If we think of Winder Hall as Lorton Vale's gregarious Lord of the Manor, then The Lodge at Winder Hall rather represents the subdued and sagacious side of the family. Built in service to the Jacobean Winder Hall located at the end of the private drive, The Lodge was later built in service to the grand manor house.
The two-bedroom bungalow is ideal for young children and less-abled family members. Nestled in beautiful Lorton Vale, it sleeps up to four people and has a fully enclosed garden, private parking and views of the Lake District's western fells. The Lodge's garden extends from the side to the rear of the cottage and, beyond its boundaries lies a pasture owned by Winder Hall in which guests are welcome to walk for around half a mile along the River Cocker.
Lorton is a peaceful village in a wonderful corner of the UNESCO Lake District National Park. It could scarcely be better placed to enjoy everything that the area has to offer. The small village lies just four miles from Crummock and Loweswater, two of the most picturesque lakes in the area. It is also four miles from Wordsworth’s birthplace, the charming Georgian town of Cockermouth and eight miles from Cumbria’s adventure capital, Keswick. The village itself is a tranquil gem with an excellent local pub just 100m away from the driveway, a much treasured village shop and tons of walks and cycle rides from the doorstep. Whinlatter Forest Park is just up the road with a popular café, a wealth of mountain bike tracks, a Gruffalo trail and a Go Ape high ropes course. You never know, you could find yourself whooping along a zip wire high up in the forest canopy just ten minutes from your door. It really is an ideal area for a large group with different interests.
The Lodge (Winder Hall) can be booked together with Winder Hall, which sleeps 14/16.
