THE GROUNDS

THORNEY HOW IS SURROUNDED BY TWO
AND A QUARTER ACRES OF UNSPOILT
PRIVATE AND SECLUDED GROUNDS

Thorney How is surrounded by two and a quarter acres of unspoilt, private and secluded grounds providing a relaxing setting for you to enjoy at the end of your day out, or somewhere to spend a few hours sharing a drink and something to eat with friends. Outdoor seating is available for your use.

In 2014 we introduced rare breed sheep alongside our free range hens, ducks and three cats. You will also occasionally find red and roe deer, red squirrels, badgers, hedgehogs, frogs and toads, owls, buzzards, woodpeckers and tree creepers to name just a few wild animals and birds.

The grounds also include our own private garden space where we are reinstating some elements of a kitchen garden with raised beds, polytunnel and orchard with a range of fruit trees. The produce grown supplies the household with some of its own vegetables, fruit, herbs and free range eggs from our hens and ducks.

You will find meals served in the restaurant featuring fresh grown items depending on what’s available.

Our woodland areas feature a wide range of traditional trees and wild flowers. The woodland is managed by ourselves and provides logs to be used in our wood burning stoves.

Please feel free to spend time exploring and enjoying the grounds and spotting the various wildlife that finds it’s way into the grounds. We ask that you to observe the private areas and to take care when being close to any of the animals.

Known historical links with Grasmere’s most famous resident, William Wordsworth, and his associates have been found with reference to Thorney How and the grounds in their writing.

Please note that we do not allow open fires or BBQ’s within the grounds.
