Initial fuel for open fire included. Lawned garden with patio and garden furniture. Private parking. No smoking.This 120 year old Lakeland stone cottage has been tastefully renovated and furnished and stands as one of a pair in the heart of the village of Threlkeld. With oak floors and many original features it cleverly combines a traditional cosy cottage ambience with a modern chic style. There are lovely fell views from the cottage and a pleasant rear garden. Standing at the foot of Blencathra there is superb walking from the doorstep plus there are two excellent local pubs serving food and real ale. The popular tourist town of Keswick situated on Derwentwater is just 4 miles. Bassenthwaite lake Thirlmere and Ullswater are all within easy reach. Keswick golf club is a mile away and there are well marked cycle routes running through the village. This is an excellent central holiday location for not only enjoying the spectacular local scenery and amenities but also good road access to the Lake District National Park.

    Apart from having to wash most of the kitchen equipment on arrival, the cottage was well equipped, cosy, comfy with beautiful surroundings. Loved seeing the red squirrel in the garden! Great dog friendly pub just up the road with lovely food. Lovely cafe opposite the cottage. Having the real fire was gorgeous to relax in front of. Loved this cottage.

    It was perfect for our family get together. The cottage was so cosy there was no need to go anywhere. It was easy to find, peaceful and quiet in stunning surroundings.
