You’ll also find yourself less than 1 mile from the shores of Derwentwater where boat trips and water sports are on offer.

Boasting a slate exterior which is traditional to the local area, this property is certain to wow you from the inside out. Five shallow steps lead from the pavement to the shared front door.

The bright kitchen has been fitted with a fridge, freezer, electric hob and oven, microwave, washing machine and dishwasher, along with a generous dining table for enjoying romantic meals together. A wood burner-effect electric fire is the focal point of the sitting room. Settle down in a cushy armchair or sofa to flick through the TV or delve into books left out to be enjoyed. Continue along the corridor to discover the king-size bedroom, a sumptuous space with stylish wooden furniture and plenty of storage. Completing the property is a contemporary en-suite bathroom with WC, luxurious waterfall shower and heated towel rail.

This was our third visit to this lovely one day bedroomed apartment. Ideally located, clean and with all the amenities. We stayed a week and enjoyed every single day. On our second day we returned to find no power in the apartment. A quick walk to the local office led to an electrician calling within 5 mins. Problem resolved quickly. Great customerRead more service follow up too and lovely response from owner. Highly recommended. Hide

We loved our long weekend in Keswick at the Athena, the apartment is perfect for a couple, it has been finished to a high standard, is clean and modern and has plenty of space. We would highly recommend if looking for a place to stay in Keswick, especially being just a short walk from the town centre. We will be back!

Perfect specious yet cosy apartment for 2 people. Beautiful furnished and decorated and a fabulous central location and managed to park outside all week. We have stayed in several apartments in Keswick over the years and this is definitely our favourite and will hopefully book again. Thank you.

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
