Built in 1767 Parkergate has featured on the map and community of Bassenthwaite & Keswick for generations. Now a luxury large holiday home for a big family or group of friends to staycation, 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.

This self-catering cottage is steeped in history, as it used to be the hayloft attached to the main farmhouse, which was built in 1776. Outside, at the top of the steps is a wonderful balcony with views to the west stretching over to Bassenthwaite Lake and Sale Fell opposite.
Inside the accommodation
Inside the Loft you’ll find an open-plan kitchen / living room, which has a beautiful original beamed ceiling. It is a fully equipped kitchen and the dining area with seating for four around an old oak dining table. Next door to this is the main bedroom which has either a super-king bed or two singles. Stairs lead up & over the dining area, to a mezzanine floor with double bedroom. At living room level is a large bathroom with separate shower and bath.
This cottage is best suited to a family of four. Whilst we find it is very popular for couples indeed, it isn’t as romantic a layout of beds as some of our other cottages at Parkergate or Merewood.
Parkergate Loft benefits from a private outside upstairs balcony with outdoor table & chairs, so you really can make the most of the stunning surroundings.
