John Peel House is set in the quiet hamlet of Ruthwaite, in the beautiful northern Lake District. This semi-detached, period house has masses of character from beautiful beams and wood burners to a real Aga. A great feature of the house is the large inglenook fireplace, in the more formal living room, which was taken from the local manor house when it burnt down decades ago.
This spacious, well finished property benefits from two living rooms, as well as a large kitchen/dining room and utility room. This space allows you to make the most of your relaxing break, and is ideal both for families or groups of friends. The French doors in the dining room and living room make sure that in summer you can enjoy the large, fully enclosed gardens with views of the fells.
There are walks available right from the front door with Binsey Fell, which has a stunning viewpoint from the summit, not far away. It is only a short drive of around 20 minutes to both Keswick and Cockermouth, and only 15 minutes to Caldbeck. All three towns have a fantastic range of independent shops, pubs and restaurants to suit all tastes. Although for nights at home, the large, well equipped kitchen will make entertaining your friends and family a treat.
There is plenty to do in the area from local hills to walk, shopping in Keswick with its market and independent shops, or days of pampering at Armathwaite Hall Spa. Shop 1½ miles, pub and restaurant 1¼ miles.
