Spacious ground-floor apartment set in the pretty Borrowdale Valley, just 3 miles from Derwentwater. Lovers of the outdoors will be in their element here – a complete getaway from day-to-day life.

Rosthwaite is one of the tiny hamlets that make the Borrowdale Valley so special. Situated only 6 miles from the market town of Keswick which has a great selection of local amenities and shops, the village is surrounded by lovely views and the property is a gentle 300-metre stroll from the local pub. This location makes a great base for keen walkers and cyclists. There are a host of activities available locally such as walking the magnificent fells, archery, abseiling, scrambling, climbing, and water sports. If you are seeking a more relaxing time, enjoy a leisurely cruise across Derwentwater just 3 miles away, hire a rowing boat or enjoy a show or play at the Theatre by the Lake.

As you enter the shared entrance into the hallway of this impressive and welcoming house, you will find your private entrance on the ground floor. Entering the apartment into the hall, you will find the open-plan lounge, kitchen and dining area to the left. It offers a great space to prepare a romantic meal together or watch a movie on the Smart TV in the lounge area. You will find some relaxing sofas and an electric wall-mounted fire, and there is also a dining table for two. The kitchen is well equipped with an electric oven and hob, a small fridge with a freezer compartment, and a microwave. Down the hallway from the lounge is the pretty double bedroom and a bathroom with a shower over the bath and a WC.

Heading outside, in front of the house, there is a shared garden with seating overlooking the Borrowdale Valley and fells. There is private parking for one car in the small car park within walking distance. You can park at the front of the house to unload and load your car. The village pub, restaurants, shop, and tearoom are just 300 metres from the property.

Very pleasant location. Nicely furnished flat and beautiful garden. The shortcomings were basically lack of laundering facilities and no tv instructions. We would definitely stay there again. Ann Emmons

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at Kiln How in 9 years. It is the perfect location for walking, once you have all your provisions you don't need to get in your car again till it's home time. There is a regular bus that runs through the valley. There are 2 pubs at the end of the drive, unfortunately at this time one was being renovated and the oRead morether only serving drinks. Accommodation cosy and has everything you need. Hide

Property was spotless on arrival, and the gratis bottle of wine greatly appreciated. The grounds, too, well maintained and tidy. A ground floor one-bedroom flat, it was just enough for two people looking to explore this extra-lovely part of the Lake District, as well as within reasonable driving distance to pretty much everywhere else.

A great location and a nice place to stay, well kept, with essentials provided. Whilst it is a dog-friendly place, this didn't suit us so well but will no doubt suit others. The management was responsive to queries.
