    “Wonderful views.”

    - Mrs Martin, June 2021

This property is part of the Heart Of The Lakes collection.
We are a Local Lake District business offering a wide range of Lake District cottages, apartments and houses; some old, some modern and something for every taste, but ALL within the National Park and therefore in the heart of one of Britain's loveliest corners.

The property

Grisedale Cottage is a charming, three-bedroom holiday home set at the end of a short row of attractive, 19th century former mill workers' cottages.

It has been enhanced by a more recent extension.

The cottage is set in walker’s paradise.

Nestled attractively at the foot of Catbells and Causey Pike, it is within striking distance of some of the finest peaks in the Lake District.

Easier walking, through the wonderful Newlands valley is also on the doorstep.

It is three and a half miles to the bustling market town of Keswick and is well placed to tour this wonderful part of the world by car.

Ideal for a family or two couples.

Take a few steps up into the hallway and store and hang up your outdoor clothes.

You will find a modern shower room.

Walk into your lovely dual aspect, sitting room and your eyes will be drawn to the delightful, deeply set bay window.

Admire the original ceiling beams, multi-fuel stove and comfortable suite before taking three steps up to your kitchen with dining area.

This is also a dual aspect room with natural light pouring through the windows, giving the room a cheerful and welcoming ambience.

Step out of the kitchen door onto the patio and explore your delightful wooded gardens, mostly of lawn with mature trees and shrubs.

Go back inside and climb the stairs to find three good-sized and comfortable bedrooms: a double bedroom with king size bed, a double bedroom and a twin bedroom.

A modern family bathroom has bath with separate shower is nearby.

For an energetic day visit the Newlands Adventure Centre to try your hand at rock climbing, canoeing, ghyll scrambling or archery.

Walk up Catbells, for panoramic views of shimmering Derwentwater.

Take a leisurely stroll into the timeless Newlands Valley.

Enjoy the riverside path to the well-loved Swinside Inn for a bar meal.

Drive to Keswick to explore specialist shops, excellent restaurants, cafes and pubs and much more.

Magical Derwentwater lies just a ten-minute walk from the centre of town.

The popular town of Keswick is the holiday centre of the North of the Lake District and has plenty to offer the visitor at any time of year. 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.
