Property Description

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 1/2 mile away. Beatrix Potter’s former home, Hill Top (NT), 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 NT 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. 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.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. A fantastic property for a number of people shareing! Large lounge, kitchen and dinning area, and three bath rooms; (3 toilets, 2 baths and a shower). A bit of a hill to walk up from Hawkshead, but well worth it for an evening in the 4 great pubs. Great walking are, and a short drive to Ambleside and Coniston. Cottage had all mod cons, a real home from home. For a taxi back from Coniston one night, (5 pubs, chip shop, petrol station, shops and more,) it cost £18, but for 9 people £2 each was cheeper than the bus at £3.75 each. April 2012.
  2. This was our first visit to the accommodation and as there were quite a number of us we were unsure. Our worries need not have been as the the farm house was fabulous, plenty of room for the adults and children all the extras you need to take for small children provided and lovely neighbours. Would definitely use the the farm house again or one of the other smaller cottages in the block. March 2012.
  3. A very good location if you like to walk with access to Grizedale Forrest, Tarn How and Hawkeshead to name a few. Good size property and good value at this time of the year. Would go again. March 2012.
  4. Fantastic views and walks from the front door. Lovely open fire. Well equipped and clean. Highly recommeneded for a large family or group of friends. Aug 2011.

Great Walks from the door, and the girls love the walk through the fields down to Hawkshead village, plenty of little lambs for them to take pictures of.
