Description

A cosy cottage for three located on a working farm which boasts splendid views in all directions. Rural feel yet close to attractions.

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.

    disappointed with the cleanliness of the oven which was unusable, turned it on and the room was filled with blue smoke which tells me that the oven had not been cleaned. The dishes and utensils need to be addressed i.e. replaced with new - not everybody wants to eat out or can afford to. We have holidayed in these cottages for many years, they look a bit run down now utensil and equipment wise, vacum cleaner needs replacing, frying pans need replacing, chipped cups, knives and forks were left out on the work surface when they should be in a drawer.

    Location and views superb. Warm cottage with ample hot water. Shower adequate but could be improved. Oven cookware needs adding to. Walks to Hawkshead and Tarn Hows very easy. Mattress on double bed too soft. Supplied towels need replacing.

    Perfect size cottage for ourselves and teenage son. The cottage has a spectacular view which changes by the minute as the weather moves the clouds across the landscape. There are plenty of walks in peaceful countryside. Despite staying at the height of summer we would only see crowds of tourists in the busy towns. We enjoyed staying on a working farm - the cows were particularly amusing when they crowded the gates when we went out or came back. The cottage was warm to come home to as the heating was set to turn on and although there was also an open log fire, we didn't really need to light it in the summer. It would be lovely in the colder months. We ate at local pubs and enjoyed all our meals. We were very happy at Cuckoo Brow cottage and would love to return.
