1 The Barns is a converted 19th-century semi-detached barn that has been refurbished to offer a high standard of self-catering holiday accommodation for up to six guests. Easily mixing characterful features - such as exposed stone walls and a wood burner - with modern furnishings and fittings, this pet friendly property is a wonderful place to start your adventures into the Lake District.
Picturesque Guardhouse offers a peaceful rural setting close to Threlkeld and Keswick. The River Glenderamackin passes through the hamlet and there is a pleasant footpath along its banks, perfect for a gentle stroll before dinner! The cottage itself is overlooked by the impressive craggy ridges of Blencathra, with Clough Head and Great Dodd to the south. Guardhouse is also conveniently located half a mile from the A66, making it the perfect location for accessing the wider Lake District while still being far enough away from the main roads to enjoy the peace and quiet of your surroundings.
A brisk 15-minute walk along a signed footpath brings you to The White Horse pub at Scales while the nearby village of Threlkeld offers two pubs to choose from. Keswick is a 10-minute drive away: this bustling market town has plenty of offering including places to eat, pubs, shops, and attractions.
1 The Barns is the perfect holiday cottage if you're looking for a tranquil setting close to the best attractions of the Lake District!
