Description

Peace, tranquillity and luxury is everything that you will find during your stay at The Hoggest, along with 360 degree views of some of Lakelands finest scenery. Nestled at the foot of Blencathra, this stunning location really is surrounded by natural beauty, settled behind the village of Threlkeld and within easy reach of Keswick and the Lake District National Park, making it an ideal place to explore from. Luxuriously renovated from a former stone farm building, this detached property offers quality and comfort to an excellent standard, and even has its own hot tub. Relax in the bright and airy living room with the bi-folding doors opening out to the views, or for a warm and comfy evening, light the wood burner and relax in the large sumptuous sofas. The open plan layout provides the perfect place to entertain in, with large dining table and well equipped kitchen, where everyone can enjoy mealtimes and come together. After a good night’s sleep in the comfortable beds open the curtains and take in the views of the surrounding fells, and down towards St Johns in the Vale, a truly inspiring way to start your day. Threlkeld has a golf course and two renowned pubs, each serving real ale, good food and one with a restaurant, whilst the vibrant market town of Keswick is only a few miles away. With fabulous fell walks from the doorstep, The Hoggest provides a great base for your holiday in the North Lakes. Shop 4½ miles, pub and restaurant 1¼ miles.

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.
