Travel cot and highchair available on request. Welcome pack.\n\n Large enclosed lawned garden with patio and garden furniture. Bike store. On road parking. No smoking.\n\n As soon as you arrive at Apple Tree Cottage you’ll know you’ve made a great choice. Just stand at the bottom of this beautifully manicured and well thought out garden looking back towards the cottage and you’ll think you’ve just picked up a post card from the local gift shop. This terraced cottage gets its name from the mature apple tree in the garden which in season provides a harvest of plump fruit which guests are welcome to enjoy. Guests will love the stylish décor and thought which has gone into the interior design. Fully refurbished and newly listed for 2018 Apple Tree Cottage has all the modern amenities you need for 21st century living without losing any of the authentic character and charm that this delightful cottage delivers.\nThis quiet village location means that you can escape and retreat to the countryside in no time. On the first floor you’ll find two bright bedrooms and a family bathroom making it perfect for two couples and also great for families whilst downstairs features a well-equipped kitchen and spacious living room. Relaxing in the living room you can enjoy great views out to the lovely garden where you can often see birds feeding and even red squirrels which help themselves to the monkey nuts from the feeder. The enclosed lawned garden is a great place to soak up the sunshine complete with plenty of colour in the rockery and flower beds and best of all provides easy access to the village pub via the garden gate. You are just 100 yards from a range of local cask ales and great food that bring a refreshing reward after a day of adventure in the countryside. Whether you like walking hiking or cycling you are never too far away from your next adventure. There is good access to plenty of walking and cycle routes nearby as well as more challenging fells including Skiddaw Catbells Latrigg and Blencathra to name a few.\nJust 2 miles away is The Lake District Wildlife Park with over 100 species of wild animals great fun for the family. Also nearby is The Lakes Distillery offering tasting tours and are producers of fine whisky gin and vodka always a hit with the adults. The cottage is just 8 miles from the popular town of Keswick on the shores of Derwentwater with an abundance of dining and shopping experiences. The Pencil Museum is home to the world’s largest pencil and The Theatre by the Lake offers award winning arts and drama and the mind-boggling world of The Puzzling Place is fun for all ages. Or why not take a trip to Cockermouth 8 miles the birthplace of William Wordsworth. Beach 17 miles. Shop ½ mile pub and restaurant 100 yards.

    We had a lovely time, Michael was very helpful and we appreciated the welcome basket. Enjoyed it so much have booked again for the summer, many thanks

    An all too brief stay, but an extremely enjoyable one, made even better by the excellent and unexpected welcome pack awaiting our arrival (including a cake to die for, well to fight over anyway). The cottage itself has been decorated and furnished in a quiet, understated way, very well appointed and spotlessly clean, tidy and comfortable throughout. We were looking for walking days, from the village, taking in both lakeside and mountain terrain. We were not disappointed. I can recommend the walk up Ullock Pike from which there is a horseshoe extension that takes in the summit of Skiddaw - and all within sight of the cottage way down below. A rewarding pint in The Sun Inn on returning leaves one facing a fully twenty seconds walk back to the cottage. Shopping is best done on the way to the village as there are no out of season facilities, but Keswick is close by and worth some time exploring anyway. Our hosts Michael and Hazel could not have done more to make our stay more enjoyable. I would heartily recommend the cottage for those wishing to immerse themselves in this quiet and lovely part of the Lakes.

    Great cottage apart from the very steep stairs. Lovely welcome pack and very clean. Heating didn’t come on so was a bit chilly in the evening and first thing in the morning. Duvet was a bit heavy for us but probably most people would like it.

    Comfortable, clean and stylish; pub next door and fantastic walking from the front door. Owners very helpful and welcoming. A lovely place to relax and chill out.

    We enjoyed our stay in Apple Tree. The owners were very helpful and welcoming and would have no problem recommending the cottage.

    The cottage is well maintained, clean and comfortable. The kitchen has all you need, there is even an ironing board but no iron. The stairs to upstairs are a challenge for anybody with mobility issues being quite steep and shallow. The garden is well kept and is a sun trap when the sun shines. There is no back door. We were welcomed by the owner who left us with bread, eggs, marmalade, jam, milk , butter and a bottle of cava and a fruit cake. The village is quiet but does have a popular pub which was always busy with people eating whenever we popped in. The nearest shop is at the camping site which is a ten to fifteen minute walk away. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    We have stayed in various cottages over the years but this has to be one of the best. Everything you could want plus a warm welcome from the cottage owner Michael.

    Lovely cottage. Modern decor,but very monochrome. Needs some colour added as grey everything became depressing as it was cloudy outside all week. Beds were comfortable. Needs roller blind at bathroom door for privacy. Dvd hummed when playing. Garden tidy and relaxing. Ideal for walks from cottage.

    Lovely cottage with private well maintained garden. Stairs are fairly steep for anyone who may have mobility challenges.

    Lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Greeted by owner who explained everything about the property. Welcome hamper was a lovely treat. Good powerful shower after a long walk!!!!

    Excellent cottage, very well appointed. Spotlessly clean and everything one needs is there. The hosts were very friendly and there was an attractive welcome basket, including some fresh eggs, bread and milk (very useful since we forgot to take any with us). A quiet and peaceful part of the Lakes, well away from the honeypots and crowds, yet only 15 minutes from Keswick. The garden is well cared for and attractive..a lovely place to sit in when the weather is good. The Sun Inn is just next door, and serves good quality pub food, if a little expensive. There is no village shop, but Booths supermarket in Keswick is excellent. One watch out in the cottage is the stairs, which are quite steep and could be problematic for anyone with impaired mobility. Overall an ideal bolt-hole. Would we go again? Definitely!
