Green Gables is a fantastic retreat for up to 6 people. Laid out over 3 floors, the accommodation is spacious and well presented. On the ground floor you’ll find the lovely living-dining room, kitchen and useful utility room with handy WC. Up on the first floor are 3 of the 4 bedrooms and the first of the 2 bathrooms. The fourth bedroom is up on the second floor, along with the modern shower room. Outside is an enclosed rear yard with garden furniture and a useful bike store.
Located just a short walk from the centre of Keswick but still with plenty of fantastic walking opportunities from the doorstep, you really have got the best of both worlds at Green Gables. Indulge in some retail therapy, enjoy lunch at one of the town’s quirky independent café, or take in a show at the renowned Theatre by the Lake. A trip to Keswick Museum and Art Gallery is a must for anyone with an interest in local history, or head to the famous Pencil Museum, sure to be a hit with the whole family.
Why not leave the car and head out to explore on foot? There are plenty of walks to suit everyone nearby. Head up local fell Latrigg, the bench near the summit offers a perfect place to rest and take in the stunning views. Serious hikers can continue onwards and upwards from here up Skiddaw, England’s fourth highest mountain. Pack a picnic and enjoy the scenic 10 mile circular route around beautiful Derwentwater. If you’d prefer to be closer to the water, why not hire a rowing boat, try paddle boarding with one of the local adventure companies or hitch a ride on the launch and let someone else do the hard work for you!
