About the property

E17783

These pine log cabins enjoy a secluded south facing position on Snittlegarth Farm, with views across open country to Binsey Fell. A haven for wildlife, as well as the farm animals. Snittlegarth is home to roe deer, badgers, foxes, pheasants and a variety of songbirds, with red squirrels coming up to the lodges to feed. The original Snittlegarth Estate was owned by Lord Gillford and extended to 12,000 acres. It is now farmed on a smaller scale and has the benefit of footpaths from the doorstep on to Binsey Fell and beyond. Snittlegarth lies in a truly tranquil valley close to Ireby and Uldale on the northern fringe of the National Park and provides an idyllic retreat for those who wish to escape from the hustle and bustle of every day life.

Beautiful quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our two grandchildren and it was an excellent choice. A beautiful quiet spot with an outlook to sheep in fields. Red squirrels guaranteed at the feeders morning and evening. Lots of birds too. A lovely walk from the doorstep up to Binsey Hill and near enough to Keswick if supplies needed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would definitely return.

A cozy retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely break at Snittlegarth. The owner is friendly and welcoming. The lodge is basic but very comfortable. The week we were there saw high winds and rain but the lodge was warm and comfortable. Our dog loved being able to run around and watch the sheep (safely behind a double fence so no worries about him getting to them). The whole family enjoyed Red Squirrel spotting and watching the abundance of birds. We had days out at many of the lakes and there were plenty of local attractions available. I would recommend this place if you are after peace and quiet. No internet or phone signal at the lodge, but the children walked up the hill to get a signal when they got desperate! For once I was organised and took tea towels, dish cloth, washing up liquid etc, only to find it was all there already! We will definitely visit again.
