The lounge area, with welcoming log burning stove, is furnished with a comfortable leather sofa and armchairs and includes a large screen smart TV. The quality kitchen is well appointed and well equipped with electric hob and oven, fridge, freezer and dishwasher and incorporates a breakfast bar.

Heading upstairs there are three bright, modern and airy bedrooms to choose from, the first offers a kingsize bed, views to Skiddaw and TV; the second can be made up either as a twin bedded room or as a super kingsize double (please specify when booking), includes a TV and offers views above the rooftops to Cat Bells, Robinson and the mountains of the Newlands Valley; the third is a pretty single bedroom. The bedrooms are complemented by a quality, contemporary bathroom which includes a bath which is set along a fabulous feature slate wall, with monsoon shower over, a basin, WC and LED sensor mirror.
To the front of Greengarth there is private parking for two cars and to the rear there is a large patio area with table and chairs making it the ideal spot to relax with a glass of wine, morning coffee or dinner on a summers evening and beyond a pretty, lawned, cottage garden with herbaceous borders and mature shrubs.

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, 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.
