Things To Do in Threlkeld

Sitting in a working cattle and sheep farm on the slopes of Blencathra, in the northern fells of the Lake District National Park.

Forget about the stress and fumes of the big city, and enjoy a unique break in wide open spaces with your canine companion by your side. Pub ¾ of a mile away, restaurant 1¼ miles, shop 4½ miles.

If you like country walks with a furry friend for company, you couldn’t ask for anywhere better than Doddick Farm. Blencathra, one of Lakeland’s world famous mountain peaks, literally overlooks the farm, so you can give it a go with pooch if you feel up to it.

A more leisurely ascent lies to the east, with a designated footpath leading from a country lane.

Going the other way, you can follow the Scaley Beck southwards, downhill from Blencathra, and explore its wooded banks with fido as it joins the larger River Glenderamackin.

Follow this eastwards and you’ll find Troutbeck, on the doorstep of the National Trust’s Great Mell Fell, which is unspoiled countryside open to all.

Follow the Glenderamackin westwards, and you head off towards Keswick, which is only 5 miles away from the farm.

Keswick is a great place to spend a morning or afternoon, which you could turn into a full day if you include Derwentwater lake, which Keswick overlooks. In the town itself, you’ll find dog friendly pubs, a local market and superb visitor attractions.

The Derwent Pencil Museum is here, right on the banks of the River Greta, and pays homage to the history of pencil making in this part of the world; it’s also home to the world’s biggest pencil!

Derwentwater has superb views in any direction you choose, and also offers watersports if you’re that way inclined. There are many scenic bays around the lake, and nature reserves like Brandlehow Park overlooking the water.

Our Thoughts

Derwent Dale Cottage is a fabulous Lakeland home from home, complete with original beams to give a cosy feel as well as some of the best views in England.

Enjoy a private hot tub in the specially built timber extension, or sit out on the garden furniture in the decked patio, looking up Blencathra to your north. In between is a working farm just beyond, complete with grazing sheep.

Explore the lush countryside with your furry friend, maybe following one of the many becks which surround the farm.

Take a short drive east to Troutbeck, former county seat of Cumberland, or head south for a very short drive to Keswick, one of the loveliest towns in the Lake District National Park. A superb holiday cottage, for couples, families or small groups.
