Situated on the edge of the market town of Keswick, Lakeland fells surround this log cabin and there are fabulous walks from your door as well as some great dog-friendly pubs.

Pack your loved one and dog for a romantic holiday in Cumbria. You’ll be staying in a charming log cabin, just outside Keswick, a bustling town with an excellent market in the Lake District. Spend evenings relaxing and enjoying the quiet, then climb a mountain, paddle in a lake or see incredible wildlife.

You’ll start in a wood-panelled lounge/diner with a foldaway table for additional space. This room is a nice spot to relax and spend quality time with your partner whilst your dog curls up in her bed, and you can light the wood burner-effect electric fire to make everything snuggly. The galley-style kitchen is just next door, the ideal size for two people. There are plenty of innovative appliances which make cooking easy and ensure you have everything you need for food prep. Continue to the double bedroom, a comfortable place where you’re sure to get plenty of rest. The final room is an en-suite shower room with a WC. The lodge has a nice veranda with a table, so you can take a book or a drink outside and enjoy the peace.

The nearest town is Keswick, 1 mile away, where you’ll find a weekly craft market. There are regular shops and amenities for anything you might need, and the best part is Derwentwater, the nearby lake. Check out walking routes and see if you can hike to Ashness Bridge (3.5 miles from the property). It’s an old stone bridge, originally used by pack horses. Now, you can get a great view of the lake. You’ll also be 21.5 miles from Providence Bay Beach in Whitehaven.

  • 1 bedroom – double
  • 1 en-suite bathroom with shower over the bath and a WC
  • Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, dishwasher and washer/dryer
  • Smart TV in the lounge
  • Small veranda with garden furniture
  • Private parking for 1 car to the side of the lodge
  • Pubs, shops and restaurants within 0.5 miles
  • Arrival: 15:00 onwards
  • Departure: before 10:00, unless otherwise stated in your arrival details
  • 1 dog allowed. Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week
  • There is an Accidental Damage Deposit of £150 when booking at this property, however this may be waived for £20. We’ll provide more details about this when booking your holiday.

We had a fabulous week at Bracken Lodge. The lodge was very clean and well equipped and only a 20 minute walk into Keswick via Fitz Park. We can highly recommend the Pheasant Inn for an evening meal but it might be an idea to book as it can get busy, the Square Orange in Keswick is also nice but small and you are unable to book.

I could not recommend this lodge more. It is in a perfect, peaceful location, and only a short walk through Fitz Park takes you into the centre of Keswick. You also walk past a lovely country pub (dog friendly) called the Pheasant, a nice stop for food on your way back to the lodge. The lodge itself has all you need, supplied by the lovely owners.

The host responded quickly to queries and the property was easy to find and fairly close to Keswick albeit the cottage is right beside a busy roundabout. The cottage itself is quite rustic but serviceable and reasonably comfortable (although it gets very hot inside on even a moderately warm day).
