    “The cottage was in very good condition, excellent bathroom and kitchen facilities, very comfortable and clean.”

    Set in a beautiful, scenic friendly village with equally good facilities and walks. The only downside was that some of the information on the website about parking and garden, conflicted with the information on the hosts folder in the house. We were not sure which was our garden or where to park, so more helpful signs outside, and one set of clear written instructions would be of benefit.

The property

Keswick 3.9 miles. This charming mid-terrace cottage of Sparrow Cottage is located in Threlkeld, Cumbria, near Keswick. Sparrow Cottage is a fantastic base for a family of four looking to explore this beautiful region of the Lake District National Park; it enjoys elegant decor throughout and is accessible to a variety of outdoor pursuits. After parking in the off-road spot, enter the cottage to find a beautifully decorated open-plan living area. Lounge on one of the sumptuous sofas and turn on the Smart TV to catch up on your favourite programme; while you're at it, fire up the woodburning stove to fill the space with a warm glow. Proceed to the kitchen, which features sleek white cabinets with stylish, wooden worktops and a wide range of equipment, including a dishwasher and a washer/dryer. Once the family's aspiring chef has prepared a culinary treat, serve it at the adjacent dining table or take it out to the shared garden to enjoy while watching the picturesque beck run past. At the end of the day, ascend the stairs to find two lovely bedrooms, a double and a bunk, as well as a superb bathroom featuring a large corner bath and a contemporary walk-in shower. When it comes to dining, The Sally Inn and Horse & Farrier are two wonderful choices close by, where you can enjoy a bite to eat, before or after enjoying the surrounding wonders of Keswick Golf Club, the Threlkeld Quarry & Mining Museum, and Thornsgill Beck.
