Local Information and Amenities 
The hillside village of Thornthwaite enjoys extensive views over Bassenthwaite Lake and the Skiddaw Range beyond. The village stands at the foot of Seat How and the woods of Whinlatter, through which there are extensive walks and cycle routes. There is an attractive little church, St Mary's, dating from the 18th century.

North of the village is Barf Fell where the famous white rock (the Bishop of Barf) indicates the culmination of a donkey riding wager which led to the demise of both donkey and rider.

There are nearby amenities in Braithwaite including shops, inns and primary school. More comprehensive facilities are located in Keswick (three miles to the south) including a range of shops, hotels, restaurants, pubs and other tourist related businesses and facilities, together with the renowned Theatre by the Lake and the highly rated Keswick School.
