  • “The accommodation is based at a field study centre which should be mentioned in the description - it isn’t!”

    It is very basic and wasn’t particularly clean either which was very disappointing. The bathroom needs updating - the bath is old and stained. However, the major issue for us was that the bed is so uncomfortable we struggled to sleep well and woke with bad backs each morning - not great when you are expecting to enjoy walks around this beautiful area. This issue really needs to be addressed as it spoilt our weekend - thank goodness we hadn’t booked a week! Unfortunately, I would not ...

    It is very basic and wasn’t particularly clean either which was very disappointing. The bathroom needs updating - the bath is old and stained. However, the major issue for us was that the bed is so uncomfortable we struggled to sleep well and woke with bad backs each morning - not great when you are expecting to enjoy walks around this beautiful area. This issue really needs to be addressed as it spoilt our weekend - thank goodness we hadn’t booked a week! Unfortunately, I would not recommend this accommodation. The only positives are that the staff were helpful and it is a lovely area.

About the location

THRELKELD

The charming village of Threlkeld is just to the east of Keswick in the Northern Lakes. The steep sided Blencathra looms over Threlkeld village, a popular starting point for walking the mountain. Threlkeld's history reaches back more than 800 years; the Romans were here from the 3rd to the 8th century, followed later by the Norse. In the village the church dates back to 1578 and there are two pubs that first opened their doors in 1688.
Though only a few miles outside Keswick, the village is tranquil and unspoilt with great views of Blencathra and the Helvellyn range.
