We were unaccustomed to using an Aga so bringing ready cooked food for the 1st night was a great help for our 20 people. We struggled to cook enough pizzas in 1 go on another night. Place otherwise was fantastic.

The cottage is n a great location. However the garden is not secure. Several items need addressing including curtains in 2 of the bedrooms need addressing as parts missing which meant being woken at 5:45am, The heating on the first floor needs addressing as only one radiator worked in one of the bedrooms, Some of the dining chairs need repairing/reRead moreplacing. More instructions on AGA would be helpful, Good points, spacious property. The garden furniture is excellent, Hide

Weve just spent 4 nights in Swinside Lodge. What can I say, its a fantastic house! This was our first friends get together after Covid lockdown & we couldnt have picked a better house. If youre looking for a house for up to 20 guests, I cant recommend this place enough.

Beautiful property in a beautiful location. Perfect for our family celebration. Everything we needed in the large kitchen. The bedrooms were lovely, all very spacious. The three reception rooms were great for watching tv or a chill out reading space. Spotlessly clean. We will be making a return visit. We all loved it.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Adventure, memories and awe-inspiring natural beauty await you in the rugged, wild and unique Cumbrian Lake District where beautiful expanses of water merge with magical forests against a backdrop of dramatic mountains and fells.

This ancient land has been sculpted by time and nature and is the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first UK National Park to be awarded this outstanding accolade. Poets, writers and artists throughout the ages have been instinctively drawn here; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, to name a few. The attractions and the diverse landscape will not fail to charm the young and the young at heart, whether that be thrill-seeking activities you seek, pure and cathartic inspiration or simply just some relaxation, you will find it here.

Cycling, walking, canoeing, white-water rafting, flying, parachuting and ballooning are just some of the offerings for any level of adrenalin junky. Experience the glory of nature in the wild or in a setting such as the Predator Experience where you can walk with wolves and learn about the importance of conservation. For a complete day of family, enjoy treetop capers at Go-Ape in the Grizedale Forest.

Vibrant towns and villages are there to be discovered, be it by land or water. You can step back in time and enjoy a steamboat cruise on a lake or leisurely unearth the dynamic scene of contemporary art, culture and some of the best dining in the UK by foot, bus or car.

The National Park is an area of breath-taking beauty that will leave you spoilt for choice, refuelled and inspired. So much so that you’ll want to come back time and time again.
