The lodge is very well situated for exploring the North West Lakes and Cockermouth. Great walks round Crummock Water, Buttermere, Catbells etc. Eric Lowes, the owner, is a delight and made us so welcome. The location by the River Cocker provide some lovely walks. We had a wonderful week.

A bit isolated but this is also the strength of the property. We have had a wonderfully relaxing holiday, driving out to the attractions of the Lake District and then returning for a quiet evening. We particularly enjoyed sitting out on the decking beside the river

This is our second visit to the cottage and it was even more perfect than the last time. The location is stunning - so peaceful - yet within easy reach of Keswick and Whinlatter. The host Eric is lovely and also his cheeky Beagle Belle.
