  • “Cottage was comfortable and clean.”

    Location was great and parking was a bonus although needed a name plaque by the hedge to help people find it. Listing said suitable for 4 cars but they would need to be small! Fits 2 easily. Map on site shows cottage on opposite side of road! However we had a great stay and reasonable weather helped.

The property

Sitting adjacent to the river and Fitz park within the bustling town of Keswick, Driftwood Cottage is an idyllic bungalow providing a wonderful base from which to explore the Lake District National Park.

Adorned with charming and traditional interiors, this warm and welcoming cottage is suited to family and friends alike, with so much adventure resting right on the doorstep.

Return from a fun-filled day walking the fells to this homely abode, kicking off your mud-splattered boots as you relax on the plush corner sofa that decorates the sitting room whilst enjoying the heat coming from the fire place where a woodburning stove sits.

Continue through to the kitchen/diner, where you can show off your culinary talents before serving up a hearty family feast.

Escape the excitement as you retreat to the sophisticated bathroom with chic black tiling and unwind with a long soak in the spacious tub with a handy overhead shower.

As you begin to feel yourself tire, whisk yourself away to one of the well-appointed bedrooms including two double bedrooms and a single.

Kick-start your days with a delicious cup of tea out in the garden, before grabbing your walking boots and heading to the shores of Derwentwater for an early morning stroll.

Admire breath-taking views from Friars Crag, or head out onto the waters to learn a new and exciting watersport.

Head to the heart of Keswick for a tour of Keswick Museum and Puzzling Place before a tasty lunch in one of the many charming cafés, or spend the day exploring Castlerigg Stone Circle and the encompassing fells.

Hike Grisedale Pike and Grasmoor, or dust off your bikes ahead of an exhilarating cycle through Whinlatter Forest Park, home to Go Ape Whinlatter.

Wander the grand halls of Mirehouse & Gardens, or enjoy an animal encounter like never before at Alpacaly Ever After.

Head to Crummock Water or Buttermere for some breathtaking scenery and visit Scale Force, the highest waterfall in the Lake District or learn of the life and works of William Wordsworth at the National Trust owned Wordsworth House and Garden, a pleasant drive away in the town of Cockermouth.

Live life to the full and escape to Driftwood Cottage in the Lake District.
