    “loved it.”

    A little rough trying to get to the cottage but the cottage was perfect. It had an old cottage feel but with modern necessities like heating. The staff was friendly & helpful.

    Thornthwaite Farm is set amidst the beautiful scenery of the Woodland Valley. We have five cottages including our 4 star Gold Award barn conversion and a luxury Gold Award Log Cabin all with stunning views of the Lakeland fells. The cottages and Log Cabin are ideally situated for those wishing to go walking or cycling or just relaxing, with many walks from your cottage door.
    The farm provides a unique diversity of landscape, including lowland flower meadows, ancient woods, rocky outcrops, streams and rivers. The farm also offers a diverse range of wildlife and fauna including rare orchids and mosses including a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Area of Conservation. We have 150 acres of beautiful woodland to explore, which are a vivid carpet of bluebells in the spring.

    Additionally, guests regularly enjoy going badger watching at dusk, watching the fox cubs playing or catching a glimpse of the barn owls out hunting. We also have available to guests our own trout fishing lake and river bank fishing.

    Thornthwaite is located within easy reach of all the major attractions, however if you need to get away from it all and relax in a friendly atmosphere our farm is perfect. Each property has free Wi-Fi (please note the speed is slow.)
