Blencathra from our Car Park
Ashness Bridge & Derwentwater

Local Area...

The Horse & Farrier Inn has a stunning location amidst the Northern Fells of the English Lake District, surrounded by magnificent mountains and beautiful Lakes scenery.

Whether it is fell walking, sailing, climbing, cycling, horse riding, paragliding or mountain biking, there is something for everyone.

The walking around this part of the Lake District National Park is second to none. Blencathra, Skiddaw, Helvellyn, and the Northern Fells of Caldbeck are all in close proximity.

For the less energetic, there are lovely walks around the shores of Lake Derwentwater & Bassenthwaite and along the former railway line to Keswick.

Check out our "Walks" page for information on six local walks starting out from the Horse & Farrier.

Keswick itself is well known for its excellent restaurants and shopping with a market on Saturdays and Wednesdays, offering something for every taste and budget. It's also THE place in the Lake District for outdoor shops and equipment.

Derwentwater is popular for sailing, canoeing, windsurfing, rowing, fishing and has its own Keswick Launch Service stopping at several points around the Lake, allowing you to walk so far and cruise the rest.

There are many other local attractions to enjoy too, including Rheged Discovery Centre on the A66 towards Penrith (winner of the global "BA Tourism for Tomorrow Awards"). the Theatre By The Lake, Honister Slate Mine, and Derwentwater Marina.

There are many footpaths leading out of the village so you can leave your car behind and for those on two wheels, the long distance cycle routes namely the C2C (Coast to Coast) and the Reivers Route are not far away.

Threlkeld is on a regular bus service (X4/X5) between Keswick and Penrith so it is possible to leave the car behind and use public transport - see Traveline for further details.
