Nestled in the foothills of Skiddaw, the hamlet of Applethwaite is a little over a mile north of the beautiful market town and tourist centre of Keswick, offering a peaceful alternative to those holidaymakers seeking true tranquillity. Although home to only a few dozen houses, the hamlet and the surrounding area does offer a stunning array of well-equipped Cumbrian cottages. Cottages in Applethwaite therefore provide the perfect location from which to soak up the tranquillity of the Lakes whilst being able to enjoy the amenities available in the surrounding towns and villages. The region is famed for its association with the Lake Poets - namely Wordsworth, Southley and Coleridge - and attracts countless literary fans every year. Beatrix Potter also spent her summers in the two stately homes in the area, from which it is said she derived a lot of the material for her famous Peter Rabbit series. The nearby market town of Keswick is also home to the region's Victorian Museum and Art Gallery, in which visitors can see original manuscripts penned by the greats themselves. Applethwaite is also known by fellwalkers as the starting point of the ascent up Skiddaw mountain. Dedicated fellwalker Alfred Wainwright - famed for his seven hand-drawn Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells - has said of the mountain, "If I were asked by a stranger to the district to recommend a single climb that would give him a superb panorama I would send him up Skiddaw". Wainwright also described Skiddaw Little Man - a ridge reached en route to Skiddaw's 931m summit - as "the most beautiful and comprehensive view of the Lake District".
