Borrowdale House

House | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8

Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages
  • No pets allowed
  • Car not necessary

Borrowdale House is an ideally located holiday cottage – on a peaceful street, surrounded by beautiful scenery, yet with all the amenities of the charming market town of Keswick close at hand.

The house comfortably sleeps eight and is well suited to two families sharing or a group of friends (though not for parties, so as not to disturb this quiet neighbourhood).

There is plenty to do within walking distance from the house: exhilarating fell walks straight from the door or a leisurely stroll to beautiful Derwentwater, where you can hire a rowing boat or take a ferry cruise. There are two lovely parks in Keswick including a fantastic playground, river walks and obstacle golf. There are plenty of shops, restaurants, two supermarkets, and even a cinema and theatre close at hand. For rainy days there are some interesting museums and a family-friendly leisure centre with swimming pool.

If you have time to venture further afield, a short journey by car, bus or boat will take you to countless more beautiful walks in the stunning Lakeland scenery, and we provide plenty of walk guides and maps in the house. Canoeing and kayaking, mountain bike trails, horseriding, and the Whinlatter forest centre with its adventure playground, are all within easy reach.

For cosy evenings in, there is a fireplace in the living room where you can make real log fires, or choose a DVD from our wide-ranging collection to watch on the widescreen TV. The kitchen is well-equipped for making a meal to share, with a double oven and plenty of work space to share the cooking as well.

Further details indoors

We know that a great holiday starts with a good night’s sleep, so we have provided solid, handcrafted wooden beds from the award-winning Warren Evans bed company, along with supportive mattresses, pure cotton sheets and a choice of duvets. The beds are of course made up on arrival but if you prefer you can choose a lighter or warmer duvet to suit your preferences.

As well as the log fire in the living room we have central heating and many guests have commented on how warm and comfortable the house is. There is unlimited hot water, a shower room tiled in natural travertine stone with a modern walk-in shower, and a spacious bathroom with charming freestanding rolltop bath.

We welcome children and we provide highchairs, stairgates, cots (made up and ready for any sleepy babies/toddlers on arrival), baby bath, potty, changing mat, toys, books and even a double all-terrain pushchair and toddler carrier. We know from our own experience that it’s not always possible to fit all the equipment you need into a car, much less on a plane, so it is there waiting for you.

That’s why we also provide bedlinen (pure cotton), towels, teatowels and the small necessities such as handsoap and washing-up liquid.

The house is on three floors:

Ground floor: living room, dining room and kitchen

First floor: Bathroom, shower room, master bedroom and twin bedroom

Second floor: Double bedroom and twin bedroom

The Cumbria/Lake District

The English Lake District includes stunning mountain scenery, ancient woodland and serene lakes. With a well-maintained network of paths and a huge variety of routes, the area is a walker's paradise.

Outdoor activities such as watersports, mountainbiking and climbing are very popular. At the same time there are many famous beauty spots that can be accessed without effort, and interesting museums including the home of William Wordsworth.

Keswick

‘Keswick is … the single best base of operations’, wrote Alfred Wainwright in his famous walking guide to the Lake District.

Surrounded by some of the most dramatic peaks in England and next to beautiful Derwentwater, Keswick offers a huge variety of memorable excursions and outdoor activities.

Derwentwater offers plenty of opportunities for canoeing, kayaking and sailing. The Keswick Launch ferries passengers to different points around the lake, making even more walks accessible to visitors without a car, including the ever-popular summit of Cat Bells.

Keswick is the gateway to Borrowdale, which William Wordsworth described as the 'most beautiful valley in England'. Borrowdale is much more wooded than most Lake District valleys, and a stroll among its ancient oak trees is a delight. It is full of mountain streams and friendly cafes, and walks for all abilities. Whether you are enjoying a low-level walk alongside the River Derwent, sitting by the lake or setting out to conquer Scafell Pike, England's highest mountain, in Borrowdale you will always be surrounded by breathtaking scenery.

Many points in Borrowdale can be reached from Keswick on foot, and the Launch, regular bus services and numerous small car parks will also help you get to the start of your excursion.
