This property is part of the Lake District Lodge Holidays collection.
From the moment you arrive in the Lake District there is a huge choice of activities and things to see as you take in Britain’s latest World Heritage Site – it’s the only National Park to be recognised for such status.

The property

This charming pine lodge rests peacefully within Burnside Park on the leafy fringes of Keswick in the beautiful Lake District.

With panoramic views of the Lakeland fells and positioned just a stone's throw away from the town centre, Squirrels Leap makes the perfect spot for a holiday with your better half.

Enjoy the luxuries of this lodge from the moment you step inside, turn on the electric fire in the living room and drink in those countryside views from your patio windows as you rest on one of the sofas.

You may have travelled far and wide to visit this delightful part of the UK, so a glass of wine and time to relax might be just what you need when you arrive.

You can rustle up a lovely meal in the kitchen, which has an electric oven and hob as well as a slimline dishwasher, so you don't have to worry about the washing up afterwards - what a delight!

Catch your rest in the double bedroom once you've had a warm bath to soak your muscles or wake up to a refreshing shower in the morning instead, the Jack-and Jill bathroom has both.

If you love the great outdoors, you will be thrilled to find that the grounds of the lodge are at the foot of Skiddaw and Latrigg fells, and you can even enjoy nature right from your patio where there is a seating area for you to relish a balmy summer's evening.

Keswick has plenty of amenities close by including shops, pubs, its famous Theatre by the Lake and a cinema for those rainier days.

The charming Derwentwater lies to the south of the town and can be accessed via well-maintained footpaths.

There are many easy ‘miles without stiles’ walking routes you can take in the area, as well as many challenging hikes over high peaks.

For those who enjoy skiing, the Lake District Ski Club is just over 6 miles away situated near the top of one of England’s highest mountains and has up to nine runs, the longest being almost a mile.

The wider area includes Scafell Pike, Grizedale and Windermere, each well worth a visit for something different and those who enjoy the coast can take a trip over to Whitehaven and St. Bees Head Heritage Coast.

Squirrels Leap provides a lovely break for you and your loved one.

The town boasts numerous shops and restaurants to suit all tastes, as well as offering miniature golf, excellent parks, the famous Theatre by the Lake, a charming cinema, the Pencil Museum, a climbing wall, fishing and great mountain biking opportunities, whilst the beautiful lake of Derwentwater at the head of the stunning Borrowdale Valley is only a few minutes walk from the town centre. Nearby, between Braithwaite and Buttermere is the beautiful Newlands Valley, while picturesque Bassenthwaite Lake is well worth a visit. From a gentle countryside ramble to a challenging hike up Skiddaw or the famous Catbells, there really is something for everyone. Visit Castlerigg Stone Circle, the Jennings Brewery and Mirehouse, a grand house and gardens on the shores of the Bassenthwaite Lake, or take a fabulous boat trip around Derwentwater.
