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 and includes feature such as low level light switches, grab rails and a shower seat. 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.

Really super location. Just a shame 4 cottages together so not as super peaceful as we hoped. Super host, solved WiFi issues really quickly. Perhaps you could mention that there's a short walk to Hawkshead just down the farm track to the right so no need to take the cramped road route. Recommend without hesitation, surpassed my expectations.

Cuckoo Brow Cottage is small but comfortable and well equipped with new looking lounge furniture and carpet. The outdoor seating/dining area is a particular bonus given the cottage's location and wonderful views. The owners are not on site but respond quickly to messages. A problem with the boiler was dealt with the same day. We will be booking again.

A very clean and comfortable cottage. The view is spectacular, and we love the location, the perfect base for walks to Tarn Hows and Coniston. There is a bus stop at Hawkshead Hill and I’m Hawkshead which we found handy. A bonus for us was that there was a new kitchen (different than the photo in the website), and a barbecue with table and chairs out the front which we used in the evenings, weather permitting. I also lie that there was a big grassy area right outside. Another bonus was that the bathroom has a bath. All really great for children.
