Photo of Orchard Barn Self Catering Accommodation
A superb family house with fabulous views. Orchard Barn sleeps up to twelve in six bedrooms, and has a huge lounge, fully equipped kitchen, dining room and large private garden. Pets and children are welcome, and it’s ideal for two families or walking groups. Just two miles from Keswick in the heart of the Lake District, this is an ideal walking or climbing centre, or for visits to the hundreds of Lakeland attractions. Two bedrooms have double beds, the rest have twin beds, and there is a bathroom, a shower room and a further WC. Storage heater central heating and an optional coal fire keep the house snug in the coldest of winters. Outside the patio is well equipped with seats and picnic tables and faces South with fabulous views over the valley and mountains. Let’s start wide and then narrow down… Yes, we’re in the Lake District, the most beautiful area of the country, with big mountains, delightful lakes and tarns, all the colourful history from the Ancient Britons with their stone circles, through the Romans with their forts and castles, to the Vikings and all those lovely place-names. And yes, there are hundreds of things to do: every sort of water sport; every sort of walk form the gentlest of strolls by the lake to the hardest of slogs up Scafell, or a hundred other mountains; loads of places to visit –castles, animal parks, narrow gauge railways, steam and mining museums, the Bassenthwaite Ospreys, Then there’s all those authors, -Beatrix Potter, Wordsworth, Coleridge and so on. But better than that, we’re very near Keswick, the jewel in the Lake District. A perfect town, between two lakes, -Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite. A town with all you could want, -cinema, a great theatre with a tremendous variety of shows, museums, art galleries, and the best outdoor equipment shopping centre in the country. Add in friendly pubs, where children and dogs are welcome, and bar meals good value; add in Lake Derwentwater, lapping at Keswick’s toes; add in the truly magnificent scenery, and there really can be nowhere better for a holiday. And we have two lovely big houses just thirty yards apart in the hamlet of Applethwaite, a couple of miles out of Keswick. Near enough for all the action; far enough out to be deep country, with quiet lanes, walks all over the place, and no hustle and bustle to spoil the magnificent atmosphere and views. Applethwaite was by-passed long before by-passes were invented, and has been ever since. It nestles at the foot of mighty Skiddaw, a 3000’ mountain, facing due south and soaking up all the sun that’s going. So there it is; two lovely houses in a beautiful hamlet, just a couple of miles from Keswick, the prettiest town in the Lake District, -the best holiday location in the country. What are you waiting for?
