Burnthwaite Farm was our first stopover on the Coast 2 Coast. Walked up from Seascale on the Atlantic Ocean and the Wasdale valley is a great first day's introduction to walking 20 miles a day through the Lake District. The farming family are very friendly and helpful, the room was perfectly decent with an en suite bathroom. The location is... More

Very comfortable and clean accommodation in a magnificent setting. Warm friendly welcome - our second visit since Andrew Grace took over this B&B and working farm. Excellent full English breakfast. Comfortable sitting room with TV, books etc and a log burning stove. Recommend highly. Just a short walk from Wasdale Head Inn where you will find a great bar serving... More

Lovely old farmhouse from the 1600s, in the most ideal situation for a walking holiday, the most stunning scenery but people must realise you dont get the tv /wifi / phone signal etc we all crave today. If you want to get away from it all and meet lovely fellow walkers, get fed well at breakfast and Andrews porridge is... More

Stayed one night on walking trip round Lakes. My mate had stayed before and loves it. Andrew is a top bloke - really enthusiastic welcome. Best porridge of the trip without a doubt. No frills but excellent place to stay. Recommend the packed lunch.

We have just returned from a truly wonderful stay at Burnthwaite Farm. It really is such a beautiful, heart-warming place. Andrew was an incredible host and he went out of his way to help my friend and I as we prepared (a little nervously) for our trek up Scafel Pike. The breakfast was delicious, there's a lovely communal living room... More

This is the second time I've stayed here whilst motor cycling. Its a lovely place to stay. You couldn't be made more welcome by the owners. Room was spotless and plenty of tea and coffee. Theres a great sitting room with a lovely fire. Breakfast was great. If you're a walker then this really is the place to stay. Couldn't... More

There is not another property that I've stayed at in the Lake District that can outmatch the Burnthwaite Farm. Everything is fantastic here. The initial contact, the welcome, the staff, the rooms, the beds, the coal fire, the lounge area, the food and the packed lunches. And it is the best value property that we know of. £31 per person...

View from our window was to Scaffel Pike! Room and all facilities were comfortable, very clean and great value for money. Location is perfect for all who want to set out for an easy or difficult day trip and will be prepared for this with a hearty English breakfast and welcomed back to a warm fire in the living room.

Shame we only stayed one night as this place is a little gem. Excellent value for money, warm, clean, great host (Andrew), perfect cooked breakfast and a amazing location. Perfect for walking Scarfel. Thank you hope to see you and Billy again x

Breakfast was well cooked and... More
