Situated in the small village of Grange, this lovely little property is perfect for an escape from modern life. Surrounded by a beautiful garden, and beyond that a beautiful landscape, entering Westrigg is like stepping back to a slower time and you will feel instantly relaxed in the peaceful atmosphere. The bungalow is cosy and welcoming with a coal fire for winter evenings. The rooms are well equipped, spacious and light with views across the gardens to the fells. The gardens themselves are a labour of love for the owner and full of wildlife as well as flowers. There is no WiFi, so you will have the perfect excuse to switch off from the world and really get away from it all!
Westrigg is located in the pretty, bustling and compact village of Grange-in-Borrowdale. Small it may be, but there is a licensed cafe and a hotel serving meals to non-residents within a few minutes’ walk so you will not go hungry! The walking from here is nothing short of glorious: low-level walks lead along the River Derwent to Rosthwaite or across to Derwentwater, whilst fell walkers can enjoy car free access to Grange Fell, Castle Cragg and Maiden Moor to name but a few. A good bus service means that Keswick and Buttermere are easy to reach and there are many opportunities for linear walks using either the bus or the launch on Derwentwater.
Keswick is a bustling market town, hub of the northern lake district and home to a wide variety of shops, eateries and tourist attractions. Derwentwater is the jewel in Keswick’s crown offering beautiful views whether you are on the shore, sailing its waters or climbing the surrounding fells. Keswick is all about the outdoors but also provides opportunities for those in search of a more cultural experience; why not take in a show at the Theatre by the Lake followed by a meal in their lake view restaurant or visit the traditional family run cinema to see a film followed by fish and chips in the market square? There is also an award winning museum for all ages.
Westrigg is perfectly located for exploring this beautiful landscape whether you are a first timer or know it like a local and, when you have had enough for the day, it will welcome you back to its tranquil haven.
