Thornthwaite is a traditional family run farm set amidst superb scenery in the Lake District National Park in Cumbria. We offer a range of pet friendly self-catering accommodation from cottages through to a "stone tent" or camping barn with static Log Cabin in between. Many of our cottages have wood burning stoves where you can relax by the fireside. Our price list is available online, please have a look!
The farm is situated in the beautiful Woodland Valley. We have five cottages including our new 4-star barn conversion with stunning views of the Lakeland fells.
The cottages are ideally situated for those wishing to go walking or cycling or just relaxing, with many walks from your cottage door. Being in a quieter corner of the Lakes, you easily avoid the worst of the traffic often associated with the central Lake District. As we are not too far from the likes of Coniston, Ambleside or Grizedale forest so there is plenty to do and see within the local area.
We are a working farm!

As part of our little piece of the Lake District, we also have 150 acres of woodland, areas of rare raised bog as well as traditional hay meadows. We recently received an award for our environmental policies. The area is a bird watcher’s paradise, with wildlife including deer, foxes and badgers.
Pets are welcome in the majority of our accommodation ~ please ring for further details
