Description

Set on a working farm with wheelchair access, panoramic views and private patio. Central Lakeland location with lots of attractions to visit nearby.

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.

    We have been going to the farm house many years, and always enjoy our time there. We enjoy the walk down to hawkshead village across the fields. It is great for families, lovely & peaceful with fantastic views.

    Excellent Cottage, downstairs room good for disabled/OAP use front area of house excellent to sit in and enjoy the view over ambleside and the hills of the Lakes. Several reasonably easy walks from Cottage/Hawkshead.

    This is a little out of the way,(still only 10 mins drive from Ambleside - 5 from Hawkeshead) but if you want peace and quiet and fantastic views it's brilliant. Inside is bigger than it looks in the photos. Plenty of parking space. Everything clean and tidy when we arrived, and the complementary tea, coffee and biscuits were much appreciated.

    This was the second time we've stayed at the Farmhouse, Thompson Ground but the last time was six or seven years ago. It was just as good this time around and in fact, with the Wi-Fi, even better we think! The views from the cottage are breathtaking on a clear day and walks (and Herdies) right outside your front door. Only a 15minute easy walk from pubs in Hawkshead, across fields or on roads but will need a torch with you at night. Many thanks again, really hope we will be back again!
