Thorphinsty Hall Cottage Guest Reviews


Really enjoyed our stay at Thorphinsty Hall Cottage, beautiful location, felt really remote and away from everything. The cottage is fantastic - loads of room, great for the kids and the living room was perfect place to relax at the end of the day. It's in a handy location, close enough to drive and explore the Lakes. Would definitely recommend this place - to relax and get away from it all it's perfect. 
James - November 2017

We have just had a fabulous weekend at Thorphinsty Hall Cottage.  The cottage was beautiful, very well equipped and immaculately clean. This is the third cottage we have stayed in with your company in the last 15 months and we found all the cottages have been to the very highest standard. Many thanks, we will return again next year.
Brenda Wilson November 2017

Beautiful house great location, easy to get out to everything. Nice and warm, peaceful and tranquil only thing I would change is the varnished floor, strobe outside lights and 25 gb of internet. But we loved the cottage.
Taylor family

Hi Mr Taylor , I am so pleased you enjoyed the cottage and thank you for your comments. Just to let you know the outside light had become faulty due to the weather but is fixed and we have unlimited broadband now. I hope that will encourage you to stay with us again,Kathryn

A wonderful week of muddy walks , cosy nights in front of the log burner and spending good times with good friends. We had excellent meals with great service at the Black Labrador in Underbarrow and the Eagles head in Satterthwaite. Cartmel is lovely and lunch at L'Enclume was an astonishing theatrical experience. Thank you for letting us stay in such a gorgeous home xx
The Duffs, the Taylors and the Yorkies - Oct 2017

Kathryn , thank you. The house is beautiful and spotlessly clean, a credit to you all. The cake was delicious and I am going to try and emulate it at home, 
Brenda - Oct 2017

This beautiful cottage is a splendid place for rest and relaxation - so peaceful. We had to make the most of the log burner , it was well worth it. Many thanks for the cake and bubbles. We had a couple of minor technical issues which were efficiently dealt with (on a Saturday!) by the maintenance team.
Sept 2017

The cottage is stunningly beautiful, attention to detail is superb. We loved everyting about it. Lovely local walks and there is plenty to do in the surrounding area, even is you just sit back and enjoy the scenery.
I can recommentd the Mason's arms as one of the best Sunday lunches I have ever had and the royal oak in Cartmel for fabulous steak. Higginsons butchers in Grange over sands is outstanding. Loved our week here and would love to stay again , probably the best cottage we have ever stayed in.
Thank you for the welcome gifts xx
Sue and Owen - Sept 2017

We will be back soon.

Jasmine Steel - August 2017

We all enjoyed our stay in this lovely house, the gardens and surrounding countryside are beautiful. We hope to retune to the area again! Thank you.

Reluctant to leave such a lovely home in a beautiful location – so peaceful, yet so much to keep us occupied! We loved the Masons Arms at Strawberrybank and the Punch Bowl at Crosthwaite, great atmosphere and excellent food. Visits to Blackwell house at Bowness and Ruskins house at Brantwood, Coniston, were very enjoyable – and both have superb cafes! Fleeced the bookies at Cartmel Races, and on a similar subject, one of our party enjoyed pony trekking at Witherslack Farm! Many thanks to Katharine, and the rest of the team. Hope to be back very soon! 

A fantastic cottage in a fabulous location, lovely to relax and get away from it all. The cottage has everything we needed, ideal for us as a family. Thank you.

Our stay as a family at thorphinsty cottage was very enjoyable, the accommodation was very comfortable and we had everything we needed.  The property is set in a wonderful location and we would definitely like to return at some point in the future as it is one of the best cottages we have stayed in. The owners housekeeping were fantastic and very welcoming and helpful and it was wonderful to have the opportunity to stay in this beautiful cottage. Thank you

What a great time we have had. The cottage provided everything for two families. well equipped and beautifully appointed to give a welcoming and luxurious home for the week. we found good butchers and BBQ'd almost every night. Superb couple of days at haverigg beach, great walk over the top to Stavely with the minature railway and the walk to Orrest head above Windermere, well worth it for the gorgeous views. Kathryn was very helpful during our stay and went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. A brilliant stay, thank you x
June 2017

Beautiful house , gardens and location. Very peaceful and relaxing, one of our favourite cottages. Weather has been mixed (it is the lakes) but does not matter as it is as wonderful place  to be. We will be back to the cottage for sure! Kathryn was very helpful and baked an amazing cake. Thank you from us both.
June 2017

We came back!! A window of opportunity occured which led us back to Thorphinsty. Why ? Everything has been said already by the many reviewers including us in 2015. The welcome is so warm , the location is so peaceful and the facilities are second to none. Even storm Doris seemed to have avoided the place. Many thanks to Kathryn and the Rowleys
Team Edwards

THORPHINSTY HALL COTTAGE is everything that anyone could possible want from accommodation in the Lake District. The rooms lounge is cosy, the bedrooms are spacious, the kitchen is well equipped. We have stayed at Thorphinsty Hall Cottage before and we were impressed at the fact that the owners keep improving the experience. A case in point is the much improved wifi available. The welcome is fabulous, from the drink and cake that greets us as we enter the accommodation, to the contact with the housekeeper who ensures we have everything we need.
We would gladly return in the future if the fates allow. Many thanks!

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to visit your home.
We have been visiting the Lakes for over 20 years renting cottages from several companies and staying at Thorphinsty Cottage has been certainly the best. The location is peaceful and secluded. It is full of home comforts and special touches. Kathryn is so helpful and we can't thank you enough for having the cottage so clean and cosy. It even smelt like home...Thank you for the welcome cake and bottle of Prosecco, so thoughtful.We shall certainly be returning in the near future.

We have stayed in cottages in the lakes for about 15 years all have been lovely, but this one has been the best so far, stunning! We fell in love with the it on Lakeland Cottage Company's website and booked immediately. 

Great road and mountain bike rides and great walks, plus our favourite pub The Masons Arms and Royal Oak at Lindale. We don't want to leave and we will be back!

Thank you to Kathryn for the home made cake, Prosecco and warm welcome.

A wonderful holiday enjoyed by the family in a beautiful property tucked away in a magical location on Cartmel Fell.  With easy access to Lake Windermere the property is ideally located to get out and explore the heart of the lake district safe in the knowledge that at the end of your day out you have the rustic charm of the cottage to return to.  The property is fully equipped allowing the adults to relax and dine in comfort while the kids are entertained playing pool or on the XBox in the 3rd floor den.  This property is an absolute must for any family looking for a base to explore the Lake District.

Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful cottage, we have had the best Christmas! Beautiful setting, great views and a bit of peace and quite!
Great local pubs visited almost everyday, most of all quality family time. Thank you to Kathryn for checking on us. We will definitely be returning.

Thanks for creating a wonderful retreat for people to enjoy.

The welcome cake was fantastic and the cottage was perfect, home from home. 

A wonderful house in a wonderful place.

We have just returned from a wonderful week staying at Thorphinsty Hall Cottage, Cartmel Fell. The property was fabulous: really comfortable and cosy and finished to a very high standard. This is the second property we have rented through the Lakeland Cottage Company and we have been really impressed both times - both properties are definitely in the "luxury" category (previously we stayed at Beehive Barn, Caldbeck). The company itself  is excellent also, with the booking, payment and return of deposit being very efficient indeed. Thanks for another great stay!

We all had a wonderful stay here. The weather was lovely for us all week! Best wishes from us all.

Thank you for creating such a wonderful retreat for people to enjoy. The welcome cake was fantastic and the cottage was perfect, home from home!

Pefect, perfect, perfect! Beautiful weather, great shopping and fun at the Masons Arms! Fabulous girlie break, we don't want to leave!

We have had a lovely time and the weather has been wonderful, very comfortable, cosy cottage. Thank you Kathryn for all your help and tips on where to go to get the best from our two weeks.

What a wonderful treat to spend time in this beautiful cottage with our two daughters and partners! The place is amazing!

Lovely and cosy, such a lot of character, a truly memorable experience for us all. We have done some wonderful walking too. 
Thank you so much for letting us share your lovely home. Thank you also to Kathryn for all the help and advice.

Left work on Friday afternoon and arived at 8:30pm to cake, wine and a wonderful location! We have stayed in the Lake District many times at many locations, but this is No1! Everything you need is here, the house contains so many welcome refinements (loved the pool table and X-Box!) However, it was the peaceful nature of the location that was much appreciated. We hope to stay again sooner rather than later - Many Thanks!
