About Thrang

A rural hideaway in Duddon Valley, this farmhouse is a peaceful retreat amongst fells and streams.

Thrang has been enjoyed as a holiday home since the 1950s and although its interiors have been updated, the notion of it being a rural hideaway has remained the same. You’ll be tucked away amongst the fells and streams of the Duddon Valley, where access to the house is through working farmland and across a wooden footbridge. This rustic farmhouse is very remote and the most peaceful of places. Inside reveals a classic farmhouse interior where many original features remain, from the old cottage range and slate floors to the low beamed ceilings and dark wooden floorboards.

The Duddon Valley offers local low level walking straight from your doorstep. If you’re up for a challenge you’ll not be far from the higher fells of Scafell and Scafell Pike. There are also opportunities for pony trekking, fishing and cycling in the local area. 

Further afield in the Lake District, the majestic countryside of Tarn Hows and Coniston are a 40-minute drive away. Walk around the mountain lake and watch the mountain scenery unfold. Tarn Hows is located in the low level hills between the villages of Coniston and Hawkshead and is ideal for a walk or cycle trip from either.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
