I would like to invite you to Thorneyfield Guest House, a charming Victorian period property set in the heart of Ambleside and the beautiful English Lake District. Thorneyfield is ideally placed for walking, climbing, water sports, touring and other less arduous activities such as spending time in the many local shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs as well as the three local cinemas!

All of our rooms are equipped with TV and DVD players and CD/radio alarms. We also have a good selection of books and DVDs for those quiet nights when you just want to put your feet up.

For breakfast we have a comprehensive menu of different options to suit your taste. To start we offer a choice of fruit juices, cereals, fresh fruit and yoghurts..

To follow we serve our full Cumberland breakfast cooked on our traditional Aga for that extra taste, choices for people wanting a lighter option or a continental breakfast.

If you aren't sure how to find us, just look out for the property with the purple front, you can't miss us!

    Plan route to Thorneyfield Guest House using Google mapsPlan route using Google maps

    Map reference: NY 375043  Lat: 54.43027 Long: -2.96492

    From the south leave the M6 at junction 36 and follow the A590/A591 following signs for Kendal and then Windermere. Keeping straight on this road, signs for Ambleside will appear as you go approach Windermere and Ambleside is approximately 5 miles from Windermere.

    Coming in to the village you come to set a set of traffic lights where you can turn left and follow the road round until you come in to Ambleside keeping to the left hand side of the road. If you miss this turn don't worry as the one-way system will guide you round to the same road. As you go past the White Platts recreation ground to your left, you will then see the Gables followed just after that by The Thorneyfield. Just keep your eyes out for the purple property!

    From the north, you can leave at junction 40 on the M6 following the A66 to Keswick where you will join the A591 via Grasmere to Ambleside.

    By train, the nearest mainline railway station is Oxenholme, where you can get a connection to Windermere and a bus or taxi from there to The Thorneyfield.
