Finished to a high standard, the Lodges are in perfect keeping with their surroundings.

A warm and friendly welcome awaits all of our guests. And in the morning if you don’t feel like cooking your own breakfast, we can offer to set you up for the rest of the day by cooking breakfast for you using only the best locally sourced produce. We can also prepare a packed lunch for you to take away.

There are two self-catering units, Blencathra Lodge which sleeps 4-5 people, and Pennine Lodge which can sleep 10 people. Both have fully fitted kitchens and wet rooms with a basin and toilet. Blencathra Lodge has also been fitted with handrails in the wet room to enable partially disabled guests to stay with us. The beds are bunk beds complete with all your linen and towels, however in Pennine Lodge there are two single beds which has its own private facilities, as well as a further room which sleeps 8 people again with its own wet room, basin and toilet, the kitchen is shared between these two bedrooms.

We are also able to offer Wi Fii, just in case you have something on your laptop that just won’t wait.
