Granary Cottage is a fantastic converted barn offering welcoming accommodation for 5 people. On the ground floor is a fantastic open plan living-dining-kitchen area. With a cosy wood burner, well equipped kitchen and dining table with plenty of space for five, it's a great sociable space. Also on the ground floor (though up a step from the living area) is a handy utility area and WC. Up on the first floor there are three bedrooms, two doubles (the master has an en-suite shower room) and a single, as well as the modern family bathroom. Outside the cottage there is parking for two cars and a delightful garden area.

At Granary Cottage you're surrounded by magnificent views - sure to inspire you to get out and explore this beautiful area. Walk straight from the door onto mighty Blencathra. Lace up your walking boots and tackle this popular fell, there are plenty of routes to choose from including the scramble up Sharp Edge for experienced hill walkers. If a lower level walks are more your thing, there are plenty of footpaths that criscross the village. Why not head for the Threlkeld to Keswick Railway Trail? Walk part of the route or the whole way to Keswick (there and back will be 10k), it's a fantastic accessible walk - or cycle if you prefer to explore on two-wheels. You'll be in need of refreshments after all that exercise! Threlkeld has two pubs to choose from for hearty meals and real ales. There's also a friendly village cafe for fresh coffee and yummy homemade cakes.

The bustling market town of Keswick is just four miles away where you'll find a great choice of outdoor and independent shops, as well as Booths supermarket. Often considered the adventure capital of the North Lakes, why not sign up for an activity with one of the local adventure companies? Try your hand at ghyll scrambling, canyoning or tackle the Via Ferrata at Honister Slate Mine. For an evening out, take in a film at the family owned Alhambra cinema or a performance at the renowned and aptly named Theatre by the Lake. However you decide to spend your time, Granary Cottage will be a lovely home from home to retreat to.
