Showing properties from Thornthwaite
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.
This was our second stay at Lake View, our first being last year in the middle of the two lockdowns. A lot of attention had been paid to make sure that the cottage was as clean and safe as could be with the knowledge that we had about Covid at the time. However it was still comfortable, well equipped, the cottage was cozy and the outside environs were also immaculate. The location is lovely, so handy for Keswick and anywhere in the Northern Lakes really. Thinking of a staycation holiday again this year, it was a ‘no brainer’ to come back. Same high standard of accommodation and equipment. We had a lovely week and have now booked already for next year, bringing family with us this time. Although this cottage is out of Keswick on what would seem a back road, it is close to the A66, only 10mins drive to Keswick, has a regular bus going through (bus stop right across the road) as well as many walks from the doorstep, the property is nestled below Whinlatter. All communication with Keswick Cottages was prompt and courteous. We would highly recommend them.Louise & Martyn Lewis

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.
The flat was extremely well equipped, which was a real bonus. It was furnished to a very high standard which we thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated , the directions were spot on and picking up the keys was simple. Situated about 3.5 miles from Keswick it was a perfect quiet location with many nice walks directly from the flat I staid here with my mother and two sisters, it was a great weekend and the quality of the flat just added to a perfect weekend, thank you!Hughes
