Situated on a working beef and sheep farm, this cute apartment with an upside down layout is connected to the owner’s farmhouse with a private entrance. It is well equipped and comes complete with its own private hot tub, so you can take a dip underneath the night sky. Just perfect to ease those aching muscles after a day of fell walking on the adjacent Blencathra. The property has a small enclosed garden area with artificial grass and patio furniture so you can sit out and relax. On the ground floor you will find a comfortable bedroom and a shower room, whilst on the lower ground floor, there is an open plan living/dining room featuring an electric recliner sofa and armchair with views across to the northern Lake District Fells, great to relax in after a day of adventure. The kitchen has been finished to a very good standard and offers everything you need for a comfortable stay.

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 are away, you couldn’t be much closer. The quaint villages of Threlkeld and Scales, along with a couple of local pubs offering great food and local cask ales, are both just a mile away. The property is 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. The Puzzling Place, which is full of mind-boggling optical illusions, is also worth a visit. 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 and iconic 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 offering watersports, and is 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. For your next Lake District escape, with your own private hot tub, look no further than Shepherds Bield. Shop 4½ miles, pub ¾ mile and restaurant 1¼ miles.
Shepherd’s Bield can be booked together with Harrison’s Lodge (UK1259), Lucy’s Lodge (UK1260), Grajo Lodge (UK1284), Darci’s Lodge (UK1297), Derwent Dale Cottage (UK1334), Brackendale (UK1335), Doddick Chase Cottage (UK1363), The Rocking Lodge (UK11517) and Danika East (UK32363) to accommodate up to 32 guests.

The cottage was very clean and comfortable inside with nice views out the window, the outside seating area and hot tub area could be cleaner, nearest amenities are in Keswick, 2 local pubs one about a mile away the other just over a mile away.

Tiny little cottage enough for two, Hot Tub won’t be able to be used until the next day, so if you are on a weekend booking arriving on the Friday forget using it until Saturday afternoon. Sofa in cottage broke, surrounding area needs a tidy up, quite scruffy, couldn’t get hold of anyone either, decent little house at the end of a row of houses, not really a cottage like a very skinny end terrace on the corner of a farm. Surrounding area stunning, need to drive everywhere though
