A superb semi-detached bungalow with wonderful views on an attractive site within a pleasant residential area on the edge of Keswick, between Fitz Park and the lower slopes of Latrigg. ‘Blencathra’ is about a 10 minute easy stroll to Keswick’s Market Square. The property has been tastefully decorated to provide fresh and immaculately clean accommodation for up to four guests.
‘Blencathra’ has ample parking, full double glazing and gas central heating. All radiators can be individually thermostatically controlled. The bungalow is situated at the top of a small, quiet cul-de-sac. It has a westerly aspect and the fells from Coledale, across Whinlatter Forest to Barf and Skiddaw make a spectacular panorama to the front. At the rear of the property there is a spacious garden providing a peaceful, leafy green area in which to relax and enjoy views of Skiddaw and Latrigg. Red squirrels are charming, frequent visitors. Patio furniture is provided for the summer months so guests can make the most of the tranquillity.
To the left of the front door is the comfortable lounge with outstanding westerly views. Furnished with a quality leather suite, television, DVD and living flame gas fire it is warm and cosy at any time of the year.
The superb double glazed conservatory at the rear of the bungalow provides a quiet and peaceful additional space in which to relax.
The kitchen/diner has very well equipped quality wooden units, an electric oven with a gas hob, extractor fan, washer/dryer, CD/radio and a larder fridge. The freezer is located in the garage which is also a useful area for drying wet clothes - and sorting out walking boots!
There are two good sized bedrooms, one with double bed and the other with two single beds, both having quality mattresses and furniture plus beds dressed in luxury linen and towels. Please note that this property is not suitable for children under the age of 12 years old.

A lovely property within a short walk into keswick centre but far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet. Personally the bed was not as comfortable as our own but you can't cater for everyone. We often enjoyed sitting in the conservatory and seeing the fabulous views. There are some friendly pheasants who come into the garden from time to time. The shower was strong and a fab temperature. A short walk to the pheasant pub, Latrigg and other fells. The kitchen has everything you could need. A hairdryer is also provided in the bedroom. To make the property even better some coat hooks in the small cupboard or a coat stand would be useful.
We absolutely loved staying at Blencathra the views out of the front and back were very impressive. The garden was amazing including the visiting wildlife. We will be back!
A great house, with amazing views and the conservatory is a great place to spend a sunny or a rainy day. We really enjoyed the location - close to all the shops and amenities in Keswick as well as easy access to hills (Latrigg and Skiddaw)
