Ardale House is a comfortable, homey and perfectly formed retreat in popular Threlkeld and enjoys stunning views of the surrounding fells. Sleeping six people in three charming bedrooms sharing a stylish and spacious bathroom, Ardale House is a perfect base for getting together with family and friends. The cosy living room has an open coal fire for sociable evenings in whilst during the day it is a lovely bright room with windows front and back. There is a good chance of seeing Red Squirrels in the back garden, a great excuse for taking your time over a cuppa. The garden is quiet and private, a beautiful spot to spend some time relaxing.
Located on the edge of the pretty village of Threlkeld with popular pubs a short walk away and direct access to some of the best walks and cycle routes in the northern fells, Ardale House is a perfect base for exploring the area. Take a gentle stroll on to the top of Latrigg to watch the sunset over the western fells or set out for a full day walk onto Skiddaw or Blencathra by some of the lesser known routes. Explore St John's in the Vale, wander alongside the River Glenderamakin or stroll into Keswick: all these walks and more are available from your front door. Cyclists, too, will delight in direct access onto the network of bridleways as well as the opportunity to tackle the Lakeland passes.

Bustling Keswick is just 10 minutes away by car offering a range of cafes, restaurants and independent shops plus the renowned Theatre by the Lake. Keswick is also the place to head to for a wide range of outdoor adventure sports or a peaceful cruise on beautiful Derwentwater. The historic houses at Dalemain, Mirehouse and Hutton in the Forest offer the chance to look back to a slower age, tour the houses and gardens all of which are very different and then relax in the beautiful gardens before treating yourself in the cafés! Follow the Wordsworth trail to Grasmere and Cockermouth or find your own daffodils on the shores of Ullswater.
The only thing you can be sure of is that you will not run out of things to do and of course you will look forward to returning the the cosy embrace of Ardale House at the end of the day.
