Riverdale is one of our NEW COTTTAGES!
Completely renovated and refurbished throughout to a superb standard, Riverdale is a stunning cottage for 6 people and 2 lucky dogs. The fabulous open plan kitchen-diner is spacious and filled with light, whilst the living room has a cosy wood burning stove. The luxurious family bathroom with deep freestanding bath and walk in shower is also on the ground floor. Up on the first floor are the three bedrooms with beautiful mountain views, and a modern shower room. As well as driveway parking for 2/3 cars, Riverdale has a delightfuly quiet front garden with stunning fell views and an enclosed rear garden with decking, shed for bikes and a lawn area.
Portinscale is a charming village with easy access to all the facilities in Keswick, rightly popular with all who visit. Derwentwater is a short walk from the house: explore the footpaths along the lakeshore or head into the woods by the Lingholm Estate, once a holiday residence of Beatrix Potter now a delightful cafe with walled garden. For those wishing to get on the water, Derwentwater's two marinas are within easy walking distance. Popular Catbells is a must and the view from the top is certainly worth the scramble. For a longer day out on the fell tops, why not head up Causey Pike or tackle the Coledale Horseshoe? The village has a friendly pub, The Farmers Arms, and a fantastic cafe, The Chalet Tea Rooms, perfect for some refreshments after all that exercise!
The bustling market town of Keswick is just a 5-minute drive or an easy 20-minute walk away. With a good selection of outdoor and independent shops, indulge in some retail therapy. A trip to the 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 in the park! Treat yourselves to an evening out; take in a film at the family owned cinema or take in a show at the renowned Theatre by the Lake. If you fancy heading slightly further afield, why not take a scenic drive through the Lakes to Grasmere, another charming Lakeland village that's certainly worth a visit.
