The property

Fox's Retreat is a charming, reverse-level, terraced maisonette resting in the heart of Keswick, Cumbria.

Within easy reach of the town's excellent amenities, as well as the best sights the Lake District National Park has to offer, this is an ideal base for a couples or family of three to escape to nature.

Enjoy an easy arrival thanks to the private parking space for one car, before stepping inside your holiday home right on the high street.

Climb the stairs to find a beautifully-finished, first-floor kitchen with gentle blue hues, equipped with an electric oven, gas hob and fridge with ice box to whip up delicious meals.

After adventuring through Borrowdale Valley, throw muddy walking gear straight into the handy washer/dryer and make a fresh batch of coffee with the cafetiere!

Take refuge in the social heart of the cottage, a snug living/dining room, to savour a hearty breakfast at the seating for four or curl up on the corner sofa by the warmth of the electric fire whilst you catch up on your favourite TV shows.

Catch your rest in one of two ground-floor bedrooms, including a double for two and a 4' double for one guest, both of which have wall-mounted TV's with Freeview for lazy mornings relaxing under the covers.

Freshen up in the sleek, contemporary shower room, before lacing up your hiking boots and venturing into your stunning surroundings.

Keswick is a popular destination with a variety of attractions and amenities on offer; enjoy a game of golf with panoramic views, admire the exhibitions at The Makers Mill and catch a lakeside performance at the iconic Theatre by the Lake.

The idyllic valley of Borrowdale is just south of the town and a paradise for walkers, cyclists and climbers alike, with plenty of crags scattered throughout, strolls along Derwent Water Lake and the romantic Lodore Falls.

Jump in the car and travel east to Ullswater, a fabulous lake offering cruises to pleasant villages with tempting tearooms, including Pooley Bridge, Glenridding and Howtown.

Other nearby attractions include the renowned Aira Force Waterfall for nature trails and viewpoints sweeping across the landscape, as well as Dalemain Mansion & Historic Gardens and the medieval Lowther Castle & Gardens.

For historians and literary-lovers, Cockermouth is a must-visit to discover the birthplace of William Wordsworth; visit the writer's historic former home, explore Cockermouth History Wall or get inspired by Castlegate House Gallery.

Book your stay at Fox's Retreat and escape to the heart of the Lake District.
