About this property

Great for adults, this home sits in the exceptionally peaceful village of Applethwaite and oozes character, with charming spaces inside and out to relax in after days out exploring.

Enjoy lakeside adventures by travelling 3 miles to Bassenthwaite Lake or Derwentwater. The bustling town of Keswick (2 miles) is a great starting point. Board a boat from the local launch and hop on and off to explore or hire your own boat and call in at pretty lakeside villages. Keswick is also home to an independent cinema and the Theatre by the Lake, so you can enjoy a night away from the cottage and the kitchen. If you fancy a walk, stroll 3 miles to Castlerigg Stone Circle, which sits high above the town and boasts wonderful views. Make your way down the path which goes through the tiered garden before stepping inside. The first lounge has oak beams and a collection of artwork and period features surrounding a cosy wood burner. Spend a moment watching TV or throw open the French doors to let the breeze inside. Ascend three steps to the kitchen/diner where you can admire views of Catbells and Causey Pike. With a gas oven and hob, microwave and fridge, enjoy cooking in this charming, farmhouse style kitchen. This room is brimming with characterful features and has a table for four so you can enjoy dining together. A freezer can be found in a nearby utility cupboard in the corridor. With no TV, the second lounge is perfect for enjoying some peace and quiet. There is a wood burner to keep you warm, a comfortable sofa and armchair and a table perfect for games nights. It is flooded with natural light and boasts lovely views of the Western Fells. The two bedrooms one super king size and one king size are cute and cosy. They share the Jack and Jill bathroom with walk in shower and WC. Both doors lock from the inside so that one bedroom can have sole use of the bathroom. You will also find a family bathroom with a bath and WC so you can enjoy a soak after adventurous days. Spend time in the enclosed back garden where steps lead to a patio with table and chairs. More steps lead to the pretty summer house where you can get cosy if there is a chill in the air. Take care as the garden is set over different levels with steps in between. There is off road parking for one car. Need to know: 2 bedrooms: 1 super king size, 1 king size. 2 bathrooms: 1 Jack and Jill en suite shower room, 1 family bathroom with shower over the bath.
