About the property

Cottage in Braithwaite, Nr. Keswick, Lake District, Cumbria, England

Spa Cottage sits in Braithwaite, a pretty Lakeland village in the North Lakes tucked between Grisedale Pike and Skiddaw where the unspoilt Newlands Dale joins the Valley of Derwent. The cottage stands in a row of old stone cottages dating back to the early 19th century at the side of the Coledale beck. Bassenthwaite Lake and Derwent are within 5 minutes and the Valleys of Borrowdale, Buttermere and the Whinlatter Forest (Go Ape/Mountain bike trails) are close by. The village store carries a comprehensive range of grocery products, newspapers and off licence goods. The Coledale, The Middle Ruddings and The Royal Oak pubs (all in the village and within walking distance) serve excellent food and children are welcome.

Broadband and Wi-Fi is connected and free. Private rear garden. A warm cottage heated by storage radiators with a wood burning stove in the living room for cold evenings. Summer (April-Sept) changeover day Saturday. October-March short breaks also available (Sat-Tues or Tues-Sat) - contact owners directly for relevant prices.

Beautiful cottage in a stunning village

  • 5 of 5

Spent the weekend in this lovely cottage in Braithwaite. Beautifully furnished and warm and cosy just what we needed for a break in early March. Spotlessly clean, well maintained and cared for, with little extra touches, information on walks, it had a real 'home from home' feeling. It was extremely clean and well maintained and was exactly as it had appeared on the photos. Communication with the owner was excellent. Oh and I forgot to mention the great pub 2 minutes walk away where we had a lovely meal accompanied by our golden retriever. We'll be back!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Loved this cottage and the location was fabulous. Very well equipped and very central to Keswick and the surrounding areas. Lovely dog friendly pubs in the village and beautiful furnishings and decor in the cottage along with the log burner made it a welcome retreat to come home to. We had an amazing time even though it rained for most of it! We will definitely be back in the future.

Gorgeous cottage and gorgeous village

  • 5 of 5

Did not want to leave, I've suffered insomnia, first time in months I actually looked forward to going to bed, because I actually slept. It was bitter cold when we stayed, but had the fire going, not cold at all in the cottage. We didn't drive anywhere all weekend, fantastic views, good choice of pubs, dog friendly and human friendly, perfectly unique place.

Perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time and absolutely loved the cottage. It is very well equiped, and there are beautiful walks starting from the cottage, ideal for family with a dog. We loved the fireplace and pretty much everything in the cottage! We'll definitely book again.
