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.
The perfect destination for a romantic retreat or a getaway with family, this quirky abode has all the creature comforts you need to cosy up after days spent adventuring. With four-legged guests welcomed too, hunt out spots for everyone to enjoy and travel to the likes of Ullswater (16.5 miles) and Penrith (8 miles) for a ride on the steamboat and a tasty bite to eat. After long days, return home and soak in the hot tub, a great way to relax muscles and unwind.
Climb steps to the decking and make your way into the welcoming, open-plan living space. Fitting together perfectly, creating a wonderful space for early mornings, lazy afternoons and lively nights, are the kitchen, lounge and diner. Get the wood burner effect electric fire roaring and feel the heat fill the space, giving you a warm welcome after days spent outdoors. Helping you out on those ‘chasing the sunrise’ early starts is the coffee machine. Team a warming mug of coffee with a hearty breakfast to set you up for the day and plate up either inside or out. With an en-suite shower room and a family shower room, avoid the morning queue to freshen up after a peaceful night’s sleep in the two tranquil bedrooms. If you’re treating yourself to a lazy morning, the master bedroom has a TV so you can snuggle under the covers and watch a programme or two. There is off-road parking for two cars.
Positioned in the charming village of Calthwaite, pay the local pub a visit and tuck into hearty meals by the roaring wood burner, where all the family are welcome, including those with wagging tails. For a day on the water, make the 16.5-mile journey to Ullswater, the second largest lake in England which sits amid fantastic fells and landscapes. Hop on the Ullwater Steamer, with the dogs in tow, and enjoy a cruise, keeping your eyes peeled for Wordsworth’s daffodils if holidaying in spring. Visit the mysterious, towering stones at Long Meg and her Daughters (11.5 miles) and stop off for a picnic and a stick chase.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
