If you are looking for a spacious and beautifully appointed cottage for six with the fells and two lovely pubs on the doorstep then take a look at Rowan House. Nestled in the charming village of Threlkeld this three-bedroom semi-detached cottage is blessed with plenty of space, comfortable furnishings, a subtle palette of colours and an elegant eye for decor making it a delightful holiday home in a welcoming Lakeland village. The flanks of mighty Blencathra even sweep down behind the house giving plenty of inspiration to don your walking boots and scale its heights. Alternatively, why not take a rather gentler stroll along to Keswick via a network of paths through Brundholme Woods?
Threlkeld makes an ideal base to explore this beautiful area. The Skiddaw and Blencathra ranges are literally on the doorstep while the Thirlmere and Borrowdale Valleys are just a short hop away. Better yet, this glorious outdoor playground is just a 15-minute drive from the M6. While Rowan House has a very well-equipped kitchen for the foodies among you, if you'd rather let someone else take the culinary strain then there are two pubs serving good homecooked food and real ales less than 300m away. The village also boasts its own cafe situated in the village hall. After a long walk in the fells why not indulge in one of their gorgeous cakes while taking in the view of Clough Head?
Families are well served for things to do nearby. Just across the A66 lies the Threlkeld Quarry & Mining Museum, where visitors can enjoy an underground tour and even take a narrow-gauge locomotive ride. Just four miles away is Keswick which has a world of great activities on offer including a family leisure pool, indoor climbing walls, a well renowned theatre, award winning museums and countless water sports. It's also a great place to shop and eat out with a fantastic choice of eateries.
