From the owner

Garden cottage is set in wooded countryside at Fellside, in the Borrowdale valley, near Keswick at the foot of Catbells. The Borrowdale valley runs beside Derwent Water and down to the Honister Pass which leads over to Buttermere. It is a beautiful, scenic part of the Lake District, which recently the tour of Britain passed through. There is much to do in the area including walking, cycling and water sports in addition to many interesting places to visit. The popular village of Grange is 1 mile away with its well known bridge and riverside café. The market town of Keswick is approximately 15 minutes drive away and has plenty of shops, pubs and restaurants, and entertainment including a leisure pool, cinema and theatre. There is direct access onto the fells making it perfect for walkers, and the lake shore is within easy walking distance. Guests are able to enjoy the peaceful grounds in which the cottages are set and which are home to deer and red squirrels.
