Thornthwaite Village rests between Thornthwaite Forest and Bassenthwaite Lake. This is a quiet and relaxing village just 5 minutes from the centre of Keswick, an excellent base for visiting the North Lakes, and only a half hour's drive from South Lakeland or the Cumbrian coast, or an hour away from Carlisle and Hadrian's Wall.
This is a very popular area for ornithologists, with a wide variety of bird life, a hide for viewing water fowl beside Bassenthwaite Lake and the added bonus of Ospreys nesting just a short distance away.
