An enchanting, traditional Lakeland cottage for two, sympathetically upgraded to offer bright, inviting accommodation, from an enviable position near Derwentwater and Keswick.
Soak up the magnificent scenery and the serenity of the setting from this exquisite, stone cottage in the heart of the Borrowdale Valley. Just 0.5 miles from Derwentwater and 1.5 miles from Keswick, it is well positioned for long walks through this central swathe of the Lake District National Park, including by the lake and through woodland to Ashness Bridge and Lodore Falls, 2 miles away. Head 5 miles to follow the famous, 3.5-mile long Catbells walk, with its impressive mountain and lake views; follow cycle routes in the area or hire boats and take part in water sports activities, approximately 3 miles from the cottage. Go shopping and dine out in Keswick and take time to see the historic Castlerigg Stone Circle, 3 miles away.
Step into the attractive home, which is next to the owner’s house, to find yourself in the inviting open-plan kitchen/dining room. This is where the two of you can prepare tasty, home-cooked feasts, while taking in the impressive vistas. The kitchen has an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with freezer compartment and dishwasher and microwave. There is also a washer/dryer in the utility room. Set the table and dine together in this bright space or carry breakfast, lunch and dinner out into the fresh air on warm days. Return home after exhilarating days out to relax in the lounge, which also has beautiful views. Settle in here on the sofa to watch the flat screen TV or a DVD. As the day draws to a close, make your way into the super king-size bedroom, which can also be arranged as twins upon request. Wake up in here the following morning to take in the leafy outlook over a cup of tea. The bathroom at the cottage features a bath, with shower above, WC and handbasin.
You can choose between two patios to take in the sweeping vistas and watch for wildlife, including red squirrels, among the trees. There is ample parking available.
