Take a break away from the crowds and drink in the uninterrupted mountain views at Blencathra Skies. Nestled in Threlkeld, just along from St John in the Vale, a walking and cycling paradise, this cottage is just 10 minutes’ drive from the picturesque and bustling market town of Keswick with its great cafés and restaurants, shops and pubs, as well as Derwentwater. With mighty Blencathra to the front and Clough Head at the back, the views are truly breathtaking. Helvellyn also awaits!
Blencathra Skies has been designed to maximise the incredible views, with picnic tables at the front and rear of the property making al fresco dining and a glass of wine the perfect option. The rear garden gets the sun all day long and at the front you can watch the sun go down over Blencathra or gaze at the stars in the dark sky.
Inside, the spacious living/dining room with the large wood burner welcomes you, inviting you to snuggle up on one of the sofas and enjoy the view. You have Freesat TV/DVD available offering plenty of viewing options. Wake up to Blencathra in the master bedroom, which has a comfortable kingsize sleigh bed. There is a second bedroom with twin beds and a contemporary family bathroom. The kitchen has a butler sink and traditional slate floor and is well equipped.
Walk through the meadows to the village for a pub lunch or dinner. Pets are welcome at Blencathra Skies so no one needs miss out. The cottage has its own drive at the front, and bikes and any bulky outdoor equipment can be stored in the large shed next to the drive.
Whether you’re a couple or a family, Blencathra Skies is an excellent choice. Shop 4 miles, pub and restaurant 1¼ miles.
