Spacious farmhouse situated just outside of the village of Threlkeld. The perfect escape for family or friends looking to explore the Lake District. With some lovely pubs within walking distance and the town of Keswick just a short drive away.

Sitting in the thriving village of Threlkeld, at the foot of Blencathra, this home is a perfect base from which to explore. Brimming with sophisticated style and features, this dwelling sleeps eight across four bedrooms, making it a great destination for family reunions or catching up with friends who share a love of the great outdoors. Spend your days treading paths close to home or explore further afield, before returning for an al fresco tipple or a cosy night in.

Climb external steps and make your way in through the front door, heading for the lounge on the left where you can relax and unwind, putting your feet up on one of two plump sofas. Switch on the Smart TV for a family movie afternoon. Step through the grand archway and lay the table for dinner before cooking up a storm in the sleek, stylish kitchen. Two fridge freezers and sleek appliances make rustling up meals a breeze. Gather at the island with a mug of coffee in the morning or a glass of something cold in the evening, or take a seat on a bar stool for an informal breakfast to start your day. Climb stairs to the first floor where three double bedrooms, a twin room and the family bathroom await. There is ample off-road parking.

Whether you prefer to explore on foot or take to two wheels and head out on your bike, there are plenty of tracks and trails to choose from. Hop on the Railway Path and make your way to the vibrant hub of Keswick, a 6.5-mile round trip from the local village and a lovely way to visit the town without jumping in the car. If little ones are joining you, entertain them with a day out at Go Ape (10.5 miles).

Definitely recommend this fabulous cottage (Doddick Middle). So comfortable - the kitchen is just amazing! Location is excellent for getting around to see all the lakes. We didnt get to the local pub White Horse as we went into Tier 4 but it looked a lovely. Threkheld within walking distance and there looked to be a lovely pub there. Whilst in TierRead more 2 we did eat at the Kings Head Inn which was very COVID safe and lovely food. No Washing machine/tumbler which would have been useful. Hide

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
