    “A perfectly wonderful stay!”

    My sister and I loved the northern Lake District and couldn't have found a more lovely place to stay than The Bothy. The views are beautiful, the heating (which we needed when we stayed!) was brilliant, everything we needed was there. A longer stay than our 4 nights would have been nice! Car parking was easy and well marked. Surprised and pleased to find Dvds and books galore. Nicely maintained. Only downside was an unpleasant smell of mould in the hallway and staircase but we didn't notice ...

Car parking was easy and well marked. Surprised and pleased to find Dvds and books galore. Nicely maintained. Only downside was an unpleasant smell of mould in the hallway and staircase but we didn't notice it in the apartment itself. Also, the kettle leaked, but apart from that, we would want to stay there again. Anyone who has a car ... go there!

The property

If you're looking for comfortable and modern accommodation in the Lake District with spectacular views, then The Bothy at Thornthwaite Hall will tick all your boxes.

A first-floor apartment with views towards Skiddaw and Ullock Pike and the fells overlooking Derwentwater.

The Bothy is located at Thornthwaite Hall, formally an 18th century farmhouse, in the picturesque village of Thornthwaite.

Being just over five minutes drive from bustling Keswick it’s the perfect family getaway in the Lakes at any time of year.

The cosy living/dining room has a feature gas fire and TV/DVD but it's the outstanding views that you'll want to watch, especially during one of the spectacular Lakeland sunsets.

The kitchen is well equipped and there's a smart modern bathroom with bathtub and overhead shower, wash basin and WC.

The Bothy sleeps four in two bedrooms, one double and a twin bedroom with a standard single and 2 ft 6 child’s single.

In both bedrooms you’ll wake up to more of those astonishing views over the fells.

There are seating areas in the shared garden and plenty of off road parking at Thornthwaite Hall but for any visitors to The Bothy, it is the access the fell side tracks, Whinlatter Forest, and the countryside beyond that will be the real attraction. The vibrant town of Keswick, with its restaurants, bars and family attractions is a buzzing place to have on the doorstep and is a short drive or a pleasant walk from Thornthwaite Hall.

Within a mile, along a forest track or by road is Braithwaite with its traditional country pubs and village shop.

A short walk to the north is the beautiful Bassenthwaite Lake with its fantastic views, and superb bird watching opportunities, including a bird watching ‘hide’ where at certain times of year you might even see Ospreys feeding!

Many classic Lakeland walks can be started from The Bothy and keen mountain bikers will love the purpose built trails through the nearby Whinlatter Forest.

Further afield you can access all the delights that Britain's favourite National Park has to offer.

Romantic Ullswater, Lake Windermere, Ambleside, all the many charming Lakeland villages and even historic Carlisle and Hadrian's Wall are easily accessible from The Bothy but with the superb walking and cycling on the doorstep, you'll be happy to stay within the environs of Thornthwaite.

Whatever the time of year, The Bothy is an ideal getaway in this glorious part of the world and the perfect base for exploring all the delights of the Lake District
