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.

Had a lovely time at this upside down cottage. Has everything you need in the cottage. Within easy driving distance to towns. Cottage set in lovely countryside with great views. The lady who takes care of the properties was very informative and helpful. We would certainly go back again.

Location was fab in terms of getting to Keswick etc. However there was a lot of noise (I appreciate it’s a working farm but to be woken up at 0630 by a tractor and then kept awake during the night by cows was a bit much) , there was a lot of flies in the kitchen, the hot tub didn’t always work properly and the bed was very squeaky.
