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.
