Description from owner


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, all wrapped up in granite style worktops. Two large leather sofas and TV/DVD and dining table. A high chair is provided. The double bedroom also has a louvre door built in wardrobe. There is a decent sized single bedroom fitted with bunk beds with room for a travel cot. The bathroom has a traditional three-piece suite with modern shower over bath to enable you to have a good soak after a days walking. 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.

I love self catering and this had great facilities. The cooker was clean and everything was easy to find. The accommodation was comfortable except there was a moldy smell in the double bedroom and on the shower door (which I cleaned before bathing). I can understand this as it is under the glade of the trees and the weather doesn't help. There was great array of information on hand and nice and pleasant lounge area with freeview tv. Please don't take my comments as criticism as overall it was a very pleasant stay and the heating and water facilities were spot on. I would book again in future.

Owner's reply: Hi John, Thanks for your kind words - they are very much appreciated. Kind regards, Mark

“Lovely relaxing Holiday”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2019

Great cabin on a lovely site. The cabin itself was very well equipped, with everything we needed, including all cooking equipment, utensils, bedding and towels. Nice selection of DVDs in the cabin. Bedrooms were comfortable and the cabin overall was very clean and well looked after. The outside area is lovely and we saw a red squirrel on our first day there! The pool on site is a 2 minute walk away and again very clean and well looked after. There is a lovely pub and restaurant a 5 minute walk away. Locally there are lots of lovely walks and we will definitely look to return next year. The owner Mark was really helpful and answered any queries we had very quickly.

“Perfect chalet and get away from busy lives!”

Reviewed 26 May 2014

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.
