Perfect for couples, this well-presented cottage with original features, modern comforts and a sunny garden is an ideal base for exploring Keswick and the surrounding Lake District National Park.
Set on a quiet lane close to Keswick’s lively marketplace, this cottage is just a short walk from the small town’s independent shops, pubs, theatre and cinema. A gentle 0.5-mile walk will bring you to Derwentwater’s shore, where an 8-mile circular walk or a 50-minute lake cruise can be enjoyed. Hop off the cruise at Ashness Gate for a walk up to Ashness Bridge and Surprise View high above the valley. Or alight at Lingholm to view the walled garden that inspired Beatrix Potter’s Mr McGregor’s garden before grabbing a bite to eat at the cafe. Beyond the lake, there is plenty to see and do including taking an underground tour at Honister Slate Mine or discovering ancient history at the mysterious Castlerigg Stone Circle.
Inside, this charming cottage for two boasts a tasteful blend of old and new. Rustle up romantic meals in the modern kitchen with its exposed beams and open-plan dining space. Here you will find a fan oven, ceramic hobs, washing machine and fridge/freezer. With a large sash window, tasteful decor and elegant furnishings, the lounge is a relaxing space for whiling away the evenings in front of the large Smart TV. A handy wet room with shower completes the ground floor. Heading upstairs, the king-size bedroom is light and airy with a feature fireplace and wonderful fell views. Also on this floor is a spacious bathroom with shower over the bath.
Outside, the cottage garden is a peaceful place to enjoy an al fresco drink surrounded by a white picket fence and mature shrubs. To the rear of the house is a designated parking space for one car.
