Nestling into the slopes of Blencathra, this property really does enjoy a most impressive location in a tranquil, elevated position with stunning views to St Johns in the Vale, Castle Rock and Clough Head. As the name suggests, the accommodation is an apartment on the first floor of a converted barn, adjoining the main farmhouse. There are many walking opportunities from the doorstep with footpaths to Blencathra, Skiddaw and Latrigg. The village of Threlkeld, which has two pubs each serving good food and real ale, are a 10 minute walk along the footpath. The owner lives in the farmhouse and is a fully qualified instructor in outdoor pursuits. By prior arrangement he will act as a guide or instructor for rock climbing, fell walking or mountain biking, subject to availability.

What our customers are saying...

About the local area

Threlkeld and St. Johns in the Vale are just to the east of Keswick in the Northern Lakes. The steep sided Blencathra looms over Threlkeld village, a popular starting point for walking the mountain; three ridges lead to the summit from the village. St. Johns in the Vale, as the name suggests is set in a peaceful valley surrounded by some of England's highest mountains.

Threlkeld's history reaches back more than 800 years; the Romans were here from the 3rd to the 8th century, followed later by the Norse. In the village the church dates back to 1578 and there are two pubs that first opened their doors in 1688.

St. Johns in the Vale is in one of the most stunning valleys in the Northern Lake District. Though only a few miles outside Keswick, the area is tranquil and unspoilt with great views of Blencathra and the Helvellyn range.

There are many places of interest within easy reach; beautiful Ullswater to the east, the lively market town of Keswick and Derwentwater to the West and Thirlmere to the south, with forest walks and fishing.
