This authentic, detached timber lodge offers the perfect ingredients for a romantic and relaxing break on the lower slopes of Blencathra, one of the most impressive fells in the Lake District National Park. Situated on a working beef and sheep farm, this cute lodge was designed with couples in mind. It is well equipped and comes complete with its own private hot tub, so you can take a dip and indulge in some relaxation underneath the night sky. The south-facing outdoor patio area with garden furniture is a great place to soak up the sun, and offers the seclusion and privacy your romantic break deserves. The ground floor is all open plan and has a well-equipped kitchen and breakfast bar, which overlooks a cosy living room with a comfortable two-seater sofa and flat screen TV. Just off the living room is a small but high spec shower room. Upstairs, you will find a cosy bedroom with timber beams and a feature bed.

Threlkeld is a small village just off the A66, which is the main route between Penrith and Keswick. Almost directly opposite is Keswick Golf Club, so if you fancy a round while you’re away, you could not be much closer. The quaint village of Scales, along with a couple of local pubs offering great food and local cask ales, is just a mile away. The lodge is just 5 miles from the vibrant Lake District town of Keswick, which is brimming with great restaurants, pubs serving local craft ales, an excellent range of shopping experiences and some memorable tourist attractions. If you fancy something a bit different, then why not visit The Derwent Pencil Museum, home to the world’s largest pencil. Also within easy reach is Puzzling Place, which is full of mind-boggling optical illusions. If you like culture, you could try the Theatre by the Lake, with its enviable position on the shores of Derwentwater, which offers award-winning performances in drama and arts.

If you like walking or cycling, you are surrounded by some of the most challenging fells in the area, as well as a number of less challenging walking routes suitable for people who like sightseeing without the strain. Keswick is at the northern end of Derwentwater, one of the area’s iconic lakes, and offers a great base and starting point for many an adventure. You can tick off a few of Wainwright’s 214 Lakeland Fells, including Skiddaw, Blencathra and Helvellyn within a few miles’ radius. Whatever the reason for your visit, Lucy’s Lodge offers a great base, inspiring surroundings and a touch of quirkiness to make your next Lake District getaway one to remember. Shop 4½ miles, pub ¾ mile and restaurant 1¼ miles.
