Luxury styled pod, perfect for a romantic escape with private hot tub and stunning fell views.

A gorgeous pod surrounded by fells just 4 miles from Keswick, this property is in one of the most popular destinations for walkers and trail runners in the Lake District National Park. The dog-friendly pod features an open-plan living area, a private hot tub with views of Blencathra and easy access to a range of vibrant communities and activities. It is perfect for active couples seeking a romantic getaway.

The beautifully furnished pod is situated close to two others on a working sheep farm surrounded by the open countryside. Its usual shape will make an immediate first impression, and there is plenty to absorb once you enter its bright pine interior. Entering the pod via a covered decked area, there is an impressive amount of tech in the cosy open-plan living area, with room for everything from curling up and watching new documentaries to romantic meals while the dog snoozes at your side. A double bed with views of the fells sits at the heart of the living area and is the perfect excuse for an early night. The kitchen area is only a few steps away, as is the pod’s shower room – the go-to for recharging after a long day exploring the area. Your tired limbs will thank you for a soak in the hot tub at the side of the pod, with the views of Blencathra just as beautiful in spring as in autumn.

The area is a walkers’ paradise, with plenty of attractions in the immediate area. Threlkeld village (1 mile) is home to pubs and various sporting grounds, while Keswick (4 miles) is a haven for those with a passion for the outdoors. The impressive Derwentwater (12 miles) is a must for anyone interested in water sports.

It had everything: large hot tub; comfy bed; powerful shower; plenty of space to cook and relax; easy access; ideal location and lovely little touches including the welcome goodiesRead more!

We had a lovely stay at the cottage. The hot tub is very private and the location is perfect. The view is also absolutely stunning and everything was clean. The only negative thing was the mattress and sadly that's quite a big factor. As soon as we walked in, we could tell it had a dent in the middle, it needs replacing. We got back pain from sleepRead moreing on it for 4 nights and for the price of the cottage this was rather disappointing. However, once the mattress is replaced the place is perfect! Hide
