The solid symmetry of Crosthwaite House commands views over the ruggedly romantic Lyth Valley, in an area of great natural beauty, with pleasant fell and woodland walks. The valley is situated within the southern boundary of the Lake District National Park and is famous for its damson orchards, white with blossom in the Spring, heavy with fruit in Autumn. Although within the Lakeland, the Lyth Valley is off the popular beaten track, yet only five miles from both Kendal and Bowness-on-Windermere, so that you're close enough to the centre of activities but can return to Crosthwaite to relax in comfort, away from it all. Your hosts at Crosthwaite House, Robin and Marnie Dawson, have been welcoming and taking care of guests in a relaxed and easy-going manner for many happy years, adding up to ensure that your stay will be a memorable one. After 40 years of providing dinners for guests, Marnie and Robin have decided to take life a little easier and stopped serving dinners but carrying on with their quality bed and breakfast, confident in the knowledge that we are surrounded by some of the best eating places in Southern Lakeland. Robin has great local knowledge and will provide you with information on walks, tours, producing maps, local weather conditions and even something to do on those damp days.
