A dream for couples or families, this cosy pine lodge nestles amongst peaceful woodland on the private Neaum Crag Estate at the head of the spectacular Langdale Valley. Built from polished wood inside and out, Tarn Hows will make a special base for your holiday. You'll love returning from exploring the walking paths nearby, for a drink on the patio surrounded by the sounds of the forest, or a dip in the private pool with Jacuzzi and sauna nearby ( approx. 150yds) What a perfect escape. Whip up a tasty home cooked meal before a cosy night in, or why not head out to one of the lovely traditional pubs at Skelwith Bridge or Elterwater?

Accommodation in detail

Private parking for 1 car. Enter to the open plan lounge/kitchen/dining room. The kitchen has plenty of storage, electric oven with extractor, microwave and fridge with freezer compartment, all wrapped up in granite worktops. Two large leather sofas and TV/DVD and dining table and space for the foldaway bed. The double bedroom also has a louvre door wardrobe built in and there is a decent sized single bedroom. The bathroom has a traditional three-piece suite with modern shower over bath. Table and chairs on spacious decking outside.

Sitting amongst peaceful woodland on a private estate between Ambleside and Coniston, Tarn Hows is the perfect location for a relaxing break in the Lake District. You are guaranteed quiet and seclusion, yet with some of the most popular attractions in the Lakes within easy driving distance. A holiday cottage near the Langdale Valley is an obvious choice for keen hikers and climbers. From the valley you can hike to England's highest tarn, or take on the spectacular Jake's Rake ridge as you tick off the famous three; Harrison Stickle, Pike of Stickle and Loft Crag. The neighbouring Wasdale and Borrowdale Valleys are traditional starting points for an ascent of Scafell Pike.

Ambleside is just a few miles away and the ideal place to stock up the kitchen on your way. The vibrant village centre is well worth a visit; lazing in cafes, visiting historic sites such as the roman fort, or strolling to Lake Windermere for a lake cruise to Bowness or Lakeside. Ambleside tourist information centre is a useful port of call for walking routes, and there are plenty of expert outdoor stores where advice will be on hand.

A host of excellent Lake District country pubs are dotted throughout the Langdale Valley, serving locally brewed ale and hearty food. If you're looking for a special evening out, sample the Glass House in Ambleside or seek out the famous Drunken Duck Inn and Restaurant in Outgate.

"Perfect chalet and get away from busy lives!"

The Chalet was perfect for what we wanted. Somewhere quiet and relaxing to get away, but not being too isolated that you couldn't walk to the nearest pub or town. The owner is very helpful and the chalet was immaculate and very homely. We would highly recommend staying at Tarn Hows.
