    “Located in a quiet park of the Lake District but easy drive to Keswick.”

    West facing garden for those afternoons spent at the cottage with an afternoon drink. A good location for the Newlands Valley peaks and Grisedale Pike etc. Dog friendly, clean and all the facilities you need. Would recommend.

The property

Set in the delightful Newlands Valley at the foot of Catbells and Causey Pike, Grisedale Cottage makes a great base for a holiday in any season. From here you can make the most of some of the finest peaks in the Lake District and with valley rambles for easier days and plenty of places to visit by car you will never be short of something to do. For the more energetic the Newlands Adventure Centre is close by, offering a range of activities such as rock climbing, canoeing, ghyll scrambling and archery. For a more leisurely pace take a short walk to Derwentwater (about a mile and a half) and catch the launch from the pier to sail across to Keswick or down to Grange in Borrowdale. You can walk beside the nearby Newlands Beck, stroll up to the Swinside Inn for bar meals, or take a short drive to Braithwaite for the village shop and a choice of pubs. Keswick has year round theatre, cinema, markets and shopping. Accommodation: This attractive cottage is at the end of a short row of 19th century former mill workers' cottages with a more recent extension adding a real feeling of space. Entrance up a few steps into the little hallway with coat stand and hooks. A doorway leads to the second bathroom with shower, basin and wc. Cosy sitting room with bay window (TV with freesat HD, Blu-ray DVD, video, Wi-Fi) and multi-fuel stove. Three steps lead up into the dining kitchen, which has a rear door to the garden and windows at each end.

About the location

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. With plenty of attractions for the kids, lovely parks and the nearby Lake District Wildlife Park this is a great Lakeland destination whatever the time of year.
