If you're looking for stylish yet comfortable accommodation that's just a short walk from the centre of Keswick, then you're sure to be quite taken with Meadow Cottage, a beautifully presented mid-terrace Lakeland stone cottage. The living room is light, bright and airy thanks to its feature bay window, and the fabulous modern dining kitchen is perfect for whipping up a feast or catching up round the dining table. Also on the ground floor is a handy utility room and a luxurious bathroom, complete with a shower over the bath. On the first floor you'll find two of the three bedrooms: the gorgeous master king size with ensuite shower room, and a lovely bedroom with three-quarter width bed. Up another flight of stairs to the second floor and the cosy attic twin. To the rear of the property is a delightful garden, with stunning views and outdoor furniture, you're sure to enjoy dining al fresco out here.
With the centre of Keswick a few minutes' walk away, you're perfectly placed for exploring everything that this bustling market town has to offer. Enjoy a spot of retail therapy before stopping for lunch at one of the many independent cafes on offer. Stroll through Fitz Park to Keswick Museum and Art Gallery, a must for anyone with an interest in local history. Why not take in a film at art deco Alhambra cinema or a play at the aptly named Theatre by the Lake? Fancy a night off from cooking? Enjoy a hearty meal at one of the town's traditional pubs, The Pheasant is just round the corner from the cottage, or treat yourselves to some fine dining at Morrell's restaurant on Lake Road.
For fresh air and interesting walks, you're spoiled for choice! Head up Latrigg straight from the front door. Take a picnic and enjoy the view from the top - the panoramic views over the town are certainly worth the effort! If you're feeling fit and strong then continue onwards from here up Skiddaw, England's fourth highest mountain. Derwentwater is the perfect place to enjoy a day by (or on) the water. Hire a canoe or rowing boat and take to the water - or hitch a ride on the launch and let someone else do the hard work as you cruise round the lake. After something a bit more adrenaline fuelled? Sign up for an activity with one of the local adventure companies; try ghyll scrambling, canyoning or the via ferrata.
