Threlkeld cottages on map

Threlkeld is a small chocolate box village settled just below the striking and steep face of Blencathra and above the picturesque valley of St John’s in the Vale. Four miles away sits the market town of Keswick and Threlkeld has a rich history dating back over 800 years, with a name that is taken from the Norse for ‘The well of the thrall.’ Close to Castlerigg Stone Circle, Derwentwater and Grasmere, Threlkeld is a serene base for your Lake District holiday.

Easy access to the main hubs of the Northern Lakes, Threlkeld is a perfect choice for breaks at the height of summer and walks with the dog in the midday sun.

It is a small community but a welcoming one and at Cottage Escapes we’ve made sure our country cottages in Threlkeld occupy prime locations for enjoying the whole of the local area.

Historic Threlkeld has a 16th century church at its heart and the two local pubs also have a long and historic past, one first opening its doors in 1688.
