Escape the hordes of walkers which tend to congregate in the central fells and book one of our Braithwaite cottages, located in a small village at the base of the Whinlatter Pass just two miles from Keswick.
Step out from your Braithwaite cottage and discover some of the finest walking routes in the region. Barrow Fell, Causey Pike and the Coledale Horseshoe, just a few possibilities and all favourite haunts of Wainwright, legendary writer who spent his life walking the Lakeland fells. Expect deep valleys framed by majestic peaks, offering splendid views in every direction. A spectacular viewpoint not-to-miss is Noble Knott, with panoramic vistas over Bassenthwaite Lake and the market town of Keswick.
Kick off those boots and enjoy refreshments in a welcoming pub - you'll find a couple of good eating and drinking establishments in the village. Other amenities include a well-stocked general store selling all kinds of ingredients, whether you fancy a tasty sausage supper in your Braithwaite cottage or a gourmet packed lunch by a lake.
Nearby attractions include the Whinlatter Visitor Centre, featuring a mountain forest crisscrossed with walking and mountain biking trails, plus other activities like Go Ape. Learn about the region's industrial past at Force Crag Mine, restored by the National Trust. Or enjoy a little culture at Keswick's lovely Theatre by the Lake, its breathtaking setting fit to rival any top entertainment venue in the country!
If this sounds like your kind of holiday, now is the time to take a look at our Braithwaite cottages.
