Luxurious micro-lodge perfect for a cosy romantic retreat. Escape to the country and explore the fantastic walking routes directly from the property with plenty to choose from.

Escape on the perfect romantic getaway for two at this superb micro-lodge 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 micro-lodge 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.

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.
