Owl Cottage

Self Catering

If you want to get away from the stresses of everyday life and relax in a magnificent setting with unobstructed mountain views, this charming holiday home is the place for you. This cottage is ideal for adults since it is located in the unusually calm village of Applethwaite and oozes character, with delightful areas both inside and out to unwind in after a day of sightseeing.

What makes a stay at Owl Cottage unique?

Owl Cottage is a characterful retreat that's just bursting with charm with all sorts of interesting knick-knacks decorating the space. The accommodation is all on the ground floor, with only a few steps into some of the rooms. Glorious mountain views surround you, and can be enjoyed from inside or out.

What is the capacity for Owl Cottage?

Owl Cottage sleeps up to four guests at one time. The cottage boasts 2 bedrooms: 1 king-size room and 1 twin. There are also 2 bathrooms: 1 Jack and Jill en suite shower room and 1 family bathroom with shower over the bath. 

What can guests enjoy when staying in the Kewsick area?

Applethwaite, with only a few dozen houses, is the most sought-after village in the Keswick area, and it's easy to see why. The village is a peaceful little hamlet with a praceful feel. Despite this, you're only a mile and a half from all that Keswick has to offer: attractions and facilities galore!

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. There are long- and short-distance walking paths, limitless history and culture to enjoy, and an unparalleled array of outdoor activities to try in some very eye-catching locations.

Where can guests enjoy food and drink?

Just a short drive from Applethwaite is the popular market town of Keswick. This bustling place has restaurants, cafes, pubs and bars galore, so you can pick the food and drink that suits you. Nearby Lyzzick Hall has an excellent reputation and serves lunches and dinners to non-residents.
