I did love it but wish it were a bit more comfortable. Hated the hammock so piled the cushions on the carpet instead. Lack of storage made it hard to unpack and settle in. I was pleasantly surprised to find dishwashing essentials and bath towels. Comfy bed but bedroom can get very noisy from the camping bathroom being on the other side of the wall Read more(surprisingly enough it's a popular spot for people to meet and chat lol). Great location for walking around with the dog though. Would come back. Hide

What a gem of a place and a great concept for the sole walker. With a fantastic location and easy access to the Northern Lakes, this tiny space has everything necessary to make it attractive to come back to after a day's walking. It is well equipped for self catering with hotplates, oven and grill, a comfy bed and ensuite hot shower and toilet. If Read moreyou are doubtful about the swing seat, bring a folding camp chair. Tastefully and thoughtfully decorated; I would come again! Great value for money. Hide

The hiking hut was a truly amazing place. The views were incredible, and not far from Keswick at all! perfect for the solo traveller and great for anyone who has a dog. I followed directions to 'Low hollows farm' on google maps - that took me straight to the location. Inside it has everything you need! the ladder stairs are steep but easy to manageRead more. The only comments i have are to take an eye mask & ear plugs as you are right next to the loos and can get noisy at certain times of the day/night. Hide

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
