Set in 18 acres of beautiful natural grounds and woodland, this charming wooden holiday lodge has its own private garden along with shared use of an indoor heated plunge pool, sauna, Jacuzzi and table tennis table.

It is a perfect base for touring and exploring the footpaths in the area with numerous woodland and hill walks straight from the door. Great for wildlife lovers, with deer and other animals freely wandering through this small, select woodland retreat. The Lake District Visitor Centre near Windermere is worth a visit (activities include high ropes, horse riding etc), as is the nearby water sports centre on Windermere. Pub and restaurant ¼ mile.

It’s a great retreat so relaxing we loved it our lodge Elterwater was fantastic it had everything you need can’t fault it Neaum Crag is so nice wish we could have stayed longer. If I had any downs about our week it’s a pity there is no shop it would be nice to get things like milk and other daily needs without having to drive into Ambleside, I know people that take dogs should know that you have to pick up after them but I think it would be a good idea if they put signs up around the park as some people had not cleaned up, Neaum Crag is a great place to stay if your a walker there are some beautiful views it was nice to see all traffic driving slow on the site it was a pleasure walking around and our two little dogs had a great time. Thank to the owners of Elterwater Lodge and Neaum Crag for a lovely week.

The roads into neaum Crag are bad, no cushions for outside seating beds not comfortable, comfortable seating inside with a nice kitchen, takes a while to find where all the switches are to work everything, but all said we still had a nice holiday, lovely surroundings. Alan and Kathy.
