Escape on the perfect romantic getaway for two at this superb pod set in a stylish complex of properties in the village of Calthwaite. Sleeping two people in one bedroom, it’s the ideal romantic retreat for a couple that want to explore the northern fringes of the Lake District National Park. Spend your days hiking at Lowther Castle or kayaking on Ullswater, and your evenings enjoying a drink at the local pub or taking a well-deserved dip in the lodge’s private hot tub.

Step inside this stylish pod and you’ll find a cleverly planned space that’s perfect for two. The main area has been tastefully designed to make the most of the space on offer. Rustle up a romantic meal for two in the kitchenette and then head out to the deck to dine alfresco. After dinner, crack open a bottle of wine and take a dip in the private hot tub, or head indoors to snuggle up on the sofa in front of the TV. When the day is done, the sofa transforms into a comfortable double bed. In the morning, treat yourself to a freshly-brewed coffee on the deck’s cabana.

Head into Carlisle (13.5 miles) for a great day out. Take a stroll around the 11th-century castle, check out the fine 14th-century stained glass windows at Carlisle Cathedral, or buy the ingredients for your dinner at Carlisle Market Hall - one of the few covered Victorian Markets left in England. Alternatively, head to Little Salkeld (11 miles) to see Long Med and Her Daughters – one of the finest stone circles in the north of England. Take a trip into Penrith (8 miles) and take part in an adrenaline-fuelled canyoning or rappelling tour.

A lovely couple of nights spent at the Swallows Retreat. Property is very well laid out with a lot of thought put into the space in the cabin. Applicances provided were generous, alongside towels for use in the shower/hot tub. Very friendly staff, and a few surprise visits from the peacocks on the grounds made it that little bit extra special! DistRead moreance-wise - it's in ideal travelling distance to the likes of Keswick and others. Hide

Lovely area, Globe inn was fantastic so were the staff. The cabin we had needs a good overhaul to fix some issues arising from damp and cleanliness.

Cottage was very cosy & snug. All the equipment worked perfectly and the Hot Tub was always the right temperature. The heating was perfect warmed up very quickly when we felt cold first thing of a morning or of an evening
