Located in the heart of the Lyth Valley in a small hamlet north of the picturesque village of Crosthwaite, Starnthwaite Ghyll is a prestigious conversion and development built in 1987, nestling within the beautiful Gilpin Valley on the River Gilpin, just half a mile from the centre of Crosthwaite village. Crosthwaite will appeal to all ages thanks to its lively community that is centred around the active village hall and local primary school, rated outstanding by Ofsted. Commonly known as 'The Damson Valley', Crosthwaite is situated within The Lake District National Park and is approximately 5 miles from Bowness and, in the other direction Kendal, with easy access to the M6, ideal for commuters looking for a more laid back and peaceful lifestyle. There is an abundance of walks to be enjoyed right from your doorstep and with the Lakeland Hills close by you are certainly spoilt for choice. Locally, there is a good selection of quality pubs including the popular Punch Bowl which includes a post office three times a week and there is a weekly local Fair trade shop and homemade cakes in the village hall.
