The estate comprises 18 acres with cosy log cabins set in an area of complete seclusion. It is centrally located approximately 2 1/2 miles west of Ambleside at the foot of the Langdale Valley with easy access to Central Lake District, Winderemere, Coniston, Ambleside, Grasmere etc and has spectacular views from the top of the site across the Langdale Valley and down to Loughrigg Tarn New: Guests will have access to Free WiFi within the cabin. The double bedroom now has the benefit of a 22' wall mounted smart TV. Nestling in an area of complete seclusion at the foot of the Langdale Valley, where some of the Lake Districts most inviting hills and crags can be found, this is most certainly paradise for walkers and climbers bikers or those who simply enjoy a short stroll. Mockerkin Tarn log cabin (2 bedroom sleeps 5) has become a big hit with both previous and new visitors being ideally located towards the top of the site with parking for 2 cars directly to the side of the cabin. The log cabin benefits from a secure gated decking which enjoys lots of light and is a real suntrap on those many sun blessed days. With newly fitted modern kitchen including integrated fan oven and ceramic hob, cream leather sofa and 32' flat screen TV, Mockerkin Tarn is a great cabin in which to enjoy a well earned break. New for 2017: Free WiFi available in cabin plus Leisure Building Up to 2 well behaved dogs are welcome at Mockerkin Tarn log cabin. The first dog is included in the price, there is a £15.00 charge for the second dog which is paid direct to the owners.More

What a lovely find! The location is perfect for some stunning walks and is only a short distance to the idyllic Ambleside. The cabin was very clean and fully equipped as well as cosy and comfortable. Would definitely recommend a stay.
