    However, although there is a general message on your website about cottages (low ceilings, steep stairs etc) I do feel the fact that the back door/garden is accessible down a steep set of stairs from the kitchen should be made more apparent. The parking permit was an issue for us, we were expecting to find a paper permit in the cottage, it was not until I contacted your offices that it was made clear I should have organised this earlier. Having sent the required email, and contacted your offices again I still have no idea if the permit was granted or not. We paid parking fees. It would be helpful if the need to organise the permit was made clear in the booking process.

The cottage is a great find for couples seeking an action-packed getaway to an area renowned for its great walking opportunities and pretty towns and villages that cannot be missed. After soaking up your surroundings, enter into the property where you will first notice the characterful beams that frame the space and complement the plush furnishings and modern fixtures. During the winter months, light up the fire and relish in some relaxation time as you settle down on the sofa to delve into a good book or catch up on your favourite TV shows. Joining the open-plan living space is a compact kitchen, a contemporary space filled with everything you could possibly need to cater tasty meals that can be enjoyed at the cute dining table. Take the time to simply watch the world go by, enjoy quality catch-up time with your partner and pop open a bottle of fizz and toast to a great holiday in the Lakes. During the summer evenings, take your drinks outdoors to the shared garden, where seating offers a space to sit to catch the final glimpses of sunshine before heading to bed. Upstairs, you will find a spacious king-size bed, featuring quality linens that you can curl up under after a long walk, as well as a TV, which is ideal for those lazy Sunday mornings. Completing the interior is the bathroom, featuring a shower over bath, basin and WC.

There is also ample room to safely secure bikes for peace of mind. If you can tear yourself away from this charming bolthole, venture into the town centre, where you will find a large market square, home to an award-winning market and a fantastic array of shops, ranging from craft bakeries, a butchers and supermarkets, so you certain to find what you need! The town also plays host to a plethora of eateries, including pubs, restaurants, bistros, cafes and wine bars and for further evening entertainment, you can catch a film at the Theatre By The Lake on the shores of the Derwentwater. To keep you busy whilst here, lace up your hiking boots and challenge yourself to a hike up Skiddaw, the 5th highest peak in the Lake District, or to one of the other surrounding fells, including Cat Bells, Coledale Horeshoe and Blencathra. Alternatively, spend your afternoons on a cruise upon the lake before stopping off at the National Trust owned property, Derwent Island House.
