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

The two holiday cottages are Visit England 4 stars – and both have a Gold Award. They are located in the village of Applethwaite. 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 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. Croft Corner for 2 has accommodation all on the ground floor.

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.
