    “We had the most amazing time at Shepherds Lodge!”

    The lodge was beautiful, finished to a very high standard, literally can't fault it! We are a family of 2 adults and an infant, our little one had such a fun time running exploring each room, and using the hot tub (with the temp turned down!) the house was naturally very warm which was a nice treat in winter. Using the log fire and hot tub were the perfect way to unwind at the end of the day, it was magical, and so lovely being out in the countryside. The kitchen was well equipt and had ...

    The lodge was beautiful, finished to a very high standard, literally can't fault it! We are a family of 2 adults and an infant, our little one had such a fun time running exploring each room, and using the hot tub (with the temp turned down!) the house was naturally very warm which was a nice treat in winter. Using the log fire and hot tub were the perfect way to unwind at the end of the day, it was magical, and so lovely being out in the countryside. The kitchen was well equipt and had everything in that we needed to make a gousto meal that we brought with us. (Note to future guests bring olive oil, salt/pepper, and washing up liquid & cloth so you don't have to buy any.) There is a convenience store about 5mins drive away if you forget anything though. The area is stunning, plenty to do. Food is gorgeous from the Cavendish Pub. Locals are so friendly. Would definitely return!

The property

This superb lodge is situated a 15 minute stroll from the historic village of Cartmel, at the top of the exclusive Pastures lodge park in a slightly elevated position towards the boundary of this 26 acre park with woodland and glade, thus affording extra outdoor space and privacy.

Immaculately-presented in a quality contemporary style, this spacious lodge has open plan living with patio doors from the living area and a bedroom that opens on to the spacious elevated decking screened by glass with patio furniture and hot tub.

On entering the lodge there is a vestibule with seating area and the washer/dryer which leads into the open plan living space with a large comfortable leather settee and woodburner, perfect to relax in front of on those chillier evenings.

When warmer, open the patio doors and step onto the decking perhaps for an alfresco meal or drink and listen to the sound of bird song.

The well-equipped stylish kitchen has integral appliances, granite surfaces and has a very useful wine chiller.

Stepping into the spacious bedroom there are also patio doors leading to the private decking and the en-suite bathroom has a bath with rain shower over and with beautiful contemporary fixtures and fittings.

The lodge also benefits from a hot tub allowing guests to relax after a hard day exploring the local area.

Picturesque Cartmel is just three quarters of a mile away with its 12th century priory, and interesting independent shops and, of course, its eateries and pubs, including the infamous L'enclume restaurant together with a great selection of other restaurants.

There is also the racecourse which holds meets during the summer months when the whole village is open, so a fantastic day out is within walking distance.

Locally, there is Newby Bridge, which is at the southerly tip of Windermere, where you can take a boat cruise and view the stunning lakeland scenery on route to Bowness or Ambleside.

Cyclists will also delight in the many trials especially in close by Grizedale Forrest.

Grange-over-Sands is just 2 miles away, a Lakeland Edwardian coastal town with estuary promenade walk, a chocolatier and cafes.

Humpreys Head is a pretty walk with coastal views and bluebell-filled woodland and this point is said to be the last known sighting of a wolf.

This fabulous lodge is perfectly positioned for exploring this glorious lakeland area both near or further afield all year round.

Return back to the lodge at the end of the day and enjoy total rest and relaxation.

Note: This property is next to Ref: 937354, together they sleep 4.
