About Catherine Edgar

4 Ridgemount is owned by Catherine and John Edgar who lived in Cumbria for over 30 years, although we have now moved to Worcestershire. We are ardent walkers and love the theatre.

Catherine Edgar purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Catherine Edgar chose Keswick & North Lakes

Keswick is an ideal base for our family holidays as it allows us such easy walking access to the the lakes and is also an outlet for the cultural aspects of Keswick such as the famous theatre, book and jazz festivals etc. There are plenty of activities for families with young or older children in the town and in the area. Keswick also has a good choice of pubs and restaurants

The apartment is very cosy with stunning views, this is why we fell for it.

What makes this apartment unique

The benefit above other properties is that it is near but not in the town centre and is therefore quiet with good views yet close to amenities. We have off road private parking at the back of the property. We are on a bus route and also right next to the old railway track which is now a cycling and walking route.

We do not increase our prices over the summer or at holiday times.

Guestbook comments from the manager

- "A fantastic place to come and stay. Brilliant with kids. Porch even big enough to dry out the pushchair. Great walks right from the door and round the lake. Play in Fitz Park has become a firm favourite."



- "Lovely apartment. The perfect place for a refreshing week in the Lake District."



- "Great week's holiday. Lovely flat. Splendid views."

Fabulous apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent four nights here and have had a wonderful time! The location is perfect for Keswick, the views are stunning and the settees are extremely comfortable. The shower is fantastic! The whole flat is very spacious and airy but still feels cosy and there is everything you will need for a great stay. We only had one day of rain, but not a hardship at all with a lovely place to come back to after a drive to Buttermere. The rest of the week was glorious sunshine which was such a bonus and great to be able to get some decent walks in. We'll definitely be returning now that we have found such a gem of a place!

Clean, comfortable and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

A very nice apartment with lovely views. There is a path just behind (the old railway line) and you can walk into town in just a few minutes, enjoying the scenery as you go!

great apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

We (family of 3) stayed there for 3 nights during the Bank Holiday weekend.

Well equipped (including a very fast Wi-Fi) and very clean apartment with nice view of the mountains. The location is great, a short 15 mins walk to Keswick along a lovely path. Worth also walking along the path away from Keswick - a nice evening walk.

A great location to explore the Lakes. A number of walks can be done without using a car. We could only stay for 3 nights this time but we'll be back next year if not sooner.

Location

Travel:

The property has 2 dedicated parking spaces, although much can be enjoyed locally without the need for a car

Further Details:

Fitz park nearby, ideal for children.

Castlehead (162m, 531 feet), only ten minutes out of Keswick but with splendid views of the Borrowdale valley and beyond. The old railway track is now a first class level and quiet path to nearby Threlkeld, following and crossing the course of the River Greta, a lovely wooded valley.

Latrigg (367m, 1174 feet), easier to reach than it might look and with a glorious panorama of northern Lakeland from the summit.

Walla Crag is another lovely walk which you can start from Keswick and commands wonderful views over Derwentwater.

Derwentwater (about 9miles, 5 hours) and Buttermere (about 4 miles, 2-3 hours) have clear round the lake paths with minimal road use and splendid views. The Derwentwater walk can be staged by using the launch and bus services.

Catbells (445m, 1424') is an extremely popular fell to climb. Combined with a launch trip to or back from Keswick the options are to follow the ridge or take the easier terrace along this prominent fell.

Haystacks (582m, 1908'). A favourite of Wainwright and where he chose to have his ashes scattered.

This is a very varied route with great views into the Buttermere Valley.

For those wanting to tackle the highest peaks, the area contains England's highest mountains all within easy reach of Keswick, Skiddaw (931m, 3054'), The Scafells (977m, 3206'), Helvellyn (949m, 3116') and Great Gable (899m, 2949').
