Description

Bridge House is a traditional stone built cottage in the very centre of the delightful mountain village of Threlkeld. Turn left by its side and you are immediately on the footpath to Blencathra, the dramatic mountain that dominates the village. Opposite is the churchyard and views towards Clough Head in the distance. Down the village road a few yards are two pubs, one with a renowned restaurant and both serving food. A regular hourly bus service stops opposite the pub and takes you to Keswick, 4 miles away, a bustling market town on the shores of Derwentwater. The cottage has been lovingly renovated to highlight many original features including oak beams and sash windows. The furnishing and fittings combine both character and comfort. In the surprisingly spacious living and dining area there is seating and a slate fireplace for cosy evenings. On sunny days you can sit in the private area in front of the cottage to take in the views. The cottage comes equipped with a TV and DVD player as well as broadband Wi-Fi. Light refreshments are available most days and various activities and events take place in Threlkeld Village Hall.

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.
