Partly refurbished in early 2020, Wysall House is tucked away on a quiet lane in the village of Thornthwaite. Surrounded by forest with glimpses of Skiddaw, 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 to spend time together whilst also having their own space. The enclosed, west facing front garden has chairs and a table from where you can enjoy the sun later in the day. Full of character and a little bit quirky, Wysall House invites you to come in and make yourself at home.
Thornthwaite is a small village that is close - but not too close! - to the A66 and so benefits from great transport links. Wysall House is tucked away at the edge of the village right at the foot of Whinlatter Forest, which stretches for miles and offers some great walking and off-road cycling. Braithwaite is just two miles away with a choice of pubs and a shop. Otherwise, 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 couple 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, the Georgian market town of Cockermouth is just a 15-minute drive away with a good range of independent shops and eateries plus a couple of supermarkets and Wordsworth's childhood home. Explore Bassenthwaite Lake, one of the lesser known lakes and home to one of the pairs of Lake District ospreys, indulge yourself with a tour at the Lakes Distillery, or have an afternoon in the spa at Armathwaite. 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.
