Welcome

Spectacular Views and peaceful locations at four holiday cottages offering self catering accommodation 1 mile from Keswick.

The holiday cottages are in the village of Applethwaite and can accommodate 2, 4 or 6 people. The facilities include wifi, parking and gardens. There are fell walks from the door and three restaurants and health spa facilities within walking distance – and easy access to many other areas of the Lake District.

We take many holidays in self catering accommodation ourselves and the cottages are carefully prepared with your comfort in mind. Each year between 40 and 50% of our bookings are from returning guests. Two of the cottages have ground floor bedrooms – Croft Corner for 2 and Upper House for 6.

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.
