The property

Set in the delightful Newlands Valley at the foot of Catbells and Causey Pike, Grisedale Cottage makes a great base for a holiday in any season.

For the more energetic the Newlands Adventure Centre is close by, offering a range of activities such as rock climbing, canoeing, ghyll scrambling and archery. For a more leisurely pace take a short walk to Derwentwater (about a mile and a half) and catch the launch from the pier to sail across to Keswick or down to Grange in Borrowdale.

About the location


Keswick 3 miles.

Between the magnificent northern lakes of Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite, lies the village of Braithwaite. Still retaining much of its traditional appeal, the Coledale Beck runs through the village with whitewashed Lakeland cottages, two village shops and two real ale Inns each brimming with character! Between Braithwaite and Buttermere is the beautiful Newlands Valley, while picturesque Bassenthwaite Lake is well worth a visit. From a gentle countryside ramble to a challenging hike up Skiddaw, there really is something for everyone. Visit Mirehouse, a grand house and gardens on the shores of the lake with an open-air theatre, or take a trip around the lake. Lake District Wildlife Park, Dodd Wood, Derwentwater, and Keswick with its wide range of attractions, are also within easy reach.
