If you’re looking for a quiet place to stay with great amenities nearby, then Lower House, Lord’s Seat, is the place for you. You can sit indoors or outdoors, disengaged from the modern world and unobserved by it. The views of the Lake District mountains are glorious and the apartment is a superb base to plan which walks you might like to take next, as well as a comforting home to return to after a day on the fells.
The busy market town of Keswick with all it has to offer is only a mile and a half away. You can walk there along the road, or on one of the many paths cutting through the village. There is plenty of choice when it comes to pubs and places to eat, and shops for outdoor equipment. By the lake you can hire a rowing boat or take a trip on the launch. For evening entertainment there is the Alhambra Cinema, over 100 years old yet offering contemporary films and comfort or the renowned Theatre by the Lake.
Applethwaite itself is a little village, facing South and getting the best of the sunshine. From the front door there are countless walks. A favourite is up Latrigg (which has more fantastic views of Keswick and the surrounding fells for minimal effort), and to mighty Skiddaw beyond, one of the Lake District’s highest mountains. If something a little more stately is required why not take a gentler stroll around the beautiful grounds of nearby Mirehouse where you can choose from formal gardens, a wild flower meadow, a heather maze, a rhododendron tunnel, poetry walk and four adventure playgrounds in the woods. All in all, Lower House, Lord’s Seat, is an ideal jumping off point for all that the Lake District has to offer.
For larger parties, Lower House, Lord's Seat, can be booked with Upper House, Lord's Seat (sleeping 6).
