Self-Catering Holiday Cottage Keswick

Cottage in Cumbria in Keswick, Cumbria

Cottage in Cumbria Self-Catering

The cosy cottage, in the quaint village of Papcastle, is deceptively spacious and has a charming outdoor area. After a day of sightseeing, take the short walk (less than 0.5 miles) to the traditional local country pub for a delicious meal. Just 1 mile away is the attractive market town of Cockermouth. Wander along the tree lined high street, browse the independent shops, visit William Wordsworth s childhood home, and take a brewery tour. Lake District highlights, such as Keswick (15 miles) and Ullswater (30 miles) make lovely day trips, along with the beautiful Solway Coast (20 minutes). This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty has gorgeous beaches, sand dunes and salt marshes and is a real haven for birdwatchers and nature lovers. Enter the charming former post office and hang your jackets on the coat stand and park your muddy boots on the shoe rack. A step leads down from the front door and into the spacious lounge area, which features exposed brickwork, fabulous slate flooring and a cosy electric fire. After a day of exploring, sink into the plump sofa or armchairs to watch the TV or simply observe the world going by through the large window. To the back of the cottage, you ll find the gorgeous kitchen/diner. This sociable space is the perfect area to come together in the evening to enjoy delicious home cooked food around the wooden dining table, over a glass of wine or two. The country style kitchen is decorated in neutral tones and is equipped with an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, wine fridge and microwave. You ll also find a handy washing machine and dishwasher. The area is bathed in natural light, thanks to the large picture window. Completing the ground floor is the family bathroom, which cleverly makes use of space to include a shower over the bath and WC. Heading upstairs you ll be greeted by two stylish bedrooms, both decorated in calming tones to create the ideal setting for a good night s sleep. The king size bedroom has a beautiful ornamental fireplace, as well as ample storage, and can be made up into a twin on request. The light and bright double bedroom is equally charming and has a handy en suite shower room with WC. The delightful, gravelled patio is enclosed and is a real sun trap. Enjoy long, lazy BBQs in the sunshine, gathered around the table and chairs. The outhouse can be accessed from the lane that runs behind the property and is ideal for storing bikes and fishing gear. There is off road parking available for one car in front of the property and additional roadside parking can be found in the village.
