Property code: 86245

A cosy retreat offering the perfect base for lovers of the great outdoors. Watch the sheep and lambs from your window in springtime.

Treat yourself to a romantic getaway with your nearest and dearest at this cute cottage in the pretty village of Rosthwaite. Set on a quaint complex of stone properties, this wonderful apartment sleeps two people in one bedroom and welcomes two canine companions – making it the ideal rural retreat for romantic couples. Spend your days hiking the Cumbria Way or cruising on Derwent Water, and your evenings rubbing shoulders with the locals in the village pub or enjoying intimate dinners in the apartment.

Step inside and you’ll find a small hall where you can store all of your outdoor gear. Kick off your boots and stroll through to the bright, open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. This lovely space boasts a beamed ceiling and fabulous views across the fields. Get busy in the kitchen and whip up a romantic meal for two, which you can enjoy in the dining area in front of the window. After dinner, crack open a bottle of wine in the shared garden, or snuggle up in front of the wood burner-effect electric fire in the lounge area. When the day is done, there’s a lovely king-size bedroom waiting for you down the hall.

Take a stroll to the quirkiest tourist attraction in the Lake District: The Bowder Stone (I mile). This huge rock is balanced improbably on one edge, and it’s been a big hit with tourists since Georgian times. Alternatively, make your way into Keswick and check out the artisan spirits and liqueurs on offer at the Spirit of Keswick Distillery (6.5 miles). Or head to Ambleside (22.5 miles) and challenge yourself to a hike up to Kirkstone Pass - the Lake District's highest pass.

Clean, modern bolthole in the most beautiful valley. Comfy bed & very well fitted out. Nice touches like a very practical boot area in entrance hall. Friendly pub about 30 seconds walk from front door.

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.
