Property code: SZ494

A pretty apartment perfect for a family of four or a group of friends. Situated right in the heart of Keswick and close to amenities, attractions and walking trails.

Enjoying enviable views from both sides over the surrounding rooftops to the fells beyond, this lovely holiday property is a third floor apartment just a short walk from the centre of Keswick. Accessed via three flights of stairs or the communal lift (there is step free access from the front door, but a short flight of stairs to reach the lift when accessing the building from the car park), the property offers wonderful, refurbished accommodation for four. With a modern kitchen, fantastic living-dining room, two lovely bedrooms, a double and a twin, two bathrooms and its own designated parking space, there's a lot to love about the property!

With everything that Keswick has to offer right on your doorstep, there's certainly plenty to see and do during your stay at the property. Head to beautiful Derwentwater, just a short walk from the apartment, for a day on the water; hire a canoe or rowing boat if you're feeling adventurous, or simply enjoy a ride on one of the popular launches. Why not don your walking boots and set off on the circular 10 mile walk around Derwentwater? Walk along the lakeshore and through beautiful woodland, you'll be rewarded by stunning views all the way round. For those with an interest in the more mystical, a walk up to Castlerigg Stone Circle is a must - see if you can count the same number of stones twice! Linger over coffee and homemade cake in one of the many independent cafes or stock up on local produce and souvenirs at the weekly market.

Fell walkers will delight at the number of mountains you can tackle straight from the front door without needing to get in the car. Head up ever popular Latrigg for stunning panoramic views over Keswick, pause for a moment at the famous bench near the top, perfect for a flask of tea. Continue onwards and upwards to mighty Skiddaw, England's fourth highest mountain. Scramble up Catbells or Walla Crag, the picturesque views over Derwentwater are certainly worth the climb!

Why not treat yourselves to a stay at the property? A wonderful two bedroom, two bathroom apartment a stone's throw from the centre of Keswick. Sitting pretty on the third floor of Chaucer House, this property enjoys enviable views from its elevated position over the surrounding rooftops to the fells beyond.

Head inside the property and you'll feel instantly at home in this refurbished apartment. All the rooms are located off a central hallway allowing for super easy and relaxed living. The modern kitchen is well equipped with an electric oven and hob, handy microwave and even a slimline dishwasher - if you did fancy doing the washing up yourself though, you can do so with a view! The sink is perfectly positioned in the window with a fantastic view towards Latrigg and Skiddaw. Next to the kitchen is a handy storage cupboard containing a useful washer/dryer, boot rack and hooks for coats. Across the landing from the kitchen is the quirky living-dining room. Set in the eaves, this is a wonderfully cosy room but thanks to its two dormer windows still manages to make the most of its elevated position. This time the view is to the front, over trees and pretty St Johns Church to Grisedale Pike and the Coledale Round in the distance. Gather round the dining table for a hearty home cooked meal before moving seemlessly to the sofa and armchairs for a cosy night in. For entertainment there's a TV with Apple TV and a speaker should you wish to play your own music.

Next along the landing is the modern family bathroom. With a bath and shower over (as well as the WC and wash basin), all tastes are catered for; indulge in a long soak or reinvigorate tired muscles under the shower. The master double bedroom is a lovely relaxing room. Why not enjoy your morning cuppa whilst admiring the view from the comfort of your bed? A storage cupboard with hanging space and a bench with storage baskets are useful additions that complete this lovely room. This bedroom's en-suite shower room is a real treat and means the apartment works well for small families, friends, or two couples looking to holiday together. In the en-suite you'll find a WC, wash basin and shower cubicle. A delightful twin completes the sleeping accommodation.

A designated parking space is a real bonus this close to the town centre (unrestricted on-street parking can be found be found nearby for a second car), as is having so much green space on your doorstep. Indeed, the property is the perfect place to retreat to after a day out exploring.

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.
