Thornythwaite Farm is a cosy smallholding tucked into the foot of the fells above Ullswater lake. We're lucky enough to have space to work and play in this beautiful place, and for our growing menagerie of hens, ducks, sheep and bees. The fells are on our doorstep with the lake a 5 minute drive down into the valley and Keswick and Penrith are both easily reached in quarter of an hour. Dockray is a 5 minute walk down the road and is home to The Royal hotel which serves great food all day.
“I had such a lovely time staying at Thorneythwaite farm! It is a beautiful house surrounded by stunning scenery! Victoria was so so welcoming and made me feel completely at home. She is also doing great work to make the place very environmentally friendly... And the homemade sourdough was delicious!!”
The Garden Flat is in a wonderfully peaceful location overlooking Ullswater with panoramic views of timeless yet ever-changing fells, lake and sky. Experience it all from the bay window seat, sofa or even the bed, from the bench outside or on the lawns of Wreay Mansions. Step out of our front door in to an unforgettable landscape. We're on the Ullswater Way walking route and Pooley Bridge is close by. Enjoy a pint brewed at the Brackenrigg Inn. Fine dine or wild swim at Another Place.
“My partner and I spent two nights at the Garden Flat. It was absolutely lovely and the perfect place to wind down and enjoy nature. The view is incredible and the flat is located on a quiet hill. The pub at the bottom of the hill is perfect for some tasty food that will fill you up for not too much money. From the house it's very easy to get to the Ullswater Way that will take you through the hills. Definitely recommend! Best wishes, Lisa and Scott”
Nestled at the bottom of a private track, Far Boathouse is a beautifully appointed tranquil, Romantic retreat right on the edge of Ullswater, in fact you don’t actually see it until you descend down toward towards the lake. Far enough from the noise and bustle of life, but within easy access to the real world, only a 15-minute drive from the M6. Sublime for mini moon, honeymoon, a unique romantic venue, anniversary, birthday, simply get away and relax. We leave a nice bottle & Chocolates.
“Wow what an amazing place to stay! One of the best airb&bs we’ve stayed at. The Boat House is beautiful, stunning views and so cosy. It has everything you could need - even a great dvd collection! Andy particularly enjoyed a freezing morning swim to start each day as I watched from the balcony armed with a cuppa and hot water bottle! A great spot to explore the area. We would absolutely recommend and hope to return one day! Jayne thank you so much for amazing hamper of treats, we were so spoilt!”
