A great retreat for couples, groups or families looking to explore the Lakes, this delightful house is in the centre of Keswick, with local amenities on your doorstep.

With an array of independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants, Keswick is a bustling town located between Skiddaw and Derwentwater Lake. Spend an afternoon browsing the shops, or visit the swimming pool, climbing walls and crazy golf which provide fun for all the family. Known as the outdoor capital of the Lakes, Keswick is home to lots of adventure activity providers which offer sailing, mountain biking, kayaking and ghyll scrambling. Keen walkers and hikers can tick off a few Wainwrights and tackle Skiddaw and Blencathra, both within 7 miles. Explore the lovely gardens and parkland at Mirehouse and Gardens, 4.5 miles, whilst Wordsworth House, 13 miles, offers the chance for all ages to experience life in the 1770s. Travel 25 miles to The Solway Coast for a picnic on the beach and a seaside stroll.

Spacious and comfortable, local photography and well-chosen art creates a welcoming home from home. Enter via a glass sliding door into a spacious porch with plenty of space for boots and coats and continue to the main hallway. Bathed in light from an enormous bay window, the living room has beautiful views of mountain tops, surrounding fields and woodland. Three comfortable sofas are arranged around a wood burner-effect gas fire, perfect for chilly evenings relaxing with a movie on the Sky TV. Gather everyone for formal meals in the dining room, where French doors open to the rear patio. The L-shaped kitchen is equipped with five gas hobs, a double fan oven, a large integrated fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave and washer/dryer. There is also a Nespresso coffee machine – so don't forget to bring some coffee pods! The corner table is a lovely place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee while watching the visiting birdlife. There's a WC and further storage for boots and coats in a large, walk-in cupboard. Upstairs, the master bedroom has a super-king-size bed, two large built-in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. The double bedroom has a chest of drawers and hanging hooks for storage, while the twin bedroom can be made up as a super-king-size on request. The family bathroom has a bath and separate shower with a mixer shower and a drencher head for massaging away tired fell-walking muscles.

Outside, the rear garden has a patio and raised, perfect for picnics, ball games and making the most of the morning sunshine. A table and chairs allow for al fresco dining, sipping a glass of wine and enjoying the stunning mountain views as the sun sets. To the front, there is a lovely tiered garden with mature plants and shrubs. There is also off-road parking.

The cottage is clean, comfortable and well-equipped. The provision of soap and toilet rolls in the bathrooms is very helpful. There is a brilliant view of Skiddaw from the lounge and Keswick is within easy walking distance.

The house is well presented. Location is fantastic with a short walk into the centre of Keswick. Bike storage the description could be clearer as under the impression there was a bike shed rather than storing the bikes in the front porch. If there are more than 2 bikes this would cause an issue.

Spent a lovely New Year week at Highbank House. Great location, a short walk to the town centre, walks from the front door and parking for 3/4 cars. The house was clean, warm and had a large porch for coats and boots. We found the TV a bit small for those winter evenings watching movies. A great welcome pack with lots of Cumbrian treats including, Read moreBraithwaite Gingerbread, Tiffin from Cakes in the Lakes, Jam and Rum butter which we've never tried before-yummy!.
