Arnside is situated on the southernmost tip of the Lake District in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where low limestone hills, marshy plains and deciduous woodlands characterise the surrounding land. This former fishing port has retained many of the features from its past. The beautiful pier and port areas of the village offer stunning views across the Kent Estuary as well as providing an enduring reminder of Arnside's illustrious history. Within easy touring distance are the Lake District and Lune Valley, the Yorkshire Dales and the Forest of Bowland, a great base for exploring this wonderful area.

Reviews for Thornfield
The house was enormous with some unusual features e.g.the top play room, which the children really enjoyed and the "underground" rooms which were great for our part of the family with a dog. The gardens were so well-kept without being formal and the different levels made it interesting. Our host was easily accessible by phone and very helpful.
