|Rose Cottage is located in
the very centre of Threlkeld village, next door to the
Horse & Farrier pub and opposite St Mary's Church.
This makes it an ideal location for fell-walking, with a number of routes over Blencathra, or more gentle paths into Keswick, Castlerigg Stone Circle or St Johns in the Vale all immediately within reach.
It is also a superb location from which to explore the northern fells, or to reach the central fells via Grasmere and Ambleside.
|Threlkeld is on the X4/X5 bus
route from Penrith to Keswick, with a bus stop right
outside the front door, for the Horse & Farrier.
But it is also linked to Keswick by a pleasant path along the former railway. The path is a flat 2 miles, and home to plenty of wildlife, including red squirrels. Unfortunately bridge damage after the floods of December 2015 means parts of it are closed, but we hope it will be restored in the very near future.
Keswick offers a wide selection of cafes, bars, pubs and the all important outdoor shops.
