Greta Cottage is listed in affiliation with Holiday Cottages.
Become immersed in historical character at the Grade II listed Greta Cottage. Dating back to the 1400s this property has been a smelting house and a chapel, but has since been refurbished to a high standard, stunning holiday home.
Sleeping up to four guests, the cottage is upside down, with the bedrooms on the ground floor. The master suite has a king size bed and en-suite, while the second bedroom comes complete with a super king bed that can also be converted into twin beds. There is also a slate tiled bathroom with a bath and walk-in shower.
There's access to the ground floor by a separate door, but the main entrance is up the slate steps which lead to the first floor and the living area. Although it has been renovated to a high spec, the cottage's rich history is still apparent with elements dating back hundreds of years. The living area has a corner sofa and armchair around the large wood burning stove, with the open plan design leading into the kitchen. This is complete with an electric oven, gas hob integrated into an island worktop, microwave, dishwasher, integrated fridge-freezer, and washer-dryer. There is also an oak dining table seating up to six guests, making it a great spot for evening meals in with friends.
A spiral staircase leads down to the living quarters, where there is also access to the riverside patio at the rear of Greta Cottage. A nice sun-trap, the patio has outdoor furniture and a barbecue both situated by the River Greta. There is also a slate patio at the front of the property alongside the parking space and bike rail.
The cottage is located in Keswick, known as the jewel in the Lake District's crown. It is a beautiful market town with an array of eateries, pubs, and independent shops. Sat on the shores of the picturesque Derwentwater, the town has a number of walking and cycling routes nearby, and the ancient and mysterious Castlerigg stone circle is less than a mile away, which dates back to 3000BC.
