About the property

House in Grange-in-Borrowdale Nr. Keswick, Lake District, Cumbria, England. - Stunning Mountain Scenery In The Jaws Of Borrowdale

Situated just over the ancient twin-spanned bridge in the centre of Grange in Borrowdale. How Cottage is a traditional whitewashed stone cottage overlooking the green just past Grange Bridge Tea Rooms and next to Grange Cafe. The village of Grange dates back to the establishment of Home Farm in 1209 by the monks of Furness Abbey. How cottage forms the middle cottage of a row of 3 formerly occupied by a barn. The thickness of the stone walls are testament to its history.

Grange lies just south of Derwentwater and is reached along Borrowdale Road from out of Keswick and passing alongside the Lake and south of the famous Lodore Falls. This is mountain country of stunning scenery; to the south there is Great Gable, Green Gable, Glaramara and Scafell. The front of the cottage looks out over Grange Fell whilst the rear has stunning views to Maiden Moor and beyond to Cat Bells. After the day's exertions, there is a restaurant at the Borrrowdale Gates or at the Scafell Hotel, Rosthwaite.

Lovely cottage in absolutely gorgeous setting.

  • 4 of 5

Clean, well stocked cottage with amazing views. Tastefully decorated. The only need was somewhere to dry wet clothes when weather not so good - but a very minor point!

Perfect to explore the surrounding area which is just wonderful. Lots of super walks right from the doorstep - loved Catbells, Castle Crag, King's How to name a few and the walk around the lake was good too (though did get a bit lost at one point!). Such a wealth of bird.ife and flora to enjoy as well. Keswick is very near and the museum there and the Puzzling place are superb if there is a bad weather day. If you want to eat out in Keswick, would book in advance in summer months.

Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

We shared this lovely cottage with other members of our family for a week in July. It is a warm, very comfortable and well-equipped cottage in a stunning location. It had everything we needed and was more spacious than we expected. The property was very clean and well- maintained and the beds very comfortable. The setting is idyllic and our grandchildren enjoyed playing in the river nearby which was very safe. There is a tearoom only yards from the back door and another close by at the front. Two lovely stone humpbacked bridges bring you into Grange and Keswick is only a short journey in one direction with lots of great restaurants and things to do,and in the other direction one of the most beautiful drives( or walks/cycles for the more energetic)

We all loved staying in this beautiful cottage and would highly recommend it. Our grandson tried to persuade his mum and dad to sell their house and buy How Cottage so that says it all
