Location description from owner

The England region

The Lake District has many impressive mountains, open fells and beautiful lakes. The landscape has inspired several literary greats, including William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. You can cruise on a steam-powered yacht or walk the hills and valleys. There are simply so many great ways to explore the Lake District.

For the serious walker, the mountains of Skiddaw, Helvellyn or the highest peak in England, Scaffell Pike provide a great challenge. At lower levels there are hundreds of routes wandering among the lakes and

stone-walled fields.

You can even choose a lake to suit your mood: if bustling lakeside towns and exhilarating watersports take your fancy, then Windermere, Derwent Water and Coniston Water will suit. If it’s peace and tranquility you seek then the secluded lakes of Buttermere and Wastwater are not to be missed. Yet Cumbria offers much more than the lakes alone. Explore the National Nature Reserve on Walney Island or visit the picturesque Duddon Valley, where the heather clad moors peppered with birch trees inspired many of Wordsworth’s poems.

There are a variety of castles, old statley homes and interesting Slate buildings accross the area. You can even visit a working Slate mine and learn how the process begins. Whinlatter and Grizdale forrests are great for mountain biking and walking, you can even Go Ape and climb through the trees. To the east lies the green and sheltered Eden Valley. Its dramatic landscape provides a range of activities including walking, cycling and watersports making for a perfect family day out.

View the only pair of Osprays in England which nest in the trees around Bassinthaite. On a wet day The Rheged visitors centre 15 minutes down the road is great with shops, cafes, children play area and I-max cinema. Keswick Golf course just a short drive away boasts 18 holes in the most beautiful surrounding shadowed by the impresive slopes of Blencathra.

“Perfectly placed, comfortable bungalow”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2017

we enjoyed a great week over Christmas this year. A very comfortable, home from home, bungalow. Not far from centre of Keswick but quiet and off street parking a big plus. The beds were exceptionally comfortable. Towels really were fluffy! And everything clean and lots of kitchen equipment. Coffee and tea and biscuits were certainly appreciated. would happily return

“Autumn Break”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2016

Comfortable accommodation, great location for easy access to the town, buses and walks. Welcome pack of tea/milk/biscuits was a very nice touch. Secure space in lockable garage great for anyone with bikes etc.

Owner's reply: Thank you you for taking the time to review Ferndale, we really appreciate it. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back soon.

“Excellent”

Reviewed 26 Jul 2013

A perfect holiday property; very convenient, comfortable, clean and a quiet location, just a 10 minute stroll into Keswick town centre and 5 minutes to Fitz park, perfect!

Owner's reply: Thank you very much for the kind words and we are glad you found the bungalow so convenient. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon!

“Excellent Location, good facilities”

Reviewed 4 Apr 2013

I stayed here over Easter with my wife and two kids. It's located very close to the towncentre of Keswick and park which has a play area for the children. The main bedroom has plently of room and the kitchen has enough room and utensiles to cook. The garage is handy for storage of bikes. Wifi and clothes washing facilities would be nice, but not essential.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for the feedback we are in the process of improving the cottage and hope that you will visit again soon. WIFI is a great idea, so maybe later on in the year we will think about putting it in. We were also thinking about putting a washer machine in instead of the dishwasher as we have limited space. We hope that you visit again.
