  • Views towards St Johns in the Vale and Blencathra
Property code: 83970

Offering the perfect romantic retreat, this cosy shepherd hut with a private hot tub is within walking distance to a couple of village pubs. It is the perfect getaway.

Romantic getaways should never mean leaving the pooch behind, which is why this cosy shepherd’s hut with a private hot tub has been carefully designed for couples and canine companions alike. Inside this small but perfectly formed bolthole find country chic decor, a host of home comforts and plenty of floor space for that all-important dog bed. In the mornings, throw open the French doors and head for the hills before stopping for a bite to eat at one of the dog-friendly local pubs.

 

Come rain or shine, this is a stylish and inviting space in which to relax with your two great loves. Rustle up romantic meals in the kitchen area, cleverly designed to make use of every inch of space, before dining at the breakfast bar. Far from old-fashioned camping, there is a serene and spa-like shower room that will leave you feeling rejuvenated and a raised double bed nestled into a cosy nook. Stepping outside, a patio area offers space for dogs to roam and owners to admire breath-taking views towards St Johns in the Vale and Blencathra, while a private hot tub is the best place to study the starry skies above.

 

With the heights of Helvellyn, Skiddaw and Catbells right on the doorstep, you and your four-legged friend will be spoilt for choice when it comes to daily walkies. After long and tiring climbs, enjoy a more leisurely amble through the pretty village of Threlkeld, home to a golf course, cricket club and two country pubs, or browse the independent shops, eateries and museums of nearby Keswick. While you’re there, jump on board one of the dog-friendly cruises on Derwentwater, hopping on and off to explore the many lakeside attractions.
