Dog Crag Cabin is a truly special retreat and is perfect for couples or single guests.

The Cabin welcomes up to two pets and makes a perfect base for active holidays.

Park up and take in the breath-taking scenery, enveloping your stone-fronted abode.

Opening the arched door to the cabin you step into a well-designed and modern open plan, self-contained timber cabin interior that is tastefully decorated, complete with a four-poster bed and ensuite facilities with a large walk-in shower.

The compact kitchenette, housing all the essentials for a self-catered stay, where you can prepare meals on the induction hob before gathering around the dining table, encompassed by lovely wood-clad walls, to sit and enjoy your meal next to the window overlooking views of the farm and open countryside.

End the evening by relaxing to the front of the property, with a tipple in hand whilst the sun sets over Cumbria.

For amenities, guests will locate a Post Office and the Miners Arms pub in Silecroft or can travel by car into nearby Millom, home to a selection of shops, pubs and eateries, whilst local attractions include Millom Heritage & Arts Centre, Millom Beach, RSPB Hodbarrow, and Millom Rock Park.

Take advantage of your unique surroundings to explore Black Combe Fell or simply sit back and admire the beautiful star-filled skies on a clear night in the Whicham Valley, recognised for its 'Dark Skies' status.

Crossing over into the national park, be spoilt for choice when spending your days hiking and cycling, following the many trails on offer, all enjoying breath-taking views of the surrounding fells, whilst Coniston Water, Windermere and Ullswater are all worth a visit for spectacular scenes and a host of outdoor activities.
