The cottage is set in a peaceful location, yet it’s just a 600-metre walk through Fitz Park to the bustling centre of Keswick. It is a great base to explore the Lakes on foot, by bike, car or bus. The town is surrounded by mountains, Skiddaw and Blencathra, and is located between Derwentwater (1 mile) and Bassenthwaite Lake (4 miles). The old Keswick-Threkeld railway line path is moments away from the property with lots of walks right from the doorstep. At Whinlatter Forest (5 miles), why not Go Ape, hire bikes and explore the forest trails. Walk the shore path around Derwentwater and visit Theatre by the Lake (1 mile). The Mountain Festival, usually held in May or June, offers three days of world-class sports, outdoor activities, talks and films with live music taking place in and around the town.

As you enter the property you will find yourself in the hallway, where you will find storage for coats and boots. There is an open-plan lounge, kitchen and dining room with views over the pretty enclosed garden, with trees and the river in the distance. The lounge offers a great space to relax and unwind with comfortable sofas, a log-burner style electric fire, Smart TV and a digital Bluetooth radio. Enjoy a good book or make plans for the days ahead. You can look forward to breakfast or an evening meal with doors open to the garden on a summer's day. The kitchen is well equipped with an electric hob and oven, fridge, freezer, Nespresso coffee machine, microwave, dishwasher and integrated washer/dryer. Head back into the hallway and up the stairs to the first floor, here you will find two bedrooms with views over the garden and river. There is a king-size and twin and a family bathroom with shower and WC.

Outside, there is an enclosed garden with a lawn and patio area with seating to enjoy al fresco dining. There is also a small, pretty front garden with a bench for relaxing and watching the world go by. There is unrestricted residents’ parking just a few metres from the house or you can park one car in front of the owner’s garage which is approximately 25 metres away.

This is a very well presented cottage and in a very good location easy to pop into Keswick strolling through the park on the way. Access out of the garden to the riverside area. Thoroughly recommended

This house has been done up to top standards, and had all the equipment we needed for a week, even a bbq which was great. It is in a quiet road and we were always able to get on road parking. The garden is secure for a dog and the gate out the back leads to walks and the river. The location to Keswick is perfect, just a beautiful 10 min walk to theRead more town. I'd find the house a bit small if 4 adults were staying but as we are 2 adults it was perfect, would also suit 2 adults and 2 kids fine. Hide

A lovely holiday home in a perfect location. Just a few minutes walk into Keswick through the park and then down to the lake. The home was superbly equipped, warm and comfortable. Looking forward to our next stay!

This is a lovely, comfortable little house in a beautiful location. Walking from the door is easy making Keswick town centre and the many facilities of Fitz Park just minutes away. Going via the old railway line path behind the house also means that longer walks and more challenging climbs up Latrigg and even Skiddaw can be accessed without a car.

Superb cottage, pure luxury from the moment you arrive, beautifully presented with everything you would need. You couldnt get a better location, with access to the river and footpaths from the back garden, beautiful park nearby and easy walk into the town. Thank you for the very generous welcome goodies!

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
