  • Mr Parkinson

    “This is the second time we have stayed at Kilnhow and we loved it just as much as the first time.”

    We were really cosy despite the very cold weather and the log burner was the icing on the cake! The cottage is really well equipped, really comfortable and beautifully presented. It’s really well placed for walking and is close to excellent pubs and a coffee shop. Also handy for Keswick- what more could you ask. We love it so much we booked to go again while we were there. Would highly recommend it to anyone.

The property

Keswick 4.2 miles.

Find this stunning rural cottage enveloped by picturesque views of the Blencathra mountain peak, in the quaint village of Threlkeld.

Kiln How is a traditional two-bedroom retreat, ideal for a group of couples, friends or family to use as a relaxing base for a trip filled with adventure in the Cumbrian countryside.

Find a whitewashed semi-detached home among views of rolling hills and sounds of the babbling brook flowing next to the property, accompanied by a common ground lawn area with picnic benches to enjoy during the summer months.

Drop your muddy coats and shoes in the entrance hall before resting your legs on one of the lovely sofas and settling in for a cup of tea and a film next to the warm woodburning stove.

All of your self-catered meals can be prepared in the kitchen, fitted with all the essential amenities you may need, including a handy dishwasher to help you with the cleaning up and a sociable dining table for you and your guests to catch-up in a formal setting.

Choose between two charming double bedrooms, boasting views of either the historic village church, or of the flowing river nearby, providing relaxing sounds to fall asleep to.

Pick between a lazy morning soak in the bath or turn on the overhead shower for a refreshing wash to get ready for the day.

The cottage is ideally located in the middle of Threlkeld home to a welcoming local pub, a gorgeous coffee shop, Post Office and a delicious restaurant among scenes of idyllic countryside.
