This is a delightful retreat for four people and one dog, right in the heart of Keswick. The cottage has a quirky layout with the twin room on the ground floor, along with the kitchen-diner. Upstairs on the first floor you'll find the master bedroom, bathroom and spacious living room. The cottage also benefits from a nearby parking space, a real bonus so close to the centre of town.


With Keswick right on your doorstep, there's plenty to see and do during your stay. Check out the independent and outdoor shops in the town centre, visit the famous Pencil Museum or enjoy a cruise round Derwentwater, just a 10 minute walk from the cottage, one of of the popular launches. Why not try something different and sign up for an activity with one of the local adventure companies? Have a go at paddleboarding, raft building or ghyll scrambling, or you can even tackle the Via Ferrata at nearby Honister Slate Mine - for the brave only!


From low level rambles to longer days out in the high fells, there's a wealth of walking opportunities on offer straight from the door. Head up local fell Latrigg, the bench near the summit is the perfect spot for mid walk flask of tea, or scramble up Catbells for stunning panoramic views over Derwentwater. Walk the 10 miles round the lake or explore the beautiful woodland trails at nearby Whinlatter Forest. Why not hire bikes and head out to explore on 2 wheels instead?


Head inside and you'll find a modern dining kitchen. With an electric oven and hob, fridge and handy microwave, it's well equipped with all the essentials for a self catering holiday. This cottage does have a slightly quirky layout and also on the ground floor is the cosy twin bedroom.

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.
