Description

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 John’s 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 direct access on to Blencathra and footpaths to Skiddaw and Latrigg. The village of Threlkeld, which has a wonderful coffee shop/theatre/cinema/concert hall, as well as two pubs each serving good food and real ale, are a 10-minute walk along the footpath. Despite the accommodation being on the first floor, the access is via a barn door at ground level to the rear, as the house is built into the slope of Blencathra. Once inside the accommodation is all on one level with an open plan living space with a cosy wood burner, a spacious double bedroom with lots of storage and an en-suite shower room with two wash basins and fantastic views! The vibrant tourist town of Keswick is only 4 miles away and has a wealth of amenities. Shop 4 miles, pub and restaurant 800 yards.

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.
