The view, (and the low price) and the breakfast are just two of many reasons to stay at The White Horse Inn Bunkhouse near the pretty Lakeland village of Threlkeld. The fact the Coast to Coast cycle route passes the door and you can walk up Blencathra from the garden make it the perfect base for walkers, fell runners and cyclists. Keswick with all its attractions is a short drive down the road. And finally the traditional White Horse Inn just below the bunkhouse serves fantastic home cooked food and local ales. Be sure to book, as it’s very popular.
The White Horse Inn and Bunkhouse, by Blencathra in the Lakes, is open.
