Lakeland stone property located in the pretty village of Rosthwaite in Borowdale Valley, this is the perfect hideaway to get away from it all and explore the Lakes and Fells.

Escape for a romantic break at this lovely first-floor apartment in a complex of pretty stone properties in the village of Rosthwaite. Sleeping two people in one bedroom and welcoming two canine companions, it’s the ideal romantic retreat if you’re looking for a fabulous village apartment that you can use as a base for exploring the natural wonders of the Barrowdale Valley. Spend your days cruising around Derwentwater, and your evenings sipping a glass of wine in the enclosed shared garden.

This welcoming first-floor apartment is accessed through a shared hallway and a staircase. Step inside and make your way to the compact kitchen area, which opens up onto the lounge. Whip up a romantic meal for two and enjoy an intimate dinner at the table in the living area. After dinner, snuggle up on the sofa in front of the TV, or make your way to the shared garden to sip a glass of something cool and crisp as you soak up the views of the fells. At the end of the day, there’s a spacious double bedroom to retire to. In the morning you’ll wake up to pretty village views.

Head to Keswick (6.5 miles) and hop on a cruise of Derwent Water. You’re sure to love the views of Skiddaw, Catbells and the ‘Jaws of Borrowdale’. Alternatively, head to Ambleside (22.5 miles) and challenge yourself to a hike up to Kirkstone Pass - the Lake District's highest pass. Be aware though - the road from Ambleside to the top is called ‘The Struggle’ for good reason. When you get to the top, treat yourself to a well-earned pint at the Kirkstone Pass Inn - England's third highest pub.

A cosy one bedroom apartment on first floor. Great location surrounded by fields and on a bus route to Keswick, Buttermere and access to linked bus routes. . Lovely walks all around area and just a few miles to Derwent Water and National Trust car parks.

Brilliant location, very comfy apartment, clean, ideal size for a couple plus baby and dog. Private garden is ideal. Only issues were parking (not enough spaces by the main complex and not allocated) and sound proofing to the downstairs apartments.

This cottage is in a wonderful location especially for walkers. Views are amazing and there is a small shared garden area. Regular bus services including open top buses operate from the cottage door. There are places to eat close by including the wonderful Yew Tree Cafe. Shopping can be obtained in Keswick. The bathroom, kitchen and bedroom are allRead more fine for two but the lounge is rather cramped. Wifi reception is not secure throughout the flat and phone reception for us was poor. 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.
