If you're looking for that ideal escape to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the beautiful Lake District, then Blencathra Lodge is the perfect place to be. Only 10 minutes from the M6 Motorway, we are perfectly situated so that you can enjoy this wonderful part of the country. Set in the award winning gardens of Stafford House, itself an enchanting Grade 2 Listed "Folly" and nestling in the magnificent grounds of Greystoke Castle, your pets are more than welcome to stay with you too!
Hilltop Lodge is a beautiful detached timber building set in enclosed garden (perfect for dogs). It's open plan, with a wood-burning stove to keep you warm on an evening, with well-equipped modern kitchen and dining area. It has large windows with lots of natural light. The garden is abundant in wildlife throughout the year, and has a lovely terrace to sit out on. It’s a great base for relaxing, enjoying wildlife, adventuring, or being creative. An 11am check-out will add to the relaxed feel.
We are now in our third year since renovating this 17th century cottage and I guarantee you will enjoy what we have created. We have tried to keep the character of the original building and yet be fresh and appealing for you to enjoy.The space is clean, contemporary yet cosy with all modern day comforts and king size bed to accommodate 2 guests. Skelton is a quiet village handy for M6 motorway and north lakes so is quick and easy to get to and has a pub "The Dog and Gun" serving great food.
