Hill Cottage is a delightful two bedroomed cottage for four people. You'll feel instantly at home as soon as you arrive at this welcoming cottage. There is ample parking and good turning space to the front. On the ground floor is a spacious and comfortable living-dining room. At one end of the room the sofas are gathered around the TV, perfect for a relaxing evening in, whilst at the other end of the room the dining table is positioned by the French doors to take full advantage of the lovely view out over the garden and beyond to Skiddaw. The kitchen/breakfast room is well equipped and there's also a handy cloakroom with hooks for coats and a WC with basin. The conservatory has a useful drying rack and tumble drier. Up the stairs on the first floor are the two bedrooms, a double and a twin, and the family bathroom. To the rear of the cottage is an informal garden. Set out over different levels, the raised patio leads down to the sloping lawn and makes the most of the stunning views of the surrounding fells.
Located in an enviable position on the edge of the popular village of Braithwaite, there's so much to see and do straight from the front door. Head to nearby Whinlatter Forest where you can explore the many woodland trails on foot or two-wheels. Adrenaline junkies will love the Go Ape High Rope course, or why not walk an alpaca for something a little bit different?! Scramble up Catbells for breathtaking views over Derwentwater before exploring the picturesque Newlands Valley, where Beatrix Potter's Tale of Mrs Tiggle-Winkle was set. Take a scenic drive over Newlands Pass down into Buttermere for a peaceful lakeside picnic or walk the Buttermere fells with Haystacks at the southern end – Wainwright’s favourite fell.
A five-minute drive from Braithwaite will take you into Keswick town centre where you'll find a great choice of outdoor and independent shops, as well as Booths supermarket. A trip to the recently refurbished Keswick Museum and Art Gallery is a must for anyone with an interest in local history, or have a game of crazy golf or pitch and putt. Take in a film at the family owned Alhambra cinema or a performance at the renowned and aptly named Theatre by the Lake. Close by are rowing boats for hire or the option of a cruise around Derwentwater on the hop-on/hop-off launch. However you decide to spend your time, Hill Cottage will be a welcome home from home to retreat to.
