Thornthwaite

On the edge of Whinlatter Forest and by the southern shores of Bassenthwaite Lake is the northern Lakes village of Thornthwaite. It’s the perfect location for a relaxing cottage holiday in the Lake District with easy access to mountains, lakes and forest, as well as traditional Lakeland towns and villages.

Whinlatter Forest is close by and there are attractions here for all the family, including mountain biking tracks and ‘Go Ape’, where you can safely experience high wires and zip slides. There are also play trails and discovery trails for younger children and more peaceful trails where you might encounter some of the local wildlife if you’re lucky. The excellent visitor centre houses an exhibition about the ospreys that nest in Dodd Wood, as well as a well-stocked gift shop and cafe serving home cooked food.

Many footpaths can be found around the village with several leading into Whinlatter Forest. Try the footpath from the village centre which takes you past the flowing waters of Comb Beck, rising quite steeply in places into the forest. Or take one of the walks around Powter How wood to Bassenthwaite Lake. The lake, which is owned by the National Park Authority, is one of the largest in the Lake District at 4 miles long and ¾ mile wide.

To the south Thornthwaite is in close proximity to Derwentwater, where you can catch the launch at Portinscale to explore the lake, the dramatic mountains and valleys of the Whinlatter Pass and the bustling northern Lakes town of Keswick, with its plentiful shops, cafes and restaurants. Thornthwaite village itself does not have any shops but provisions can easily be found at nearby Braithwaite and Keswick.
