If you're looking for that ideal escape to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the beautiful Lake District, then Blencathra Lodge is the perfect place to be. Only 10 minutes from the M6 Motorway, we are perfectly situated so that you can enjoy this wonderful part of the country. Set in the award winning gardens of Stafford House, itself an enchanting Grade 2 Listed "Folly" and nestling in the magnificent grounds of Greystoke Castle, your pets are more than welcome to stay with you too!
“This is a truly amazing place to stay and a big thank you to Hazel and presently she is doing everything single handed! Nothing was too much trouble for Hazel, lovely accommodation that clearly had a lot of thought put into it and an amazing setting with beautiful gardens. What's not to like!”
An ‘Amazing Spaces’ inspired shipping container conversion, entirely off grid, with wood burning stove, solar panels, sheep's wool insulation, beech wood reclaimed flooring and a separate composting toilet. In a peaceful secluded wildlife friendly garden, at the foot of the Pennine hills, the container is 5 minutes walk from Talkin village with a friendly pub serving food. An excellent base to explore Hadrian's Wall, the North Lakes and the Eden Valley.
“Bigger than you might expect and the log burner keeps the container toasty warm. Really comfortable bed and a calm, peaceful environment. We enjoyed the sound of owls by night, and the sight of a wide variety of birds by day. Sue was very accommodating of our late arrival, and had the log burner going for us. It’s good to have the use of the house bathroom at any time, and it’s only a minute’s walk away. Much appreciated!”
Recently built sandstone cottage with Mediterranean style in quiet hamlet. Large modern living space with fabulous views of the Pennine Hills.
“Beautiful apartment separate from the main house, definitely had the WOW factor. Comfy couch, huge comfy bed, warm, welcoming - Jane was accommodating and really friendly. Selection of things for brekkie and very importantly (for me!) there were tea making facilities with lots of teabags. A few teabags go a long way... This is the only review I've yet written where I've ticked all 7 of the 'extra special' features. Thanks for a very pleasant albeit short stay ******”
