• About Thwaite Bridge House

    Located in the heart of the peaceful Rusland Valley with a farmhouse style kitchen, conservatory and a beautiful lawned garden.

    Ground Floor:
    Thwaite Bridge House has oil fired central heating, under floor heating downstairs and briefly comprises:
    Farmhouse Kitchen: With flagged floor, an excellent range of units and facilities to include a electric oven, gas hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, i-Pod player and dishwasher.
    Lounge: With original oak panelled walls and comfortable seating for eight with a wood burning stove (fuel available locally), TV, DVD and Sky Freesat.
    Study/Reading room: With comfy seating and desk area from where you can access broadband internet, or play the piano.
    Utility/Cloakroom: With washing machine, tumble dryer, hand basin and WC. This room is great for storing extra food items and walking gear.
    Conservatory: With comfy seating from where to gaze across the gardens and watch the sunset.

    First Floor:
    All rooms on the first floor are of original oak, reached via the original oak pinned staircase, furnished with rugs for the comfort of guests.
    Master suite: With double bed, ipod player and large en-suite bathroom and dressing room with bath, separate walk in shower, hand basin and WC.
    Bedroom 2: With double bed and vanity unit.
    Bedroom 3: With twin beds and a traditional wash stand and feature fireplace.
    Bedroom 4: With full size bunk beds, ideal for the kids.
    Bathroom: With shower over a corner bath, hand basin, WC and the most unusual toilet roll holder you’ve ever seen!

    All oil, electric and bed linen provided. Fuel for fire available locally. Travel cot and high chair available. Wi-Fi available all over the house.

    Large lawned gardens with furniture provided. Ample parking for up to three cars. 

    Traditional Lakeland Farmhouses don’t come much prettier than this and Thwaite Bridge House would look perfectly at home on the front of a traditional box of Lakeland fudge or biscuits.  Located in the Rusland Valley, Thwaite Bridge House is a mere 5 miles from Newby Bridge and only 5 miles from Hawkshead so is ideally situated for exploring this delightful part of the Southern Lakes.  Rusland and surrounding villages are very quiet with little traffic although popular with walkers and cyclists.  The busier resorts can be reached within minutes by car or to avoid the queues, you could take one of the world famous steamers from Lakeside, only a short way from the cottage, to Bowness Bay or Ambleside and do your own bit for the environment too.
    From the moment you get a glimpse of the house from the bridge just along the narrow country lane, your eyes are drawn to the white washed, double fronted farmhouse that not only displays a wealth of character and historical features but surely must hold many tales of a bygone era. Original beams are everywhere and the flagged floors on the ground floor, some dressed with carpet, must be centuries old.  The oak panelling and stairs are in excellent condition and although this is a traditional cottage, 21st century conveniences have been added, such as underfloor heating and modern kitchen, to ensure guests’ comfort.

    A comfortable, clean, warm base perfect for a family get together. The quirky farmhouse was well equipped and catered for all our needs (8 adults and a dog) We managed a couple of Wainwright walks and explored Grizedale Forest locally. Hope to return for another visit in the future.

    Had a lovely week here, comfortable, cosy, well equipped and very clean. Loved the log burner in the lounge and the conservatory was lovely also. Lucky enough to have some nice weather in September. Beautiful walks close by for us and our dog. A group of us stayed and all loved the farmhouse old worldy charm of the place, really quiet and just what we needed. Would stay again definitely
