The perfect romantic bolthole situated on the outskirts of stunning market town Keswick. Well located to explore everything the Lake District has to offer with a pretty outside patio area.

This characterful holiday home is a cosy self-contained, studio apartment tucked away at the side of Claremont House in its own private setting. It has been painstakingly developed from an old stone washhouse into a beautiful and comfortable place to unwind and recharge after enjoying a day of everything the Lake District has to offer. It's a lovely little spot, comprising of one room with an en-suite bathroom attached. The room is dominated by the large king-size bed (which can be split into two singles) and a small kitchenette with breakfast choices provided. Outside is a patio area with chiminea.

It's in a superb location; there are many walks straight from the property on to the nearby fells and there is also easy access to the attractions, shops, cafes and pubs in Keswick. Why not head to Derwentwater, the lake that Keswick sits by, and enjoy a boat ride? You can hire a rowing boat or hop onto one of the Keswick Launches and tour the water!

Your evenings, too, can be as jam-packed or as restful as you please! There are plenty of places to eat out of an evening, and the Theatre by the Lake has shows all year round. Or visit the lovely Alhambra Cinema to catch a movie.

The interior layout comprises of an open-plan bedroom, kitchenette, entrance/hallway and luxury walk-in shower/bathroom, with storage for your belongings (rucksack style or holdalls are easiest to be stored under the wooden bench). A long radiator is positioned next to the coat stand so your jackets are super warm and cosy for the next outing.

The property vaulted ceilings offer Velux sky lights to truly appreciate the starry skies, and a landscape window at the front of the property with views across the valley towards Catbells and Scafell.

Views of Catbells down to Bassenthwaite from the shower (don't worry there's a blind!) and views at Lattrigg and Skiddaw as you clean your teeth!

The cupboards are full of cereal, porridge pots, bread, milk, tea, coffee, sugar, juice, butter and jams, to allow you to get breakfast, head back to bed and relax whilst taking in the views. There is a microwave for those evenings when you just need to rewind early, but as Keswick is home to 20 plus pubs and the same of restaurants, you will definitely find yourself itching to get back into town to catch some tapas and live music!

The bed is a super-king - or it can be unzipped to make two singles (to be arranged in advance). The bed has drawers for additional storage. The TV is angled for great viewing from the comfort of the bed, and you can log into your Amazon/Netflix account here too. There is a range of DVDs for you to borrow and a PS4 is provided for those who like to game.

Enjoy well-earned lazy evenings and mountain views from your own privately enclosed outdoor area which comprises table and chairs, a chiminea and soft outdoor lighting. The owner, Sarah, will even light the chiminea if you're not quite confident about how to do it.

Leave your car in our ample car parking area for the duration of your stay and enjoy a leisurely walk into town. Wall Crag, Lattrigg, Castle Head, Friars Crag and Castlerigg Stone Circles are all within a 30 minute walk away. There is also a bike storage and wash down area, with hose pipe and paper to dry boots off.

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.
