Affordable bunkhouse sleeping 20, next to country pub near Keswick, ideal for groups of friends and walkers

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
The White Horse Inn Bunkhouse, Threlkeld, Cumbria, sleeps 20 in 4 bedrooms.

The White Horse Inn Bunkhouse has been converted from the stables of this traditional Lake District inn at the foot of Blencathra (Wainwright's favourite mountain). The White Horse is a country pub with great pub food, open fires, local ales and a warm welcome. The Bunkhouse offers a great value base for groups of friends and reunions, walkers and cyclists.

Four of the original stables have been converted into centrally heated bedrooms:

1 bunkroom sleeps 8
2 bunkrooms sleep 6 each
1 bunkroom sleeps 4

Bunkrooms may be taken individually, or a large group can take exclusive use of the whole bunk house. 24 people would be 'cosy' but do-able. Sleeping bags are recommended, however linen may be hired for a £5 fee when organised in advance.

We are happy to accept groups, large or small, for weekends, midweeks and, if required, single nights.

There is a basic galley kitchen with electric induction hob, microwave and a coin operated clothes dryer. A communal dining area seats 16-20 people.

The toilet block has male and female toilets, basins and showers.

Guests are welcome to socialise in the pub which is open from 11am to 11pm and has free WiFi, hot drinks and good beer. Food is served 12-2pm and 6-9pm on weekdays and all day on weekends.

The White Horse is just outside the picturesque village of Threlkeld in the hamlet of Scales at the foot of the Blencathra and Sharp Edge, ideal for trekking and biking, with paths to the mountains immediately from the beer garden. The Coast to Coast (C2C) route snakes past the front door of the inn which remains a popular stop for thirsty cyclists and walkers alike. The A66 provides easy access to the Inn and Bunk House with Penrith 15 minutes away by car and Keswick only 4 miles away. The X4 and X5 buses also stop at Scales.
