The property

Keswick 9.4 miles. Fellside Cottage is a charming, semi-detached cottage settled in Wythop Mill, Embleton in the Lake District National Park between Keswick and Cockermouth, Cumbria. Ideal for romantic holidays in the Lake District, this cottage provides off-road parking, beautiful country views, and a woodburning stove to set the scene on your next relaxing getaway. The ground floor has a well-equipped kitchen where you can prepare hearty suppers after the day's adventures, with seating for two in the dining room or out on your front patio with bistro-style seating overlooking the hills. Back inside, the sitting room has sumptuous seating to sink into and watch TV, whilst the woodburning stove gently warms the room. As night falls, head upstairs to the welcoming double bedroom, complete with bedside lamps, contemporary storage, TV and country views, along with a bathroom to freshen up in the walk-in shower or relax in the double ended bath. There is a direct access on foot from the cottage to the delightful Sale Fell and Ling Fell from where you can admire the views over Bassenthwaite Lake and towards Skiddaw, the fourth highest mountain in England after the Sca Fells and Helvellyn. The property is also on the Coast to Coast Cycle route. A short journey west brings you to the market town of Cockermouth where Veeva coffee shop, Aspava Restaurant, The Bitter End pub, and Shills of Cockermouth are just some of the superb eateries on offer, alongside convenience stores and supermarkets. There's plenty to see in the town, including Castlegate House Gallery showcasing local artists and tours of the National Trust's Wordsworth House and Garden. Travel east and you are soon in the market town of Keswick, where Derwent Pencil Museum, walks to Castlerigg Stone Circle, and the Theatre By The Lake all await, whilst Derwentwater offers a range of walks, boat cruises, and watersports. For outdoor adventures, head to Bassenthwaite Lake National Nature Reserve for fishing or Derwentwater Marina for sailing, kayaking, canoeing and paddleboarding, while the surroundings include scenic walks at Mirehouse & Gardens and Dodd Wood. For a unique setting, dine on a train at Bassenthwaite Lake Station or watch whisky being made at The Lake District Distillery, followed by a pamper at the Armathwaite Hall Spa, a trip to the Lake District Wildlife Park or a round of golf at Cockermouth Golf Club, all within 4 miles of the cottage. Further afield more challenging hikes await with Skiddaw, Scafell Pike, and Helvellyn all reachable by car, although if you prefer to leave the car behind and not bother with the hassle of parking, there is a bus stop 0.7 miles from the cottage which will let you explore the Lake District by bus. Fellside Cottage is a superb base for an unforgettable holiday in the Lake District.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
