Low Melbecks House

Bassenthwaite, Keswick/North Lakes

Ref: 4105

  • Sleeps: 4
  • Changeover: Saturday


This beautifully renovated cottage is just a mile from Bassenthwaite village in a stunning location on the edge of the Skiddaw Fells, with panoramic views of the fells from the upstairs of the cottage.

There are fine walks from the door for all abilities, and cycle routes pass the lane to the property.  Keswick and Cockermouth are an equal distance away with regular farmers markets, festivals, live theatre and cinema.  Many activities are available on Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite Lake for the more adventurous, and a trip to The Lakes Distillery at Bassenthwaite is a must!

Accommodation: The house is upside down with the living accommodation upstairs to take advantage of the stunning views.  Entrance into hallway with room to store coats and shoes.  Off the hallway are  two lovely king size bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms; one with bath, separate shower, basin and wc and the other with walk in wet room with basin and wc.  Separate wc off hallway.  Stairs lead up to an impressive character open plan lounge/kitchen/dining room with cruck beams (TV with Freeview channels, DVD, Sonos speaker and free Wi-Fi) and small balcony with views of the fells and garden with stream below.

Low Melbecks House has been thoughtfully renovated to a very high standard to provide everything you would need on your self-catering holiday and really feels like a home from home.  Original slate and hard flooring with underfloor heating throughout.

Low Melbecks House and Low Melbecks Cottage (4106) are adjoining properties and can be let individually or together for larger parties up to 8 people.

Outside: Large garden with trees and shrubs and garden seating bordered by a stream (children require supervision).  Parking for two cars in the drive.  Separate games room with pool table.
