Far enough away from the bustle of Keswick to be relaxing but not too far if you need shops etc. Great views across Bassenthwaite lake to the Skiddaw range.
The accommodation is very good with everything you might need for your stay.
Plenty of walking from Thornthwaight village and only minutes drive away from Borrowdale and Newlands valley.
Pubs ,food etc. at nearby Braithwaite 1.5ml. or Keswick 2.5ml.
This was our second visit to Lake View. The views are to die for. Accessible location in an inspiration setting. Well worth the journey through blizzards on the A66 to get there. The weather over there was kind to us although very cold. Looking forward to another visit to Lake View later in the year.
A last minute booking to take advantage of the snow provided by the Beast From the East. Fabulous location with easy access to all areas of the park including walks from the door into Whinlatter and beyond. Cottage was very warm, clean and comfortable. It had everything we needed. A real fire and a firm bed would be an advantage but by no means did this spoil our stay. We will definitely book this cottage again.
This is a great little place to stay. It has a microwave (1000 Watts), It has a small Dishwasher, and everything you need to make your stay lovely. The beds are too soft, but the living room has a fold-away bed. The views are excellent.
The location is amazing, great walks straight from the doorstep, and the views from the balcony just stunning, had breakfast out there every morning.
We had an enjoyable holiday in this nicely appointed property with lovely views from the lounge and patio. The only reason I have not given a top mark is because we all felt the beds were too soft and bouncy.
Lake view cottage, which in fact is an apartment, was a lucky find and booked on the day we took over the property. We had intended to stay two weeks in Scotland however due to poor weather we decided to leave after a week and try our luck in the Lake District. After a futile search online I rang Keswick Cottages who we have used before to see if they had anything for 4 nights at short notice. As luck would have it, Lake View was available. Situated at Thorntwaite, just outside Keswick, it was a lovely apartment offering two comfortable bedrooms, one with ensuite, Excellent kitchen, fully equipped, Good family bathroom. Comfortable lounge/ diner.
A real treat was the balcony which overlooks Skiddaw, the lovely landscaped gardens and glimpses of Bassenthwaite lake. Breakfasts were enjoyed here every morning due to the lovely sunny weather the UK was enjoying, apart from north western Scotland !
This is situated in a very convenient position near to good fell walking and Keswick.
