Situated in a small hamlet just outside of Keswick, surrounded by Lakeland fells, fabulous scenery and walks from your door, while lots of local amenities are close by.

Surrounded by beautiful Lakeland fells, this traditional stone house sits just 3 miles outside Keswick. Located between Skiddaw and Derwentwater, this property sleeps five people over two bedrooms and welcomes two canine companions. It’s the ideal accommodation option for small families or groups of friends who want to get away from it all to explore the Lake District. Spend your days kayaking around Derwentwater, and your evenings sitting on the patio soaking up the views of the fells and fields.

Start your day with a coffee on the raised patio area to the side of the house. This is the perfect place to plan your day ahead and, if you have your canine companions with you, they can safely run free because the outdoor space is enclosed. After a day scaling the heights of Skiddaw, come home and store all your outdoor gear in the handy storage area off the contemporary kitchen. Cook up a storm for your loved ones, and then get them all together to eat around the table in the living room/diner. After dinner, sink into a sofa and watch your favourite TV shows as your sleepy pups stretch out in front of the wood burner. When you can’t keep your eyes open any longer, head up to the first floor and you’ll find two lovely bedrooms to choose from.

There’s a great 1.5-mile hike up Latrigg that starts at Applethwaite (1 mile). Pack a picnic and make the most of those amazing views. If you’re looking for something a little more adventurous, head to Keswick Extreme (4 miles) and arrange a Via Ferrata mountain experience. At the end of the day, make your way into Keswick (3 miles) and order yourself some Cumberland sausages for dinner in one of the welcoming gastropubs.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

There is a lovely sitting area outside which gives a fantastic view of the hills, the house is set a little way up on the hills with Skidaww right behind you the area is so peaceful and quiet.

Dancing Beck is a very comfortable property in which to spend a holiday in Cumbria. The living areas feel spacious and the property has great views from the front. It is at the foot of Skiddaw which you can walk from your front door. The beds are very comfortable and both rooms have ensuite bathrooms. The kitchen is well equipped. The utility room Read moreis large enough and warm enough to dry waterproofs etc if the weather has been wet. It is in a great location and the wooden gazebo was well used. 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.
