Situated in the pretty village of Grange-in-Borrowdale, How Cottage offers comfortable self catering holiday accommodation for 5 people.
This terraced cottage has stunning views of the Lake District mountains from every window and a garden that is the perfect place to relax in after a day on the fells. The village boasts two tearooms, next door is Grange Cafe and Grange Bridge Tea Room with its pretty garden on the river is only a few steps further. There are two beautiful slate churches too, both lovely to sit inside for a few moments of quiet contemplation. There are plenty of pubs in the neighbouring villages, the nearest being the Riverside Bar at the Scafell Hotel in Rosthwaite.
Rosthwaite has a delightful tea room called The Flock Inn which also serves as the village shop. Borrowdale is a wonderful starting point for hundreds of walks – either on the mountain tops or along the bottom of the valley. You may find that you can walk all week, from Grange, without feeling the need to use your car.
How Cottage is only 10 minutes drive from all the facilities of the bustling market town of Keswick, but why drive when you can take the Derwentwater Launch for an altogether more leisurely journey. There is also a regular bus service to Keswick that loops around Derwentwater, another service takes the longer route route over Honister Pass and past Buttermere. Keswick offers an unsurpassed range of outdoor shops, pubs, restaurants and cafés. By day, Keswick is the ideal starting point for walkers and climbers, as well as those who want to potter the cobbled Market Place. By night there is a cinema, or the famous Theatre by the Lake, which puts on plays, shows and concerts all year round.
