Stayed in May 15 - for being close to the start of Scafell Pike trail Also handy for other walks and a perfect getaway from it all I had forgotten my boots and the owner was kind to lend me a pair which was really appreciated and shows a care and attention for the guests. Breakfast was well cooked and... More

A very friendly B&B, with great views of the fells, together with good access to all the main walks. There is a comfortable lounge for guests, our bedroom was on suit and looked out onto fells, it was not large but big enough and clean. Breakfast had a good choice and set us up for a day on the hills.... More

The best place for direct access to the fells. It is down a track beyond the maintained road and is often the only human dwelling visible from the surrounding fells. Warm, relaxed, working farm, friendly host Andrew and family, good breakfast to set you up for the day. Not loads of parking space but I am sure that can be... More

Han and I stayed here in October for Han's birthday and for us to walk up Scarfell. The house is full of charm and warmth and lots of character. The guys there welcomed us like returning family and it gave us a real sense of relaxation before the forthcoming onslaught! The first couple of days, the weather was fairly bad... More

Packed lunch one of the best I've had and certainly the largest. Andrew the farmer can't do enough for you. Brilliant for walking in the high fells.... More

This is not my first visit to Burnthwaite and it certainly won't be the last. Lovely rooms, great breakfast served by lovely hospitable staff who have so much knowledge to share with guests. Plenty to do locally, walking of course, the beach at sea scale, tea rooms and gorgeous scenery. Really good value here at burnthwaite whether you stay in... More

Used the accommodation at the farm to get an early start up Scafell Pike and it was a perfect location. The owner, Andrew, was most helpful and gave advice on routes to Scafell .... it is a working farm and it was great to see ..... the entire area is beautiful ..... it is worth noting that the National Trust...

An incredible location in one of the most remote valleys in England. Beautiful views and hikes all around, snug rooms, great breakfasts and clean and warm! Our stay was made even better by the friendliness of the owner/farmer and his staff. Highly recommended!

The gentleman running the hotel was fantastic - he was very helpful in our planning efforts and made a delicious breakfast! The rooms are clean and comfortable. The location on the farm is great - the views from the second story room was breathtaking. It's just a short walk to town and the scenic walk is worth doing a few... More

Burnthwaite Farm is the perfect base for fell walking around Wasdale and Mosedale. It's quiet, comfortable, snug and clean - basic doesn't have to mean uncomfortable. Andrew is a great host, very helpful, and does a very good breakfast. I stayed here in 2011, enjoyed it immensely, and returned this year - and will definitely stay here again when and... More
