This apartment enjoys a wonderfully tranquil location in the Lake District, with the stunning landscape of Skiddaw as a backdrop. The area around the apartment is perfect for enjoying scenic walks or mountain bike rides, whilst more adventurous visitors may like to hike to the summit of Skiddaw. Just a few miles north of the property, Bassenthwaite Lake is the most northerly lake in the region and is a popular destination for keen sailors. On the northern shore of the lake, the Lakes Distillery offers tasting tours and is also home to a bistro and a group of resident alpacas who visitors are able to handfeed. Two miles south of the property, the town of Keswick is a vibrant market town offering a good range of shops and eateries, as well as a museum, the intriguing Puzzle Place, and an indoor climbing centre.

Guests staying at this ground-floor apartment are in for a treat, as it has been lovingly maintained by the owners to create a stylish and comfortable retreat. Passing through the courtyard garden, guests enter the property through the conservatory, a peaceful spot to relax on the armchair and sofa and enjoy the views over the gardens. Double doors lead through to the lounge/diner, a spacious room which has been tastefully decorated, offering two inviting sofas from which guests can enjoy the warmth of the wood burner and a favourite programme or film on the Smart TV/DVD. A window seat is a great place to sit with a good book, whilst the dining table with its leather chairs is perfect for enjoying leisurely meals into the late evening. Moving through to the kitchen, guests will find a light-filled space with a contemporary feel to it, which is well-equipped offering an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, coffee machine, dishwasher and washer/dryer. The first of the property’s two bedrooms is a delightful king-size room which is accessed via three steps down and offers an en-suite bathroom with shower over bath and WC. The second bedroom is a charming twin room, which can be made up as a king-size on request at the time of booking. The shower room, close to the twin bedroom has a shower and WC.

Guests staying at the property enjoy access to the extensive shared gardens, which offer a magnificent amount of space comprising lawns and terraced seating areas. There is also a pond and a small stream which add pretty touches to the grounds. Please be aware that the pond is deep and unfenced and there are also some steep drops around the grounds, therefore children must be supervised at all times. There is off-road parking for two cars.

Good location, beautiful views from the gardens, only marred by a very large cherry picker parked outside the conservatory. Dustbins full when we arrived and not emptied all week. Inside large and comfortable lounge. Well stocked kitchen. Disappointed that had asked on 2 occasions for the 2nd bedroom to be made as a double and not done.

The cottage is set in probably one of the best locations in the Lake District with stunning views of Skiddaw & Catbells. Keswick is literally only a 5 mins drive, where there is everything you need to enjoy your stay. Derwent water is stunning and is free if you like paddle boarding or other water activities. The cottage itself is well equipped andRead more very clean there is free WiFi & access to plenty of DVD,s and books and games. The Pheasant inn (Keswick) excellent food & friendly staff. Hide

Garth Cottage is wonderful, it provided the perfect home from home for our Lake District stay. The location is tucked away and blissfully quiet, with amazing views and yet not even 10 minutes drive from Keswick. The property itself was everything we could have wished for, spacious, modern, very well equipped and comfortable. The location is a littlRead moree dark, lots of high trees but the lighting is very good and the conservatory is bright and airy. Beautiful terrace, pond and garden to sit by. Hide
