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 1/2 mile away. Beatrix Potter’s former home, Hill Top (NT), 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 NT 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.

Ground floor: Living/dining room/kitchen. 1 twin bedroom. Wet room with shower seat, hand rails and toilet. First floor: 2 bedrooms: 1 double, 1 single.

    The cottage is set in the most beautiful location. Although not luxurious, it was cosy. All service areas were clean but areas such as corners and by the radiators were overlooked on this occasion. We also had to wash the sticky cutlery tray before we could use it. However we enjoyed the use of the dishwasher. The shower area is spacious but would look better if some cracked tiles were replaced. The instructions regarding the central heating did not apply to the box in situ. However, when I telephoned I received helpful and clear advice. Perhaps the owner could briefly meet with new arrivals to enable them to ask any questions. Altogether a very enjoyable stay.

    We went in the first week of August. It is a fabulous location and overall we found the accommodation very suitable for us. The kitchen equipment is a bit limited, but we did eat out quite often so not a major drama. The cottage was very clean but we did rewash some cutlery and glassware as it felt it had been unused for a period of time, so possibly others ate out often too! We managed to leave a toiletry bag which the owner posted on to us very promptly. Thank you and thank you for sharing such idyllic location.

    Fantastic location and some of the best views in the lakes from the cottage. Comfortable and spacious enough, whilst cosy by the fire..and we appreciated the handy supply of logs and the local milkman deliveries. Could benefit from a better setup to store damp and muddy boots and coats maybe? Loved being on the footpath to Tarn Hows and walking into Hawkshead...we didn't use it but the 505 bus goes right past the farm too.

    We really like this cottage and this was our second stay here. Fantastic view and location. Only slight minus is main living area is a touch small for 5 people. Not amazingly well equipped, but does have dishwasher. Main bathroom (a wetroom) is ground floor + large - very good for hanging up wet kit etc. Strongly recommend and would stay again.
