  • "Me and the family spent a whole week here and had the most wonderful time."

    The cottage was a very warm and cosy place to come back to especially after a day out walking in the rain, which unfortunately was most days during our time here. Coming back here after a long, wet day out was definitely one of the highlights of our time in the Lake District, amongst the incredible scenery! The cottage had everything we needed, was very spacious and had a very well equipped kitchen. The beds were super comfy and the cottage is surrounded by the most beautiful views. We spent many mornings admiring all the different varieties of small birds feeding from the bird table in front of the kitchen window. An absolute delight. If you want peace and quiet this cottage is perfect. It is also very conveniently located, only a short drive away from many wonderful places, and an 8 minute drive from Keswick. Thank you to Sue & Eric who were lovely hosts and very attentive. I'm sure we will be back again at some point in the future!

    Thank you very much for your kind feedback Scott. Property Owner

  • "A delightful homely and attractive cottage - quiet and beautiful location yet only 15 minutes from Keswick."

    Perfect to return to from a day (quite often wet) out in the wonderful Lake District. Lovely for two (a second loo would make it lovely for 4 or 6).

The property

Threlkeld 2.2 miles.

Nestled in the quaint settlement of St. Johns-in-the-Vale, near Threlkeld in the magnificent Lake District National Park, rests this delightful, stone-built holiday home, Shundraw Cottage.

Boasting off-road parking for two cars, well-presented interiors, and superb views of the Skiddaw and Helvellyn mountain ranges, this charming cottage is the perfect base for a family or group of six, and their well-behaved dog, who are seeking a refreshing, self-catered escape near The Lakes.

Park up, unpack, and make yourself comfortable in your lovely new home-from-home.

Get to work in the fully-equipped kitchen, where you'll find every appliance required to rustle up a tasty, home-cooked dinner.

Savour your meals around the dining table, or even alfresco on the furnished patio when the sun is shining.

In the evening, gather in the sitting area to enjoy a film on the Smart TV before you refresh with a shower or bath on your way to settling in for a night of well-earned rest in one of the three plush bedrooms.

Wake up and gaze out upon your gorgeous mountainous surroundings before you head downstairs to make yourself a hot cup of coffee.

When ready, step out and explore what your local surroundings have to offer.

Make the short trip into Threlkeld, where there is a Post Office and fill up with a hearty pub lunch at the Horse & Farrier.

You'll find a range of fun things to see and do in the nearby market town of Keswick, such as roaming the serene grounds of Hope Park, brushing up on local history at the Keswick Museum, or experiencing mind-bending exhibits at the Puzzling Place.

A boat trip along the calm waters of Derwentwater is also a must during your stay, as is a hike up to the Lodore Falls and the Surprise View, which enjoys stunning, panoramic views of Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite.

Enjoy all of this and much more during your stay at Shundraw Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Keswick 3.8 miles; Watermillock 11.9 miles; Ambleside 16.3 miles.

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.
