Pretty shepherd hut, offers a romantic retreat and escape for a couple looking to explore the Lake District on foot or bike. The lovely village of Threlkeld is within walking distance with walks from your front door.

Immerse yourselves in the natural beauty of the northern Lake District when you stay at this exquisite, pup-friendly Shepherd’s Hut, which comes with a hot tub. Surrounded by magnificent scenery, looking out towards the peak of Blencathra, the charming and romantic holiday home at Threlkeld, 4 miles from Keswick, makes a perfect retreat for humans and hounds who savour spending time in the great outdoors.

Take three steps up to open the French doors to this delightful abode and bring your four-legged friend in with you to discover its perfectly proportioned accommodation. Prepare meals for all three of you in its compact yet creatively designed kitchen space then chose to dine inside or out, depending on the weather. There is a comfortable, raised double bed in the hut to ensure you enjoy a relaxing night’s sleep, while your pal curls up on the floor, and a shower room where you can indulge in hot showers after your long walks. Also treat yourselves to a soak in the hot tub while your canine companion unwinds after his latest exhilarating adventure. There is parking for one car at the shepherd’s hut.

Take energetic pups with you on a hike up Blencathra to enjoy the panoramic Lakeland views. For an easier walk, attempt the 6-mile Threlkeld Railway Trail into Keswick, which is largely flat. From Keswick, enjoy scenic strolls beside beautiful Derwentwater. Lively hounds with energy to burn may even be keen to complete a 10-mile circuit of the lake, before returning into town to put their paws up in a pet-friendly pub. Other great doggy delights include visiting Castlerigg Stone Circle, 3 miles from your base, and trips on Ullswater Steamers from Pooley Bridge, 12.5 miles away. Here four-legged passengers are very welcome to join their owners aboard the scenic lake cruises.
