Why Choose Cumbria?

Cumbria is one of the most popular areas of the UK when it comes to staycations.

It is also a popular destination with international visitors thanks to its wondrous countryside and wide variety of visitor attractions where you are sure to find something for all ages and all members of the family; even the furry ones.

If you haven’t been here before, you will soon understand its popularity when you do visit the area. Our two retreats are perfect located to enable you to take full advantage of everything that this wonderful part of the UK has to offer with its legendary scenic walking routes, breathtaking countryside and array of family oriented visitor attractions including the fabulous Beatrix Potter Museum which is simply a must see for families with young children.

Thanet Well Lodge Retreat

Our most well established resort in the region is the 5 star rated Thanet Well Lodge Retreat which is located near Greystoke Forest.

There isn’t much in the way of facilities here, it is all about peace and tranquility in an idyllic setting with lodges given a prime position so you can enjoy uninterrupted views of the surrounding fells and countryside from your private decking area.

The decking areas which come with the top of the range lodges we offer here are equipped with their own private hot tub facilities – a must book if you are looking for unrivaled luxury. If there are any hot tub equipped lodges available to book above, we’d recommend getting in their quickly as these tend to get snapped up. This is why we don’t often have last minute holidays in Cumbria available in these premier lodges.

The facilities which we have available on the park are purposefully limited because the aim here is to create a relaxing sanctuary where you can escape the stresses of everyday life. It is also a great location for walking holidays, with a plethora of scenic walking routes available in the nearby region including Coniston Water.

Of course, if you want to do more than walking there is plenty to do in the local area visitor attraction wise. Lakeland Bird of Prey Centre is nearby and offers the chance to see the majestic birds in flight and try your hand at handling. For something more laid back, visit Lowther Castle and gardens, where you can take a casual stroll around the estate and marvel at the castle ruins, it is also pet-friendly, perfect for those planning on bringing their four-legged friend to Thanet Well!

Keswick Reach Lodge Retreat

Darwin Escapes is a brand which is synonymous with excellence and there is no better example of this than at Keswick Reach Lodge Retreat.

First opened in 2016, this fabulous resort has been named the best holiday park in the UK by Hoseasons for two years consecutively due to the quality of the lodge accommodation and unrivaled 5 star facilities on-site which includes the tranquil Ammara Spa, Jacuzzi pool, steam room and unique panoramic sauna where you can sit back and admire the beautiful countryside surroundings for which Keswick Reach is so renowned.

Our holiday makers are also able to take advantage of the exclusive eatery Copper Fells Bar & Bistro which serves class leading cuisine prepared using local ingredients. Costa Coffee is also served here in case you just fancy a coffee or a break in between walks.

The lodges in Keswick Reach are up to a very similar standard to those which are available at Thanet Well, with lavish décor and an array of holiday home comforts including Freeview enabled TVs and Wi-Fi internet access. The décor does differ slightly to that which has been employed at Thanet Well, but this is in keeping with the character of the resort and is equally as luxurious. Our Keswick lodges are also fully equipped for self catering with modern integrated kitchens. All you will need to do is bring your food supplies, some of which can be purchased from our on-site shop.

Occasionally the hot tub lodges in Keswick Reach may become available to book for last minute holidays in Cumbria. However, these lodges are massively popular so are likely to get snapped up quickly.
