Enjoy a stylish romantic experience in luxury. Located close to local amenities and a wealth of attractions, in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Escape with your loved one to this stylish bolthole close to the Lake District. Spend your days on woodland walks, challenging hikes or activities on the water, before heading back to this micro-lodge and soaking away in the bubbling hot tub.

A contemporary lodge that is deceivingly spacious. Head inside and find an open-plan living room that has been optimised to make best use of the area. Rustle up a quick bite to eat in the kitchenette which has a hob, microwave, and fridge, then cuddle up on the sofa in front of the Smart TV. When you are ready to sleep, pull down the foldaway double bed. Completing the lodge is a shower room. Outside boasts a decked area with sun loungers and a fantastic hot tub with cabana style shelter, offering ultimate privacy. There are walks available from here too and a pub opposite that serves up home cooked meals, should you wish to leave the cooking to someone else for the evening.

The popular town of Penrith (8 miles) is considered the shopping and social centre of the Eden District. With a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants you will find plenty to keep you busy. The historic city of Carlisle is 13.5 miles away, explore the 12th century castle, spectacular cathedral or one of the many museums. You will be just 13 miles from Pooley Bridge, sitting at the end of the superb Ullswater. Join the hop-on, hop-off Ullswater Steamers boats or try out some water sports on the lake. Alternatively, if you prefer hiking, try the superb Blencathra (20 miles) or the mountain Skiddaw, accessible via the market town of Keswick (24 miles).

Very VERY overpriced for a stay where it felt as if the lodge hadnt been cleaned properly. It would take minutes to wipe a brush around the property to get rid of spider webs etc. I understand staying in a field there are bound to be bugs but this can be maintained by cleanliness. The duvet was also marked and ripped. The jacuzzi felt very dirty onRead moree wipe off your finger and there was lots of dirt coming off from it. Again this would only take minutes after each stay to clean. Hide

Absolutely gorgeous and quiet location. Everyone was welcoming and friendly. We had a micro pod that was perfect for the 2 of us. Had everything we needed and an added bonus was the local pub being well within walking distance!

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.
