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 visit to Lake View. The views are to die for. Accessible location in an inspiration setting. Well worth the journey through blizzards on the A66 to get there. The weather over there was kind to us although very cold. Looking forward to another visit to Lake View later in the year.Ann

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.
