The property

Keswick 8.8 miles. Low Melbecks House is a delightful white stone cottage resting on the outskirts of Bassenthwaite, in the majestic Lake District National Park. It lies in a charming renovated house that dates back many years and touches of this history can be found throughout the property with features such as the exposed beams. The property has a reverse-level accommodation with two ground-floor king-size bedrooms, each complete with their own en-suites. Choose from an elegant freestanding bath and a wet-room style shower to prepare for your day in style. The first floor is completely open-plan and benefits from a small balcony area boasting stunning views of the fells, the ideal spot for enjoying a morning cup of tea whilst the sun rises. Indulge in the large corner sofa at hand and have a quiet evening in front of the TV, with a DVD player and Sonos speakers as an added bonus. The kitchen is amply-equipped with everything you could need to set you up for a weekend in the countryside, whilst the large dining area has all the seating needed to cook up some delicious meals. Benefit from an external games room with a pool table to keep you entertained for those quieter evenings. The cottage has a large garden with seating so you can enjoy a refreshing drink outside during the summer months. The nearby town of Keswick is home to a selection of pubs and restaurants if you don't fancy cooking one evening. Some popular historical attractions include Keswick Museum, hosting a range of displays, or visit the quirky Puzzling Place art museum which has holograms and 3D image exhibits. Derwentwater rests not far from Keswick town centre and is the ideal spot for all manner of watersporting opportunities. Further afield is the National Trust Hill Top, famously known as Beatrix Potter's 17th century farmhouse which acts as a time-capsule of her life. Keen walkers and hikers will delight in exploring the well-known high peaks of Scaffel Pike and Helvellyn, sporting views of one of England's most beautiful regions. If you can tear yourself away from all of this, then venture towards Dove Cottage and The Wordsworth Museum, once the home of famous poet William Wordsworth, housing journals and manuscripts, as well as the country garden he planted with his sister Dorothy. Low Melbecks House is the place to visit for its grand walks and sightseeing opportunities. Note: The property can be booked with Ref. 1024591, together they can sleep 8 guests.
