying area.

With everything that Keswick has to offer just a short stroll from your doorstep, you'll be itching to get out and about! Check out the shops in the market square before taking a leisurely stroll down to picturesque Derwentwater. Take in a film at the family owned Alhambra cinema or enjoy a performance at the aptly named Theatre by the Lake. Fancy a night off from cooking? Grab some takeaway fish and chips or head to a local restaurant and treat yourselves to some fine dining.

Tick off a few from Alfred Wainwright's famous list of trails straight from the front door. Latrigg, Catbells and Walla Crag are all firm favourites or try Skiddaw, Blencathra or Causey Pike for a more challenging day out. If lower level walks are more your thing, there's still plenty of choice. Fitz Park and Hope Park are just 5 minutes' away, with a playground in the former and tennis courts in the latter, both parks offer plenty for all ages. Enjoy a walk along the lakeshore and surrounding woodlands, or head to Whinlatter Forest, a 10 minute drive away, where you can hire mountain bikes and explore on two wheels, or brave the Go Ape high rope adventure course.

A private entrance hall and stairs leads up to the first floor where you'll find the living accommodation. The ground floor entrance hall is the ideal place for storing coats, boots and rucksacks before continuing into this lovely apartment. The modern kitchen is well equipped with an electric oven and gas hob, fridge, handy microwave and useful dishwasher - there'll be no fighting over the washing up here! Early risers will love the breakfast bar in here, grab a coffee and croissant and enjoy a peaceful few minutes before everyone else gets up. A useful utility room houses the washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer. There's a lovely living-dining room; with leather sofas positioned around a feature electric fire, this room is perfect for relaxing after a day out exploring. For entertainment there's a Smart TV with Freeview and DVD player, as well as a CD player with separate bluetooth speaker. Enjoy a home-cooked meal round the dining table whilst you exchange notes on the day's adventures - or plan tomorrow's! The main family bathroom is also on the first floor. With a bath and separate shower cubicle (as well as the requisite WC and wash basin) so all tastes are catered for - indulge in a long soak or reinvigorate tired muscles with a shower, the choice is yours.

Onwards and upwards to the second floor and the sleeping accommodation. Firstly, the master bedroom. Thanks to its large street-side window, this is a lovely light room; with a feature wooden double bed, it's a welcoming room to retire to after a busy day. Matching bedside tables, a wardrobe with hanging space and drawers, and a cute dressing table with stool complete this room. Next up we have the cosy twin room; with 2 single beds positioned in an L-shape, children are sure to love this room (the single beds are regular size so are suitable for adults too). Again, bedside tables and a wardrobe with drawers as well as hanging space provide storage. The twin bedroom benefits from a handy en-suite shower room. Containing WC, wash basin and shower cubicle, the en-suite also has a second door onto the landing making it a really useful addition to the second floor. Last but by no means least is the single bedroom; another cosy but deightful room with wooden single bed and useful chest of drawers for storage.

The property has a dedicated parking space, a rare bonus this close to the town centre, as is the useful shared drying area at the end of the terrace. Take a seat in the private, quant shillied courtyard at the front of the property; make a cuppa and relax here with a good book or simply watch the world go by.

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.
