The property

Tucked away in the popular town of Keswick in Cumbria, is this fantastic, two-bedroom period property, Raphael's Cottage.

Enjoying a superb location within the Lake District National Park next to Derwent Water, as well as a beautifully-presented interior with period features, Raphael's Cottage makes for a wonderful family-friendly dwelling for two couples or a family of four looking to escape to the Lakes.

After parking up, you will be greeted by a charming front patio with a bench, perfect for watching the world go by as you enjoy a steaming cup of coffee.

Step into the property, where you can look forward to rustling up culinary delights in the well-equipped kitchen, with the help of the electric oven, gas hob, microwave and handy dishwasher, ensuring time isn’t wasted doing chores.

There is also a handy utility room which houses a tumble dryer and washing machine, ideal for keeping your holiday wardrobe fresh!

Settle down to tuck-in to long, lazy dinners at the dining table for four, or if the weather is nice, why not make dinner an alfresco affair out on the private patio that adjoins the enclosed lawn garden?

Retire to the plush sofa for an evening of entertainment, courtesy of the Smart TV with DVD player, as you bask in the glow of the gas stove.

As your eyes start to grow heavy, climb the stairs to the first floor, where you will discover two well-presented bedrooms, a double and a twin, both served by a beautiful bathroom, ready to welcome you with indulgent soaks and refreshing showers.

Take advantage of Raphael's Cottage location and head into the town centre of Keswick, where you will be spoilt for choice by the pubs and restaurants on offer, as well as the fascinating Keswick Museum, the Derwent Pencil Museum and the Puzzling Place, where you can wander illusion-filled exhibits.

Those looking for more adventure-filled excursions need look no further than Keswick Adventure Centre, where you can try your hand at paddleboarding, canyoning and ghyll scrambling.

For an unforgettable evening, why not treat your loved ones to a live performance at the stunning venue of the Theatre By The Lake?

If that’s not enough, there is miniature golf, fishing, excellent mountain biking opportunities, canoeing and bushcraft all readily available right on your doorstep.

Bassenthwaite is just a short drive away, well-known for it’s expansive lake surrounded by rolling hills where you can enjoy leisurely strolls along the waterside paths, sail or spot the local birdlife which frequent this area.

For wildlife enthusiasts the Lake District Wildlife Park is a must-see, where you can view over 100 species of exotic animals, ensuring a fun-filled day for all!

Be sure to visit Cockermouth, renowned for its links to the famous poet of William Wordsworth, who’s former home can be toured and rests along the River Cocker, as well as being home to charming art galleries, the Cockermouth History Wall and the picturesque Memorial Gardens.

For an escape to the Lakes to remember, choose Raphael's Cottage.
