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.
