Discover the ‘Adventure Capital of England’ in this charming cottage for two. Take advantage of the town’s many festivals and walking routes knowing you have a cosy hideaway to return to.

This characterful cottage is the perfect romantic bolthole for two. Quiet and secluded yet less than 500 metres from the centre of Keswick, there is plenty to do no matter what you feel like doing. Tuck into delicious meals at the many pubs and restaurants, or head to the quirky Derwent Pencil Museum or the Keswick Museum (0.5 miles) to broaden your horizons. Hire rowing boats to take out on Derwentwater (2 miles) or take a wander around Whinlatter Forest (5 miles). From your front door, challenge yourself to hikes up to Skiddaw (5 miles) or Blencathra (7 miles) for stunning views of the fells.

Step up through the front door of this pretty cottage and into a welcoming open-plan living area that feels light and airy yet retains a rustic feel. Curl up on the armchairs in front of the TV with the wood burner crackling, or sit on the window seat with a good book. The quaint kitchen area has a contemporary cottage style and has everything you need to cook up tasty meals as well as storage space and a washing machine. The dining table is perfect for two to enjoy hearty breakfasts before heading out onto the fells. Upstairs, a tranquil king-size bedroom awaits you; enjoy lie-ins in front of the TV or get ready at the dressing table by the window. The en-suite bathroom has a stylish look and has a walk in shower.

Accessed via the kitchen door, an enclosed patio gets lots of afternoon sun so is perfect for al fresco lunches or a nice hot drink after a long day out walking. There’s also a sink out here for washing muddy boots and paws so there’s no need to worry about walking mud through the cottage.

Another lovely stay at Butterfly Cottage. So central, so comfortable. Wine and beers on arrival much appreciated. Nice to see Keswick rising from the ashes after Covid. Ideal location and size for 2 plus a border collie.

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.
