Lake District Views

Shundraw Cottage sits in an enviable position with fabulous views over St John’s in the Vale in Cumbria.


St John’s in the Vale is a peaceful valley offering picturesque walks along the river and panoramic views from High Rigg and views to the Helvellyn Range

Relax and Unwind

Our cottage offers the perfect Lake District romantic retreat.


SHUNDRAW Cottage is situated in the beautiful valley of St John’s and nestles between Blencathra and Helvellyn. Only 3 miles from the amenities and bustle of Keswick it feels a world away although the nearest village Threlkeld, is just two miles away and has 2 pubs and a café. Shundraw cottage is a tranquil location ideal for walkers exploring the Keswick area or just relaxing in this peaceful location.

There are stunning views towards both Blencathra and  Helvellyn and lots of peaceful walks direct from the cottage. Many of our visitors have commented that when you wake in the morning it is so peaceful that it feels as though there is no one else around but the sheep and the birds.

The Cottage was built in 2004 on the site of redundant farm buildings and although attached to the owners farmhouse has independant access . The name Shundraw is derived from the Old Norse and means Look Out Hill. We think it has been inhabited even before that time. There are several public footpaths nearby offering the opportunity to explore without the need for driving.

The cottage has an enclosed lawn area to the front and a patio area equipped with outdoor furniture and BBQ. There is ample parking for 2 cars. We welcome two well behaved dogs.
