Scales View Cottage is part of a large stone built barn sympathetically converted into three holiday cottages providing comfortable self catering accommodation. It is situated in an imposing position at the foot of Blencathra with stunning views across the valley to Threlkeld common and Clough Head.The start of a walk up Blencathra can commence from the front door of the property.
The White Horse Inn is situated behind Scales View and a further two pubs are in Threlkheld only 1 mile away, all serving good food and fine ales for when you don't fancy self catering.
The Lake District market town of Keswick is just 5 miles away, reachable by car along the A66 or by a lovely walk, part of which follows the old railway line with wooded areas and passes by the Victorian iron railway bridges. The imposing mountain of Skiddaw is also only a short distance away.
The large private patio area to the front of the cottage has wonderful views across the Lake District fells and is south facing. A further BBQ and picnic area is shared with the two adjoining holiday cottages. The cottage is situated in an easy accesible position by the A66 but set up above it.
