A converted former hayloft dating back to 1776, this first-floor apartment offers views across open countryside. Sit on the private balcony and enjoy your surroundings after a day of exploring.

Located less than 6 miles from the market town of Keswick, where you will find a great selection of restaurants, independent shops, and cafes. Just 2 miles from Bassenthwaite and 6 miles from Derwentwater, enjoy kayaking or canoeing. Dodd wood is only 1.5 miles away, where you can enjoy a network of walking trails that lead to the summit for spectacular views across the Northern Lake. Explore the North Lakes on foot, by car or even hop on a bus, this is the perfect location to get out and about. Just 5 miles from Cat Bells and you have Skiddaw on your doorstep! Mirehouse and Gardens are well worth a visit on a nice day, less than 2 miles away, or visit Theatre by the Lake (6 miles) and take in a show.

This first-floor apartment is accessed via an external stone staircase up to the front door. Entering the property, you will find yourself in the open-plan lounge/kitchen area. The views from the lounge are breathtaking and the high ceiling with traditional beams gives you a sense of the age and history of this building. Relax on the comfy seating, read a good book, watch the TV or cook up a storm in the kitchen, which has an electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, and fridge with a freezer compartment. Off the lounge, there is a spacious twin bedroom (which can be made up as a super-king on request). Next door is the formal dining room where you can catch up over breakfast or a delicious evening meal and make plans for the days ahead. Head up the stairs from the dining room where you will find a mezzanine level that has a double bedroom. Heading back down to the first-floor level, off the lounge you will find a family bathroom with a free-standing bath, shower, and WC.

There is a small private balcony immediately in front of the lounge with bistro seating and a table and a communal garden on-site to enjoy. There is private parking for one car.

We had a lovely week at the loft. It was clean, well equipped and in a good location for exploring the northern lakes. Lovely views from the balcony, even spotted an Osprey! Owner/manager both very welcoming and informative about local walks and things to do. We walked a circular of Skiddaw from the cottage, Keswick is a ten minute drive. Little biRead moret of road noise from the a591 but otherwise no complaints! Hide

This is a lovely clean property, reasonablly priced with fantastic views. The location affords easy access to the A66, making it great for exploring the Northern lakes area. The area is quiet, thought there are two good places to eat nearby (Sun Inn and Raven Stone Mannor).
