Recently renovated lodge overlooking 18-acre woodland estate in an elevated position in the heart of the Lake District

Situated among beautiful woodlands on a private estate, this welcoming lodge makes a lovely getaway for four guests. Perfect for couples seeking a secluded retreat or for families discovering the Langdale Valley, this pretty cabin is a great base for making the most of a stunning part of the Lake District.

Delightful log cabin set high up in the woods although views are somewhat inhibited because of the trees didn't alter the fact that it is in a superb location with just birdsong to listen to.

Great location for a very peaceful week away. The cabin is very well laid out and comfortable. Free WiFi, BIG screen TVs in the lounge and tvs in each bedroom, easy to use appliances and a view out through the trees to the hills. We thoroughly enjoyed staying here and definitely plan to return. Just perfect.

The cabin was very spacious & comfortable, a lovely place to relax. The best cabin of the three we have stayed in at Neum Crag. Disappointed that no bird feeder outside so made one from a branch. We had little cleaning to do on arrival, spots in the bathroom & the hob was not cleaned. We also had to dust where the DVD player was. Neum Crag is a beaRead moreutiful setting. Walking is literally from your door. Many fine places for food nearby & in Ambleside (2 miles). Overall, great and will book again Hide

Despite cold weather caused by storm Arwen, this lovely and cosy cabin was exactly what we needed for a week in the lakes. 10-15 minutes out of Ambleside, a nice private location, we very much enjoyed our stay!

We spent a very enjoyable week in this comfortable and well equipped chalet, which is set in a quiet location high amongst the trees on this private estate of similar lodges. The site is in a very central area of the Lakes with easy access to many of the well known tourist centres such as Grasmere, Ambleside and Windermere.

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.

It could take you five lifetimes to visit each of the places mentioned here; a good way to see more of the Lake District National Park is stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages. Our range of holiday properties in the Lake District and Cumbria gives you the perfect place to stay in the north west countryside or on the coast. Our self-catering cottages in the Lake District offer lovely holiday accommodation to suit all your needs, from cottages to rent for a romantic getaway to larger properties for the whole family – we even have dog-friendly holiday homes across the Lake District too. Take a look at our full collection of self-catering cottages and begin to plan your holiday.
