The property

Keswick 7 miles and Cockermouth 5 miles. Enjoying expansive, countryside views, overlooking the Lake District National Park is Swinside, a lovely, two-bedroom lodge, set on the outskirts of High Lorton inbetween Cockermouth and Keswick. Enveloped by rural vistas and nature-filled walking trails, Swinside offers a well-equipped base for a self-catered break to the Lakes, inviting four guests and two furry companions. Park up off-road and take in the stillness of your surroundings. Climb the external steps to head into your new lodgings, firstly reaching the open-plan living space, the heart of the home; use this space to prepare meals, dine as a four, and unwind with the electric fire alight. When the weather allows, be sure to take advantage of the decked veranda, designed for an alfresco affair with hillside views in the backdrop. As day turns into night, catch some rest from the well-appointed bedrooms, including a king-size with en-suite cloakroom, and a twin, awakening to a refreshing shower in the compact shower room. Don your walking boots to explore this delightful region, all starting from Swinside. Note: This property can be booked with Ref. 1133603, together sleeping up to 8 guests.
