The old Keswick-Threkeld railway line path is moments away from the property with lots of walks right from the doorstep. At Whinlatter Forest (5 miles), why not Go Ape, hire bikes and explore the forest trails. Walk the shore path around Derwentwater and visit Theatre by the Lake (1 mile).

As you enter the property you will find yourself in the hallway, where you will find storage for coats and boots. There is an open-plan lounge, kitchen and dining room with views over the pretty enclosed garden, with trees and the river in the distance. The lounge offers a great space to relax and unwind with comfortable sofas, a log-burner style electric fire, Smart TV and a digital Bluetooth radio. Enjoy a good book or make plans for the days ahead. You can look forward to breakfast or an evening meal with doors open to the garden on a summer's day. The kitchen is well equipped with an electric hob and oven, fridge, freezer, Krups coffee machine, microwave, dishwasher and integrated washer/dryer. Head back into the hallway and up the stairs to the first floor, here you will find two bedrooms with views over the garden and river. There is a king-size and twin and a family bathroom with shower and WC.

Outside, there is an enclosed garden with a lawn and patio area with seating to enjoy al fresco dining.
