The property

South View is in an idyllic location in the northern lakes and, with its panoramic south facing mountain and lake views, you will be assured of a holiday in beautiful surroundings in any season of the year. The apartment is located in an impressive, former gentleman's residence set in extensive gardens about two miles from the centre of Keswick. The building has been sympathetically divided into a small number of privately owned properties offering a peaceful location for relaxing and many opportunities for enjoying the surrounding area. There is so much walking to be done in the area that you will be spoiled for choice, whilst Keswick has good shopping and a choice of local eating places. Accommodation: South View takes up two floors with the main living areas at a raised ground floor level entered via a spacious shared entrance hall which also serves the other apartments. Once inside the apartment you have an inner hallway (wc and cloaks). Striking spacious sitting room furnished in cherry-wood has three high windows, two of which have dramatic south facing views (TV, DVD/video, stereo, fireplace with gas fire and free wireless broadband). The kitchen/dining room has side door to patio and gardens. The bedrooms are at lower ground floor level where there is also a laundry room/store. The master bedroom has a spacious king-sized bed with newly fitted en-suite bathroom (walk-in shower, basin and wc). The second bedroom is a twin, again with en-suite bathroom (bath, basin and wc). Fitted carpets throughout with off peak night store heating and hot water. Quality furnishings throughout create a welcoming and relaxing feel. Outside: Private parking for one car. Extensive shared gardens with terrace and pond. Ample room for sitting out of doors and views to the hills and down Borrowdale. Keswick centre 2 miles.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Bassenthwaite 7 miles, Ullswater 16.6 miles; Cockermouth 13 miles.

The popular town of Keswick is the holiday centre of the North of the Lake District and has plenty to offer the visitor at any time of year. The town boasts numerous shops and restaurants to suit all tastes, as well as offering miniature golf, excellent parks, the famous Theatre by the Lake, a charming cinema, the Pencil Museum, a climbing wall, fishing and great mountain biking opportunities, whilst the beautiful lake of Derwentwater at the head of the stunning Borrowdale Valley is only a few minutes walk from the town centre. Nearby, between Braithwaite and Buttermere is the beautiful Newlands Valley, while picturesque Bassenthwaite Lake is well worth a visit. From a gentle countryside ramble to a challenging hike up Skiddaw or the famous Catbells, there really is something for everyone. Visit Castlerigg Stone Circle, the Jennings Brewery and Mirehouse, a grand house and gardens on the shores of the Bassenthwaite Lake, or take a fabulous boat trip around Derwentwater. With plenty of attractions for the kids, lovely parks and the nearby Lake District Wildlife Park this is a great Lakeland destination whatever the time of year.
