For lovers of tranquility, as well as the beauty of the English Lake District, a holiday base amongst the quieter Northern Fells is now regarded by many as essential. Thornthwaite is peaceful and scenic, away from the busy and crowded areas, yet within easy access of the Central and Southern lakes.
Thwaite Howe- a country house built of local stone in the 1860s, is situated in its own attractive grounds of two and a half acres. Thornthwaite Forest provides a stunning backdrop to the rear, and the house stands in an elevated position looking across the Derwent Valley to the magnificent mountain views of Skiddaw, Blencathra and Helvellyn.
The lounge takes full advantage of the panorama, being located at the front of the hotel. Exquisite wines and cuisine can be enjoyed in our comfortable restaurant which enjoys panoramic views of the surrounding Lakeland Fells.
