The property

This well-presented home, The Old Betting Shop, rests within the bustling town of Keswick and is ideally situated for exploring the delights of Cumbria and the Lake District National Park. The Old Betting Shop is full of character and charm and is perfect for a couple or a group of four friends looking to explore this pretty part of the country, steeped with a vast array of attractions and activities to suit all ages and tastes. This pretty cottage comes with two bedrooms to choose from, consisting of a brightly decorated king-size bedroom and a well-presented double bedroom, both serviced by a family bathroom. Look forward to spending relaxing evenings within the open-plan living room, where you will find everything you could possibly need during a week-long stay with loved ones. The well-equipped kitchen ensures that the designated chef of the group can prepare delicious evening meals for the whole family. Settle down for dinner at the formal dining table before curling up on the plush sofa, where you can tune into the TV and truly relax into your evening. To the outside, you will find a quaint patio area, where you can enjoy a spot of alfresco dining. If you can tear yourself away from this splendid base, a short stroll will bring you to a selection of pubs and eateries, as well as a choice of shops, a miniature golf course, the Theatre by the Lake, and the Pencil Museum to enjoy. Further afield attractions include District Wildlife Park, or if you are feeling active hike up the mountain peaks of Skiddaw and Blencathra. The Old Betting Shop is a wonderful base for exploring this superb location.
