Nestled in the hillside, Ladstock Hall has the most spectacular views across the valley towards the mighty Skiddaw range from its elevated location on the edge of Thornthwaite village. This Grade II listed building was originally the vicarage and then became a very grand Country House Hotel and a renowned venue for weddings. It has now been converted into several apartments and cottages, the standard of which is excellent. No.6 is a first floor apartment furnished and equipped throughout to appeal to the most discerning guests. It benefits from spectacular views of the Skiddaw range from its first floor situation. Its spacious living room is over 26 feet long looking out towards Skiddaw with a large bay window area furnished with two armchairs to make the most of the fabulous view. A spotting scope (telescope) is provided and is ideal for watching the ospreys over Bassenthwaite Lake. Contemporary furnishings provide a comfortable relaxing retreat after a day on the fells. The large kitchen/dining room has oak units with granite worktops and is equipped with everything needed to entertain up to eight people around the large oak topped table and enjoy the same wonderful views of Skiddaw. Both bedrooms have fitted wardrobes, furniture and Freeview TV, and the twin bedroom has a DVD player, ideal for early rising children or rainy days.
Thornthwaite lies 3 miles to the west of Keswick at the foot of Whinlatter and close to Bassenthwaite Lake. This area is great for mountain biking in Whinlatter Forest, and walking on the surrounding fells, and sailing or fishing on the lake. There are many walks to be enjoyed from the door as well as easy access to Newlands, Borrowdale and the Western Lakes. There is a bridle way immediately behind Ladstock Hall where you can walk to Braithwaite, a little over half a mile, which has a village shop, restaurant and three pubs each serving good food and real ale.
