About Sunny Bank Cottage

Sunny Bank Cottage is a beautiful Cumbrian holiday cottage on a quiet lane close to the centre of Keswick with its plentiful shops, cafes, pubs and other amenities. The traditional house has a fresh, contemporary feel with the owners creating a stylish self-catering getaway where up to four people can sleep in two comfortable bedrooms. Cumbria and the Lake District are an unforgettable holiday destination with views that will take your breath away in any season. It's ideal for couples and families who want their accommodation to be as much a part of their happy holiday memories as the sights they see and the activities they enjoy.

Keswick is the perfect base for a self-catering holiday in the Lake District. The market town has a friendly, welcoming atmosphere with an excellent array of independent businesses providing everything you need. It's the most significant town in the Northern Lakes, and visitors have easy access not only to the gorgeous landscape of the national park but also to Hadrian's Wall and the Solway Coast. Visitors can climb Skiddaw, England's highest peak, or marvel at the depths of Derwentwater. Fell walking and mountain biking are two understandably popular ways to enjoy the landscape with trails in Catbells, Skiddaw, Blencathra and Whinlatter.

Local attractions include the Cumberland Pencil Museum, Keswick Museum and Art Gallery, Hope Park, Castlerigg, Fitz Park and the Theatre by the Lake. When the weather is sunny, take a trip on Derwentwater Launches, and when it rains, you can head indoors to the climbing centre, Alhambra Cinema or the indoor swimming pool. Further afield but still within reach for a day out are Ullswater, Cockermouth and Windermere.

The Lake District is full of amazing sights, fantastic food, exciting activities and family-friendly attractions to make it the perfect choice for a holiday at any time of the year. Staying at Sunny Bank Cottage gives you not just a base, but a home-away-from-home where you can unwind and relax in its lovely surroundings.
