Scar Cottage is a handsome property on the lower slopes of Skiddaw. It occupies a privileged position in the much sought-after hamlet of Applethwaite with wide ranging views of Keswick, Derwentwater and the surrounding mountains.
This elegant cottage sleeps up to 8 people in 4 bedrooms, all of which enjoy lovely views of Grisedale Pike or Latrigg. The sitting room is beautifully decorated and has a super modern TV with 3D, HD and Internet.
Applethwaite is just below Skiddaw making it the perfect start place for an ascent of this magnificent mountain. There are plenty of gentler walks too, either on Latrigg for fine views, or down to Bassenthwaite Lake. Keswick is just a mile away and is a pleasant walk across the fields, passing safely beneath the A66.
Keswick is a busy market town, with plenty of choice when it comes to pubs and places to eat, and shops for outdoor equipment. For evening entertainment there is the grand red brick cinema or the renowned Theatre by the Lake.
