We have four self catering holiday cottages – with magnificent mountain and lake views – for 2, 4 or 6 people. The cottages have peaceful settings in the village of Applethwaite,  just over a mile from Keswick. We sometimes describe them as 'rural but not remote' – away from the hustle and bustle of the town but with all the facilities of Keswick on hand.

In Croftside, the spacious double bedroom has a view over the garden to the Borrowdale valley. Stairs lead to the first floor and the lounge and kitchen/dining room. Both of these are double aspect rooms. The lounge has stunning panoramic views south to Borrowdale and the northwestern fells and east to Latrigg. The kitchen/dining room has spectacular views north to Skiddaw and again east to Latrigg.

The cottage has its own garden, with magnificent views. Garden furniture and a BBQ are provided. From the slate patio you can watch the sunsets over Bassenthwaite.

There is further flight of stairs to the second floor and the twin bedroom and bathroom. The twin room has the same panoramic view south as the lounge. The spacious bathroom has a bath (with shower over) washbasin and toilet and another amazing view to Applethwaite with Skiddaw behind.

There is a separate, shared laundry room with washing machine and tumble dryer and space to dry wet walking gear. Lockable cycle storage is available. Car parking for 2 cars in separate car park area. There is also a separate shared garden area – where children can play on a play tower and guests of all ages can play badminton!

Sorry, no pets
