    Rental Home – 
    5 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9
    This traditional Lakeland farmhouse sits nestled on the southern slopes of Blencathra in a quiet rural setting just outside the village of Threlkeld. The location in the heart of the Lake District National Park is ideal for keen walkers and cyclists, though the property also makes an excellent base for those who wish to simply relax and enjoy the stunning views and local wildlife. Lambs graze in the field behind Ings and the large south facing garden is frequented by red squirrels and a wide variety of bird life. The property is reached up a tree lined track through a five-barred gate from the lane.

This house is ideal for two families or a number of adults and children. The facilities are excellent to include two large lounges and sizeable kitchen. There is ample garden and the surrounding area and the views are really amazing if you like this part of the Lakes. Walks start from the back gate! It is easy to get to... more

A very well-presented, well-equipped house. It was an ideal base for our family group, ranging in age from 70's to 40's to teens to young children. We particularly liked: - the huge upstairs lounge, full of books, games, large TV and sofas. - the great views from all windows - the large main bedroom and good, firm mattresses. - the... more
