About the property

Cottage in Thornthwaite, Keswick, Cumbria - Peaceful Village Location Close To Bassenthwaite Lake And With Lovely Mountain Views

A delightful cottage set in a peaceful Lake District village 3 miles from the lovely market town of Keswick. It is perfectly situated for exploring the Northern Lakes and fells and is ideal for walkers and cyclists.

The open-plan living/dining area has large south facing windows, oak beams and atmospheric down lighting with a gas-fired, coal-effect rustic stove fire. French windows open onto a veranda with views towards the fells. Both bedrooms have en-suite facilities and are furnished with Victorian pine. The pretty patio garden has a picnic table and 4 chairs with lovely views towards Skiddaw. A barbecue and sun loungers are available during the summer. The garage houses a washing machine and larder freezer and provides safe storage for bikes or water-sports’ equipment. Mountain and lake walks from the door. Children and dogs welcome.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely to come to Jasmine Cottage, cosy and warm. Ken and I have loved it here. We like it whatever the weather! Had a pheasant on the hedge, jays, doves, pigeons, little blue tits. We love the scenery and autumn colours, Skiddaw, the mist, the peace, everything. Could do with three weeks holiday here.

A lovely, cosy cottage ideal for couples or small family very close to Keswick.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, cosy cottage. Well equipped, nice and warm for a chilly February trip to the Lake District. Jasmine Cottage is ideal for 2 couples or a small family and a small cottage with 2 loos and showering facilities in both rooms was an added bonus. If you're using the kitchen remember to pack Tclothes as well as towels. For those not wanting to cook there is the Middle Ruddings pub a mile away in Braithwaite which allows dogs and the food is excellent.

Location is excellent, on my a few miles to Keswick and we'll sited for visits to many of the lakes.

If you've got a dog there are walks close to the cottage too.

Hope to make Jasmine Cottage a regular holiday in our annual calender. The owner Kate is very helpful and has made sure there is lots of informaction on the surrounding area.

Further Details:

There are so many interesting places to visit in Keswick and the surrounding area, we are sure you will find something to keep everyone in the family happy.

The Lake District is renowned for its walking opportunities and our visitors are always impressed by the spectacular scenery of the northern fells. Whether you prefer a 15 mile hike through the mountains or a gentle meander around one of our beautiful lakes, you certainly won't be disappointed. Using Jasmine Cottage in Thornthwaite as a base, you are spoilt for choice.

If you're not a walker, or you just fancy something different, there's always cycling, climbing, mountain biking, horse riding, quad biking, fishing, photography, bird watching, golf, sailing or canoeing. These activities are all available within a short distance of Thornthwaite. If they seem a little too energetic for your tastes, how about a trip to Keswick's Theatre by the Lake where the local repertory group are famous for their polished and entertaining productions?

If you've got a family to entertain, why not visit one of our public parks for a game of pitch and putt, crazy golf, tennis or bowls or, if it rains, you can forget about staying dry and go for a dip in Keswick's leisure pool, complete with sloping beach, 30m waterslide and wave machine.
