Nestled in the northern reaches of the Lake District National Park next to the gently lapping shores of Bassenthwaite Lake, this gem of a property is the ideal retreat for groups of up to six guests. Your accommodation is an excellent base with its roaring wood burner and cosy interiors, perfect for relaxing evenings regaling stories and sipping wine.

Comfortable, impressive and brimming with history, the property once served as a Toll House in the 1820s and still retains much of its old-world charm, albeit with a contemporary twist. Wooden beams, warm decor and a dual aspect wood burner create a soothing ambience in the living space whether you are dining at the table or curling up on the sofas to watch a film. A large kitchen provides breakfast seating with a view and all the equipment and space needed to cook up a storm, or you can venture outside to dine alfresco in the pretty patio area with its BBQ and seating. There’s additional garden space and ample parking for three cars too. At bedtime, choose from three superb bedrooms, one of which boasts an en-suite shower room. Completing the property is a large family bathroom.

Wander down to the lake and prepare to be inspired by the spectacular backdrop of mountains and sparkling waters. Skiddaw looms in the distance challenging enthusiastic adventurers to scramble up to the summit, whilst Keswick 9.5 miles away is a treat for those keen to embrace the local vibe and sample some delicious fare. There are plenty of trails to explore on foot or by bike, perhaps even factoring in a visit to the nearby distillery 1.5 miles away to explore the visitors centre or enjoy a tipple over a meal in the bar and bistro.

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

Well appointed cottage in a good location with plenty to see and do in the area - this is by far the best part of the Lake District, in my opinion.

The cottage is in a very open area, by a main road, but perfect for walkers, but with 2 dogs, they cant be left in the garden area alone. And very fast traffic, quite scary sometimes

Loved this cottage! Myself, my teenage son, his two friends and our dog stayed here for three weeks (all keen bikers and walkers). It was spotless when we arrived and a cleaning team came twice as well! We also hired a hot tub for the patio (with permission) which was a joy. The cottage is in a good location being 15 mins from Keswick or CockermoutRead moreh, 10 min walk to the shore of Bassenthwaite, and 15 min to fells and forest park for biking and walks (plus public footpath 10yrds from the house) Hide

Adventure, memories and awe-inspiring natural beauty await you in the rugged, wild and unique Cumbrian Lake District where beautiful expanses of water merge with magical forests against a backdrop of dramatic mountains and fells.

This ancient land has been sculpted by time and nature and is the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first UK National Park to be awarded this outstanding accolade. Poets, writers and artists throughout the ages have been instinctively drawn here; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, to name a few. The attractions and the diverse landscape will not fail to charm the young and the young at heart, whether that be thrill-seeking activities you seek, pure and cathartic inspiration or simply just some relaxation, you will find it here.

Cycling, walking, canoeing, white-water rafting, flying, parachuting and ballooning are just some of the offerings for any level of adrenalin junky. Experience the glory of nature in the wild or in a setting such as the Predator Experience where you can walk with wolves and learn about the importance of conservation. For a complete day of family, enjoy treetop capers at Go-Ape in the Grizedale Forest.

Vibrant towns and villages are there to be discovered, be it by land or water. You can step back in time and enjoy a steamboat cruise on a lake or leisurely unearth the dynamic scene of contemporary art, culture and some of the best dining in the UK by foot, bus or car.

The National Park is an area of breath-taking beauty that will leave you spoilt for choice, refuelled and inspired. So much so that you’ll want to come back time and time again.
