Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday cottage in Keswick - E4578

Cottage in Uldale, Near Keswick, Lake District, Cumbria, England - Pub With Restaurant, Tea Room/Art Gallery And Playground In The Village, Walks From The Door.

Emerald Bank Cottage is situated in the most spectacular northern part of the Lake District. It looks like a traditional lakeland cottage but has every modern appliance, with everything you’ll need for a walking or family holiday in the Lake District - including maps, walking books, boot racks, dog basket/bowls and a games room with table football and air hockey. The cottage is situated in Uldale, a small rural village in the Lake District National Park between Bassenthwaite Lake and Caldbeck. The village has a tea room, tennis court and adventure playground and the Snooty Fox Inn - serving a variety of real ales and superb food. This part of Cumbria is beautiful and quiet, excellent for walking away from the crowds. There are walks straight from the door, with sightings of birds of prey and red squirrels commonplace. The lakes of Bassenthwaite, Buttermere, Crummock, Derwent, Ullswater, Loweswater, Ennerdale are a short drive away. Keswick or Cockermouth are 15 mins away.

  • children welcome

About Kay Wesley

We are Kay and Mike Wesley. We live in Cheshire and we have five children and a dog. We all love the great outdoors, walking, picnicking and just messing about in the countryside. We like the Highlands of Scotland and the Lake District best. We have been to the cottage lots and it is a really lovely place to just hang out, somehow seems really easy to be there and everyone is always in a good mood. Several family members have also been with gangs of friends too, which is great, and lots of friends' families have stayed. Everyone loves it and wants to come back again. So do we!

Kay Wesley purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Kay Wesley chose Keswick

We chose Emerald Bank Cottage because it is in our favourite part of the Lakes 'where the crowds don't go' and the scenery here is breathtaking, without any litter, noise or traffic. The northern Lakes are just fabulous. I think our favourite is possibly Loweswater, which hardly anyone visits, but is just lovely and a nice 5 miles round to walk with woodland and fell included in the walk. Follow it up with Steak and Ale Pie at the Kirkstile Inn and their own brewed beer. Lovely Buttermere is beautiful with a flat 4-mile walk round and also with a couple of good pubs for lunch at one end. Crummock Water is also fantastic and very quiet, with a lovely walk through the woods at the north end.

What makes this cottage unique

We've tried to think of everything we have ever wanted on all the many self-catering holidays we have been on. People remark on how well-equipped it is, from plenty of wine glasses to the iPod dock. And everyone loves the games room for evening competitions! We know how annoying it is when there is nowhere to hang your wet cagoule so we had the utility room extended to include a drying area with hooks above a big radiator, and boot racks too. We included a dog basket and dog bowls, and even bird feeders in the garden. We've added a hose in the side yard to wash your muddy boots and dog. We've included Ordinance Survey Maps of the whole Lake District as well as a number of good walking books.

Our approach has worked, everyone loves staying here as much as we do - hope you do, too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Lovely Cottage. A perfect New Year’s Eve destination. The walk around Loweswater is stunning, as is the hotchoc at the Kirkstile Inn. In such beautiful snowy surroundings, who wouldn’t enjoy a weekend at this lovely cottage."



"We have stayed in many places in the Lake District and this has certainly been the best standard. But not only that – you have really gone out of your way to make sure there is everything a family could possibly need and it really was all very much appreciated and many thanks!"



"Really lovely cottage. Special week. Mixture of sunshine and rain but really peaceful here. You have made a wonderful effort to make this cottage comfortable and homely. Thank you very much (and what nice people live in Uldale and Caldbeck!)."



"Very nice house, home! Thank you for the letting of such a well looked after house with its excellent facilities and kitchen equipment. Much appreciated!"
