This is a small family run campsite , close to A66 by Bassenthwaite Lake., 4 miles from Keswick.
Thornthwaite is a few minutes walk from Whinlatter Forest, with its many mountain bike trails and GO APE. The spectacular ridge walk, the Coledale Round, is up Grisedale Pike, Hopegill Head, Grasmoor, Eel Crag, Sail, & Causey Pike in the beautiful Newlands Valley – walkable from the campsite
The nearest pub is Middle Ruddings , less than ½ mile away. The Royal Oak and Coledale Inn in Braithwaite are 10 minutes walk away.
The Ospreys Unring ( the male) and KL (the female) should still be around on their nest at the beginning of August. There are currently 3 eggs on the nest so by the HMC meet there will hopefully be 2 or 3 young ospreys still on the nest, being brought fish by their parents. The young ospreys tend to fledge about the end of August and fly off to West Africa for the winter. There is a viewpoint from Dodd wood on the side of Bassenthwaite Lake and a live webcam from Whinlatter Forest visitor centre.
