Property code: SZ399

Close to the heart of Keswick, this traditional stone-fronted Lakeland cottage offers light, welcoming and relaxing accommodation for families and friends exploring the stunning Derwentwater region.

Spend quality time with your nearest and dearest at this beautiful Lakeland cottage, less than 0.5 miles from the centre of Keswick. The property sleeps eight guests across four bedrooms and is perfect for groups of friends or large families. Whether you fancy a strenuous hike to the summit of Skiddaw, or a peaceful stroll along the shores of Derwentwater, you’ll find something to suit everyone. The town itself has a fantastic selection of independent shops and eateries, as well as many outdoor adventure companies to help you make the most of your time here. The cottage has a dining room with seating for everyone, so you can come together for dinner parties after a day of exploring. There’s also an enclosed patio area which is ideal if a four-legged companion is joining you.

Leave your walking boots in the entrance porch and head into the light and bright cottage, which is decorated in a contemporary style with neutral tones and stylish accessories. The spacious lounge has ample room for everyone to unwind, with three comfortable sofas arranged around a gas fire and ornamental fireplace; congregate to watch TV or chat about your day over a bottle of wine. The separate dining room is a sociable space, where you can dine as a group in the evening or enjoy family breakfasts together before a day of adventure. Heading upstairs, you’ll discover two chic double bedrooms, both decorated in cool tones to create a restful environment. The family bathroom is also on this floor. A shower room and the final two bedrooms – a double and a twin - are located on the second floor and offer fantastic views of the surrounding fells. As these bedrooms are set in the eaves, they have sloping ceilings, so watch out for the restricted head height. Relax outdoors in the enclosed patio, where you can sip your morning coffee at the table before heading out for a long hike or a day of retail therapy. Cyclists are welcome to store their bikes in the lockable outbuilding.

It’s easy to while away the hours at Derwentwater.

Very comfortable beds, nice linen and towels. Well equipped kitchen. No 5 stars for cleanliness as we found an unwashed saucepan in the cupboard and nail clippings on a bedroom table. It would have been nice to have had a spare bin bag in the kitchen and one or two dishwasher tablets for the first night. Overall a very nice place to stay with plentRead morey of room for 8 of us.

This cottage was the perfect location; near pubs, restaurants & walks and we managed to get out onto the water each day with ease. The cottage was smaller than we had anticipated but ample space nonetheless. The lounge sofas were adequate for a weekend stay but not the most comfortable. We had a few downsides of the property - it was not clean, theRead more gas fire did not work & the second shower had vlow pressure with the first shower on. These elements would need to be addressed for us to stay again. Hide
