Fancy getting away from it all? Then you have found the right place. A little piece of paradise on earth (only 3 occupied lodges on this 4 acre site) with uninterrupted views of Grizedale forest. Not far from Lake Windermere, Coniston and Hill Top and only 10 minutes to Grizedale Visitor Centre. With great walks on your doorstep you don't need to get into the car to explore the beautiful lake district, the UK's first world heritage national park as awarded by UNESCO.

Fancy getting away from it all? Then you have found the right place. A little piece of paradise on earth as our friends have described the lodge (only 4 lodges and only three sold at the moment, on this 4 acre site) with uninterrupted views of Grizedale Forest. If you are lucky you will see deer pass your window as they visit the communal gardens often. My husband lives in the lodge during the week so we rent it out mostly only in the weekends.

The living room, leads to a spacious decking with two rocking chairs and a big sturdy picnic bench. Around the corner is another seating area for 6 with a bbq where you can enjoy complete privacy and not be seen by anybody else to enjoy the evening sun. There is a fully equipped kitchen.

The lodge has three bedrooms, a big master bedroom with its own en-suite. Another double bedroom and a twin room who both have access to a seperate bathroom, with both a shower and bath. In addition there is a laundry room (with dryer and washing machine) and a very generous booth/cloack room. Here you can also find an array of dvd's as well as in the in the twin bedroom.

Bath towels and bed linen is provided for your stay. As well as bubble bath for that sumptius bath after a long walk.

There are two public footpaths leading past the lodge (with hardly any walkers passing through), so you don't need to get into a car to start your walk into Grizedale Forest and the surrounding areas.

Sattertwhaite is the nearest village with its own pub, the Eagles head, with great food. You can walk there in half an hour, using the footpath past force forge (water)fall.

The Swan in Newby Bridge is excellent for food as well and only a 15 minute drive away.

2.5 miles north of the lodge is Grizedale visitor centre, with its numerous walking & cycling trails and Go Ape adventures.

The popular Lakeland village of Hawkshead is only 5 miles away. Positioned between Coniston Water and Windermere, Hawkshead is arguably the quaintest location in the lakes, with white washed cottages dating back to the 16th century, charming old pubs and tea shops along narrow traffic-free streets.

The village is busy with tourists who come to see the Grammar school where, in the 1780’s William Wordsworth developed inspiration for this early poetry and home to the Beatrix Potter gallery showing her original drawings for her children’s books. Here you will also find a well stocked CO-OP, where you can buy most of your groceries (it's a 15 minute drive in the car to the co-op). There is a Booths grocery store in the market town of Ulverston which is about half an hours drive away!

9 miles West of the lodge is Coniston, situated on lake Coniston. The delightful village of Coniston nestles at the foot of the famous Coniston Old Man fell (From where you get superb views of Coniston Water and Lake Windermere) and nearby to the Grizedale Forest. The village has a welcoming feel and traditional Lake District warmth to it; visitors will find plenty of shops and cafes in which to relax while they soak up the scenery and gentle pace of life.

A popular centre for walkers, climbers and cyclists, the area is also well known for Coniston Water; setting for the famous children’s story, Swallows and Amazons. Nowadays the Victorian steam yacht ‘Gondola’ which first went into service in 1859 and was restored in 1977 by the National Trust, plies the five miles of water from April to October. You can hire rowing boats, electric boats, kayaks and dinghies from Coniston Boating Centre on the lakeshore.

Take the opportunity to visit the Ruskin Museum, for local history, and ‘Brantwood’ on the shores of Coniston Water, former home to the poet John Ruskin.

10 miles north from the lodge is Ambleside with its many shops and fantastic atmosphere and just south from Ambleside you can visit Windermere and take the ferry back to Far Sawry, which is only 4 miles from the Lodge this way!!!

It's best to get around by car in the Lake District. You can easily drive to Far Sawry and take the ferry to Windermere.

About the Windermere Ferry

The Windermere Ferry has been operating for more than 500 years. The original craft were rowed across the lake, later ferries were steam driven and the most recent ones have had diesel engines. The current ferry 'Mallard' is the largest so far; a modern craft which carries up to 18 cars and over 100 passengers.

The ferry takes people, vehicles, horses and cycles across the lake, reducing traffic on the surrounding narrow roads and easing congestion and pollution. It also links the busy eastern shore of the lake and the peaceful countryside between Windermere and Coniston on the west, where there are many attractions and facilities for walking, riding and cycling.

Disponible para huéspedes

Hi you will have sole access to the lodge, we are not on site when you are there. Just outside the lodge are two public footpaths (hardly used by anybody) which lead to fantastic walks to Rusland or into the Grizedale forest. No smoking inside the lodge please. My husband lives in the lodge during the week for work, but we will not be there when you are there!

Atención a los huéspedes

There are loads of leaflets and maps available in the lodge to help you chose how to best spend you time whilst there. Please feel free to use any of our maps. We also have a compass which is worth taking out whilst on longer walks.

This is our second stay at the lodge (first time being with our friends) and was the perfect spot for a family getaway. The lodge is well equipped and the ideal location if you like to be remote. There are plenty of walkable routes around the lodge- we didn't have to take the car out. The Eagles Head is about 20 minute walk away and a lovely place to enjoy a beer after a long walk. Would highly recommend and hope to visit again in the future.

Brilliant stay at Marianne's place! The cabin is beautiful! Very cosy and homely feel. The location is very quiet and peaceful, amazing country views! Beds are huge and v comfortable! We saw deers, foxes, bats and owls from the terrace. Also a great place for seeing the stars on a night as there is so little light pollution. We were all extremely happy with our stay. Thankyou Marianne!

Dear Harriet thanks very much for your review and I am delighted you saw deers and foxes, haven't seen one of those. And whilst I have heard the owl, I haven't seen him but my husband has. So brilliant to hear you had a great stay, thanks again for booking.

Marianne's home is the perfect Lake District getaway. It is quiet and secluded but within a 15 minute drive of shops and pubs. It also helped that Marianne was super easy to communicate with, and her home is beautiful. We would 100% stay here again.

My friends and I stayed at the lodge for a weekend and I only have positive things to say about it. It is a great place to relax and enjoy the countryside from. Marianne was an excellent host, replying quickly to messages and providing comprehensive directions and instructions which ensured the stay ran smoothly. I'd love to go back for longer!

We started our road trip from london with 4 adults and 2 kids - teenagers and have to admit, wished we had more time at this place. Absolutely loved it and so did the teenage boys. The place was immaculate, clean with every detail factored in for amenities... The place was quite welcoming, warm, comfortable and truly enjoyable.

It was great to welcome guests from India. It turns out Lalima, that I think we have met at our home in Pansheel Park which made the experience even more special! All the best to you and your family!

HI I am a Photographer and I love travelling. Our family lived in India for three years from 2011 till 2014, so you will see loads of little Indian touches in our Lodge. In India I self-published a photo book about a new town called Gurgaon. I love browsing through photography books! And I love reading novels in English and Dutch as I was born near Maastricht in the Netherlands.

We would love to welcome you to our new lodge, where you can get away from everyday life and completely relax and enjoy the sound of silence as you will not be able to hear any cars as the lodge is away from the main road leading up to Grizedale visitor centre.
