Pine Lodge on Secluded Farm - lodge 2



Updated: 12-Nov-2016
Lodges in Ireby, near Wigton and Keswick, Cumbria, England - Peaceful location with Abundant Wildlife

These pine log cabins enjoy a secluded south facing position on Snittlegarth Farm, with views across open country to Binsey Fell. A haven for wildlife, as well as the farm animals. Snittlegarth is home to roe deer, badgers, foxes, pheasants and a variety of songbirds, with red squirrels coming up to the lodges to feed. The original Snittlegarth Estate was owned by Lord Gillford and extended to 12,000 acres. It is now farmed on a smaller scale and has the benefit of footpaths from the doorstep on to Binsey Fell and beyond. Snittlegarth lies in a truly tranquil valley close to Ireby and Uldale on the northern fringe of the National Park and provides an idyllic retreat for those who wish to escape from the hustle and bustle of every day life.

Comfortable, cozy, quiet, scenic

  • 5 of 5

Great little log cabin, warm, cozy, good sized rooms, good little kitchen, quiet, lots of birds on the feeders and red squirrels as well, farmer Rod is very helpful and makes sure you are settled in alright, amazing night sky, not too far from Cockermouth or Keswick for shops and pubs, great base for exploring the northern lakes. Dog friendly.Kids want to come again.

A few possible niggles: the shower head might need replacing for one that can deal with the low pressure (I had the same issue with mine and bought a cheap non adjustable one).

The track from the main road is unpaved, could be an issue for some cars, best to drive slow anyway as there are hens and sheep about.

Paid via bank transfer without any problems. Arrived at met by friendly owner and his dog. Comfortable well equipped lodge although a little dated in decor. Beautiful surrounding area ideal for my toddler to run around. Fenced off too as was balcony. Near to civilisation and plenty to do. Will definitely be back.

Just what the Dr ordered

  • 5 of 5

Booked a last minute stay as needed to get away. Very prompt service from owner via email. A lovely warm, comfortable,clean welcoming Lodge. Not Posh but who needs that. Owner very welcoming even giving us some free range eggs. We woke up to peace and quiet. Peacocks on Verandah and chickens foraging. Each evening we had a lovely visit from Martha an adorable Labrador. She came and knocked to say hello.

Would recommed if just want to get away from it all.
