Situated in the heart of the market town of Keswick, just a minutes’ walk from the market square, Baystones is a fully refurbished and modernised property set over three floors above the Lakelovers office. The owners have worked hard to give this property a real home from home feel, retained much of the property’s character whilst bring it bang up to date with quality furnishings, smart bathrooms and a contemporary kitchen.
Cafes, bars and restaurants abound along with a great range of shops in this popular Lakeland Town and the award winning twice weekly market is a popular draw.
The open plan kitchen and lounge are the focus of the home here with comfortable leather sofas, dining table ideal for everything from a hearty breakfast or spending an evening socialising with friends, large screen TV. For those who want to get out and about enjoy a cruise on Derwentwater, the 'Queen of the English Lakes', mountain biking in the nearby Whinlatter Forest or take in the stunning views from Cat Bells and High Spy!

Accommodation in detail
The property is approached down a lane to the rear of local shops in the centre of Keswick. The out doors steps lead to the front door which opens onto a landing with a cloak room with WC and ample coat hanging and boot storage. A few steps lead to the open plan lounge/kitchen with views across the roof tops to Skiddaw and Walla Crag, leather sofas, an extending dining table in the bay window and large flat screen TV.
On the next floor there is a spacious king size bedroom with ensuite shower room and a very large family bathroom with feature bath and shower cubicle.
On the top floor there are two further bedrooms. A second specious kingsize bedroom and a lovely twin room. The views from both these rooms is amazing and you really feel like you are a world away from the street below!
The owners welcome one well behaved dog but due to the town centre location this property does not have its own garden but the popular Fritz Park is located just one minutes' walk away.
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 village 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, Coledale Horeshoe 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.
