Stunning garden apartment sleeping four guests, set within extensive grounds, enjoying a breath-taking location under the shadow of Skiddaw and only two miles from the town of Keswick.
This apartment enjoys a wonderfully tranquil location in the Lake District, with the stunning landscape of Skiddaw as a backdrop. The area around the apartment is perfect for enjoying scenic walks or mountain bike rides, whilst more adventurous visitors may like to hike to the summit of Skiddaw. Just a few miles north of the property, Bassenthwaite Lake is the most northerly lake in the region and is a popular destination for keen sailors. On the northern shore of the lake, the Lakes Distillery offers tasting tours and is also home to a bistro and a group of resident alpacas who visitors are able to handfeed. Two miles south of the property, the town of Keswick is a vibrant market town offering a good range of shops and eateries, as well as a museum, the intriguing Puzzle Place, and an indoor climbing centre.
Guests staying at this ground-floor apartment are in for a treat, as it has been lovingly maintained by the owners to create a stylish and comfortable retreat. Passing through the courtyard garden, guests enter the property through the conservatory, a peaceful spot to relax on the armchair and sofa and enjoy the views over the gardens. Double doors lead through to the lounge/diner, a spacious room which has been tastefully decorated, offering two inviting sofas from which guests can enjoy the warmth of the wood burner and a favourite programme or film on the Smart TV/DVD. A window seat is a great place to sit with a good book, whilst the dining table with its leather chairs is perfect for enjoying leisurely meals into the late evening. Moving through to the kitchen, guests will find a light-filled space with a contemporary feel to it, which is well-equipped offering an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, coffee machine, dishwasher and washer/dryer.
