  • “Great house, very clean and excellent location.”

    Perfect base for exploring the lakes.

    Perfect base for exploring the lakes. Only two issues - loft bedroom could do with a blackout blind as it's very bright in there for sleeping. The bed in the main bedroom was very, very hard to sleep on. We ended up having to take turns with the kids to swap beds as it was so uncomfortable we just couldn't sleep!

The property

Positioned close to the lively centre of Keswick is this stone-built terraced property, Derwent Cottage.

Spread over three floors, this attractive abode welcomes families eager to escape to the Lake District, with beautiful scenery and charming attractions in every direction.

Allow yourself to fall deep into the plush sofa as you listen to the crackle of the woodburner, before gathering at the dining table to plan out your upcoming activities for the next few days to come.

Head on through to the fully-fitted kitchen, complete with a range of integrated appliances amongst sleek worktops and units, here you can rustle up home-cooked meals for all to enjoy.

Climb to the first floor and discover the master bedroom, housing a generous super-king-size bed and benefitting from a light and airy aspect due to a tall window, while across the hall rests a fresh bathroom, perfect for rounding off your evenings with a relaxing soak.

Climb another set of stairs to reach the final bedrooms, offering a double and single bedrooms, both enjoying homely furnishings and Velux windows with views of Catbells and Skiddaw.

To the exterior there is a small enclosed courtyard where you can sit out and enjoy the fresh air whilst sipping on your morning coffee, before heading into the town to find the ingredients for a hearty breakfast.

Twice a week, Keswick market is open and sells a selection of local food and gifts, while there are also a number of delightful shops and eateries to take advantage of.

Grab your walking gear and relish in a challenging walk up the Mountain Peak of Skiddaw, whilst those history buffs will love exploring the ruins of Castlerigg Stone Circle and the charming Keswick Museum.

After completing all the in area, venture to the popular locations of Ambleside and Bowness-on-Windermere, where you can enjoy a wealth of interesting shops and attractions or hop on board a Windermere steamer and enjoy a circular voyage of England’s largest lake!
