Eastern Cottage is one of our NEW COTTAGES!
Eastern Cottage is a charming cottage for 6 in the heart of the popular village of Braithwaite. Dating back to the 17th century, original character features sit comfortably alongside the modern comforts you would hope for in a home from home; you really do have the best of both worlds here. The kitchen is well equipped, there's a separate dining room and a fantastic characterful living room with an open fire in the cottage's original inglenook fireplace. Upstairs on the first floor are the 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and outside there is parking for 2 cars to the front of the cottage as well as a raised garden to the rear.
Rightly popular with locals and holidaymakers alike, Braithwaite is a great place for a holiday and there is certainly plenty to see and do from the front door. 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.
