Lovely scenery around the cottage and ideal for walks up Blencathra. The local pub is nice though expensive and you have to walk up the hill to get home!

Parking outside but difficult to turn the car on the narrow road. Note that if planning to walk to Keswick from Threlkeld, the path along the railway track is closed for repair.

Hi Laura, it's such a great location isn't it? Yes, the path is being repaired following the damage done by Storm Desmond a few years ago which took a few bridges out. I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed plenty of walking - Blencathra is magnificent, isn't it?

All good. Only problem we had was that it took us several days to find the key for the separate washhouse - could make it clearer in instructions where this is

Hello, thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, it's a lovely place for a relaxing break isn't it?
I'm sorry you had a bit of a hunt to find the key, if you had given the office a call we would have been happy to help. I'll see if we can make the instructions a bit clearer.
I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.
