Walnut Cottage is situated on the lower slopes of Skiddaw facing due West, with outstanding panoramic views over Bassenthwaite Lake and the fells beyond. Keswick is just 4.5 miles away and the Osprey viewing point at Mirehouse just 2 minutes away with Bassenthwaite village close by. 

The cottage is cosy, full of charm and character and retains the original oak beamed ceilings. It has recently been refurbished and tastefully decorated and furnished to a high standard.


Guests have the use of a private garden and orchard immediately opposite.   Facing due West it is ideal for sitting out and enjoying the late evening sun and the frequent spectacular sunsets.

Walnut Cottage provides an excellent base for either complete relaxation or for exploring the Lake District by car, bicycle, on foot or by using public transport (which is close at hand).
