Enjoy a romantic getaway for two in charming Keswick with this stylish town-centre bolthole in the heart of the picturesque Lake District National Park.

Right in the centre of Keswick, this cosy cottage for two is just steps from the town’s array of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. Also boasting a museum, cinema, theatre and climbing wall, there is no shortage of things to do on rainy afternoons in this thriving market town. In dry weather, however, there is no better place to be than beautiful Derwentwater. Stay on dry land to enjoy a lakeside picnic or hop on and off the regular launch service to discover the many fascinating sights including the waterfall at Lodore, Surprise View at Ashness Gate and Beatrix Potter’s walled garden at Lingholm. Beyond the lake lie miles of excellent walking and cycling opportunities, from Skiddaw and Catbells to Whinlatter Forest, all just 5 miles away.

This traditional Lakeland cottage has been tastefully modernised and updated in April 2022 to provide a spacious, open-plan and modern accommodation that’s ideal for romantic retreats. Prepare tasty meals for two in the kitchen area, while your companion enjoys a glass of wine at the breakfast bar. This compact yet cleverly designed space is fitted with an electric oven, gas hob, fridge and microwave together with all the essentials. After dinner, curl up on the sofa to relax and unwind in front of the Smart TV while the flame effect electric fire creates a cosy atmosphere. Upstairs, the double bedroom is spacious and inviting with calming neutral decor, a metal-framed bed, wall-mounted TV for lazy mornings and plenty of storage space for making yourselves at home. Also, on the first floor is a clean and bright tiled bathroom with a shower over the bath - perfect for soothing tired muscles after long walks.

There is on-street parking within a short walk of the cottage.

Nice little cottage ideal for couple and in prime location for all amenities in Keswick. We had our 2 yr old terrier and missed outdoor yard/garden space but had good week with lots of walking. No parking at cottage but we booked months permit 28 for long stay car park 2 mins away.

Great location,needs curtains as overlooked and would help with all the droughts as the cottage was freezing.Needs completely updating as pictures make it look beautiful very misleading in real life.

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.
