Lake View Cottage is situated in the attractive village of Thornthwaite as part of the former Swan Coaching Inn dating back to the mid seventeenth century. The cottage itself has glorious views over Lake Bassenthwaite and the Derwent Valley overlooked by the mighty Skiddaw one of the loftiest peaks in the National Park. The Whinlatter forest park popular for walking, outdoor activities and cycling, is also right next door and there are many walks to be enjoyed in the surrounding area together with a chance to see Ospreys which nest nearby. The village of Braithwaite is a mile down the road with 2 pubs and Keswick is just 2 miles away offering evening theatre, cinema and town shopping including the well renowned Booths Supermarket. There are also well known restaurants nearby which include ...Lake View Cottage is situated in the attractive village of Thornthwaite as part of the former Swan Coaching Inn dating back to the mid seventeenth century.
