“perfect family break”

This was our first break away together as a new family of 4 and we could not have wished for anything more. We had a fantastic week. The log cabin is perfect with plenty of space for the 4 of us, very clean and well equipped! The swimming pool is lovely, just 2 minutes from the cabin and was often empty meaning we had the pool to ourselves. The shop on site had a really lovely helpful lady. We walked to ambleside, grasmere and chapel stile while we were there with our pram and all the walks were really nice, particularly the walk to ambleside! There is a girgeous river path at skelwith bridge to the wainwright bar which is a must for the food! Skelwith bridge has the talbot bar which is 5 minutes from the cabin and also has friendly staff and lovely food. We would definitely recommend this cabin for families and we will definitely return.

Ideal location, for walking, sight seeing and for a base to see the Lake District. The log cabin was clean, comfortable, a good night sleep in very good beds.

“Wonderful in every way.”

The cabin is in a wonderful location and is spotlessly clean. Plenty of room for family of 4 and a large dog. Everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay whatever the weather, even birds on the feeder just outside the window.
Kids loved the on site pool which was also spotless.
Lots of lovely walks from the cabin. Easy access for Ambleside and Grassmere.
Fantastic holiday in perfect surroundings.

Lovely cabin that feels more secluded than it actually is. Pristine interior with a selection of DVDs, CDs, books and games - not that we needed them as the weather was perfect.
