If being right at the beating heart of the delightful Lake District town of Keswick appeals then Cumberland Place might be just the place for you. Sleeping up to five people in two comfortable bedrooms Cumberland Place is a spacious apartment with a lovely decked roof terrace and its own designated parking for up to two cars. There is even a store room at the property ideal for bike storage or those muddy boots after a day on the fells. Keswick is blessed with some stunning Victorian slate buildings and Cumberland Place is situated in one of these. Making up the first and second floor of the building it has wonderful spacious rooms with high ceilings and large windows looking out on gently bustling town life and to the fells surrounding this Lake District gem.

Keswick's popularity stems from its wonderful position on the shores of picturesque Derwentwater and at the foot of beautiful Cumbrian fells. It's a vibrant town with an atmosphere all its own; boasting its own popular theatre, an art deco cinema, a twice weekly market and a wealth of charming shops and excellent eateries at your fingertips. The charming traffic-free centre of town is just over the road from Cumberland Place. Just lovely for summer evening strolls around its restaurants and pubs. Added to this you have an amazing range of walking and cycling right from the door. Latrigg is a small but rewarding fell walk which you can easily access from the apartment, indeed you can see its summit from the house. Beyond this lies wonderful Skiddaw, the giant massif that stands guard over Keswick. It is England's fourth highest mountain and, if you're feeling fit and well prepared, you can scale it straight from the door.

Why not make the most of stunning Derwentwater during your stay? The stately Keswick Launches wind their way around its seven landing stages making it easy to explore the Borrowdale Valley. Indeed a delightful day out is a walk along the western shore of the Lake to one of Borrowdale's lovely pubs, restaurants or cafes taking in a delicious lunch and then catching a launch back. What a treat. If you'd rather be a bit more hands on then why not hire a kayak, paddleboard or rowing boat from one of the marinas and explore the lake that way? You can find your perfect picnic spot and enjoy the stunning views in all directions. If you are visiting with children then there's lots to do in the area. The Keswick Leisure Pool with its wave machine and huge slide is just a short stroll away from Cumberland Place, ideal for rainy day splash about fun. While Fitz park and its excellent playground are only a five minute potter too. It's easy to see why Keswick is such a well-loved gem and at Cumberland Place you'll be right in the heart of it.
