Head inside Crown Cottage and you'll find welcoming accommodation for six people. Entrance is via a porch with handy chair and coat rack, which leads through the cosy living room, complete with wood burning stove. There's a well equipped kitchen which links to the separate dining room on the ground floor too. On the first floor are the three bedrooms: there are two double rooms, one with its own en suite shower room, and a twin room. Also upstairs is the family bathroom. Outside is a patio garden area with parking for 1 medium/large car or 2 smaller cars and a lovely bench for making the most of the sunshine. There is a further picnic bench in the secluded kitchen yard.
Braithwaite is a charming village with plenty to see and do on your doorstep. Spend a day at nearby Whinlatter Forest Park. Adrenaline junkies will love the Go Ape High Ropes course, or why not walk an alpaca for something a little bit different?! Walk to the neighbouring village of Thornthwaite to check out the exhibits at Thornthwaite Galleries and Tearooms. Visit nearby Newlands Valley for a wealth of footpaths and stunning scenery, a beautiful area to truly destress and unwind in the fresh air. Stock up on supplies from the wonderful village shop or treat yourselves to supper out at one of the 3 pubs in the village.
Walk, cycle, take the bus or drive into Keswick, just 3 miles away, for a morning mooching round the independent and outdoor shops. Grab lunch to go from one of the local cafes and head down to Derwentwater to enjoy a lakeside picnic. Why not take a ride on the popular launch to see the water from a different perspective? Families will love a trip to the nearby Lake District Wildlife Park. Or adults can treat themselves to a tour and tasting at the renowned Lakes Distillery.
