About Tony Mole
I recently moved back to Cumbria after spending 8 years in the South of France where I set up and ran a property business. Before moving to France I was owner of a graphic design studio and worked for many national and international clients. Ex-rugby player and keen on all sports including skiing, mountain biking, rowing, walking I love the great outdoors so am lucky to have rental properties in both the south of France and the Lake District. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
Tony Mole purchased this Cabin in 2012
Why Tony Mole chose South Lakeland District
I fell in love with these gorgeous log cabins and their spectacular locations as soon as I saw them. Contemporary and up to date in terms of design and layout, very stylish interiors yet cosy when the snow's on the ground. I've equipped them with everything modern guests would expect to see such as iPod docking stations, wif-fi. Always a delight returning to one of the lodges after a long day on the fells. The locations are perfect for exploring arguably the most beautiful part of England any time of year.
What makes this Cabin unique
Our guests can enjoy unlimited free use of a new luxury health club 5 minutes from the lodge, large gym, indoor pool, sauna, steam room and hot tub.

Great location and great accommodation
The cabin was well equipped and nice and clean. Nice walks through the woods for the dog. A small welcome pack was included which was a nice touch.
Everyone loved the hot tub, the only problem now is trying to work out how we could have one of our own! I think we will come back next year
We had an absolutely amazing time, not one complaint about the log cabin or the park. The cabin is exactly like the pictures and it is so clean, the bed is so comfy! Would definitely come back
Thanks for your feedback delighted to received such positive comments regarding both the lodge and the Park. Hope to welcome you back very soon !
Excellent property, stunning location
On arrival, the property was spotlessly clean. There was really nothing missing as far as self catering goes, the kitchen was extemely well equippped. The lodge was comfortable, cosy as well as modern. The positioning of the property was brilliant, close to the local restaurant, swimming pool and playing area. Hiking and cycling in the area is fantastic with both easy and moderate routes available. We would definately use the property again if holidaying in the area.
