The Lake District National Park is possibly the most beautiful part of England:

Threlkeld is located in the north of the National Park, at the southern base of Blencathra
just north of the A66 between Penrith and Keswick:

Threlkeld village main
                  street, with Rose Cottage and the Horse & Farrier
                  pubRose Cottage is located in the very centre of Threlkeld village, next door to the Horse & Farrier pub and opposite St Mary's Church.

This makes it an ideal location for fell-walking, with a number of routes over Blencathra, or more gentle paths into Keswick, Castlerigg Stone Circle or St Johns in the Vale all immediately within reach.

It is also a superb location from which to explore the northern fells, or to reach the central fells via Grasmere and Ambleside.
Railway tunnel near Threlkeld Threlkeld is on the X4/X5 bus route from Penrith to Keswick, with a bus stop right outside the front door, for the Horse & Farrier.
But it is also linked to Keswick by a pleasant path along the former railway. The path is a flat 2 miles, and home to plenty of wildlife, including red squirrels. Unfortunately bridge damage after the floods of December 2015 means parts of it are closed, but we hope it will be restored in the very near future.

Keswick offers a wide selection of cafes, bars, pubs and the all important outdoor shops.
