Horse & Farrier Refurbishment

We are delighted to announce the completion of our recent refurbishment here at the Horse & Farrier.

We are delighted to introduce to our accommodation offering two terrific new suites; the Blencathra and the Saddleback. Our suites retain all the charm of a country coaching inn whilst introducing a fresh new design and are perfect for family breaks and romantic getaways. In addition, our other seven bedrooms have all been updated to the same high standards with king size and twin options available.

During our reshape here at the Horse & Farrier, we’ve increased and enhanced our dining space by extending into what was the adjoining cottage. Immense care and attention has gone into the planning process, partly due to our Grade II buildings listing, but also our dedication to keeping the authentic feel of this 17th century traditional Lakeland Inn. We have retained the open fires, comfortable seats and introduced a range of gorgeous fabrics and textures with complementing rustic wooden and stone floors. Our bar area has also been fully refurbished and we’ve created an area that is suitable for private parties and functions.

We've also enhanced our outdoor space introducing a timber covered area, ideal for al fresco dining when the weather is misbehaving!

Railway Path Funding Approved

There's great news for the Horse and Farrier, as customers will again be able to walk, cycle or run from Keswick to Threlkeld as they used to do before the bridges were destroyed in storm Desmond. Many of our customers used to walk up from Keswick enjoy a nice lunch and either walk or take the bus back, since Storm Desmond that has been a difficult route except for the fittest. The Lake District Foundation has recently announced funding for full steam ahead for the reconnection of the Keswick to Threlkeld Railway Path.

The foundation said “A £7.9 million funding package has been agreed to allow work to start on the final phase of reconnecting the Keswick to Threlkeld multi user trail which was severely damaged in Storm Desmond three years ago to the day (5 December).

This is an important milestone in this complex project which has required significant work to get to this stage, and it is fitting that key funding partners and local users gathered to mark this development exactly three years since the fateful storm.
 
Funding has been approved so far from Highways England and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). Additionally, community fundraising by the Lake District Foundation has resulted in a £130,000 donation all which will enable the project to go ahead.”
