Great week in the Lakes
The log cabin is in a great location, v central in the lakes. Coniston, Ambleside etc are a stone's throw away. The site has a small pool and jacuzzi which our whole family enjoyed. It's a peaceful site with lively walks from the cabin to a tarn and waterfall. Beautiful. Hopefully we'll return soon! ☺️
Beautiful cabin in the woods!
We thoroughly enjoy our stay in Ullswater cabin at Crag Neaum. Perfectly equipt cabin, lovely and tranquil. Pool was good, Plenty to do in area for kids, lots of lovely walks. Thanks for a lovely stay! Would love to visit again!
Happy to see you enjoyed your stay at out cabin we do our best to make it as comfortable as possible, we look forward to seeing you next year. John.
Fantastic situation, terrific accommodation
The peace and quiet around the cabin and site were great for the holiday. A treat waking amongst the flora and fauna. Close enough to Ambleside to be convenient but far enough to be out of the hustle and bustle. Some great walks from the site and easy access to quieter roads to reach other great spots. The cabin had all we needed for the family with plenty of extras not normally found in holiday Accom. Thanks for a great stay.
Wonderful to hear how guests/friends enjoy our cabin and surroundings and it's nice to share such a spectacular part of England.
Delightful log cabin in secluded woodland setting
Arriving at the park, you drive through, past the hut with the swimming pool and other facilities, arriving at a gate. Once you have parked in the reserved space, you walk down 20 or so steps, to a secluded knoll, with the beck running through, and the other cabins barely visible through the trees. The cabin itself was slightly on the small side, although if the weather is good you can use the veranda, which has chairs and a dining table.
There are two bedrooms, newly refurbished bathroom and living /dining/kitchen area. It is warm, dry and cozy, although only one person can comfortable fit in the kitchen area.
It is about 3-4 miles from Ambleside, where the nearest shops are, and about 7 miles from Coniston. It is well placed for walks, around the nearby Loughrigg Tarn and Elterwater, and the walk to Ambleside is beautiful and not strenuous.
The only downside, apart from the size, is the lack on wifi in the cabin itself - you will need to walk down to the central hut with the swimming pool to use the wifi. Also there is no mobile phone reception on site and I had to walk to the top of the hill to make a phone call.
All in all I would recommend it. A family of five could fit there, although it would be tight. I also had a text message after we left saying we had left some things, and that they would post them to us. I suggest you book early if you want to stay here.
Lovely, homely cabin. Great little pool and table tennis hall. Shame about the shower.
Cabin very homely, cosy and well equipped and well loved by the owners. Our 10 year old son loved the bunk room, making friends in the pool (small but great for playing in) and playing table tennis. Shame about the new but very temperamental electronic shower; followed owners instructions but shower would make a high pitched squeal, water pressure would drop to a dribble then come back cold on an approximately twenty second cycle, very irritating! I hope that it can be fixed as the owners have obviously spent a lot of effort refitting the bathroom which otherwise is great.
Great location for a variety of walks, cycle rides etc. Lots of birds around the cabin which was lovely. All in all, a lovely place to stay. Thanks to the owners for renting it out.
I am very sorry to hear you had problems with the shower, the water heater will only cope with one item at a time, as the anti scold cuts in.
Thank you for your kind comments.
Quaint lodge nestled in forest, not overlooked
We had a great time in Ullswater lodge. The Neaum Crag estate has lots of other properties but this lodge is very private (hidden in trees) and you won't be overlooked by others or bothered by passing traffic. There is no Wi-Fi or mobile signal in the lodge, but a short walk to the shared pool area has free Wi-Fi. No nearby shops so stock up! Recommend a walk up the hill for stunning views. At time of visit (July 2017) the shared washers and dryer used old pound coins (3 for washer, 1 for dryer). Children (7 & 2) loved the free pool and table tennis. Quiet break with lovely walks nearby. TV reception is a bit ropey and DVD player also, so bring good books and enjoy the stunning nature, whatever the weather! Overall, very happy. Owner was welcoming (by email/text) and available for any queries with quick responses.
