Nestled in the hillside, this magnificent building has the most spectacular views across the valley towards the mighty Skiddaw range, from its elevated location on the edge of Thornthwaite village. Ladstock Hall was a very grand country house hotel, a renowned venue for weddings, it has now been converted into several apartments and cottages, the standard of which is excellent. No.5 is a split level apartment furnished and equipped throughout to appeal to the most discerning guests. Thornthwaite lies three miles to the West of Keswick at the foot of Whinlatter and close to Bassenthwaite lake. This area is great for mountain biking in Whinlatter forest, walking on the surrounding fells and sailing or fishing on the lake. There is a bridle way immediately behind Ladstock Hall where you can walk to Braithwaite, a little over half a mile, which has a village shop, restaurant and two pubs each serving good food and real ale.
