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. Fine walking opportunities abound for all abilities with many walks from the door - from fine tops to valley rambles. A cycle way passes the door with superb cycling links to the rest of the north Lake District. There is excellent sailing and fishing to be enjoyed on Bassenthwaite Lake as well as an abundance of wildlife. The southern tip of the lake has been designated a wildlife sanctuary, and from the nearby hide guests can observe many and varied forms of wildlife on and around the lake. The famous Bassenthwaite Ospreys can frequently be seen flying overhead during the season. Swan House is served by the X5 Penrith-Keswick-Cockermouth-Workington bus service with a bus stop outside the door, enabling guests to explore the area without using their car. There is a good choice of pubs and places to eat in the area and good shopping in the historic market towns of Keswick (3 miles) and Cockermouth (7 miles).
There is ample parking and benefits from large shared grounds with pond, orangery, picnic/barbecue area and decking.

The apartment was comfortable and spotlessly clean. We have stayed here quite a few years and keep coming back. Its such a good location with fantastic views over the fells. As a customer of Keswick Cottages I feel very well cared for and catered for. We have stayed at several of their properties and they have all had the same high standard of comfort and cleanliness.
Fantastic flat in a beautiful setting with great access to Bassenthwaite and Whinlatter. Only slight downside is not having a pub in walking distance!
