The property

Walla Crag is a two-bedroom contemporary first-floor apartment in the market town of Keswick in Cumbria. The apartment is a relaxing central base for couples or families wishing to explore the Lake District National Park. It is located in the heart of a Grade II listed building, formerly a coaching inn frequented by poets and writers such as Coleridge, Tennyson and Wordsworth. On the first floor, you will find a king-sized bedroom, with ensuite shower room, and a twin bedroom with its own dressing area. Make your way up to the open plan second floor, where you can rustle up a meal in the well-equipped kitchen ready to enjoy at the dining table for four. After dinner, why not savour the last of the day’s sunshine with your favourite tipple out on your very own private terrace with fleecy blankets for those cooler evenings. Walla Crag has an extensive collection of books, DVDs and board games to entertain you after a day exploring the fells, shops or cafes in and around Keswick. If you haven't yet explored your town, you'll be delighted to learn that you're surrounded by a wide assortment of bars, restaurants, and convenience stores that include Lakes Bar & Bistro, The Square Orange Café, and more. The Keswick Museum and Derwent Pencil Museum are great stops for history buffs, while the Keswick Adventure Centre offers outings for thrill seekers to go ghyll scrambling, canyoning, and paddleboarding in the area. Keswick's other attractions include the Puzzling Place, the picturesque Keswick to Threlkeld Railway Trail, and the first-rate Keswick Golf Course. Watersports enthusiasts will find much to do at nearby Derwent Water, including canoeing and sailing along with other activities like bushcraft and live performances at the charming Theatre By the Lake. The neighbouring Bassenthwaite Lake National Nature Reserve and Lake District Wildlife Park, home to over 100 kinds of exotic animals, are sure to entice any wildlife enthusiasts.
