Beautiful location, quiet and convenient for exploring the Lakes. The outside space allows you to sit undercover if the weather is inclement and on the patio if sunny, the view from both is breathtaking.

Absolutely flawless - beautiful cabin with excellent facilities and superb views. The owner was extremely welcoming and responsive to any queries I had. Little touches - such as the scones on arrival, or the ice lolly on a hot day, made this a really special holiday. Couldn't recommend it highly enough.

We had a fabulous break in Watson Dodds Pod. The pod was luxurious, so comfortable, had lots of space and had everything we needed. Rosie was super friendly and was happy to return an item which my husband left behind! I have no hesitation in recommending Mire House Farm and hope to return again in the future.

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.
