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.

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.
