• About Doddick Farm Cottages - Shepherd’s Bield

    After a busy day exploring the local fells, relax in your own private hot tub and admire the night sky.

    Ground Floor:
    4 steps to entrance.
    Bedroom: With double bed.
    Shower room: With shower cubicle, toilet and heated towel rail.
    Lower Ground Floor:
    Living/dining room: With 32" Freeview TV.
    Kitchen: With electric oven, electric hob, microwave and fridge.

    Oil central heating, electricity, bed linen and towels included. Use of owner’s washing machine and tumble dryer.

    Small enclosed garden with terrace and garden furniture. Hot tub for 4 (private). Private parking for 1 car. No smoking.

    Situated on a working beef and sheep farm, this cute apartment with an upside down layout is connected to the owner’s farmhouse with a private entrance. It is well equipped and comes complete with its own private hot tub, so you can take a dip underneath the night sky. Just perfect to ease those aching muscles after a day of fell walking on the adjacent Blencathra. The property has a small enclosed garden area with artificial grass and patio furniture so you can sit out and relax. On the ground floor you will find a comfortable bedroom and a shower room, whilst on the lower ground floor, there is an open plan living/dining room featuring an electric recliner sofa and armchair with views across to the northern Lake District Fells, great to relax in after a day of adventure. The kitchen has been finished to a very good standard and offers everything you need for a comfortable stay.

    Threlkeld is a small village just off the A66 which is the main route between Penrith and Keswick. Almost directly opposite is Keswick Golf Club, so if you fancy a round while you are away, you couldn’t be much closer. The quaint villages of Threlkeld and Scales, along with a couple of local pubs offering great food and local cask ales, are both just a mile away. The property is 5 miles from the vibrant Lake District town of Keswick, which is brimming with great restaurants, pubs serving local craft ales, an excellent range of shopping experiences and some memorable tourist attractions. If you fancy something a bit different, then why not visit the Derwent Pencil Museum, home to the world’s largest pencil. The Puzzling Place, which is full of mind-boggling optical illusions, is also worth a visit. If you like culture, you could try the Theatre by the Lake, with its enviable position on the shores of Derwentwater, which offers award winning performances in drama and arts.

    If you like walking or cycling, you are surrounded by some of the most challenging and iconic fells in the area, as well as a number of less challenging walking routes suitable for people who like sightseeing without the strain. Keswick is at the northern end of Derwentwater, one of the area’s iconic lakes offering watersports, and is a great base and starting point for many an adventure. You can tick off a few of Wainwright’s 214 Lakeland Fells, including Skiddaw, Blencathra and Helvellyn within a few miles radius. For your next Lake District escape, with your own private hot tub, look no further than Shepherds Bield. Shop 4½ miles, pub ¾ mile and restaurant 1¼ miles.
    Shepherd’s Bield can be booked together with Harrison’s Lodge (UK1259), Lucy’s Lodge (UK1260), Grajo Lodge (UK1284), Darci’s Lodge (UK1297), Derwent Dale Cottage (UK1334), Brackendale (UK1335), Doddick Chase Cottage (UK1363) and The Rocking Lodge (UK11517) to accommodate up to 30 guests.

    Amazing little cottage with a hot tub! Close to Keswick town and local pub “The White Horse” beautiful food there! Very quiet and hidden away location! Very spacious to what we expected. Wifi and netflix was a nice little bonus! Hot tub could do with a cover for rainy nights but still made the most of it! Cant fault the cottage or location!

    On the cottages website it said it didn't have no WiFi but when I got there they did along with a smart tv. Quiet location you are left alone. Signs to the cottage you are staying at should be posted clearly as there's loads of cottages around the vicinity. The shower could be better it kept moving with the blast of the water, hot water was timed so if u wanted to have a shower outside of those times water would be cold. Instructions on how to use things etc. Should have been provided. Hot tub was great, it had speakers but didn't know to use them as no instructions given. Otherwise this place was brilliant nice to escape and relax in. Would been better if it had a freezer to put frozen food in.

    The cottage was spotlessly clean and the lounge recliner chairs were a delight. However on the downside the access to the cottage looked awful it was tucked away on a rough Farm track. The bedroom was the worst room it lacked any satisfactory hanging for your clothes the metal rail was awful . The bed was reasonably comfy and the pillows nice and soft. The old dressing table had no mirror or chair to enable my wife to sit and dry her hair plus there was no power point near. The bathroom was nice with a choice of two shower heads , towels were good size and nice and warm in the morning from the large towel rail. The kitchen was good well fitted out with all the necessary utensils ,the fridge lacked a freezer compartment. The hot tub was good but it's location at the back of the house was poor. No information provided on local services or attractions. Constant barking dogs !!.

    We enjoyed our recent stay at Shepherd's Bield. This is a basic, small cottage which seems newly furnished, carpeted etc and has a hot tub. Without the hot tub, I would struggle to recommend for the following reasons: No welcome from the owner upon arrival nor even a knock on the door to see if all was ok during our stay - we did not even know what the owner looked like. I appreciate this is a working farm and the owners are busy but they are running the cottages as a business and a little customer service would be nice. We were cold at night due to the fact there were no extra blankets provided. We were only provided with one bath towel each - when you shower, use the hot tub, then shower again, there is no way towels can be dried in time. No nice little extras - no shower gel, minimal washing up liquid, toilet rolls. There was a dead animal hanging from the roof of the barn opposite the cottage. Having said this, the location is great, with lovely views. The cottage is modern and clean and the kitchen is well equipped. The hot tub is brilliant although due to the fact it's not been placed on a flat surface, it was sloping to one side. I would recommend it because of the location, the price, the views and the hot tub.

    Lovely cottage, great location, easy to find and get to. Didn't see or speak to the owner on arrival, during our stay or on departure. Not that I minded but different from other places we have stayed where the owner is more visible and leaves a welcome bottle of wine or cakes!! Nothing really to complain about though as place well equipped and hot tub was fab.

    2nd stay this year, such a cosy little cottage ideal for walking/hiking in the Lake District, plenty of walks from the cottage, lovely walk into Keswick and if your tired you can get the bus back to the White Horse pub with less than a half mile walk back to the cottage, will be booking again for later in the year, superb accommodation

    Lovely little cottage, perfect for just two people. It had everything we needed in the kitchen. One hand and one bath towel each is provided so I recommend you take a beach towel for after the hot tub. No issues whatsoever with the hot tub. Hairdryer provided. Reclining settee and chair and Netflix and freeview on the TV. Little children's play area on site. Pub within walking distance does lovely food and the staff are great. Lots of places to walk. Taxi into Keswick is quite dear so check price beforehand.

    Absolutely perfect stay at Shepherds Bield! Accommodation was spotless, perfect location to access some amazing walks, lovely pub a short walk down the road and the hot tub was perfect at the end of a long day! The views were beatiful, and can be enjoyed while having a cup of tea in bed! Can't recommend enough! Thanks!
