Our luxury self catering log cabins are located at the very heart of South Lakeland about 2 miles west of Ambleside village at the mouth of the Langdale Valley. Close enough to be in the thick of things and yet a whole world away...

Langdale is a popular location for walkers, hikers, climbers, and other outdoor enthusiasts who are attracted by the many fells ringing the head of the valley. You can begin your adventure directly from your door of your cabin without need for a car.

What's nearby?

There is a hotel within a short walk down the hill where you can find formal dining in their restaurant or pub-grub in the walkers bar. They serve cask ales alongside a daily changing list of dinner specials. They are family friendly and welcome your dog too. Within a 3 mile radius you will enjoy a breathtaking mix of fine dining restaurants (two with a Michelin star), gastro-pubs, craft breweries and coffee shops and cafés.

Our nearest lake is only a short 5 minute walk away. Here you can swim in the summer sunshine, or if you have a licence you can fish for roach and perch. For more organised water sports then the marina at Lake Winderemere is only a short drive away, where you can find all manner of activities or for those who like a more sedate pace take a steamboat trip around the lake.

There is a well stocked convenience store (and café) about a mile away along the valley road or you can find plentiful facilities in the village of Ambleside.

Visitors with a family are ensured that their children will be extremely well catered for. It's quiet and peaceful and any worries about busy roads or noisy traffic can be left far behind. During the main season guests have unlimited access to a central building housing an heated Swimming Pool with Jacuzzi, Sauna and a relaxation hall where you can meet other guests or play Ping-Pong and board games.

In short there is everything you might need for a family holiday or a romantic short break within a stone's throw.
