All aboard…Sit back, relax and get ready for a unique experience on-board The Rocking Lodge whilst enjoying spectacular views of Blencathra and easy access to Keswick.
You’re in for a surprise when you board the rocking lodge. On the face of it, a beautifully designed and compact lodge, but, at the flick of a switch, the whole lodge smoothly and gently rocks back and forth. You’ve got to try it to believe it!
On the lower slopes of Blencathra, famous for having six separate fell tops and one of the most imposing views in The Lake District National Park, this unique lodge is a great choice for your next Cumbrian adventure. Situated on a working beef and sheep farm this purpose built lodge was designed with couples in mind. With private parking and a lovely outside seating area you can soak up the sun while enjoying the impressive views of this iconic mountain.
The open plan lodge is compact but expertly designed to deliver everything you’ll need for a memorable stay. It is well-equipped and features a modern kitchenette. On offer is a comfortable sofa, perfect for snuggling in front of the flat screen TV, double bed and just off the living area is a small but modern bathroom. You’ll love the cosy feel of this lodge, perfect if you’re looking for a romantic getaway.
The villages of Scales and Threlkeld are just over a mile away and offer three great pubs serving food and local cask ales. Directly opposite is Keswick Golf Club and 5 miles away is the popular market town of Keswick, bustling with bars, restaurants and great shopping as well as lots of tourist attractions including The Theatre By The Lake offering award winning arts and drama in an enviable position on the shores of Derwent water. Visit the Derwent Pencil museum, home to the world’s largest pencil or if you fancy something slightly different, check out Puzzling Place, a museum full of mind bending optical illusions.
Cyclists, walkers and climbers will love the freedom of the iconic Lakeland Fells nearby. The area has many walking routes taking in much of the picturesque scenery. However, if you’re looking for a bigger challenge, Keswick and Derwent Water is a great starting point for many of Wainwright’s 214 Lakeland Fells including Latrigg and Catbells. Shop 4½ miles, pub ¾ mile and restaurant 1¼ miles.
