Keswick 4.5 miles. This lovely, semi-detached holiday home, Jacky Garth Cottage, is located in the picturesque village of Threlkeld near Keswick in Cumbria. This house is among the oldest in Threlkeld and boasts original features peppered throughout the dwelling, making it ideal a charming retreat for a family's break in the Lake District. When you arrive at the property, you will be met not only with a pleasant, white-washed exterior, but also by a convenient, off-road parking area, allowing for simple unloading of your belongings your home-away-from-home. Inside, you'll discover a quaint living/dining area with exposed beams and an inglenook fireplace beholding a woodburning stove, creating a delightful spot where you can rest after an eventful day in front of the TV. Move on to the welcoming galley kitchen, where a rustic wooden column takes centre stage and an assortment of wooden-topped cupboards house abundant appliances to satisfy any aspiring chef! Bring out the foldable dining table once dinner is ready and have a delicious meal with your family; perhaps you'd also like pour a bottle of bubbly and toast to this fantastic escape? Make your way upstairs, as the day fades to night, to find two wonderful bedrooms, one a twin with views of Blencathra, and the other a fabulous king-size. In the morning, prepare for the day ahead in the ground-floor bathroom, which features a bath with a shower above it. For those evenings when you desire a dinner out, Threlkeld is served by two welcoming pubs; the village also backs onto the picturesque Keswick to Threlkeld Railway Path, as well as the interesting Threlkeld Quarry & Mining Museum and the Keswick Golf Club. Travel a short distance to Keswick, where you'll find all of your necessities in one location, as well as access to Derwentwater and its selection of watersports, Hope Park's magnificently maintained gardens, and the renowned Museums of Derwent Pencil and Keswick.
