This authentic, detached timber lodge offers the perfect ingredients for a romantic and relaxing break on the lower slopes of Blencathra, one of the most impressive fells in the Lake District National Park. Situated on a working beef and sheep farm, this cute lodge was designed with couples in mind. It is well equipped and comes complete with its own private hot tub, so you can take a dip and indulge in some relaxation underneath the night sky. The south-facing outdoor patio area with garden furniture is a great place to soak up the sun, and offers the seclusion and privacy your romantic break deserves. The ground floor is all open plan and has a well-equipped kitchen and breakfast bar, which overlooks a cosy living room with a comfortable two-seater sofa and flat screen TV. Just off the living room is a small but high spec shower room. Upstairs, you will find a cosy bedroom with timber beams and a feature bed.

Threlkeld is a small village just off the A66, which is the main route between Penrith and Keswick. Almost directly opposite is Keswick Golf Club, so if you fancy a round while you’re away, you could not be much closer. The quaint village of Scales, along with a couple of local pubs offering great food and local cask ales, is just a mile away. The lodge is just 5 miles from the vibrant Lake District town of Keswick, which is brimming with great restaurants, pubs serving local craft ales, an excellent range of shopping experiences and some memorable tourist attractions. If you fancy something a bit different, then why not visit The Derwent Pencil Museum, home to the world’s largest pencil. Also within easy reach is Puzzling Place, which is full of mind-boggling optical illusions. If you like culture, you could try the Theatre by the Lake, with its enviable position on the shores of Derwentwater, which offers award-winning performances in drama and arts.

If you like walking or cycling, you are surrounded by some of the most challenging fells in the area, as well as a number of less challenging walking routes suitable for people who like sightseeing without the strain. Keswick is at the northern end of Derwentwater, one of the area’s iconic lakes, and offers a great base and starting point for many an adventure. You can tick off a few of Wainwright’s 214 Lakeland Fells, including Skiddaw, Blencathra and Helvellyn within a few miles’ radius. Whatever the reason for your visit, Lucy’s Lodge offers a great base, inspiring surroundings and a touch of quirkiness to make your next Lake District getaway one to remember. Shop 4½ miles, pub ¾ mile and restaurant 1¼ miles.
Lucy’s Lodge can be booked with Harrison’s Lodge (ref UK1259), Grajo Cottage (UK1284), Darci’s Lodge (UK1297), Derwent Dale Cottage (UK1334), Brackendale (UK1335), Shepherd’s Bield (UK1349), Doddick Chase Cottage (UK1363) and The Rocking Lodge (UK11517) to accommodate up to 30 guests.

    A lovely lodge with the added luxury of a hot tub. A few issues with things still not being fixed despite others highlighting these issues months before we stayed

    We had a lovely time at the cottage which was mainly a place to relax in the evening and was even better having a hot tub for our sore muscles after walking all day!! Some people may find the low ceiling in the bedroom a bit annoying but this is just a place to sleep! The shower had loads of functions for massage back and feet but it didn’t work but it was still lovely. The fridge was missing a shelf on the door which was mentioned a few times in the guest book. The decor of the lodge is cute and modern and we had everything we needed for self catering. It’s about 10 minute drive from Keswick which has a pricey supermarket and the nearest Morrison’s is in Penrith which is a bit further out! It’s within an hour from all the lovely places to explore but still with beautiful scenery and places to walk and see. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to our friends and family! Thanks :)

    Great little get away for me and my girlfriend. We spent 4 nights in Lucy's Lodge which was very confortable and cosy. The surrounding areas were very pleasant and would definitely return in the future at some point.

    Absolutely breathtaking views! Climbed Blencathra, a nearby mountain which was extraordinary. Very clean lodge on arrival, did find someone’s boxers under the bed though.. all cooking appliances provided, hot tub was brilliant at the end of each day! Shame about the jets in the shower not working. Booking again for the end of the year. Most relaxing place and everyone very friendly! We loved it!

    Had a lovely break away for valentines. Very private and quiet which is lovely. The views are breath taking, the lodge had everything we needed. We will be recommending to friends and family as well as we will be returning in the near future.

    We really had a lovely couple of days in Lucy’s Lodge. It was lovely and clean, pretty much everything you need was provided in the lodge. Only down falls were how cold it was due to only having one small radiator. Also we booked the hot tub as it said it was a private hot tub, however when we got back from having our tea at the pub the people in the next lodge were in the hot tub... It was very awkward and we had to wait for them to get out for us to be able to use it. The following night the man from that lodge came and peered round the back of the lodge to see if we were in the hot tub which was.
