The Hoggest is situated in the Lake District National Park with magnificent views over the Lakeland Fells, perfect for families who love the great outdoors.

Peace, tranquillity and luxury is everything that you will find during your stay at The Hoggest, along with 360 degree views of some of Lakelands finest scenery. Nestled at the foot of Blencathra, this stunning location really is surrounded by natural beauty, settled behind the village of Threlkeld and within easy reach of Keswick and the Lake District National Park, making it an ideal place to explore from. Luxuriously renovated from a former stone farm building, this detached property offers quality and comfort to an excellent standard, and even has its own hot tub. Relax in the bright and airy living room with the bi-folding doors opening out to the views, or for a warm and comfy evening, light the wood burner and relax in the large sumptuous sofas. The open plan layout provides the perfect place to entertain in, with large dining table and well equipped kitchen, where everyone can enjoy mealtimes and come together. After a good night’s sleep in the comfortable beds open the curtains and take in the views of the surrounding fells, and down towards St Johns in the Vale, a truly inspiring way to start your day. Threlkeld has a golf course and two renowned pubs, each serving real ale, good food and one with a restaurant, whilst the vibrant market town of Keswick is only a few miles away. With fabulous fell walks from the doorstep, The Hoggest provides a great base for your holiday in the North Lakes. Shop 4½ miles, pub and restaurant 1¼ miles.

    Genuinely haven't got a bad word to say about The Hoggest. My partner and I went along with four of our friends, all couples. We each had a lovely room with our own bathroom. The whole house was spacious, cosy and immaculately presented. Not to mention the renovation/extension on this old house has been done to a very high standard. And all set within the breathtaking views of the local area. We'll definitely be back. Plus, hot tub and a hamper!

    We've just arrived back from spending a week in this wonderful cottage. The location is amazing, we had a couple of rainy days but it didn't matter because you could just spend hours looking at the stunning views. The cottage itself had everything and is done to an amazing standard. Would definitely go back we had such a relaxing stay.

    The highest was a fabulous holiday. It had outstanding views and the inside didn't disappoint either. Immaculately clean and attention to detail. Lovely touches like a welcome basket. The best place we've stayed at.
