Set in the ancient woodland of the Lake District's Whicham Valley, these stylish Scandinavian lodges are overlooked by the stunning Blackcombe and Whitecombe hills. The scenery here is inspiring with unspoilt natural beauty and green fells, while the lakes, mountains and forests of the Lake District offer wonderful opportunities for walking, cycling, riding and sailing.
The facilities are superb with an indoor heated swimming pool and a wonderful spa offering a full range of relaxing and rejuvenating treatments - they'll even come to your lodge! There are aqua aerobics classes and a children's play gym. Plus you're spoilt for choice with two very nice restaurants - for fine dining head to Clara's, for everyday meals, Pesto bar and bistro is not to be missed.

I would love to stay in the same lodge again it was perfect for us.
Very warm welcome from staff, they could not do enough for us whilst we was there, spacious, clean and well equiped lodge.
Excellent could not fault, wonderful setting and staff couldnâ€™t do more to help. Definitely recommend and will be returning.
Had a great new year break at brockwood hall
Lovely place great welcomenpacket would come here again for sure we loved it staff was very nice and helpful too
We booked 2 lodges for my son's 40th birthday, in between Christmas and New Year. The lodges were lovely, well furnished and very warm. The indoor pool was great and the hot tubs were great. We booked 2 meals in the Restaurant but both times, they did not have our first choice of food, which was disappointing. They also did not have a wine list in the restaurant so we didn't know how much the wine was without asking, which is a bit embarrassing. Apart from that, everything was very nice.
Fantastic break, fantastic place. One very small gripe is that the adults menu was very limited and they run out of a couple of things on that limited menu.
Lovely cabin. Amazing staff. Beautiful surrounding area.
Millom has all the basics you need for a holiday. Lovely quiet area. Haverigg beach is great for dogs, Silecroft too if you don't mind the stones.
Food in the restaurant was lovely, a bit expensive maybe but no complaints.
10 mins drive to Millom, 30 mins to Coniston, 40 mins to Barrow. Everything you need from beaches to shops to mountain walks and nature reserves all within 45 mins driving max.
A lovely area and a lovely cabin to spend the week.
The best Christmas break I've had in years
Absolutely brilliant could not fault in anyway or form would love to come back the future beautiful part of Britain thanks again
This is an amazing Cumbria attraction well known locally as well as nationally for how close you can get to the animals. Described as the most interactive animal park in Europe it's well worth a visit if you are staying in the area. Open from April to end October some of the highlights are the tigers, penguins, bears, hippos and rhinos. At 2pm during certain seasons it's feeding time so don't forget to plan your day around this so you can watch the animals enjoying their feed. Look out for seasonal events such as Halloween Zoo Boo (free entry for kids in fancy dress) and The Magic of Christmas.
Rydal Mount & Gardens are wonderfully situated between Lake Windermere and Rydal Water offering breathtaking scenery. The home of William Wordsworth from 1813 - 1850 the grand home is now lived in by the poets descendents but parts of the house and grounds are open to the public. Why not take a guided tour and see the rooms where many of the famous poems were written. The gardens are beautiful at all times of the year but in the summer offer a spectacular display of colour. There is also a gallery and a tearoom. Discounts are available for group bookings.
Happy Mount Park has attractions for the whole family including several play areas, a miniature railway, crazy golf, putting green and trampolines, there is also a paddling pool where the little ones can splash around in the summer and a café where the adults can relax with a drink. During the summer months and especially during school holidays live music can often be enjoyed.
Here at the Wildlife Oasis you can really get up close to the animals and experience a mix of exotic wildlife and hand son displays. See butterflies, birds and even bats flying around. You don't have to plan your visit according to weather either with the tropical hall and butterfly house undercover. Sunny days are ideal for some of the inhabitants however with the monkeys and Lemurs loving to sunbathe. The mission of Lakeland's Wildlife Oasis is to engender and foster an interest and appreciation of the natural world which, in our belief underpins wildlife conservation; and, where possible to contribute and encourage contribution to the conservation of wildlife and wild places. You know that you are helping with this mission if you choose to visit.
