Studded on the cusp of the Lake District National Park within the grounds of a working farm, this stylish lodge is the perfect retreat for four guests. Reacquaint yourself with the great outdoors, swapping the daily grind for scenic walks and picnics with a view, scaling summits or venturing 19.5 miles to soak up the serenity of beautiful Bassenthwaite Lake and visit the popular distillery. On your return, your holiday accommodation offers a warm greeting with a roaring wood burner and cosy interiors.

Shrug off your muddy coats and pour yourself a soothing brew, escaping the elements to curl up inside your delightful bolthole. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is perfectly tailored to unwinding in style, whether you are preparing a feast in the kitchen or dining against the backdrop of sweeping fells through the windows. Both bedrooms are stylish and perfectly appointed for slumber, both sharing a handy shower room – although the master suite has the added bonus of an en-suite shower room. Outside, the raised decked area is just the spot for sipping your morning coffee.

The northern fells are simply breathtaking, offering spectacular views in abundance as well as challenging hill climbs and rugged countryside.

A short 2-mile drive will bring you to the chocolate-box village of Caldbeck, a traditional destination with a pretty river trickling through and an array of historic buildings including a watermill that is now the site of a restaurant and a selection of shops. Browse the village then embark on a new adventure to visit the waterfalls of the old limestone gorge. Further afield, Keswick 15.5 miles away is a treasure trove for historians, foodies and retail therapy enthusiasts alike, where you can pick up some souvenirs and enjoy some locally sourced produce in one of the many eateries.

We were very impressed how everything was what we needed for a restful week, all mod cons. Maybe only one thing a board with the name of the cottages at the end of the lane as we ended up at other farms.

The Quiet Owl is a lovely, tranquil retreat, high up on the Cumbrian Fells with stunning views all around. I loved having the ewes and their little lambs as my neighbours and enjoyed walking across the fields to Caldbeck village. The accommodation is warm and cosy and had everything I needed for a comfortable stay.

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.
