Wysall House is one of our NEW COTTAGES!
Wysall House is tucked away on a quiet lane in the village of Thornthwaite, surrounded by forest with views of Skiddaw just glimpsed from the landing window it is a peaceful escape from everyday life. With 3 bedrooms sleeping 5 people upstairs and a comfortable living room downstairs plus an additional snug there is plenty of room for a family or 2 couples travelling together to spend social time together whilst also having their own space. The enclosed front garden has chairs and a table for dining al fresco and being west facing enjoys the sun later in the day, perfect for relaxing with a glass of something after an enjoyable day out. Full of character and a little bit quirky Wysall House invites you to come in and make yourself at home, which along with a great location is always a good recipe for a great holiday atmosphere.
Thornthwaite is a small village benefitting from being close to the A66 for great transport links, but not too close! Wysall House is tucked away at the edge of the village right at the foot of Whinlatter Forest which stretches away for miles beyond offering some great walking and off road cycling either on the marked tracks from the visitor centre or quieter parts which are easily explored starting from your front door. Braithwaite is just 2 miles away with a choice of pubs and a shop or carry on a little further and visit the vibrant town of Keswick with shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants galore plus numerous picturesque walks, beautiful Derwentwater and a number of museums. Keswick is also home to the Theatre by the Lake offering a wide mix of shows and events throughout the year at a purpose built theatre.
Should you feel the need to explore further afield this is easy to achieve, The Georgian market town of Cockermouth is just 15 minutes drive away with a good range of independent shops and eateries plus a couple of supermarkets and Wordsworth's childhood home. Explore Bassenthwaite Lake and its surrounds, one of the lesser known lakes there are parts of the shore with public access and it is also the home of one of the pairs of Lake District ospreys. From April to September the Osprey viewpoint at Dodd Wood offers information on the birds and close up views, you can also visit the genteel Mirehouse and enjoy a stroll around the lovely gardens. Indulge yourself with a tour at the Lakes Distillery or have an afternoon in the spa at Armathwaite, all within 15 minutes drive. Beautiful Buttermere is just the other side of Newlands Pass and all the northern and western fells are yours for the walking. The Solway coast, Eden Valley, Carlisle and Hadrian's Wall country are also very accessible.
Wysall House is a lovely combination of a comfortable and charming house in a quiet location which is still within easy reach of everything going on in the area.
