Lovely stay in a clean, spacious cabin very near to the charming Ulverston - plenty of room for 6 in the cabin. We were all gutted to be leaving.

Beautifully made real log cabin set on the outskirts of the lake district. Extremely peaceful and relaxing. Loads of access to outstanding areas within a 30 min drive as well as loads of outdoor options on your doorstep. Without a doubt the cleanest and most well presented self catering cottage we have ever stayed in.

Cannot recommend this cottage enough. 4 of us went here for three days and two nights in November 2019 and this was the perfect getaway. The house was pristine, homely with lots of thoughtful touches. Louise was welcoming and very accommodating providing information about the local area. Already planning our next trip back

Excellent high end log cabin, location is perfect, owners are really friendly and helpful. Everything you will need is provided in the cabin. The kids loved the alpacas, especially feeding them carrots. Close to Ulverston which has the most amazing restaurants.

Stunning property in a great location - it feels quiet and isolated when you're there but it's only a few minutes drive from the main road. Very warm and comfortable, with friendly hosts. Major attractions are all within a 30 min drive, and Ulverston is close by for buying the essentials. Brilliant base to explore the Lake District from - in five dRead moreays we saw Coniston, Wastwater, Windermere + the aquarium at Lakeside, Haverigg beach, the zoo and Ullswater. 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.
