    “Wonderful stay. ”

    Just got back from a Great holiday staying in little galey cottage on this farm. We stayed here for a whole week, this cottage has every thing you would need for a weeks stay. The out side area was great with the sheep field right behind our garden. My daughter loved the family of cats and kittens based in the actual farm yard. The hosts were very helpful and friendly. This is a very remote farm and cottages which was fine by us, It was very peaceful. The kids never got bored. I must admit we found the tiny lanes a bit daunting to start with as we are a family of townies but by the end of the week we had mastered them down to a tee. . I think this is an ideal base for exploring the lakes....just don’t trust your sat nav or you’ll end up in the most tiniest of roads. If we ever came back we would defiantly stay here again. thanks for the best weeks stay.

    Details

    Thornthwaite Farm is set amidst the beautiful scenery of the Woodland Valley. We have four cottages including our 4 star Gold Award barn conversion, and our hand built 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 can enjoy going badger watching at dusk, seeing 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.)
