A warm welcome to Slate Knoll which is beautifully maintained by it's owners Isobel & Alison. A charming first floor apartment for four in the heart of the much-loved Lakeland town of Keswick. With a spacious modern feel about the place, two lovely bedrooms with flexible accommodation (the second bedroom has a zip and link bed which can be made up either as a king size or twin), and glorious views over the town to the fells beyond it makes an ideal base for a family or friends to explore this wonderful area.
Keswick is a jewel in the northern Lake District's crown situated on the shores of picturesque Derwentwater. It's a delightful market town boasting its own art deco cinema and beautifully situated theatre. Slate Knoll could scarcely be better placed to enjoy all of this with plenty of eateries offering excellent local food, a vast range of outdoor shops and a wonderful choice of independent shops right on the doorstep. There's also a twice weekly market in the town adding to its charming atmosphere. Families are very well served in the town with indoor climbing walls, several parks, award winning museums and a leisure pool with huge slide all within easy walking distance.
Not only is Slate Knoll ideal if you want to make the most of the town but it's perfect for exploring the unparalleled natural surroundings. The town is well known for being the Lake District's adventure capital boasting a vast array of adrenaline fuelled activities in the great outdoors for visitors to sample. If you're hoping to don your walking boots then you could scarcely be better placed as there are numerous walks from the door including the Derwentwater Walk, Latrigg, Walla Crag or the ancient Castlerigg Stone Circle. Or should you be ready for a bigger adventure then Skiddaw, one of England's mountain giants, stands guard over the town. Alternatively hop on board one of the Keswick launches less than half a mile from the door to lap up the glorious scenery from the water. The bus stop is only 50yards from the property so you needn't touch that car again should you feel the need explore the wider area!
