About Craig Peart

We loved visiting the Lake District as a family and have spent many days climbing the local fells and visiting the local attractions over the years cementing my love for the area. So I jumped at the chance to look after and run Ferndale (also Shelterstone and Orchard House) not only to spend more time in the lakes but to let people enjoy visiting the Lakes.

Craig Peart purchased this bungalow in 1980

Why Craig Peart chose Keswick & North Lakes

Our family love the area, the north lake is a beautiful area with so much to do. Shelterstone is situated in Keswick which we love to visit.

The area is so easy to access from the house with a great choice of walks, Lakes and attractions on hand.

What makes this bungalow unique

The property is spacious and cosy benefiting from the views to the Lakeland hills which surround Keswick. The house has plenty of parking, patio and garden space.

Included in the rent (TILL THE END OF 2016) is use of the Keswick pool and gym for up to four guests. THIS WILL NO LONGER INCLUDES IN 2017.

Cosy, comfortable, perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

The house is really comfortable and extremely well equipped, the beds were very very comfortable, the tv was also a good size for a rental property, the location is also very good, it's on a quiet street and a comfortable walk into the town.

I would recommend this property for short or long stay, can't think of anything negative to say.

Comfort in Keswick

  • 5 of 5

We spent a delightful two weeks at Ferndale. The bungalow was spacious, comfortable and well situated for access to the town and in particular for the bus route of the 555.

The owner Craig and his family have been very helpful and prompt in solving a minor problem.

We can recommend this bungalow and we hope to be back.

Ferndale

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay for easy access to the centre of Keswick and Fitz Park, only a short 5-10 minutes walk. The little extras on arrival such as tea, coffee, milk, biscuits and not forgetting a bottle of wine help to make you feel at home.

We also stayed for a week in May. The property now has wifi for anyone who has withdrawal symptoms for internet access.

Map

Car: recommended

Special interest holidays:

Keswick just 20 minutes from junction 40 on the M6, is easily accessed down the A66 driving right in to the heart of the Lake District. Breathtaking scenery surrounds this popular Lakeland town as it is situated on the shores of Derwent Water and close to both Bassenthaite and Ullswater. There are some great family hills like Catbells or challenging peaks like Skiddaw which one of the highest in the Lake Districk.

There are many nearby attractions and extensive array of lakes and fells to explore. Vist Whinlatter forest where you can walk, bike or even climb through the trees -'Go Ape' is great for a challenge. View the only pair of Osprays in England which nest in the trees around Bassenthaite. On a wet day, The Rheged visitors centre which is 15 minutes down the road is great with shops, cafes, children play area and I-max cinema. Also at Honistor Slate mine you can scale the rock face of the famous Fleetworth Pike or explore the mine shafts deep into the mountain itself.

Distances:

There is plenty of choice when it comes to eating out with a great selection of eateries on the doorstep within walking distance. There is a variety of restaurants, hotels and lots of great pubs serving home cooked food and Lakeland ale. Fish and chips are a firm favourite or why not visit one of the delicious Keswick's bakeries.

Further Details:

The Lake District has many impressive mountains, open fells and beautiful lakes. The landscape has inspired several literary greats, including William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. You can cruise on a steam-powered yacht or walk the hills and valleys. There are simply so many great ways to explore the Lake District.

For the serious walker, the mountains of Skiddaw, Helvellyn or the highest peak in England, Scaffell Pike provide a great challenge. At lower levels there are hundreds of routes wandering among the lakes and

stone-walled fields.

You can even choose a lake to suit your mood: if bustling lakeside towns and exhilarating watersports take your fancy, then Windermere, Derwent Water and Coniston Water will suit. If its peace and tranquillity you seek then the secluded lakes of Buttermere and Wastwater are not to be missed. Yet Cumbria offers much more than the lakes alone. Explore the National Nature Reserve on Walney Island or visit the picturesque Duddon Valley, where the heather clad moors peppered with birch trees inspired many of Wordsworths poems.

There are a variety of castles, old statley homes and interesting Slate buildings across the area. You can even visit a working Slate mine and learn how the process begins. Whinlatter and Grizdale forests are great for mountain biking and walking, you can even Go Ape and climb through the trees. To the east lies the green and sheltered Eden Valley. Its dramatic landscape provides a range of activities including walking, cycling and watersports making for a perfect family day out.
