The Lake District is frequently voted Britain's finest landscape, and Derwent Lea has the best view of that landscape. You could sit out on the patio to soak it up, or view it from the picture windows in all the main rooms. It's an ideal base for a family reunion, or a group of friends here for a walking holiday.

Applethwaite hamlet is secluded, quiet and intimate, with freedom to roam right from the door; and yet lively Keswick with its outdoor shops, theatre, cinema and multiple attractions is only 2 km away. Derwent Lea has its own secure garden, plus use of the surrounding four acre field.

Further details indoors

The immediate impression as you enter Derwent Lea is of space, light, and the fantastic views from every window. Both lounge and dining room are roomy, with large picture windows framing the superb view over the Derwent Valley. The kitchen is equally generous, with room for breakfast if you wish; and upstairs the bedrooms, -especially the king sized, are also comfortably proportioned and with the same great views.

Further details outdoors

Tick boxes do no justice to the Derwent Lea garden. The patio is breath-taking; just the place for a leisurely drink or a BBQ at the end of a day on the fells. The garden is secure, so if you have a pet or young children they can roam in safety. Added to that, we own the four acre field that surrounds the house, and you are welcome to use it as you will.

The Lake District

The Lake District is regularly voted the finest scenery in Britain, and Keswick is at its heart. Soaring mountains, beautiful tranquil lakes, sparkling rivers and so many places of interest you could spend months here and not exhaust the possibilities. Keswick prides itself on being 'the Adventure Capital' of England, and you can take part in virtually every outdoor activity: walking, climbing, sailing, canoeing, horse riding, golf, even paragliding. It's not always sunny of course, but even on wetter days there are castles, museums, stately homes, and many other covered attractions to visit, and as the saying goes, there has to be a little rain to keep the lakes topped up!

Applethwaite

Keswick town is perfect for visitors, with outdoor shops, a wonderful theatre, cafes spilling out onto the streets, and Lake road leading down to its jewel, lovely Lake Derwentwater. At the newly refurbished foreshore you can stroll to Friar's Crag, take a rowing boat out for an hour or more, take a trip on one of the graceful launches, or hire anything from a canoe or a windsurfer to a dinghy, -with wetsuits provided.

Where Keswick is busy and bustling, Applethwaite is tranquil and peaceful. You're more likely to come across a hen, pig or duck than a motorbike, and to wander through its peaceful lanes is a pleasure indeed. There are no facilities, save for the little chapel, but with Keswick just a couple of miles away, who needs them?

"Home away from home with magnificent views! Take us back!"

A lovely house, with amazing views and such good space! The dogs felt right at home with a large garden to roam in, and the house is so much bigger than we imagined. Comfortably took all of the family… More

I echo all the comments from previous reviewers, so will not simply repeat them. Easy to find, very close to Keswick, but Derwent Lea and Applethwiate seems a world apart from the bustling town. You m… More

"Most amazing location - cannot recommend this property enough & it's a bargain"

We spent a week at the property in October 2010 with family and friends, and for a few hundred pounds we were a bit concerned about what sort of 4 bedroom house it would be. We weren't disappointed, in fact we were astounded at the value for money. The house is massive: two large reception rooms (one is a more formal dining room and the other a lounge with open fire), a large kitchen with another dining table, two bathrooms and 4 large bedrooms. All of these rooms have amazing views of the mountains.
There is also a beautiful patio area that has a panoramic view of the beautiful view..an amazing place to have a glass of wine or your morning coffee. There's also an enclosed garden (perfect for our dogs) that surrounds the house.
It's very close to Derwent Water, which has the most amazing walks and in my opinion, is one of the most beautiful locations in the Lake District.
I cannot recommend this property enough. Best wishes for an equally beautiful stay. (have attached pics but forgot to take any of the actual house)
