The Lodge sits alone in a clearing by a wide sweep of woodland on the banks of the River Eamont on the edge of the Lake District. The log cabin fits perfectly with this rural location and the feel inside is 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. There is also plenty to do at The Lodge itself. You can arrange hampers to be waiting for you or a freshly prepared meal 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...

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!"
