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.

    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!

    Lovely comfortable cottage in a stunning location. Despite the wet weather we managed to find plenty to occupy ourselves in this beautiful area. The cottage could do with an extra shower for the number of people it accommodates but as the 2 bathrooms both have sloping ceilings there is little room to install over- bath showers. The kitchen is quite well equipped and we appreciated the use of a slow cooker, however we felt there could have been some larger saucepans. We also appreciated the daily deliveries of milk and basic groceries from the milkman. Tea, coffee, milk and biscuits were left for our arrival and much appreciated after a extremely long journey.

    Wonderful views from front patio and nice grass area for young children to play safely. 10 people would be a squeeze, especially for eating. Accommodation is not luxurious, but has everything you need for a family holiday.

    Our family have been coming to the farmhouse for several years and we always have a great time. Our ages range from 6 months to 93 years and everyone enjoys this week in the Lakes. The farmhouse is in a great position for access to lots of beautiful places but we happily spend a lot of time at the house - the view is fantastic and our family has created many happy memories celebrating birthdays and anniversaries and enjoying family meals. We just love it there and think of it as 'our' farmhouse!

    We had a wonderful week as the weather was perfect and we could really enjoy the superb views from the front of the house. Perfect location for us , easy to locate and many places to visit close by. Well-equipped house although we would have preferred all the lights in the kitchen to work as 50 % didn't and we had to use a torch to see cooker settings etc. and this was in light and sunny conditions. Very comfortable beds and lots of storage in bedrooms. We appreciated having our milk delivered every morning!
