The property

In the centre of the Lake District National Park in Keswick, Cumbria, this pleasant, semi-detached Victorian cottage has a prime location. Idwal Cottage is a lovely base for couples wishing to stay close to the town while being easily accessible to Bassenthwaite, Ullswater, and Cockermouth farther out. It has a range of amenities within a short walk. After a day of exploration, look forward to a movie night in the sitting room, which is furnished with vintage sofas, an electric fireplace, and a Smart TV so you are prepared for peaceful nights in. The traditional kitchen, which has a double electric oven and hob, a microwave, and a fridge, is the ideal venue for the chosen chef surprise and delight. You can start your day of carefree travels because there is also a utility with a washing machine available for your convenience. Continue up to the first floor where you'll find a charmingly furnished bedroom with stunning views of Keswick and a fantastically retro pink bathroom. This is the ultimate place to relax before another fun-filled day. There is a communal garden outside with furnishings where you may unwind with your favourite beverage and reflect on your holiday so far. The Old Mill is close by as is Keswick's wonderful amenities and activities, including cafes, pubs, restaurants, and shops. Choose from Keswick Museum, The Puzzling Place, and the Pencil Museum to keep yourself busy throughout the day, and for warmer evenings, consider Hope Park and Theatre by the Lake. Visit the Aira Force Waterfall along Ullswater, which is set in a scenic valley, or don your hiking boots and ascend Place Fell for great views of the Lake District. There are many opportunities to immerse yourself in the region's rich history thanks to Wordsworth House and Garden Memorial Gardens, which are in Cockermouth. For animal lovers, consider taking a day trip to Alpacaly Ever After, where you can get up close and personal with some furry residents. Idwal Cottage is a wonderful place to stay if you want to discover Keswick in style.
