There are various walking routes to explore here, as well as a National Trust owned 18th century home on the edge of the lake.

Our glorious resort is embedded in the heart of the region, with easy driving access to these many scenic locations and visitor attractions including the Keswick Railway Path and also Keswick museum; these are just two of the many great family friendly attractions which we would recommend in the area around the resort making it the perfect location to enjoy fun filled Lake District holidays.

After a busy day exploring the region, you will welcome the opportunity to put your feet up and enjoy the comfortable yet stylish furnishings that our holiday lodges are equipped with.

Thanet Well Lodge Retreat

Thanet Well Lodge Retreat

Thanet Well Lodge Retreat – Lake District

Thanet Well Lodge Retreat is a stunning resort located on the edge of Greystoke Forest in a quiet secluded area of Cumbria. Our grounds team work hard throughout the year to ensure that our resort blends into the natural surroundings, making it the perfect place to connect with nature and escape everyday stresses.

Our park facilities include an adventure playground and reception area, but are far more limited than at some of our other resorts including Keswick Reach. That is because the retreat is designed for complete peace and relaxation so you can escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life; perfect for anyone looking for relaxing Lake District holidays.

However, Thanet Well Lodge Retreat is perfectly situated to allow full exploration of both the Lake District and the many attractions which Cumbria in general has to offer. There are countless scenic walking routes around the area and you don’t have to travel far for activities. Greystoke Forest is a stunning area, so Thanet Well Lodge Retreat is the perfect place to stay if you are looking for walking holidays in the Lake District. Some of the most popular walking locations nearby include Coniston Water which is the third largest lake in the Lake District being five miles long and half a mile wide. It was at this location that Sir Malcolm Campbell attempted numerous world water speed records in the middle of the last century with his famous Bluebird machines.

Another popular walking destination with our holiday makers is Scafell Pike which is the highest mountain in England and is part of the Lake District National Park.

Children are also catered for at Thanet Well Lodge Retreat with a playground on park. There are also various family friendly attractions in the region including The Rheged Heritage Centre which has something for all ages with a cinema, various restaurants, an extensive shopping district, play areas and also hosts various exhibitions and festivals throughout the year. This is just one of the many family friendly places to visit in the area, so the kids are unlikely to ever get bored.

  • We've just had a fabulous week at Thanet Well. The staff were so friendly & helpful. John and Lisa went that extra mile when we lost something very precious. The lodge was more comfortable than our own home. We loved the fact it was 'out in the sticks' and the views were spectacular. We really didn't want to come home but would definitely book again. The lodge was a little plain, it could have done with some pictures on the wall and my husband commented he would have liked a slightly bigger television. My son also said he wished the...

  • We have been coming to Thanet Well now for a number of years and we would never stay anywhere else in the Lake District and we return here at least once a year, sometimes twice. The lodges are beautiful, with everything you need and are very clean and spacious. The staff are all very friendly and know us by name now. We are returning in October 2016 and cannot wait! I would highly recommend this holiday park to anyone looking for a peaceful, tranquil break in the Lake...

  • We have just come home from a 4 night stay here and it was just beautiful. Totally amazed by the cleanliness of the modern lodges. Our first little holiday away since we got our puppy (he is 15 weeks old) and he loved the surroundings also. The views were surreal and would love to come back with all the family. Perfect place!!...
