A short walk to the delightful Longsleddale and Dales Way, Thomasin makes a super base for exploring the South Lakes with the Eden Valley and Yorkshire Dales easily accessible.
Selsed has its own garden area with views across Tarns and the fields dotted with livestock to the Howgills beyond. A shared enclosed BBQ area available to enjoy when our Lake District weather will allow .For those nature lovers among you, Selside Hall has an adjacent fresh water tarn stocked with fish and a haven for birds within the grounds – guests are welcome to enjoy a section of this area, ideal for quiet reading and picnics. Attention to detail and great styling have resulted in a charming retreat with much use of solid oak and other natural materials throughout.
