This cosy couple’s bolthole with a hot tub, open-plan living space and wooden beamed ceilings is surrounded by the tranquil Northern Fells of the Lake District. Spend your time away enjoying romantic picnics, adventurous days out stargazing with your partner and cosy evenings in with a bottle of bubbly.

Step inside this elegant two-person cottage to find an open-plan living space with underfloor heating, sleek grey and wooden interiors plus rustic exposed stonework. To the right is an ‘L’-shaped farmhouse-style kitchen with wooden worktops and a contemporary high table with stools. On the opposite side of the room is a cosy lounge area with a plush velvet sofa. Also on the ground floor is a minimalist, spa-like shower room. Climb the stairs to reach a spacious king-size bedroom with countryside views, a seating area and a Smart TV. Outside is a patio with furniture and a private hot tub.

During your stay near the small village of Threlkeld (1 mile), explore the attractions on your doorstep, which include the Quarry and Mining Museum and the Keswick to Threlkeld Railway Path hiking trail (both within 1 mile). If you follow the trail, you’ll reach the lakeside market town of Keswick (6 miles), where you can pop into a snug cafe, visit the Illusions attraction, or spend an evening at the theatre. Stroll around Derwentwater (7.5 miles) or hire a canoe for a memorable adventure on the water. Also nearby are the ancient Castlerigg Stone Circle (3 miles) and the 868m mountain peak of Blencathra (6 miles).

We had a wonderful stay at The Sparrow. Such a beautiful, clean and well maintained property. A perfect spot for exploring the Northern Fells, and Keswick is only 10 minutes away.

Cleanest place we have ever stayed, with some lovely little welcome touches. Great location and what we felt value for money. Would recommend to anyone to stay here and hopefully return one day in the future.
