  • "The lodge was fabulous."

    Very cosy and had everything we needed. Host was very welcoming too and even cooked us a fabulous meal. Would definitely recommend.

    Thank you very much for your kind words. It’s very much appreciated. I really enjoyed meeting you both. I hope we can welcome you back to The Lake District in not such inclement weather conditions . Regards Trisha Property Owner

  • "ONLY views are of owner's house, as appears to be a converted garage on owner's driveway."

    Tiny and dark. Noisy - other side of hedge from very busy A591- not 'nestled in two acres of woodland' as advertised. And to cap it all, no working oven or hob in a self-catering property promising ' electric oven and halogen hob' Owner rude and greedy - told us it had been 'broken for a month'. Told us her 'reasonable alternative' was a single gas camping stove for outdoor use only. Then told us to use oven, DESPITE electrical fault! Even refused when we offered to buy an electrical stove ring from camping shop next day. Said it was in contravention of her insurance. Sykes Cottages employees were at times rude and at no point offered us help. Apparently, your contract is 'with the owner'. Took us a week (in which they issued US with a warning to get legal advice) to get the owner's name and contact details. Have never known greed, incompetence and utter contempt for customers like it. Will circulate this as widely as possible to ensure others don't fall victim to this ruthless, heartless company.

The property

The Homestead Lodge is a romantic, one-bedroom bolthole nestled in 2-acres of woodland in Troutbeck Bridge, Cumbria.

Set in the heart of the Lake District National Park, The Homestead Lodge offers the perfect base for a couple looking to explore the delights of Cumbria, whilst a short journey from the amenities, attractions and lake of Windermere.

Travel through the gated entrance, park up off-road, and take in your peaceful, woodland surroundings, recommended to traverse for the opportunity to spot wildlife from your doorstep.

Step indoors and be greeted by a charming, open-plan living space, complete with a well-equipped kitchen, a handy breakfast bar, and a homely sitting area, where you can sink into the plush sofa after a busy day of walking, with a lovely woodburning stove to light on cooler evenings.

Toast to your getaway over a romantic meal for two, or if the weather allows, set the patio table and listen to the surrounding wildlife as the sun sets over Cumbria.

Retire to the double bedroom, where you can rest and rejuvenate, whilst a sleek wet room is on offer, with the added luxury of underfloor heating to keep you warm.

Come morning, enjoy a fresh coffee and a breakfast hamper, before heading into the woodland for a hike, followed by a tour of the local area, starting with the nearby village of Troutbeck Bridge, an area of unspoilt natural beauty with rolling hills, delightful cottages, and a friendly pub to sample some traditional Cumbrian fare.

Nearby, take a trip to the iconic Lake Windermere, the largest natural lake in the UK, for tranquil boat trips, kayaking and paddleboarding, plus a range of steamer cruises and attractions for all types of interests.

If you’d prefer to stay on dry land, the Windermere Jetty Museum - Stories of boats and steam, is only a short drive away, as is the 19th-century Blackwell and Holehird Gardens.

For an electric atmosphere, take a short drive to the bustling town of Ambleside with its range of independent shops, eateries, and pubs, or explore the nearby villages of Grasmere and Coniston, both oozing culture, history, and natural beauty.

Experience all the glory of the national park by booking The Homestead Lodge.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
