Outside is a small enclosed patio garden with secure outbuilding, a real bonus so close to the centre of Keswick, and there's plenty of on street parking nearby.
The bustling market town of Keswick has something for everyone. For those interested in local history, Keswick Museum and Art Gallery is a must, whilst families will love the famous Pencil Museum and the indoor climbing wall at Kong Adventure. There are a great choice of cafes, pubs and retaurants for anything and everything from light lunches to hearty meals and more fine dining. The independent and outdoor shops in the town centre are perfect for a spot of retail therapy.
Keswick is a haven for walkers and there are plenty of different options for all abilities, from lakeside strolls and woodland rambles to longer days out on the fell tops. Walk from the cottage to the mysterious Castlerigg Stone Circle or stroll down to Derwentwater, just 15 minutes away on foot. Why not pack a picnic and walk the circular 10 mile rouote around the lake? You can always hitch a ride on the launch if you don't fancy walking the whole way. Lace up your walking boots and head up local fell Latrigg for stunning views over the town. Experienced fell walkers can continue onto Skiddaw, England's fourth highest mountain, from here too. However you decide to spend your time in Keswick, Ratcliffe Cottage will be a welcome home from home to retreat to.
