    It was spotlessly clean, so much so we felt like the first people to stay there. Loved the hot tub and all the extra touches that made it feel really comfortable, especially the smart tvs and underfloor heating! The location was also great, lots to do nearby.

  • "Absolutely stunning cottage for the perfect getaway."

    The lodge itself is absolutely beautiful - both modern and cosy and is furnished to an extremely high standard. It had absolutely everything we needed from kitchen utensils to blankets to laundry facilities! The hosts were extremely helpful if we ever needed them and they were also really knowledgeable about the surrounding area which was great for us being first timers to The Lake District. The hot tub is located on the rear of the property along with some chairs - it was very private from surrounding properties. The surrounding area is also great to visit - lots of great walks, pubs, and villages to wander around. The photos don't do it justice of how lovely it truly is. We will absolutely be back - thank you for a wonderful weekend.

  • "It is an absolutely lovely lodge, everything was immaculate and we'll thought out."

    We especially appreciated the fact that it is surrounded by so many trees making it feel very private as you can't immediately see all the other lodges.

Make yourself comfortable on one of the two sumptuous, grey sofas facing the Smart TV, so you can browse your favourite streaming services and choose the latest release as day rolls into night.

Look forward to retiring at the end of the day to one of two fabulous bedrooms, both decorated in the same style, featuring inviting king-size beds, and Smart TVs with a fantastic living flame effect, creating a homely illusion that include sound effects of a roaring fire!

Step into the en-suite shower room to find a fully-tiled and sleek washing space, with a rainfall showerhead for added luxury, underfloor heating, and a de-misting mirror.

Each bedroom enjoys its own access out onto the rear decking where you can enjoy a relaxing soak in the hot tub, unwinding on the outdoor seating here with a drink afterwards, or make use of the front decking which boasts furniture for alfresco dining, perfect in the summer!
