Enjoying a rural location with views across the rolling countryside, tastefully finished and just perfect for couples looking to get away and enjoy the Lake District, whatever the time of year.

An idyllic wood cabin just 3 miles from the coast, this six-person lodge simply begs for short breaks and drawn-out adventures. Ideal for walkers, cyclists, sports enthusiasts and wildlife-lovers, its superb rural location and proximity to nearby beauty spots lends it universal appeal amongst families and friends. A few hundred yards from a great village bakery and just 2 miles from Ulverston with its multitude of shops, eateries and pubs, you can easily rotate between town streets, coast paths and country trails – filling your Lakeland getaway with the kinds of adventures you’ll cherish for years to come.

Built from wood sourced from Beatrix Potter’s former estate, this striking log cabin looks like something out of a fairy-tale. Head up the outside steps and wander through the front door to the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, where a Hansel and Gretel-style room with stunning exposed woodwork, huge timber beams and warm decor awaits. If a day in the Cumbrian air has fuelled your appetite, head to the kitchen to rustle up a feast, or to simply kick back and relax, home in on the lounge area with its comfortable seating, large wood burner and TV/DVD. Making sure everyone has somewhere to private to unwind, this cottage also benefits from three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

A popular feature for leisurely mornings and evenings of socialising, you will find a large terrace outside with BBQ facilities, not to mention large grounds to explore. As well as the great local walks, the surrounding area is also home to some stunning natural beauty spots, including the southern shores of Lake Windermere (8.5 miles) and Coniston Water (7.5 miles). For walks along the beach, the National Trust’s Sandscale Haws National Nature Reserve is only 9 miles away and great for birdwatching in winter – with 20,000 wintering waterfowl regularly seen.

What a lovely place to stay - from the cozy, comfy lodge with everything you could want to the alpacas for neighbours! We loved it. It is a beautiful area of the lakes, quieter than the more popular regions, but all the better for that.

Really lovely, cosy and unique cabin - we had such a relaxing stay with so many beautiful places to walk around and visit in the surrounding area. Extra clean and fab bathrooms. We loved the coffee, wine and biscuits on arrival and enjoyed the log burner, big squashy sofas and of course, the alpacas! Friendly and helpful owners.

Lovely warm cottage, in a beautiful spot with great wildlife (& cute alpacas)! Welcome pack much appreciated & useful. Very fast wi-fi & powerful shower, although cabin quite dark with insufficient lighting; one bedroom with unusual sized mattress - feet hung over bottom end (I'm 5' 6")! Some kitchen equipment needs replacing. Sadly cabin not as clRead moreean as expected - especially given Covid situation. Hide

Lovely, cosy cottage with complimentary wine and biscuits which is always a nice touch. Loved the outdoor space too and the kids loved the alpacas. The location was ideal for day trips to other areas of the lakes. Would undoubtedly stay here again.

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

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.
