Hallgarth Barn, sleeping 8 people, is a conversion of the former barn at Hallgarth Farm providing characterful and comfortable holiday accommodation.
The property has a newly fitted kitchen and there is also a lovely galleried dining room, oak beams and a multi fuel burner. The barn's location has to be surely one of the most stunning in The Lake District. Set in an elevated position on the side of Whinlatter the panoramic views to Skiddaw, Bassenthwaite Lake and the Northern fells are breathtaking. The owner has recently refurbished the property's shutters as well as renovating the lovely garden.
Thornthwaite is ideally situated for exploring the surrounding mountains, rivers and lakes. Whether it be mountainous walks along the fells including Cat Bells, Causey Pike and Barrow, gentle strolls around Bassenthwaite and Derwent Water or paddling and picnicking in the Newlands Valley, all are easily reached on foot from the village. Rising above Thornthwaite is Whinlatter forest with it's numerous mountain bike trails and high ropes course (Go Ape). Braithwaite, just one mile away, has it's own village shop selling a comprehensive range of goods. There are three pubs in Braithwaite, The Royal Oak, The Middle Ruddings and The Coledale Inn, all serving good food and fine ales there is also a restaurant, The Ivy House.
