Lake District self-catering Holiday Cottages

Thornthwaite is a traditional Lakeland family run farm, set amidst the beautiful scenery of the Woodland Valley, known as one of the “Three Jewels of Lakeland” immortalised by Wordsworth, located in the Southern Fells of the Lake District in Cumbria. 

Established in 1968, we have four self-catering holiday cottages sleeping between 2 and 6 people,  including our 4 Star Gold Award barn conversion with stunning views of the Lake District fells, and two hand crafted Log Cabins, with views across the valley and ancient woodland. The self-catering holiday cottages are a home from home, and come with everything you will need to make your stay in the Lake District an enjoyable one.

The Holiday Cottages and Log Cabins are available for  short breaks or longer throughout the year.

Thornthwaite is ideally situated for those wishing to go walking, cycling or just relaxing, with many walks and cycle routes from your cottage door including the Lakes & Dales Loop and the Bay Cycle Way, and for those who enjoy fishing we also have our own trout fishing lake.

Thornthwaite Farm is located within easy reach of all the main Lake District attractions, however if you need to get away from it all and relax in a friendly atmosphere, our farm and holiday cottages in the Lake District are perfect.

From the 30th December Cumbria was placed into Tier 4, this means that we are required by law to temporarily close until we are moved out of Tier 4.  The next review date is 13th January 2021.  Before completing a booking with us, please ensure you are aware of the restrictions relating to the tier that you reside in.  You can check which local tier you are in on the Government website.
