Run away to the woods and hide out in this isolated log cabin nestled deep amongst the trees. This eco friendly cabin, made from local wood by a local farmer offers the perfect secluded hideaway, that is truly at one with its natural surroundings. Sit in the wood fired hot tub outside on the deck and relax whilst spotting roe deer, otters and kingfishers darting in and out of the beautiful local fauna as the river trickles by in the background. With National Trust walks right on your doorstep, Shank Wood Log Cabin is a fantastic place from which to explore the beautiful wildlife that surrounds you. Stroll among the trees, venture into every nook and cranny of the wood or stop by the river and cast your rod for some peaceful fishing. The beautiful rustic cabin, which is near the market town of Longtown just north of Carlisle, offers up a true respite from the hum drum of daily life. With only two electrical sockets, powered by solar panels, your stay won’t be interrupted by the TV or internet. Lounge in the comfortable living space with a book by the log fire, or sit out on the deck and watch the sun set behind the trees leaving you with a clear starry sky overhead. The nearest phone signal is a ten minute walk away, meaning Shank Wood Log Cabin really is a truly secluded retreat. Cook up some lovely locally sourced food on the outdoor BBQ with side hob and dine either outside or in. After dinner retreat to the living space for a game of cards before retiring to the upstairs mezzanine floor, which comfortably sleeps four people in two double beds. Outside there is a private bathroom pod that has its own hot shower, toilet and sink. The gorgeous and simplistic interior of log walls, wooden beams and dark stone flooring, give this fabulous bolthole its character and ensures that it is a truly unique and authentic living space. As well as the ancient private woodland and wonderful fishing opportunities that sit right on your doorstep, outdoor enthusiasts who venture further afield will not be disappointed. The breathtaking Lake District National Park is a 50 minute drive away and has plenty of hiking, cycling and horse riding opportunities. Carlisle, Brampton and Longtown are nearby for those of you who want to go for a stroll around some shops before getting a pint and a glass of wine.

Spend your day wandering the outstanding countryside that surrounds you, then hop in your hot tub with a glass of wine and enjoy a bit of peace and quiet in style. The open plan, main living space is filled with natural light thanks to its large windows, and there’s a wood-burning stove to keep you nice and toasty in the colder months. You’ll be pleased to hear that the interior design of the cottage stays true to the local style, with whitewashed walls, rustic exposed beams and that wonderful farmhouse feel.

    Stay Lambing Live is a sumptuously converted barn surrounded by atmospheric moorland, gorgeous rolling hillsides and quaint stone villages. The interior of this property showcases the beautiful limestone that this area is famous for - from the handcrafted tiles in the hallway and bathrooms, to an impressive stone fireplace in the lounge. Beautiful raw materials and skilled workmanship really shine throughout this property, setting this exquisite barn in a league of its own. Set on a 400 acre farm, you are warmly welcomed to roll up your sleeves and get involved with life on the farm. Help feed the animals up on the moors or even experience lambing first-hand.

Whichever route you take, this property is a pastoral dream come true. The charming limestone tile flooring in the hallway gives you a glimpse of the incredible quality of workmanship in this property. And with underfloor heating throughout the ground floor you can be assured of a warm welcome. The three double en suite bedrooms all have large luxurious beds, soft linens and handsome oak furniture.

And with a television and well-stocked bookshelf, there’s plenty to keep everyone entertained. Although with such magnificent panoramic views, you may just be content gazing out of the window. Out in the garden there’s oak garden furniture, a fire pit and BBQ - perfect for summertime evenings with friends and family. In the immediate local area there are breathtaking walks for all levels - from riverside strolls to hikes across the moors. The local market town of Kirkby Stephens is even Cumbria’s first ‘Walkers are Welcome’ town. With delightful cafes, great pubs and plentiful farmer’s markets dotted around, it’s a magnificent area to explore. And with the Lake District just ten minutes down the road, you have two National Parks to choose from.

  • Netherby Treehouse

    • 2 nights min stay

    Cute as they come and with views out to the Scottish border, the Netherby Estate Treehouse is the place to be for a Cumbrian adventure. The River Esk is the soothing backdrop for this elevated luxury cabin that comes with its own hot tub and sits around seven miles from Gretna Green. The treehouse enjoys a secluded spot on the estate, with fields and parkland extending all around. You will immediately appreciate the tranquil atmosphere, with little more than the burble of the river and the baa of nearby sheep to trouble you. The open-plan interior packs in a wood-burner and a cosy corner to curl up with a book or enjoy a meal. A kitchen with modern oven, a sink and all the bits and pieces you will need makes it easy to prepare one, and there’s another space to sit down and dine out on the balcony. A welcome hamper ensures there will be something to get you started on arrival. Netherby Estate Treehouse makes clever use of its space to accommodate up to four guests. You have a double bed in the main living area, and a mezzanine level above has a further two single beds, ideal for children, accessed via a ladder. Everyone will be warm and comfy as the wood-burning stove does its business – and the bedding and soft furnishings are rather nice too. This is the perfect spot to put on your walking boots and head out to explore the Cumbrian countryside. You are likely to see plenty of deer before you even leave the estate. The border location gives you the chance to discover beautiful areas of two countries – you’re only 30 miles from Dumfries to the west, and delights of the Solway Coast are closer still. To the north-east, the expansive Kielder Forest will enchant lovers of the outdoor lifestyle, and you’re only 30 minutes from the North Pennines. The city of Carlisle, around 16 miles from the estate, has historic attractions including a medieval castle – and, of course, Hadrian’s Wall just a short distance away. Days out at Carlisle Racecourse or the Talkin Tarn Country Park (perfect for walking, cycling and water-sports), will provide plenty of holiday memories.

    • 2 nights min low season 3 nights high & Weekends

    Found in a secluded spot between the Lake District and the Scottish border, the Hidden River Cabins are large and luxurious – perfect for getting away to rural Cumbria in style. Make your choice from five incredible log-built lodges in peaceful surroundings, each sleeping between six and ten guests. On the banks of the River Lyne, these eco-friendly cabins sit comfortably amongst nature. Each cabin is kept cosy with a combination of solar power and a wood-burning stove. The countryside setting makes them the perfect place for pets to unwind too, so it’s a real plus that dogs are welcome at each of the Hidden River Cabins. All cabins are equipped with a hot tub looking out over the river, and an outdoor seating area for dining and relaxing. There are three cabins which sleep six: Roe Deer, Otterstone and Kingfisher, which feature two double bedrooms and a sofa-bed. All have that unmistakable log cabin ambience, from the modern bathroom to the fully equipped kitchen and a comfortable living area, complete with TV and DVD. Two larger cabins, Bluebell and Foxglove, add a pair of twin rooms to the mix, making them ideal for groups of up to ten. Two of the bedrooms have a TV and these two cabins benefit from the luxury of underfloor heating. If you fancy getting social around a barbecue when the weather is fine, you can rent one for the duration of your stay at any of the cabins. From the great fishing location of the Otterstone cabin to Kingfisher’s elevated river view, every one of these lodges is in a beautiful position. They’re all kitted out with luxury bed linens, duvets and logs for the wood burner, so all you need do is turn up and make yourself comfortable. Hidden River Cabins lie around 11 miles from the city of Carlisle and even closer to the edge of the magnificent Kielder Forest Park which stretches to the border of England and Scotland. Exploring the best of the borders is easy, with the likes of Gretna Green, Carlisle Castle and the Solway Coast not far away. The area is great for all kinds of activities too, from paintballing to flying and 4x4 off-roading… or perhaps you would prefer the simple pleasures of walks in the woods or down by the river. Be sure to drop by the Hidden River Café too, where there is always something tasty being cooked up, whatever the time of day.
