  • Stuart

    “Very good overall with just 2 adverse comments.”

    1. No mechanical ventilation working to the ensuite so with no natural vent facility this was not ideal. 2. No means of ventilation for main bedroom without opening the French doors. This is not a secure solution when sleeping as room on ground floor.

    - Stuart, April 2022

    Please can I respond to the comments as follows There is a fan in the bathroom that can be switched on I am sorry you didn't notice I appreciate the comment about the french doors. We have been planning on replacing with a barn door style door but have not yet been able to find a builder available to do this work Property Owner

The property

Keswick 3.9 miles.

Town Gate Barn, in Threlkeld, near Keswick, is a popular detached, reverse-level barn conversion.

Town Gate Barn accommodates up to six people and has lovely countryside views, making it an ideal location for a family excursion to the Lake District.

The living areas upstairs provide fantastic views of the countryside and mountains; in the well-equipped kitchen/diner, a fashionable dining table for all guests is perfect for enjoying home-cooked evening meals, with a handy dishwasher for a simple clean-up.

Patio doors open onto the decking for alfresco dining on the picnic bench, and the sitting room has a woodburning stove for chilly evenings, ideal for movie nights if you can tear your gaze away from the breathtaking views provided by three large windows.

To round up the first floor, there's a small room with a TV and DVD player for a relaxed evening watching a family favourite film, or a Wii for challenging your loved ones to some electronic games.

There are three bedrooms on the ground floor: a king-size with its own en-suite bathroom for privacy, and two twin rooms, one with a truckle bed to comfortably sleep one or two guests.

All visitors have access to the contemporary wet room, as well as a drying space, which is ideal for leaving coats and boots after a long day of hiking.

You can also pack light as any muddy clothes can be thrown into the utility area's handy washing machine and tumble dryer.

The barn conversion has off-road parking for two cars and a gorgeous, multi-level back yard; play games or have a picnic on the lawn, or sit on the terrace area to watch the sun set over Blencathra with a glass of wine.

Threlkeld is a small, bustling village well-worth seeing if you can tear yourself away from this incredible property, with two popular pubs and a community coffee shop just a short walk away serving excellent food.

Town Gate Barn is located at the base of Blencathra, providing breathtaking treks right from your front door!

There are bus connections to Penrith and Keswick, or you can bike or walk the four-mile 'old railway line' path straight into Keswick; shops, eateries, activities, and attractions await you in this popular holiday destination, where you can see a show at the famous Theatre by the Lake, play mini golf with your family, or explore the quirky museums, galleries, and parks.

The popular climbing wall and the Neolithic stone circle at Castle Rigg are located between Threlkeld and Keswick.

Alternatively, drive in the opposite direction to Ullswater to see the spectacular Aira Force Waterfall, which has fantastic nature trails, or enjoy a lake cruise from Glenridding.

Town Gate Barn is a wonderful location for a picturesque tour to The Lake District.
