Daisy Cottage, Derwent Street, Keswick
The Lake District, Cumbria.
A beautiful little two bedroom cottage, in a private square just off of Derwent Street, in the centre of Keswick. Parking for one car.
A five minute walk from George Fisher & the town centre.
Ten minutes from Derwent Water.
Visit the fantastic little cinema, again 5 minutes away.
Very good facilities,
So much to do in the area. A wonderful place to stay,

Snowdon View, 3 Field Terrace, Llanberis
Snowdonia / Eryri, North Wales
A handy three bedroom, one bathroom cottage in the centre of Llanberis, literally 2 minutes walk from the town centre. We found this cottage excellent for the few days we were there. There is limited parking, you will need to drop off your gear, then go and park. 
We had no problem with noise, as some people have reported
There are lots of shops to visit in the centre of the village, and excellent eateries. 
Snowdonia or Eryri & Snowdon/Yr Wyddfa have so many places to walk, climb & cycle. A lot more compact than the Lake District.
An excellent  range of outdoor shops in the town too.

A really good shop for everything outdoors. Stores throughout the Country. They have an excellent choice of equipment & knowledgeable staff
