Butterfly Cottage is a sweet, bijoux cottage tucked down a quiet street in the popular Lake District market town of Keswick. It is a perfect romantic getaway for two plus an optional dog!
Found tucked down a quiet alley in the heart of Keswick in the Lake District, Butterfly Cottage is an ideal romantic getaway for two. Set just a few yards away from all of the town's amenities, it is within easy reach of pubs, cafes, restaurants, independent shops, an art deco cinema, lakeside theatre, and a wealth of attractions.
Butterfly Cottage boasts an open plan lounge (with cosy log burner), dining room, and kitchen and a king sized bedroom with en suite bathroom with an over-bath shower. Unusually for Keswick, there is also an outside patio area - perfect for al fresco dining in the summer - and a dedicated dog and boot washing area.
The jewel in Keswick's crown is Derwentwater, just a 5-minute walk away from the cottage. Down by the lake you can hire rowing boats, take a trip across the water on the Keswick Launch or pack a picnic and explore the lakeshore paths. It is also an ideal location for walkers, as the town is surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery and popular fell walks including Catbells and Blencathra are close by. Other attractions in and around the town include the mysterious Castlerigg Stone Circle, the Puzzling Place, the Derwent Pencil Museum, the Lake District Wildlife Park, Honister Slate Mine and Via Ferrata, Whinlatter Forest Park... the list goes on!
Keswick really has something for everyone - as well as a host of outdoor activities to get the adrenaline pumping, there are festivals throughout the year including a Film Festival, Words by the Water, the Jazz Festival, Keswick Mountain Festival, and a Beer Festival.
Whatever your taste, the pretty Butterfly Cottage provides a peaceful bolthole in the heart of the action!
