The lounge on the front of the house benifits from the veiw to the hills and makes for a cosy night in front of the 32inch Led TV with Freesat (On Demand Programs) six HD channels and DVD player. WIFI is now available. The modern bathroom is split into two, a bath and shower in one and the toilet next door. There is also a playroom upstairs where the children can play, watch a great selection of Freesat TV channels or a DVD. We find it to be a really useful space for the children or even if you just want some extra space. . There is gas central heating and double glazing throughout making this a cosy property any time of year.

Included in the rental (TILL THE END OF 2016) is the use of Keswick Leisure Pool and gym.

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 itâ??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 Wordsworthâ??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.

Keswick

Keswick just 20 minutes from junction 40 on the M6, is easily accessed down the A66 driving right in to the heart of the Lake District. Breathtaking scenary surrounds this popular Lakeland town as it is situated on the shores of Derwent Water and close to both Bassenthaite and Ullswater. There are some great family hills like Catbells or challenging peaks like Skiddaw which one of the highest in the Lake Districk.

There are many nearby attractions and extensive aray of lakes and fells to explore. Vist Whinlatter forest where you can walk, bike or even climb through the trees -'Go Ape' is great for a challenge. View the only pair of Osprays in England which nest in the trees around Bassenthaite. On a wet day, The Rheged visitors centre which is 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 surroundings shadowed by the impresive slopes of Blencathra. Finally for the adventurous, Rookin House which is on the way to Keswick offers outdoor pursuits such as karting, quad biking and archery. Also at Honistor Slate mine you can scale the rock face of the famous Fleetworth Pike or explore the mine shafts deep into the mountain itself.

There is plenty of choice when it comes to eating out with a great selection of eateries on the doorstep within walking distance. There is a varity of restaurants, hotels and lots of great pubs serving home cooked food and lakeland ale. Fish and chips are a firm favourite or why not vist one of the delicious Keswicks bakeries.
