Tranquil Rural Lodge With Beautiful Views, Private Deck And Gardens With Brook



Updated: 21-Oct-2016
Lodge Nr. Greystoke / Penrith, Lake District, Cumbria, England - Perfect For Walking, Cycling Or Just Relaxing! Nr Greystoke A Picture Perfect Lakeland Village

Dukes Meadow is located midway between Keswick and Penrith and within a short drive of Lake Ullswater. The lodge is located on the edge of Greystoke Forest, with views looking towards Blencathra and the Northern Fells of the Lake District National Park. It is in one of the quietest and least known areas in the Lake District, somehow Cumbrians have successfully kept this area very much to themselves and jealously protect its peace and tranquility. This beautiful area is best described as being quiet, unspoilt and un-commercialized yet is very accessible from the motorway system, the M6 (Junctions 40 and 41) are 15 and 10 minutes drive away respectively. This makes 29 Dukes Meadow ideally located to explore not only the Lake District but the superb countryside of the Eden Valley, Northern Pennines, Hadrians Wall and the Scottish Borders.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"The place is amazing - absolutely beautiful and so well placed for visits all around. Absolutely delighted with the accommodation."

"We found this property to be very clean and well equipped. We loved the fact that it was peaceful and had good gardens for the children to play out in the sunshine. It is a great location for exploring the lake district. We have stayed here before and will definitely be coming again."

"I recently stayed here with a group of friends (all teachers) who needed a quiet getaway. The log cabin itself is ideally situated 20 mins from Penrith and Keswick, it is also really close to Lake Ullswater which is well worth a visit! It is situated in a quiet area which is perfect for those who want a relaxing time. The log fire is perfect for an autumn evening and makes the cabin feel homely whilst you are there. Thankyou for a lovely holiday I will be back!"

From the classic Lakeland village down the road, beautiful walks and bike rides right out of the door and amazing sunsets viewed from the dining table; my wife and I, our children and now grandchildren have made many wonderful memories of visits to "the lake district house" and we invite you to do the same!
