Only the finest materials have been used, from travertine floor tiles to slate work surfaces and quality bathroom fittings. Combined with luxury furnishings and accessories and a wealth of appliances to create a unique self catering 'cottage' of an excellent standard. Situated on the bank of the fast flowing Applethwaite Gill at the foot of the mighty 'Skiddaw', in the peaceful hamlet of Applethwaite, 1 mile from Keswick. The property has 70 metres of river bank with limited level ground.
Quotes from our guests
Well what can we say - Eva's 60th Birthday and what a marvellous property to celebrate - The house had everything we needed, space, superb equipped rooms - super efficient central heating and log fire (we brought loads). The kitchen had all we needed to ensure the cuisine was up to scratch - It was the coldest winter most of us can remember and to walk across the ice of Derwentwater to the centre Island was " memories are made of this" Congratulations to the owners of Mill Race and Cumbrian Cottages for one of our holidays to remember for a life time.

Keswick is overlooked by spectacular scenery including the towering Skiddaw and Lonscale Fell to the north and Derwentwater a stones throw away to the south, in the heart of the Northern Lakes.
The market town gained its original charter in 1276 and although small it now forms the hub of the Northern Lake District. Keswick has great character with its well tended appearance (Winning several national awards); two large parks close to the town centre, speciality, gift and outdoor shops and a range of outdoor and indoor attractions.
Close by is the 4000 year old Castlerigg Stone Circle and the shores of Derwentwater are a mere stroll away past the Theatre by the Lake. During the summer months visitors can enjoy a free minibus service run by the National Trust from Keswick linking into round trips to Buttermere.
Keswick is a great base for a holiday in the Lake District with plenty of facilities close at hand but in the midst of beautiful north Lakeland countryside.

Once again a thoroughly enjoyable stay in a prime property with first class facilities
The property was fantastic! On arrival we were greeted by Christmas decorations which were lovely and immediately put us in the Christmas mood! The standard of furnishings was very high. It was like a home from home - we missed nothing! We had a fantastic Christmas and would love to do it again!
A really lovely property with excellent facilities in a beautiful location. Would definitely stay there again if I ever need a property for 8 adults again.
