Quiet, rural location with fabulous views across Bassenthwaite, while there are lots of amenities close by. Perfect location to either relax and unwind or explore.

Get away from it all in this idyllic hideaway in the northern Lake District. The property sleeps two guests (with a further two accommodated on a sofa bed) and suits both couples and small families. The lodge overlooks Bassenthwaite, and from the property, you can enjoy walks along its western shore or take a tour of The Lakes Distillery (1.5 miles).

The elegant lodge has a studio-style layout, with an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner/sleeping area. The property has been decorated in a contemporary style, with bespoke furniture and exceptional attention. As you enter the pod, your eyes will be drawn to the magnificent, four-poster bed – the perfect place to wake up after a good night’s rest. There is also a sofa bed, accommodating a further two guests if required. At the far end of the room is a chic kitchen area, as well as a breakfast bar for sharing mealtimes together. At the end of the day, relax on the comfortable sofa to watch the Smart TV or admire the jaw-dropping view of the surrounding mountains. A stylish shower room completes the accommodation. Outside, unwind on the raised deck with a glass of wine, watching the local wildlife and taking in your peaceful surroundings.

You’ll be close to the bustling towns of Cockermouth (8 miles) and Keswick (7.5 miles), both of which have a great range of restaurants, cafes, and independent shops to explore. Keswick is also regarded as the hub for outdoor adventure, and you’ll find many companies offering all manner of activities, from ghyll scrambling to paddleboarding. The area is awash with walking tracks and trails and experienced climbers can take on the mighty peaks of Blencathra and Skiddaw. For those seeking a gentler climb, Catbells (12 miles) is perfect and still offers panoramic views across the Lake District.

Very well equipped cabin in a fantastic setting. You are right in nature and have beautiful scenery. As others have said the views are stunning! Inside the cabin its got everything you need in the kitchen so you dont need to take all your own equipment. , it was very clean throughout and the bed is comfy. It is a good base for walks and other sightRead more seeing. The nearest supermarket is about 10/15 mins away so bare that in mind. Hide

Amazing lodge with everything you could possibly need already included, very clean. The pictures really do not do it justice, the views are to die for and we will be returning when were next in the lakes. We also booked our wedding venue while in the lakes so will be recommending the accommodation to our guests.

The lodge was beautiful, however the management company that looks after this property really let it down. Very poor communication from them. My daughter was very ill with tonsillitis while we were here & when I contacted the management company to ask where I could find additional toilet roll I was met with a very curt response. No response to any Read morefurther messages were received and I have later found out that the kindle that I left behind was donated to charity without informing me! Hide

Yew tree cottage is brilliant. Very nicely furnished and great facilities. Tranquil location with fantastic uninteruped views of the hill sides. Location is great, 15 mins away from Keswick and Cockermouth. The lakes wildlife reserve is less than a mile away and was a great day out. Lots to do in the lake district and this place is a great base. LoRead morevely stay and will be our first choice when we return again for a break. Was myself, my wife and 14month old. Hide
