The Lodge - Cabin in Cumbria
Suitable for children of all ages
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.
