Initial fuel for open fire included. Lawned garden with patio and garden furniture. Private parking. No smoking.\nThis 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. Shop 4 miles restaurant and pub 300 yards.\n" https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/130/840/1301229.jpg 23988

    An outstanding home from home experience which met our every need and more. Thanks to all.

    Lovely cottage, been several times. Great for children with secure garden. Threlkeld is a beautiful part of the Lakes.

    Lovely cottage! We stayed for a family break (4 adults and a Border Collie dog) and the cottage was very comfortable with a great garden. Good walks from the door or easy to travel further afield. The kitchen was well equipped for self-catering and the excellent Horse & Farrier (dog friendly) pub a few minutes walk away also did very good food. Would definitely book again.

    We got off to a bad start as we arrived at 3.30 to a cold, rather musty smelling cottage with a continuous, plaintively bleating smoke alarm. We think that it had not been occupied for the past couple of weeks. However, once we had taken the battery out of the alarm, lit the fire and fired up the central heating, we found that it was a large, warm, cosy, well-equipped cottage and we would probably use it again.

    Lovely stay at the very pleasant Guards Cottage. Excellent value for money and well equipped kitchen. Location at the foot of Blencathra was perfect. Especially liked the fact that all 3 bedrooms were spacious. I didn't find the mattress especially comfy in the twin room, but would certainly use again.

    Second stay at The Guards Cottage. Comfortable, spaceous and well equipped with large back garden and plenty on site parking. Great village location with Horse and Farrior Inn nearby (character pub serving good food) and nice coffee shop straight opposite cottage. Definitely intend returning.
