Stunning lodge in a peaceful setting, nestled in an elevated position, on the edge of a beautiful Lake District National Park with easy access to plenty of amazing destinations.

Nestled between the Lake District National Park and the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this well-presented lodge is ideal for families who love the great outdoors. Located in the peaceful Cumbrian village of Calthwaite, you have countryside walks on your doorstep and a local pub within a few hundred metres. The local area is perfect for outdoor activities such as walking, cycling, canoeing and climbing; after a busy day, you can return home to soak aching limbs in your hot tub under the stars.

One of five properties at this location, this charming lodge is within the Calthwaite Estate and occupies a tranquil rural position. Immaculately presented throughout, floor-to-ceiling windows and light tones create a light and airy space for you to relax in. The open-plan living area consists of a comfortable lounge, a well-equipped kitchen and ample dining seating for everyone. Down the hall, there are two lovely bedrooms, an en-suite and a shower room. During the summer months, you can enjoy al fresco dining on the terrace, whilst the hot tub is the perfect way to unwind whatever the weather. There’s also a paddock for horses, should you need it.

Despite the rural location, you’re only 8 miles from the bustling town of Penrith and 14 miles from the county capital of Carlisle, both of which have a range of shops, eateries and amenities to choose from. Just south of Penrith, you can access the northern lakes with Ullswater and its stunning scenery and famous steamers only 13.5 miles away. You can also visit the National Trust’s impressive Aira Force (19.5 miles) for a picturesque walk. Heading north, you can hop over the border to Scotland or enjoy the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

We had a lovely 2 week stay. The peacocks that come around to see you are adorable. It is lovely and quiet and had locked gates at the front. Very private, just the perfect place to recharge your batteries. Penrith is a lovely place to visit and supply you with discs so you can park for an hour free.

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.
