Derwent Apartment is a ground floor apartment in a small development of similar properties converted from a former outward-bound centre; but don't worry, the dorms and sweaty socks are long gone and this is a well appointed, homely cottage in which to spend a week or two. The owners use Derwent as their own holiday home and it shows - everything you could possibly want has been thought of in this superbly well-equipped and comfortable apartment.
The front door leads from the sheltered communal courtyard into a spacious hallway with a window overlooking the courtyard and space for storing muddy boots and hanging coats. Turn right through a fire door into the main living-dining room, relax on your choice of a 3-seat sofa or 2 armchairs and enjoy the bright dual aspect out through the patio doors to the courtyard and the view of fields and trees beyond the neighbouring garden. Evening entertainment is provided by a Freeview TV with built in DVD player and a handy coffee table provides a perch for a cuppa whilst you peruse the guidebooks on the shelf beneath. There is also a good choice of novels to choose from, a rack filled with up to date tourist information leaflets and a cupboard full of games for all the family. The dining table with 4 chairs is located by the window and Lake District photos on the walls will inspire you with must see places to go.
To the left of the dining table is an open doorway into the compact but well-planned kitchen. There is plenty of worktop space and the cupboards are very well stocked with everything you could possibly need. An electric oven and hob with extractor over plus a microwave and a 4-slice toaster should cover most cooking requirements. There is also a built in under counter fridge and as well as a washer-dryer. Enjoy the view over next door's garden to the fields whilst doing the washing up. With its tiled walls and floor this is a clean, smart bright and practical kitchen. In a cupboard behind the living room door is a freezer, plus an airer and an iron, so you really have everything provided for a comfortable stay here.
Back through into the hallway opposite the front door is the master bedroom: a double with bedside tables, large built in cupboards, a chest of drawers, chair and mirror plus an en-suite shower room. This en-suite shower room is fully tiled with an electric shower. The window makes this a lovely bright room and looks over the neighbouring garden to trees and fields beyond.
The hallway continues past a big storage cupboard, with space to hang coats, to the family bathroom containing a bath with electric shower over. This room is also fully tiled and has that all important heated towel rail for dry snuggly towels after a lovely hot bath.
Finally, at the end of the hallway is a bright twin bedroom with a bedside table between the beds and chest of drawers for storage, plus a mirror and chair. The window looks across the parking area to the trees behind.
Outside is a sheltered communal courtyard, it is only shared between 4 properties and is pretty and quiet. Flower beds and pots are alive with colour in spring and summer and you can sit and soak up the sun on folding chairs stored in the large hall cupboard in Derwent Apartment or sit on the shaded bench. There is a picnic table for eating al-fresco, perfect for summer days when you can open up the patio doors in the lounge and really make the most of this peaceful spot.
Derwent Apartment is a very practical and cosy property where everything you could possibly want is provided. You cannot fail to feel relaxed and at home here so add this to a peaceful location, within easy reach of all the local attractions, and Derwent Apartment is a real winner.
