    “My husband is 6ft 3inch.”

    It had mentioned some low beams in the details. However it was not just the odd beam he had to duck. He could not walk across either the lounge or the kitchen (which was most of the downstairs) without ducking. (Lucky he is easy going or this would have spoilt our holiday!) ...

    It had mentioned some low beams in the details. However it was not just the odd beam he had to duck. He could not walk across either the lounge or the kitchen (which was most of the downstairs) without ducking. (Lucky he is easy going or this would have spoilt our holiday!) The details should make it clear that this property is not appropriate for someone of my husband's height. It would also be helpful to mention the footends on all of the beds which were also a problem for anyone tall. I am 5ft 6inch and only had to duck for the entrance to the conservatory. Apart from issues with the low ceilings the property was great, lovely views from the garden, tranquil setting and great location. One other point-the drive is only suitable for 2 small cars rather than for 2 cars as described.

About the location

THRELKELD

The charming village of Threlkeld is just to the east of Keswick in the Northern Lakes. The steep sided Blencathra looms over Threlkeld village, a popular starting point for walking the mountain. Threlkeld's history reaches back more than 800 years; the Romans were here from the 3rd to the 8th century, followed later by the Norse. In the village the church dates back to 1578 and there are two pubs that first opened their doors in 1688.
Though only a few miles outside Keswick, the village is tranquil and unspoilt with great views of Blencathra and the Helvellyn range.
