Lake View is situated in the attractive village of Thornthwaite as part of the former Swan Coaching Inn dating back to the mid seventeenth century. The cottage itself has glorious views over Lake Bassenthwaite and the Derwent Valley overlooked by the mighty Skiddaw one of the loftiest peaks in the National Park. The Whinlatter forest park popular for walking, outdoor activities and cycling, is also right next door and there are many walks to be enjoyed in the surrounding area together with a chance to see Ospreys which nest nearby. The village of Braithwaite is a mile down the road with 2 pubs and Keswick is just 2 miles away offering evening theatre, cinema and town shopping including the well renowned Booths Supermarket. There are also well known restaurants nearby which include The Pheasant Inn and Middle Ruddings pub.

5* Gold awarded apartment enjoying a quiet, unspoilt rural location the Swan Hotel, a former 17th century coaching inn has been sympathetically converted into several quality apartments. On the edge of the village of Thornthwaite, within five minutes walking distance of Bassenthwaite Lake and surrounded by delightful scenery it is the ideal location for a relaxing break.
Family walking holiday with grown up sons. This property was a dream to live in for the week. All the kitchen appliances and crockery were of a very high standard. Beds were very comfortable and bathrooms were modern. Central heating was easy to use as you just had to control it with the thermostat because it was on all the time. So no hassle working out timers etc. It thoroughly deserves a 5* status. Great location for walks and a lovely quiet village which is just a short drive into Keswick. You do have to use your car to get to places but this really wasn’t an issue as the property is worth it for it’s setting and views. Ample parking too right outside. I would recommend this apartment and would definitely return.Vick
