Surrounded by the magnificent beauty of the Newlands Valley, Fulwith is a wonderful cottage for up to 8 people. With stunning views from all sides and comfortable, welcoming accommodation, you're sure to feel right at home here. The fantastic dining kitchen has a sliding patio door out to the garden, perfect for bringing the outside in on warm days. The living room also has a sliding patio door as well as a wood burner and large TV, ideal for relaxing evenings in. Also on the ground floor is a downstairs cloakroom and a games room with table football and a piano, as well as a large utility room. Upstairs on the first floor are the 4 spacious bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. There are 2 double rooms, both with their own en-suite shower room, and 2 twin rooms. The family bathroom has a bath and separate shower. Outside there is large patio area with wonderful views to inspire all your adventures. There are paths around the house and down to a firepit area with seating. As the house is set on a hillside the garden has different levels and does have steep drops in some areas.
With such beautiful scenery on your doorstep, there's certainly plenty to explore. Walk straight from the door to the top of Catbells, the climb is definitely worth the views from the summit! Take the picturesque 3 mile walk along the beck as it winds its way to the village of Braithwaite. Stock up on supplies from the village shop here or treat yourselves to refreshments from one of the 3 pubs in the village before making the return journey. Spend a day at nearby Whinlatter Forest Park. Walk through the enchanting woodland trails or hire mountain bikes to explore on 2 wheels. Adrenaline junkies will love the Go Ape High Ropes course, or why not walk an alpaca for something a little bit different?!
Walk, cycle, or catch the launch (nearest jetty about 1 mile away) into Keswick. In the summer months a Stagecoach bus runs a circular route from Keswick down Borrowdale, over Honister Pass to Buttermere, onto Whinlatter and back to Keswick - in both directions. There is a stop for this bus at the bottom of Catbells, only a short walk from Fulwith. This is perfect for a long walk out in many directions and a ride back. Indulge in some retail therapy at the town's great selection of independent and outdoor shops. Take in a film at the family owned Alhambra cinema or catch a show at the renowned Theatre by the Lake. Head to Derwentwater for a day at, in or on the water. Enjoy a lakeside picnic, hire a rowing boat or catch a ride on the popular launch and let someone else do the hard work! Whatever you decide to do during your stay, Fulwith will be a wonderful home from home to retreat to.
