Set in the delightful Newlands Valley at the foot of Catbells and Causey Pike, Grisedale Cottage makes a great base for a holiday in any season. From here you can make the most of some of the finest peaks in the Lake District and with valley rambles for easier days and plenty of places to visit by car you will never be short of something to do.

For the more energetic the Newlands Adventure Centre is close by, offering a range of activities such as rock climbing, canoeing, ghyll scrambling and archery. For a more leisurely pace take a short walk to Derwentwater (about a mile and a half) and catch the launch from the pier to sail across to Keswick or down to Grange in Borrowdale. You can walk beside the nearby Newlands Beck, stroll up to the Swinside Inn for bar meals, or take a short drive to Braithwaite for the village shop and a choice of pubs. Keswick has year round theatre, cinema, markets and shopping.
