Thornyfield Cottage description

Holiday home
Thornyfield is a high quality, Grade II listed holiday cottage four miles from Bowness and Windermere. With two bedrooms, a double and a single, this holiday home can sleep up to three people. There is also a bathroom, a kitchen and a sitting room with woodburner and dining area. Outside, there is off road parking for two cars, and a patio with furniture and BBQ. This is a lovely cottage for a romantic getaway.

The twin towns of Bowness and Windermere are both vibrant, fun-filled places set within the splendid scenery of the Lake District. Both towns provide a range of amenities, shops and restaurants to suit all tastes whilst Ambleside offers the additional attraction of a boat ride to Bowness, the Lakeside Aquarium and Beatrix Potter's 'Hill Top House' at Sawrey. Grizedale Forest Park is within easy driving distance and is home to a range of activities including many good walks, mountain biking and the 'Go Ape' adventure park. The region also boasts many National Trust properties as well as a variety of water sports for those who prefer a more adrenaline-fuelled trip. Children will enjoy a trip to the World of Beatrix Potter in Bowness whilst the villages of Grasmere, Coniston Water, Kendal, Keswick and the Lakeland Mountains are all within easy reach.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

We particularly liked the peace and quiet along with the comfort of the cottage.

This was our best holiday yet. Delightful setting for this cottage, tranquil and with such eye catching views. The cottage is set in a valley away from the madding crowd. The owners made sure we were comfortable and anything else we needed just had to ask. Thornyfield Cottage is quite the height of luxury, attention to detail being paramount. What a relaxing and refreshing holiday cottage.

We liked the remoteness of the Cottage. Close enough to the major attractions and would love to return.

A charming and well located destination, incredibly helpful owners and gorgeous views out over fields. It was just far enough into the countryside to be completely rural, but close enough to large towns to be well connected. A wonderful holiday despite the extraordinary weather. Brilliant - we're planning on going back!
