Nestled in the jaws of the incredibly picturesque Borrowdale valley, Gratitude is a wonderfully well-equipped and comfortable cottage for eight people. It’s perfectly situated to make the most of all that the village of Grange has to offer, stunning views, a huge range of walks and cycle rides from the door and the crystal clear river Derwent running through. It’s also just a stone’s throw from the Borrowdale Gates Hotel should you need a little liquid refreshment after your long walks! It has versatile accommodation making it perfect for families, groups requiring twin bedrooms or parties needing some ground floor accommodation. This lovely cottage boasts calm, elegant decor throughout, wonderful views from all sides and has a delightful enclosed garden in which to enjoy a sunset glass of wine soaking up the tranquillity.
Grange is a jewel of a village at the south end of Derwentwater, lying at the point where the dramatic steep fell sides of Borrowdale open out to meet the lake. It has access to the highest fells, lying equidistant between the mighty peaks of Scafell Pike and Skiddaw and boasts a staggering array of lowland walks too. Just over a mile away from Gratitude you can catch one of the stately Derwentwater launches and enjoy the views from the water, alternatively why not pack a picnic and hire a kayak or canoe and explore the lake yourself to find a romantic spot to have your lunch? For the more adventurous souls why not head up Honister Pass at the head of the valley to try the wild and woolly Via Ferrata climbing route at Honister Slate Mine, not a jaunt for the faint hearted!
Gratitude lies just four miles from the Lake District’s adventure capital Keswick. This vibrant market town is a much loved Lake District destination and it’s easy to see why. It boasts a vast array of outdoor shops, cafes and pubs and a popular market on Thursdays and Saturdays. Added to this it has an art deco cinema and the beautifully situated Theatre by the Lake offering a varied programme of plays, comedy and live music throughout the year. Whether you're looking for a cottage for a cosy family gathering or the most perfect jumping off point for a walking holiday Gratitude fits the bill.
