Downside was not being able to get in till 5.00 and noise from Apartment above. Positive side was good sized rooms, cleanliness very good, location very good for access into Keswick. Designated parking a plus. Had to keep blinds closed in lounge for privacy as next to rear entrance door Would recommend and would book again

The apartment is furnished really well with a large living area, and Bosch appliances in the fabulous kitchen. We loved the huge, comfy bedroom. Things myself and my daughter also appreciated: -the lovely king sized bed.Read more -the huge bath, fantastic to soak in after walking for miles. -the big drying cupboard for our soaking clothes. Thanks! Hide

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.
