The Lodge - Cabin in Cumbria

Last cache: 16:56:12, Wednesday 25 November 2015


Suitable for children of all ages

Pets welcome

Rustic frontier meets stylish modernity… catch your own trout for supper, then soak in the hot tub while watching otters swim upstream!

The Lodge sits in a secluded clearing beside a wide sweep of woodland on the banks of the River Eamont on the edge of the Lake District. Inside, it’s warm and homely, with stylish touches throughout. From the upstairs master bedroom, with views that make the most of The Lodge's spot, the wrought-iron spiral staircase drops into the middle of the well-equipped open-plan kitchen and lounge. There are comfy armchairs facing the wood-burner, a double sofa bed and sliding doors which open onto the veranda to let in cool summer breezes and, occasionally, the sound of deer coming down to the river to drink.

The land of the Edenhall estate offers plenty of scope for hiking and cycling in its woodlands as well as private stretches of the river which are fantastic for salmon fishing. You can jump in the hot tub at any time and wildlife- spot from the decking - king fishers, red squirrels, salmon and pheasants are all regular visitors to these banks. There’s even high speed WiFi, not that you’d know it by how far away from everything you’ll feel! You can order hampers to be waiting for you or a freshly prepared meal can be put in the oven. The nearby Lake District, with a range of outdoor activities, also demands hearty exploration or, at the very least, idle contemplation.

Our guests say...

What a beautiful place! We were there on our honeymoon, and it was so peaceful, quiet, and tranquil, it was the absolute perfect way to follow such a manic time as a wedding. We saw a kingfisher, a Heron, some kind of bird of prey, and possibly some reed warblers, an otter. We heard 2 different types of Owl, and got to see so many stars at night. Beautiful!



We had the most wonderful time. This is our second stay (dog, two children and two adults!) and the reason why we have come back is that it is simply magical. We do not need anything else in our stay other than just "being" at the lodge. Time together as a family with nature around us. We hardly ventured out; why would we when it is so beautiful at the Lodge?



My wife and I spent one of the most relaxing and enjoyable breaks we've ever experienced. The location of the lodge, together with the peace and tranquility of the surroundings made our stay perfect.



What a beautiful location and lodge! Quiet and peaceful with so much wildlife, what a treat to be surrounded by red squirrels and deer to name just a few! Comfortable and well lit, definitely coming back soon!



A fantastic secluded and peaceful place, very well equipped, clean and comfortable. Sitting out on the verandah listening to the birds and river was balm to the soul. Although secluded, it was not far to Penrith for provisions, and there is of course great walking in the area and lots to do. We didn't want to leave.



Fantastic location, great accommodation and perfect solitude. We loved every minute and would certainly wish for a return visit.

Staying the The Lodge is a special experience. The Lodge itself is fantastic. We loved how it had been so carefully and well built and the simple, effective design. Inside, it's kitted out and furnished well and has everything needed for a comfortable stay. It's warm and cosy. The shower and loo are in a separate building adjacent to the back of the Lodge, but its not a problem and very well appointed. However, the best thing is the remote and tranquil location. It's two miles from Edenhall down single track lanes, then a short walk through a woodland path from the car parking space. In May this was full of bluebells - so beautiful. The river attracts lots of wildlife. In addition to the red squirrels, herons, buzzards and kites, we saw otters, kingfishers and a lovely hare. We also loved the bats who exited the roof of the Lodge every night and were just brilliant to watch. All this is entirely on the doorstep (well veranda) and completely separate from anyone else. It's a joy! The only minor point is that walking is actually quite limited, there's only one public path on the Estate.



There are no words for how amazing the lodge is, its one of those places that you don't fully appreciate until you get back to the rat race. Being somewhere where the only sound is the river and bird song is just magical. I took my boyfriend here for his 30th and we both feel in love with the place. The lodge at night is so cosy and then waking up to bats nesting in the roof and the red squirrel at the window is something you wouldn't get elsewhere. I would advise anyone who wants to get away from it all for a couple of days to book it.



What a fabulous place The Lodge is. Right from the start when we meandered along the path through the woods and caught our first glimpse of The Lodge we knew is was going to be a magical stay. It is wonderfully appointed so that it feels like a home away from home but without the annoyances of modern mobile signal, no wi-fi, no tv...bliss. Where it is situated is absolutely perfect, could barely keep the dog or one of our friends out of the river! The dawn chorus is a wonderful thing to wake up to and the fact that there is no other noise apart from the wildlife is fantastic. I would thoroughly recommend getting up for sunrise, which looks great along the river, and also if you get a clear night turn all the lights of and sit under the stars for a while. This place is the ultimate destresser for modern hectic lives.



We went to the lodge for my 30th birthday with my wife & two little jack russells in tow. The location was utterly perfect with arguably the best section of the river to admire and listen to as you drifted off to sleep or awoke in the morning. The dogs had life jackets and frequented the river several times a day, I got brave and jumped in myself (it was freezing!) but it was just something that you just had to do... although the wife didn't agree and stayed with her feet firmly on the shore! Our visitors around the lodge included an array of wildlife including red squirrels, pheasants, wild birds and moles (we saw their little hills at least!) and we would while away the hours sitting on the verandah with a glass of prosecco just taking it all in. At night we turned off the lights and admired the stars, with no other light pollution they were a sight to behold, if it was warmer we would have stayed out for most of the night but that no doubt is something to come back for in the Summer. We took long walks around the estate but for the most stayed at the lodge, it was just too idyllic too leave our little piece of paradise for too long.



"We really enjoyed the peace and quiet as well as the convience to Penrith and Carlisle plus the Motorways. We had a really lovely time just chilling outside or inside when cold with the log fire on!"



"Fantastic! Location was magical. The only sounds were birds singing and the river flowing. Sat on the veranda watching the wildlife was stunning - the outside world didn't exist."



"My stay was fantastic! The Lodge is beautiful and in the most magical of locations. The peace, tranquility and wildlife were a wonderful escape from the stresses and worries of everyday life. I rarely left to see Cumbria, I just wanted to stay absorbed in this amazing place! Mark and Bill were both fabulous too... so welcoming and helpful. I couldn't fault my break and was really sad to leave."



"Being without a mobile phone signal was great. The isolation, woods and river were excellent!"



"We loved it! The location and setting was perfect. The bathroom facilities were A LOT better than we expected and the shower pressure was almost better than home."



"Yes, it was amazing, exactly what we were after and would definitely want to return."



"Our stay was brilliant; from the location and design of the Lodge through to how well we were looked after and what a relaxing post-wedding environment it was. We have been reccommending it to anyone who will listen since we got back and definately plan on returning. Perfect for peace, quiet and relaxation. Couldn't fault a thing!"



"We absolutely loved our time at the Lodge. One particularly good aspect was that we could stay Friday 'til Monday (not Sunday). It made for a much more relaxing trip. I can't think of any negative aspects to the weekend. Loved the verandah, the river, the wood-burning stove, the style of The Lodge, the surrounding woodland..."



"Loved it! The Lodge is beautiful, in a great location, with all the amenities you require.  Cut off from the outside world (ie no internet, no mobile phone signal, no TV and no radio). It is a great place to get away from the rat race and focus on the natural beauty and wildlife that surrounds you."



"Absolutely loved our stay, I cant express enough how beautiful the setting and lodge are! Fantastic to get away from madness of the world!"



"Lived up to my expectations and much much more. The personal touches, lovely homeliness of the lodge, trickling water of the river, tranquility and all out gorgeousness of the place gave us both a weekend to remember. I will recommend the lodge to everyone."



"We loved this place! Just to be completely secluded was something really special but to have the sound of the river, the beautiful scenery and the wildlife was amazing. The Lodge was so nice even the pictures don't prepare you for how good it is. Enjoyed our nights barbequeing and playing cards on the veranda - will definitely return"



"We went to The Lodge for our honeymoon, and loved it so much. There were so many best moments, from waking up in the attic bedroom and watching red squirrels from the bed, to dusk walks along the river and spotting a glimpse of otters. We enjoyed long lazy days sat on the veranda as the rain came down, we lit the stove at night and played scrabble in front of the fire."



It was even more amazing in real life. Beautiful setting and the lodge itself had everything we could possibly need. On the last night, my boyfriend proposed to me on the veranda, so now it's even more special to me!"
