    “Wonderful first visit to Keswick which will be hard to beat!”

    The house had all we needed, beautiful kitchen, bathrooms and beds. We had good weather and views of Skiddaw. Found the red squirrel and enjoyed walking to town for shopping and eating out. Thanks so much!

The property

Scots Pine is nestled in a beautiful, quiet and peaceful area and sits at the foot of Latrigg, within easy walking distance of Keswick town centre and market square in just 10- 15 minutes and forms part of a large Georgian manor house which is steeped in history. The cottage itself is a beautiful Victorian cottage which has its own enclosed garden and raised patio area. A great cottage for couples, families and just the perfect spot to get romantic! Presented with two bedrooms, one Super King/Twin with en suite shower room and the other a Super King with a large family bathroom. Smart kitchen, a bright and airy lounge/diner and a garden to relax in. Scots Pine is an excellent choice whatever the time of year. Accommodation Take the path to the front door which opens into the smart kitchen with space for coats and boots. The contemporary kitchen is equipped with quality appliances. You’ll find an Induction hob, electric oven, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, microwave, washing achine and a tumble dryer. Everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay and to cook that hearty breakfast so set you up for the day ahead or to enjoy that family meal. Enter the bright triple aspect and living/dining room with a comfortable corner sofa which is arranged around the central coffee table. A Smart TV, music system and DVD player completes the living area which includes the log burner. A perfect space to relax with friends and family and enjoy a film or play board games. Or indeed just relax with a glass of wine. The two large bedrooms are located on the first floor and have TV’s. Both have views towards Latrigg. The master bedroom is a dual aspect room, with a vaulted ceiling, beams and window shutters. It is complemented by an ensuite shower room, with a super king bed (please specify when booking whether this is required as a twin). The second bedroom again dual aspect is furnished with a Superking bed and is complemented by a large luxury family bathroom with twin basins, WC, bath with shower over. To the front of the property, there is a lawned area and a raised patio which faces south and is a real suntrap benefiting from sun throughout the day and long into the summer evenings. Furnished with outdoor dining furniture this is a lovely place to relax on a summer’s afternoon over lunch, gins and fizz in the evening or freshly brewed coffee first thing in the morning. There is private parking for one car. 1 dog allowed in the property. Location Keswick is one of the Lake District’s most popular destinations. This friendly town hosts the very popular twice weekly market that has recently won the coveted “Best Outdoor Market” in the Great British Market Awards. The town also offers a fantastic array of shops offering everything from craft bakeries and local produce, antiques, crafts and much, much more. If you are looking for somewhere to eat and drink, a week just won’t be long enough to sample the great range of pubs, restaurants, bistros, cafes and wine bars! For a great evening out why not visit the 100 year old Alhambra offering first class cinema entertainment in traditional surroundings or enjoy an evening at “the most beautiful and friendly theatre in Britain”, the 400 seat Theatre By The Lake on the shores of Derwentwater. Enjoy a cruise on Derwentwater, walk onto the fells; Cat Bells, Skiddaw, Newlands Horseshoe and Blencathra are all nearby, head underground at Honister Slate Mines, enjoy mountain biking in Whinlatter Forest. For day trips throughout the Lake District, Ullswater is a short drive away offering lake cruises, great walking and the beautiful Aira Force Waterfall, Buttermere and Crummock Water offer sublime scenery. Ashness Bridge and Surprise View situated above the Borrowdale Valley should not be missed and perhaps even a cup of tea and homemade cake in the unspoilt village of Watendlath.
