Welcome to the Horse & Farrier Inn

The Horse & Farrier has enjoyed an idyllic location in the centre of the picturesque village of Threlkeld, just 4 miles east of Keswick in Cumbria, for over 300 years. Click the button below to view our Valentine Weekend Offers:

Built in 1688 and situated beneath Blencathra, with stunning views looking over towards the Helvellyn Range, this traditional Lakeland Inn offers a warm Cumbrian welcome to all its customers. Mellow Lakeland stone, traditional architecture and such a peaceful setting make the Horse & Farrier a perfect place to enjoy a quiet pint, delicious food or a short break "away from it all".

Our Restaurant is well known locally for the quality and imagination of its food and our Bar serves some of the best Jennings real ale in the Lake District. Together with our well-appointed en-suite bed & breakfast Accommodation, this really is a special place to spend some time.
