Tour the gorgeous Cumbrian countryside with a whole range of dog-friendly adventures to be had right on your doorstep. The lodge is just 6.5 miles from the beautiful Skelwith Force waterfall where there is a spectrum of different walking routes to explore, so no lead will be left unused and no tail will be left un-wagged.

Location amazing .incredible walks on the doorstep . Sadly the cabin didnt live up to our expectations mainly due to issues which previous guests reported which had not been fixed . For example no hot water in the bathroom sink , leaking loo , central light not working ., poor access lighting , incorrect arrival instructions . The sauna , swimming Read morepool and washing machine should not be advertised as non worked !!!With a little effort things could be vastly improved . Very expensive . Hide

Really nice cottage/lodge, pity we didn't get access to the pool but expected during these times. The cottage needs better signposting as trying to find it in the dark was hard work, the directions are great but finding the right one was hard. Great location, great area, my lad loved the x-box and wifi! We all enjoyed the walks and laughs, the dog Read moreenjoyed the lakes and muddy walks Hide

The cottage was clean and comfortable with plenty of space for the two of us and Elsie, our Labrador. Beds were really comfortable and we made good use of the Bluetooth speaker in the bathroom. Spectacular views from the decking area and we felt at home from the start to the end of our weeks holiday.
