Situated in a delightfully secluded location on a working farm, this relaxing lodge provides airy and inviting holiday accommodation for up to four guests. Making a wonderful retreat for couples and families seeking a tranquil rural retreat, this stylish, light-filled cabin offers stunning rural views. The cabin is ideally positioned for walkers, climbers and nature lovers discovering the northernmost part of the Lake District National Park, with the beautiful Solway Coast a little way to the west.

A few steps lead up into this bright, friendly lodge. The refreshing and spacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner makes a fantastic living space for you all to unwind in. Wall-to-wall windows offer glorious views, and the lounge features plenty of seating, a cosy wood burner and a TV/DVD, making it a great spot for settling back at the end of a wonderful day. Set by the windows, the pretty farmhouse-style dining table is perfect for serving up a favourite family meal which you can rustle up in the stylishly arranged kitchen. There are two fresh, cosy and relaxing bedrooms, each with floor-to-ceiling windows: a charming twin room and an en-suite king-size room. There’s also a handy family bathroom. French doors open out from the living area and onto a raised decked space with outdoor furniture providing a delightful spot for dining alfresco, admiring the pretty views and meeting some of the local sheep.

We were very impressed how everything was what we needed for a restful week, all mod cons. Maybe only one thing a board with the name of the cottages at the end of the lane as we ended up at other farms.

The Quiet Owl is a lovely, tranquil retreat, high up on the Cumbrian Fells with stunning views all around. I loved having the ewes and their little lambs as my neighbours and enjoyed walking across the fields to Caldbeck village. The accommodation is warm and cosy and had everything I needed for a comfortable stay.

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.
