This traditional stone built cottage has been converted from the original farm buildings, retaining original features including beams and stonework. Derwent Dale is on the lower slopes of Blencathra and has a wonderful outlook towards the vale of Keswick and the dramatic Helvellyn mountain range.
Derwent Dale provides comfortable self catering accommodation for 6 people in two double bedrooms and a twin bedroom. There is a children’s play area shared with other visitors, and a wonderful view from the sitting out area at the front of the cottage.
There are great walks straight from the door – choose from the towering ridges of Blencathra, or the more gentle slopes of nearby Latrigg and the old railway line. The Coast to Coast cycle ride passes near the door and several exciting off road routes start nearby.
Ullswater is within a 15 minute drive from Derwent Dale, offering some of the most dramatic scenery in the Lake District. Keswick also just is a short drive away with a fine selection of pubs, restaurants and shops. Keswick has plenty of pubs providing musical entertainment in the evening, in addition to the fine 100 year old cinema and an award winning theatre.
