Occupying a central location within the Lake District National Park, this exquisite cottage is ideal for families or groups of friends as it has it all: unbridled views of the fells, stunning wildlife and lakeside tranquillity.
Wander down to the shores of Derwentwater with your family and friends or simply bask in the sunshine and lose yourselves in the enchanting views. Set less than 50 metres from a private beach and with woodland gardens that reach right down to the banks, this Lake District holiday home is nothing short of idyllic. Sleeping up to eight guests, as well as one delighted dog, the four-bedroom property is situated near Little Town, approximately 3.5 miles from the vibrant hub of Keswick. From this beautiful base, venture out on walks beside the lake and across the fells. Take a cruise on Derwentwater from Lodore, approximately 1.5 miles away. Head into Keswick to hire your own boat or for members of your party to try their hands at canoeing, kayaking or even paddleboarding.
Climb the steps and open the door to your holiday home to find ample space for your large party. Head straight into the utility room to leave shoes and other outerwear where there’s a handy washing machine and tumble dryer. A ground-floor shower room, with WC, is also here. Wander on into the reception hall and through to the light-filled lounge. Stoke up the wood burner on chilly days, relax on the soft seating and make the most of your time together to play games, discuss your day and plan the next adventure. Make your way through to the kitchen when mealtimes beckon to find another fabulous space, which is filled with natural light. Prepare fantastic feasts for your group with the tasty produce you have shopped for in Keswick, then dine together by the great windows, gazing out at your surroundings. Open the doors here on to the garden on sunny days. Choose between four beautiful bedrooms when it is time to head off for the night. These include three doubles and a bunk bedroom. There is also a family shower room and bathroom. Spill out in to the glorious gardens at every opportunity. Admire the many woodland blooms, watch out for wildlife and paddle in the stream or lake, keeping an eye on children. Sit outside with a glass of wine as the sun goes down and the clear night skies appear above you. Find parking for up to four cars at the cottage.
