Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
This ground floor apartment enjoys an impressive setting as it is located on the ground floor of a building which was a 17th Century coaching inn. This means that there is a garden and plenty of parking space outside. The Apartment can accommodate four people, with two double bedrooms, a bathroom and shower room installed. The views the property affords would be hard to better; visitors can take in the panorama of the fells above Keswick and across the valley towards Skiddaw. A decked area in the garden means that the view can be enjoyed from outside in comfort and there is gas central heating to keep winter visitors warm. A washing machine, tumble drier and freezer mean that the conveniences of home are not sacrificed.

The Cumbria/Lake District
The Lake District conjures up images of magnificent mountains and shimmering lakes and that is exactly what visitors find here. In fact the whole county of Cumbria is home to some of Britain's most beautiful scenery. This region has been a favourite all year round holiday destination for years and apart from its natural beauty it's also packed with lots of attractions and activities that cater for every kind of holidaymaker, from family holidays to romantic breaks for couples and from those who are looking for lots of activities and sports to those that prefer more gentle country pursuits. The Lake District National Park lies at the heart of Cumbria and contains well known and much loved holiday destinations such as Windermere, Bowness, Ambleside, Coniston and Grasmere, here there are lots of charming Lakeland villages to discover and visitor attractions for all the family. The northern and western lakes have miles of untouched natural rugged beauty and rural villages as well as being home to the historic northern lakes town of Keswick with its many shops, pubs and restaurants; providing a great holiday base. Other areas to discover include the Eden Valley, Cartmel peninsula, south east Cumbria and the Carlisle and Hadrian's Wall area; all equally beautiful and very handy for day trips into the lakes.
The villages of Thornthwaite and Braithwaite lie in the northern Lake District. The region's main market town of Keswick, with a range of amenities, is just three miles away.
Access to two of the region's main lakes, Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite, is very straightforward and there is a whole range of outdoor activities centred on these bodies of water. Bassenthwaite is a site where wild ospreys breed now and the Whinlatter Forest Park contains England's only true mountain forest.
Visitors can also enjoy birds of prey displays at local theme parks, while the nearby Ashness Bridge is one of Lakeland's most photographed beauty spots.
