    “Lovely property with bedroom, lounge and bathroom recently updated, but kitchen looking a bit shabby.”

    The terrace needs a real tidy up and weeding. If we’d been in more with bad weather I’d have done some. Very very strong detergent smell lingering on all the bedding- we’ve booked to go again and will take our own! Excellent location for the buses. Main road location but very quiet inside. Front door extremely squeaky.

The property

This deluxe and spacious, ground floor apartment is part of a Georgian Grade II listed property in which the poet Shelley lived in 1811.

The property features in the early pioneering photographs of the Abraham brothers.

It is set in an elevated position on the outskirts of Keswick, just three quarters of a mile along a leafy, level footpath to Keswick town centre.

The apartment has a hidden garden and summer house and boasts fine views to the fells from most windows.

Ideal for that perfect romantic getaway. Walk into the main hallway to find doors leading to all rooms, including a ground floor bathroom.

Step into your elegant and classically presented sitting room with period feature fireplace, beautiful views from the enchanting Georgian bay window, and tastefully co-ordinated and comfortable furnishings.

Discover your country style kitchen with granite worktops, breakfast bar delightfully set in a pretty window and high-quality units.

Perfect for the home chef.

A welcoming dining room lies nearby.

Your large master bedroom with king-size bed (additional single put-you-up bed on request), has fine views to the fells.

The family bathroom has period suite with bath and separate shower unit.

You will also find a separate utility room.

Walk on to your sunny, west facing terrace and discover your delightful and comfortably furnished summer house.

The whole apartment has chic and comfortable furnishings, giving a light and warm ambience.

Large windows make the most of the views from each room and you will find fitted carpets in the bedroom and lounge, parquet and tiled flooring to hallway and other rooms, and tasteful decor with contemporary stone sculptures complete the internal details. Walk into Keswick to browse the specialist shops and to have a bite to eat.

Visit the renowned Pencil Museum, home of the first pencil.

Enjoy a lake cruise on beautiful Derwentwater.

There is a twice weekly market in Keswick.

For a more challenging adventure walk up to lovely Catbells or Latrigg, Keswick’s own fell.

You will have a choice of many more excellent walking trails from your doorstep.
