Rose Cottage (Keswick) is a traditional terraced cottage in a quiet location just a few minutes walk from the vibrant centre of Keswick. This cosy little cottage sleeps three people in two bedrooms sharing a family bathroom. The living room has an open fire perfect for winter evenings in, so grab a book off the shelf, take a seat on the sofa and make yourself at home. Upstairs is a spacious and pretty double bedroom plus a small single overlooking the communal garden; both bedrooms have views over the surrounding streets with glimpses of the fells over rooftops. The kitchen is small but perfectly formed with everything on hand you could need; though with Keswick's range of eateries so close at hand it may be tempting just to eat out! Rose Cottage (Keswick) makes a lovely retreat for a couple looking for a hideaway in the centre of Keswick.

Being in a quiet back street yet within a short walk of the town centre gives Rose Cottage (Keswick) an enviable location and the best of both worlds. Keswick is a small market town which punches well above its weight with a good variety of attractions and amenities all within walking distance. The town centre contains a huge variety of places to eat and a good range of independent shops to browse around. There are walks a-plenty starting from the town or take advantage of the regular local buses to take you to an alternative start point. The beautiful Derwentwater makes for a lovely evening shoreline stroll or make a day of it and take a boat on the lake, everything from the scheduled launch service to a canoe or rowing boat are available to get you out on the water. If the weather is not so kind there are a range of indoor activities and attractions to choose from, the Keswick Museum, Pencil Museum and the Puzzling Place all offer something a bit quirky to interest all ages or take in a film at the cinema or a show at Theatre by the Lake.

Keswick is the hub of the northern Lake District and a perfect place from which to explore this beautiful area. Head over one of the passes to Buttermere and enjoy some amazing views on the way and a farmhouse ice cream when you arrive. The short walk down to the lake from the village is suitable for all and the views across the water to Fleetwith Pike and Haystacks are stunning. For a literary fix take a drive, or a bus, along the A591 down to Grasmere and visit Dove Cottage and the associated Wordsworth museum to learn more about this influential figure. If you want a change of scene head up to Hadrian's Wall country, where the wall takes you across some wild territory with wide ranging views as you discover more about Roman Britain at the key sites. An hour's drive will take you to Carlisle, an attractive and compact city ideal for exploring on foot, don't miss the beautiful sandstone cathedral.
