Welcome

Spectacular Views and peaceful locations at two holiday cottages offering self catering accommodation for 2 and 4 people 1 mile from Keswick at Applethwaite.

The cottages are both Visit England 4 stars with a Gold Award and are managed and maintained by us as the owners. There are fell walks from the door and a pub and 3 restaurants within walking distance – also a health spa. The facilities include wifi, parking and gardens. Croft Corner for 2 has accommodation all on the ground floor. There is easy access to many other areas of the Lake District.

We have taken many holidays in self catering accommodation ourselves and have prepared our cottages with guest comfort in mind. Each year between 40 and 50% of our bookings are from returning guests.

Applethwaite is an unspoilt hamlet which nestles at the foot of Skiddaw. Wainwright felt that the view from Skiddaw Little Man “commands the most beautiful and comprehensive view of the Lake District” – that view is out over Applethwaite and over Croft House to Keswick and Derwentwater and the fells beyond.

We hope that one of our cottages will be of interest to you – there is an overview on the “Cottages” page and from there you can access the pages for each cottage. Sometimes we have late availability – see our “Special Offers” page for last minute booking opportunities.
