A characterful cottage set on a working farm with a warming open fire and plenty of outdoor space.

Heart of Lakeland, with panoramic views

A nature-lovers’ paradise

Wheelchair access in Tarns Cottage

Thompson Ground is a working hill farm in the heart of Lakeland, with panoramic country views. Visitors here will soon find that this wonderful area is filled with a profusion of things to see and pursuits to enjoy, from walking in the beautiful Grizedale Forest and on the Langdales, and going pony trekking, to participating in the water sports and launch trips on nearby Windermere and Coniston Water. However you choose to spend your time, any of these four cosy and comfortable cottages make an ideal holiday base to come back to. The Lake District itself hardly needs any introduction. In addition to the choice natural scenery, amongst some of England’s finest, there are also lots of interesting ‘man-made’ attractions to visit (some more publicised than others). Why not start with the picturesque village of Hawkshead, which is ½ mile away. Beatrix Potter’s former home, Hill Top (National Trust), lies near Sawrey, whilst The Wordsworth Museum in nearby Grasmere, occupies Dove Cottage, which the poet William Wordsworth made his home between 1799 and 1808. There are also many National Trust properties in the vicinity, from the magnificent Levens Hall to the tiny Old Bridge House at Ambleside. The cottages are attractively furnished and fully equipped, with sealed window units, a storm porch and Tarn Cottage (ref NP57) is specially designed for use by visitors with some degree of physical handicap. Each has their own furnished patio area, and all have access to a front lawn, which is the ideal venue for children and adults to socialise and play. Locally there are plenty of pubs and restaurants, any of which are perfect for spending a relaxing evening in. Stabling for 2 horses is available on request.

    Stunning scenery from your front door. If you love walking, it is perfect. A lovely footpath down into Hawkeshead, which is a stunningly quaint village, with pubs, good food, Beatrix Potter Gallery and little shops. Quite a climb back up, but you come home fitter!! House has all the kitchen equipment, bedding and towels. Bed a little bit lumpy which gave me a backache by the end of the stay and toilet was very noisy on flushing, but informed them of these and I am sure they will be fixed by now. Milk delivered to your door daily along with eggs/bacon on order. Picnic table outside to eat and enjoy the view. Would definitely go back. Great area to explore!

    Excellent location for us. Lounge furniture a bit old, cleanliness acceptable but would benefit from a 'deep clean'.

    Our second visit. We do not want to stay in luxury cottages - this one is comfortable, homely and well equipped. The setting is fantastic and we love the view. Good location for exploring - we kept busy for a week never venturing further than the Coniston and Langdale areas. Like all cottages - prices are quite high for a week these days but I hope we will be returning.
