Stunning garden apartment sleeping four guests, set within extensive grounds, enjoying a breath-taking location under the shadow of Skiddaw and only two miles from the town of Keswick.

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.

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

A nice quite, spacious and well fitted-out property in a very pleasant location. While the view from the communal garden is amazing, as the property is round the side of the main building, the view from inside (and natural light) are a little limited.

Garth Cottage is in fact part of the ground floor of a larger property, but do not let that deter you.

We had a lovely stay and this place is ideally located for the Carl Side route up Skiddaw and easy access to lots of other lakes and highlights. The cottage is well appointed, in particular the kitchen and there was everything we needed. Comfy beds and lots of places to sit and relax after a busy day exploring. The one thing that was not clear to uRead mores was that we had misunderstood that this was an annex to one main house inhabited by a family but actually it is one of many cottages and apartments.

This was our second time at Garth Cottage and we stayed for 2 weeks this time with our 6 month baby and the grandparents. Its such a wonderful place in terms of location and style and we felt very comfortable there. There are a couple of little things that need a bit of maintenance. Well be back again in the future.

It could have been a great place to stay had we not had some issues which spoiled it for us. Access issues, heating problems, unusable conservatory, cleanliness of the bedrooms, a sparsely equipped kitchen.

Garth Cottage is in a spectacular place and is a beautiful property. We loved our visit and would go back in a heartbeat. The grounds of the house are wonderful.

The location of Garth Cottage is wonderful. I think that the sitting room was the original billiards room when it was a grand house, so it is very spacious! The cottage is very comfortable with everything you could need and we would certainly return again.
