The property

Enjoying a prime position in the beautiful market town of Keswick, with striking views across the town and towards the surrounding fells, is this characterful property, Latch Cottage.

This one-bedroom cottage is an exceptional find for a couple seeking a romantic holiday filled with outdoor adventures in a place renowned for its majestic lakes, impressive fells and quaint villages and towns.

Every bit of charming from the outside as it is from the inside, Latch Cottage boasts a clever combination of style and character, with the exposed beams complementing the plush furnishings and mod cons within the open-plan living room.

Delight in relaxation as you light up the woodburning stove and kick back on the sofa with your partner, flicking through the channels of the TV as you unwind after an energetic ramble.

Step across the characterful, wooden floorboards to discover a compact, yet well-equipped kitchen catering to all of your culinary needs, so you are sure to be able to cook up a storm here.

After making use of the quality appliances, settle down for a romantic meal for two at the dining table, perfectly positioned for watching the world go by or admiring the contemporary elegance that you can call home for a while.

During the balmy summer months, take your drinks outdoors to the shared garden to toast to a wonderful holiday with your loved one, whilst sat underneath a beautiful canopy of stars.

Afterwards, head back indoors to find the bedroom, boasting a roomy king-size bed, a small storage space and a TV, which is perfect for those mornings when you want to laze under the plush white duvet!

Freshen up each morning within the sleek bathroom; you can choose to enjoy a rejuvenating shower or run yourself a hot bath at the end of each day, a perfect way to recover after a long walk.

Look forward to exploring your surroundings further, as you take a leisurely stroll into the centre of Keswick, home to an award-winning market and a fantastic array of shops, ranging from craft bakeries, a butchers and supermarkets, so you can certainly pick up last-minute essentials and fresh, local produce.

For the evenings, where you do not feel like cooking, be sure to sample the great range of eateries situated just a stone’s throw away from your doorstep, including a plethora of pubs, restaurants, bistros, cafes and wine bars.

Those feeling active can don their walking shoes and relish in a challenging climb to the summit of Skiddaw – the 5th highest peak in the Lake District, or to one of the other surrounding fells, including Cat Bells, Coledale Horeshoe and Blencathra.

A more leisurely afternoon can be enjoyed on a Derwentwater cruise or catch a film at the quirky Theatre By The Lake on the shores of the lake, or you could head underground to explore the Honister Slate Mines.
