Set in the Borrowdale Valley, this cosy cottage has stunning views and a private patio with views over the fells and village, and is just a short walk to the village pub and tearooms.

This location offers the perfect base for keen walkers, cyclists, and lovers of the great outdoors. The market town of Keswick is just 6 miles away, well known as the adventure capital of the Lakes, and there is a great choice of outdoor instructors available to help you find your wild side just a short drive or bus ride away. Surrounded by fells the cottage is also just 3 miles from Derwentwater where you can hire kayaks, paddleboards, sailing, and rowing boats. The local area offers fishing, rock climbing, and water sports; it is a paradise for the outdoor enthusiast. Alternatively, take in the views from one of the stately Derwentwater launches – there are seven landing stages. Keswick has a lovely bustling atmosphere; enjoy the shops, take in a film, visit a museum or catch a play or concert at the wonderful Theatre By The Lake.

Enter the property into the hallway; there is a pretty twin bedroom to your left, and across the hallway is the family bathroom offering a walk-in shower and WC. As you head down the hall, you will find the bright and spacious country-style open-plan kitchen and dining room, with patio doors opening onto the private patio. The dining area offers seating for the whole family; it is a great sociable space to prepare dinner and make plans for your stay in the Lakes. The kitchen has everything you may need: a Smart TV, a slimline dishwasher, a washing machine, a full-size fridge/freezer, and an electric range-style cooker set in an alcove with an attractive beam. Leaving the kitchen and heading back into the hallway, there is a spacious double bedroom with lots of storage and built-in wardrobes. The lounge is next door and offers a great space to kick back, relax and enjoy a board game or movie together. There is a large corner sofa, a Smart TV, and a cosy wood burner.

We had a lovely short stay in the apartment. Fantastically located for hikers. There a is lovely farm shop where we picked up delicious lamb pasties for our lunch on both days just 50m from the door. Also sells eggs, emergency tins of soup and toothbrushes. For a proper shop Keswick has a couple of supermarkets. Also 100m or so from the bus route, Read moreso we walked over the top of catbells one day down into Keswick and then took the bus home. We would love to here stay again. Hide

Great cottage in a beautiful part of the Borrowdale valley. A real home from home with some really lovely touches, including welcome treats . You can see the effort and thought that has gone into the finish of this cottage.
