Lying under the protection of one of the Lake District’s most iconic mountains, Blencathra, Threlkeld – or ‘the well of the thrall’ to give it its true Norse title – has many facets to enthral you … Bridge End Farm being one of the most captivating.
As you approach, you’ll fall in love with the enveloping sense of peace and welcoming warmth. Instantly, you spy the majestic woods, brimming with ageless horse chestnuts and bronzing beech trees. Isolated, yet minutes from the village.
Come on in and join us in the entrance-dining hall. A sense of its 250-year-old history pervades this idyllic farmhouse and traditional beams give you a taste of this heritage. Hear the echoes of Christmas in this hall, with laughter peeling off the thick stone walls as the extended family gathers around the table, the 8ft Christmas tree extending to the mezzanine lounge above and the mountain melting into the inky sky through the window beyond. To the right lie three ample storage rooms, where you can house all your walking gear and more.
Step through onto pristine Porcelanosa porcelain tiles, into the snug. This lounge embodies a real sense of history with its original oak beams and stone walls. Take the weight off your feet in one of the inset window seats and admire your surroundings. Through the window Blencathra sits patiently, a living portrait, its face ever changing throughout the seasons. Simply turn your head to capture views of the romantic farmhouse courtyard and inviting woods beyond.
Settle down into a sofa, this room has it all: cool in summer and cosy in winter heated by the crackling wood burning stove, a wonderfully restful place. Put your feet up and admire the stately stone chimney breast, each stone sourced from one of the many local mines. This room is a testament to Lakes history itself.
Stretch your legs and rustle up a scrumptious snack in the neighbouring solid pippy oak bespoke kitchen. A delightful breakfast room, this gleaming country kitchen tempers tradition with tone to a tee. Admire the authentic oak beams as you make your morning cuppa, socked feet toasty warm. Why not stew up a country casserole in your Britannia electric double oven? It’s easy to multi task when you have a six-burner gas hob. As for the clean-up, your integrated Neff dishwasher can handle that. We have more pressing matters at hand…
While you wait for that freshly baked bread to crust up in the oven, have a peek at the handy rear porch and bathroom (the kids won’t need to trail mud through this sparkling kitchen) before heading back through to the entrance hall. There are two staircases leading upstairs, but for now we’d like to take you up this set.
As you ascend to the light and airy mezzanine sitting area take a good look around. Breath-taking views on three of the four sides greet you in this opulent open plan space. Perfect for guests who like to keep themselves private, you even have your own kitchen area here.
Along the landing, three more effortlessly stylish bedrooms await their occupants, one even boasts its own luxurious shower room, but don’t linger too long…we want to introduce you to your very own heavenly haven.
Welcome to the master suite barn conversion! The current owners rate this area as the best feature of Bridge End Farm – and we have to agree. The convergence of contemporary and conventional plays out poetically in this epic space. Explore your dressing room, with all the modern facilities neatly wrapped within the framework of a traditional Lakeland farmhouse. Take time out to sink into an indulgent steaming bath with a glass of something refreshing. There’s even a private office (or perhaps a nursery) neatly tucked away at the very end.
