Property code: 86395

Spacious ground-floor apartment set in the pretty Borrowdale Valley, just 3 miles from Derwentwater. Lovers of the outdoors will be in their element here – a complete getaway from day-to-day life.

Stick chasers, rabbit sniffers and tufty-pawed scramblers will fall in love with the Borrowdale Valley in all its splendour, and where better to lay down a base than charming Rosthwaite. Situated just 6.5 miles from Keswick, this peaceful hamlet is home to a pub, tearooms and a shop that can be easily reached from your cosy apartment. Suitable for couples along with two pups, your accommodation is one of five apartments in a Victorian house.

Enter via the shared entrance and discover your cosy apartment on the ground floor. Fido will waste no time getting comfortable in the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, and you’ll have everything you need to prepare tasty treats in the kitchen. Relax in front of the TV or play card games at the table, slipping outside with your last cup of tea of the day to watch your hound play in the shared garden. At bedtime, there is a pretty double bedroom, and completing the property is a bathroom with a shower over the bath.

The surrounding fells provide ample walking opportunities straight from your doorstep, and just a short 4-mile drive will bring you to Derwentwater for lakeside strolls and water sports. Ideal for adventurous guests, the lake is a great location for paddleboarding, kayaking and sailing. Keswick (6.5 miles) is a treasure trove of friendly eateries, interesting shops and attractions such as a museum and the theatre by the lake. Further afield, Buttermere has some of the most famous views of the Lake District, inviting you to scamper along the footpaths and enjoy the scenery.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment, it was spotless, cosy, efficient heating and a great location allowing you to walk from the house. Its well equipped with everything we required and well appointed and a pub about 100 yards away. Excellent and would use this place again.

The cottage was comfortable and had everything we needed for our weeks stay. The location has a selection of walks ranging in length starting from there which was useful as we didn't have a car, this made getting groceries difficult with no local shop. However the bus into keswick was frequent and reliable and the open top made it an experience in Read moreitself. We would recommend a meal at the both the local pub and the longstanding Inn as food was delicious but busy so booking is a must. Hide

Very pleasant location. Nicely furnished flat and beautiful garden. The shortcomings were basically lack of laundering facilities and no tv instructions. We would definitely stay there again. Ann Emmons

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at Kiln How in 9 years. It is the perfect location for walking, once you have all your provisions you don't need to get in your car again till it's home time. There is a regular bus that runs through the valley. There are 2 pubs at the end of the drive, unfortunately at this time one was being renovated and the oRead morether only serving drinks. Accommodation cosy and has everything you need. Hide

Property was spotless on arrival, and the gratis bottle of wine greatly appreciated. The grounds, too, well maintained and tidy. A ground floor one-bedroom flat, it was just enough for two people looking to explore this extra-lovely part of the Lake District, as well as within reasonable driving distance to pretty much everywhere else.

A great location and a nice place to stay, well kept, with essentials provided. Whilst it is a dog-friendly place, this didn't suit us so well but will no doubt suit others. The management was responsive to queries.
