The 2.5 acres of gardens at Ashwater House are a mix of lawned areas, flower beds, and wild areas, surrounding a 0.5 acre private lake. The play area is available for any children between the ages of 3 and 12, under parental supervision, along with a sand pit and wendy house with outside toys.
Swallow Lodge is situated on the side of the private lake, close to the jetty, a haven for all sorts of wildlife.
Well behaved dogs are welcome at a small charge, but we ask owners to clear up after their pets, and to ensure they do not jump on the furniture, or to provide covers if they do, and bring their own food bowls.
The Heart of England / Peak District / Lincolnshire region
The cottage is set in two acres of grounds, with a private lake, and many flower beds and features. The children's play area boasts a wooden play house full of outside toys, with a swing seat for parents to relax on whilst fun is had. Guests may walk all the way around the lake, with seats along the way, or stop to feed the fish, moorhens and ducks, and see if you can catch a glimpse of our resident kingfisher.
The Louth area
Louth is called 'The Capital of The Wolds', a beautiful Georgian market town, which many claim has a feeling of the past about it, with speciality cheese, poultry, fruit & vegetables and meat shops. Majestically rising above the town, St James' spire, 500 years old and 295 feet high, is often your first glimpse of Louth. As you get closer its warm stone contrasts with the red brick and pantiles of the houses. A concoction of different styles in an intricate network of streets. Altogether a satisfying blend.
The town stands directly on the Meridian line at 0°, so bridging two hemispheres, and on the River Lud, a more visible divide. Not much has changed here. The ancient market square echoes to the traders' cries as they offer their wares, there’s the produce auction, the cattle market - its a perfect microcosm of rural life.
Louth is built in a wealth of styles, and is a melange of masonry to delight and fascinate. Discover Tennyson's legacy, and there’s a lively arts programme to be enjoyed, from drama to dance, classics to rock, recitals to readings - take the Louth Arts Tour and enjoy.

Swallow Cabin part of Ashwater House log cabins is a lovely place to stay. The cabin is very spacious (big enough for 2 adults, 2 young children and a puppy). We stayed there in February and it was warm enough for us. There are plenty of places to go, even with a dog. Northcote Heavy Horse centre, Natureland Seal place and lots of walks to keep the children having fun and entertained - just remember your water proofs and wellies. The kitchen had everything that we needed, although a few more plastic cups/plates for feeding the children would be handy. The children loved the tuck shop and couldn't believe that they could walk to the tuck shop, choose their own dvds and we didn't have to pay for them. What a great idea, especially the little fridge and honesty box. This made the children feel really grown up, to be choosing their own treat. We have already booked to go back as we really didn't want to come home. We can't wait.
