In the area

A small and close-knit village, Threlkeld has a brand new café and two superb pubs, The Sally and the Horse and Farrier. It’s easy to drive into Keswick too for more range. The peaceful village provides all you could need on a day to day basis with more range as you head further afield.

There is also an old railway line which enables a cycle or walk directly to Keswick from Threlkeld .

Whether out walking your dogs, planning a big hike or taking to the saddle, the surrounds of Threlkeld have plenty to offer. Beautiful Ullswater is just to the east whilst Derwentwater and bustling Keswick are to the west. Thirlmere sits below Threlkeld and provides miles of beautiful forest for enjoyable walks and cycling days out.
