Cabin Holiday Rental
A dream for couples or families, this cosy pine lodge nestles amongst peaceful woodland on the private Neaum Crag Estate at the head of the spectacular Langdale Valley. Built from polished wood inside and out, Tarn Hows will make a special base for your holiday. You'll love returning from exploring the walking paths nearby, for a drink on the patio surrounded by the sounds of the forest, or a dip in the private pool with Jacuzzi and sauna nearby ( approx. 150yds) What a perfect escape. Whip up a tasty home cooked meal before a cosy night in, or why not head out to one of the lovely traditional pubs at Skelwith Bridge or Elterwater? Accommodation in detail Private parking for 1 car.

Built from polished wood inside and out, Tarn Hows will make a special base for your holiday. You'll love returning from exploring the walking paths nearby, for a drink on the patio surrounded by the sounds of the forest, or a dip in the private pool with Jacuzzi and sauna nearby ( approx. 150yds) What a perfect escape. Whip up a tasty home cooked meal before a cosy night in, or why not head out to one of the lovely traditional pubs at Skelwith Bridge or Elterwater? Accommodation in detail Private parking for 1 car. Enter to the open plan lounge/kitchen/dining room. The kitchen has plenty of storage, electric oven with extractor, microwave and fridge, all wrapped up in granite style worktops. Two large leather sofas and TV/DVD and dining table. A high chair is provided. The double bedroom also has a louvre door built in wardrobe. There is a decent sized single bedroom fitted with bunk beds with room for a travel cot. The bathroom has a traditional three-piece suite with modern shower over bath to enable you to have a good soak after a days walking. Table and chairs on spacious decking outside. Sitting amongst peaceful woodland on a private estate between Ambleside and Coniston, Tarn Hows is the perfect location for a relaxing break in the Lake District. You are guaranteed quiet and seclusion, yet with some of the most popular attractions in the Lakes within easy driving distance. A holiday cottage near the Langdale Valley is an obvious choice for keen hikers and climbers. From the valley you can hike to England's highest tarn, or take on the spectacular Jake's Rake ridge as you tick off the famous three; Harrison Stickle, Pike of Stickle and Loft Crag. The neighbouring Wasdale and Borrowdale Valleys are traditional starting points for an ascent of Scafell Pike. Ambleside is just a few miles away and the ideal place to stock up the kitchen on your way. The vibrant village centre is well worth a visit; lazing in cafes, visiting historic sites such as the roman fort, or strolling to Lake Windermere for a lake cruise to Bowness or Lakeside. Ambleside tourist information centre is a useful port of call for walking routes, and there are plenty of expert outdoor stores where advice will be on hand. A host of excellent Lake District country pubs are dotted throughout the Langdale Valley, serving locally brewed ale and hearty food. If you're looking for a special evening out, sample the Glass House in Ambleside or seek out the famous Drunken Duck Inn and Restaurant in Outgate.More

Great lodge, well equipped, clean. Balcony overlooking forest, back to nature. Steep incline to access, but didn't bother us. Site was in the perfect place to get around the Lakes. Loved it.
