The Gin Case !

Stable Cottage

Sleeps 2-4

Built in 1767 Parkergate has featured on the map and community of Bassenthwaite & Keswick for generations. Now a collection of luxury holiday homes for couples, friends, family on UK Lake District staycations, Parkergate cottages are loved by many regular guests and new visitors.

With Skiddaw right behind, Blencathra and Helvellyn close by, as well as all the Derwent Fells and Western Lakes with Scafell Pike not far away, there is plenty for the active to achieve.

For days off – Keswick is a bustling traditional town to explore; or there are the Ospreys to view nesting in Dodd Wood by the MireHouse; ramble to Bassenthwaite Lake; Derwent Water for boating and much more. Being just off the A591 we are also easily accessible to other areas of the English Lake District of Cumbria.
