The charming Lakeland cottage is full of rustic charm and boasts a beautiful garden with spectacular views. Located in the walkers’ paradise of Threlkeld, with trails branching out in every direction.

Welcome to a beautifully refurbished Lakeland stone cottage for five people. With views to inspire, it's perfectly positioned to make the most of the all the fantastic walking opportunities on offer in the charming village of Threlkeld. Make the most of long summer evenings with a spot of al fresco dining in the large rear garden - you'll feel sad to leave this gem of a cottage!

Threlkeld is a wonderful Lakeland village. It's a paradise for fell walkers with majestic Blencathra, mighty Skiddaw and its smaller cousin Latrigg all on offer straight from the front door; for a slightly longer day out, head over the A66 for a walk along High Rigg or Clough Head - you really are spoilt for choice here! Threlkeld has a choice of two pubs, perfect for a cold pint or G&T and a hearty meal after a day on the fells. If lower level ambles are more your thing, there are plenty of footpaths to explore around the village too - don't forget to stop off at the cafe in the Village Hall for a slice of cake.

The popular market town of Keswick is only a 5-minute drive away, or you can leave the car and hop on the bus that passes through the village or even enjoy a meandering walk to town (there a few different routes to choose from). With a great choice of independent and outdoor shops, Keswick is great for a bit of retail therapy. If you fancy a relaxing day, take a ride on the launch and enjoy a cruise around Derwentwater?

Step inside the cottage and you'll feel instantly at home. The country-style kitchen/diner is a convivial space equipped with Range-stlye cooker, large fridge/freezer, microwave, handy dishwasher and a beautiful belfast sink. There's a large larder-style cupboard and extra space by the sink for storage. The floor is laid with sandstone flags. From the kitchen, head through into the wonderful living room. You'll be immediately drawn to the windows and the spectacular open views towards High Rigg, Clough Head and the Helvellyn Range - a truly breathtaking vista! With the seating arranged to make the most of that gorgeous view, the living room is the perfect place to sit back and relax after a day out exploring. Recount your adventures and tick off the peaks you can see from the window whilst relaxing in front of the cosy wood burner. If you can tear yourself away from the view, there's a Smart TV and DVD for entertainment. Or wait till everyone else is out and simply curl up with a good book for a spot of 'me time'. A handy utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer is a useful addition, as is the handy WC on the ground floor.

Head up the stairs and you'll find two of the bedrooms: the master double bedroom is a lovely relaxing room. There is a lovely dressing table in the master bedroom (you'll find a handy hairdryer in the drawers here), as well as a double wardrobe with deep-draw tall chest of draws and two open bedside cabinets for storage. The single bedroom further along the landing is just as delightful. In here there's a double wardrobe with deep draw, chest of draws and bedside cabinet with small draw and cupboard. The family bathroom is also on the first floor - it has a bath with overhead shower and additional hand-held shower attachment. Onwards and upwards to the second floor and the twin attic bedroom, with stunning views from the Velux windows you'll feel on top of the world here! For storage here's a double wardrobe with deep draw, dressing table with small draws either side and two open bedside cabinets.

As well as private parking for several cars, the cottage also has a wonderful, large rear garden. Make the most of long summer evenings out here by enjoying an al fresco meal, or snuggle up with a blanket and mug of hot chocolate on colder nights and enjoy an evening looking at the night sky. Perfect.

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.

It could take you five lifetimes to visit each of the places mentioned here; a good way to see more of the Lake District National Park is stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages.
