Threlkeld, Keswick, Lake District, Cumbria, England
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.

The house is ideally situated, well presented and equipped. Walks from the door which is good for grandkids and grandma! Lovely pub (Horse and Farrier), great coffee shop locally. It will be even better once railway walk to Keswick is repaired. We had a great time and will be booking again.

Really great place to stay if you want to be close to Keswick and also the great walks nearby. Delightful village of Threkeld just a short walk with a couple of great pubs for food. Accomodation was ideal for our family with children and we will be returning again next year! Would definitely recommend this property as an ideal base...

A beautiful old farmhouse with stunning views across the fells. Everything you need for the lakes weather; beautiful garden for sunny days and indoor entertainment for when it rains. Feels secluded but only 4mls from Keswick. We had a great time.
