A city-style apartment in the heart of the Lake District...

When it comes to weekend accommodation, you’d be forgiven for associating the Lakes with nothing more than little lavish lodges and cosy B&Bs. But, as we’ve discovered, it’s also a place to discover cool, city-style apartments.

Take Kingfisher – a modern first-floor apartment in the heart of Keswick, ideal for couples looking for a comfortable and stylish base from which to explore the Lakes’ rugged beauty.

It’s one of seven apartments in Easedale House, a Victorian lakeland building dating back to 1860, set in a quiet side street (guests receive a private parking permit), just a short stroll from the town centre and its pubs, restaurants, shops, art-deco cinema, theatre and attractions.

The apartment offers open plan living and the light and airy living space/kitchen and diner have been stylishly modernised from top to toe – though an original (and rather beautiful) Victorian fireplace is still in tact.

Other highlights include a smart TV, two-seater leather sofa and retro G-Plan sideboard. The dining table seats up to four, positioned next to the double windows, which look out to Southey Street and across to the slate-built Keswick Methodist Church. A lovely view indeed.

Over in the kitchen, you’ll find all your usual appliances, including a fully-working fan oven, dishwasher and fridge, and in the bedroom (which looks out over the back of the house), you’ll discover a kingsize bed, plenty of wardrobe storage and a luxurious and uber-modern en-suite, decked out with a rainforest-style shower – our favourite.
