Pretty shepherd hut, offers a romantic retreat and escape for a couple looking to explore the Lake District on foot or bike. The lovely village of Threlkeld is within walking distance with walks from your front door.

Situated 4 miles from the bustling town of Keswick, this area offers a great base to get out and explore the Northern Lakes and fells. The pretty village of Threlkeld is set at the foot of Blencathra with its pubs, golf course and cricket club, it is just over a mile away. A short drive from Derwent Water and Bassenthwaite Lake, why not enjoy some water sports, a cruise or why not captain your own boat for the day! Enjoy a day out at Mirehouse and Gardens or tick off some of the many Wainwrights in the area. There are so many activities locally, including indoor climbing and Breweries to visit.

This pretty, well-equipped shepherd hut is open-plan with a raised double bed, wall-mounted TV and a dining area looking out through the French doors over the Fells. The cute bijou kitchen area is perfectly equipped to rustle up a nice breakfast or romantic dinner with a combi-microwave and fridge. There is a shower room with WC off the main living space.

Head outside you will find a private seating area to the front of the property overlooking the Fells and a private hot tub which is delightful after a day out exploring. There is private parking for one car.

Our shepherd hut “blencathra” was amazing, great attention to detail, lovely decorated, warm and cosy, high standards of cleanliness and the hot tub with views was a massive WOW factor! Will definitely be back

The accommodation was beautiful and had a number of homely touches which we really appreciated. The view was stunning.

Mr R,

The view from the cabin is absolutely breathtaking. Extremely peaceful. The cabin was facilitated with everything you would need with an extra attention to detail. I would recommend it to anyone. It is self check in and you are not bothered the entire trip. Truly unforgettable.

Miss M,

The shepards hut was fabulously equipped with lots of attention to detail. The view was stunning too! Could not recommend this accommodation more. The village nearby was really beautiful too and some lovely walks round about.

Miss G,

We've just come back from an amazing holiday and can't recommend it enough! The hut was immaculate and the owner was kind enough to leave a little welcome treat for us which we were very grateful for after a long drive. The views are just incredible and we loved sitting in the hot tub after long hikes enjoying the peace and quiet. Great location to explore the Lakes! Everything has clearly been very lovingly looked after and we would absolutely visit again. Thank you! :)

Miss A,

Excellent accommodation and views. Perfect short break.

Mr S,

What a wonderful place, could not fault apart from the weather, still used the hot tub in the rain enjoyed so much

Mr B,

An amazing shepherds hut in an outstanding location. Really pretty inside, very good quality bedding/furnishings etc. lovely touch with the welcome pack of scones, cake, milk etc. unbelievably fantastic views of Skiddaw and Blencathra. We had superb weather and it was a lovely treat to sit out eating breakfast taking in the peaceful views not to mention relaxing in the hot tub on a sunny evening! A good distance from Keswick and nearby walks/pubs. Will definitely be returning!

Mrs P,

Absolutely stunning place. Very clean hot tub. Great location. 5/10 minutes drive to keswick.

Mr W,

Absolutely stunning. We arrived and there were scones with clotted cream and jam and rice crispy slices waiting for us. Could not fault the Shepard's hut and hot tub. Everything was amazing.

Ms B,

We loved our stay in the Blencathra hut. The scones and cakes were a lovely touch. The location is stunning and a perfect spot for a lot of the hikes we planned. The hot tub was lovely to come back to as well! I'd recommend bringing some kitchen utensils, salt and pepper and cooking oils etc. if you're wanting to cook evening meals at the huts. Otherwise, we really couldn't fault our stay!

Miss S,

Literally everything has been thought of. We had everything we needed, it was comfy and cosy and in a great location. We had a fantastic time and absolutely loved the shepherds hut. We will be booking again in the future for sure :)

Miss F,

A great place to stay just a short drive into Keswick town centre. The hut has everything you need, well equipped and the hot tub is great after a day of hiking! Would stay again.

Perfect place for a getaway. The view is stunning. Great location 15 min walk from threlkeld and 10 mins in the car from Keswick. Gorgeous little shepherds hut with everything you need.
