Description from owner

Description

How Cottage is a traditional & characterful whitewashed stone cottage in the centre of the idyllic village of Grange. Offering 3 bedrooms with space for up to 5 people. It is a delight for a couple looking for a 'get away from it all' relaxing break but equally is well positioned and equipped for an active family holiday whether it is cycling, climbing, fell running, fishing or walking.

Situated just over the ancient twin-spanned bridge in the centre of Grange in Borrowdale. The village of Grange dates back to the establishment of Home Farm in 1209 by the monks of Furness Abbey. How cottage forms the middle cottage of a row of 3 formerly occupied by a barn. The thickness of the stone walls are testament to its history. Grange lies just south of Derwent Water and is reached along Borrowdale Road from out of Keswick and passing alongside the Lake and south of the famous Lodore Falls. This is mountain country of stunning scenery; to the south there is Great Gable, Green

Location description from owner

The England region

Situated in the jaws of Borrowdale, south of Keswick, at the southern tip of Derwent Water, Grange in Borrowdale is a delightful village situated in magnificent walking and climbing country. The River Derwent meanders through the village and so is ideal for anglers who would like to catch a trout for supper. A beautiful walk to start your holiday is around Derwent Water which is about 12 miles all round or return by launch from various jetties around the Lake, before moving to more challenging walks such as Cat Bells (at the back of How Cottage). Then graduate to Great Gable and Scafell and return for a well earned cream tea at one of the two lovely cafes in Grange. A great family day out is to visit Honister Slate mines, the only remaining working slate quarry. Try the via ferrata which follows the old miner's track up the mountain.

Borrowdale

Grange is located in the central fells of the Lake District. The two main towns are Keswick to the north and Ambleside to the south, both offering a good shopping experience for stocking up on provisions. Keswick is the nearer town, whilst Grasmere is only a 20 minutes' drive away.
