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.

Fantastic place in a lovely area! The lodge was immaculate! Saw lots of red squirrels, rod was great
Great and new experience for us
It was a fantastic trip. Good facility and nice lodge with nice surrounding. Good location with easy reach to east lakes. Love to go back. Can strongly recommend to friends.
If you want peace then this is where you find it
Perfect place to relax and enjoy the quiet, nature and views. Lodge is clean, tidy and well equipped with everything you need for your stay (just bring provisions). Rod is friendly and helpful and allows you to wander about the estate at your leisure. The farm is located in a beautiful area and all the walks and attractions are a short drive away. I'd tell you more but then you'd book it and I won't be able to get a slot for when I want to return!
Back to nature
Lovely peaceful place and there's so much to explore in the area. Well equipped bungalows. Highly recommended!
Beautiful, peaceful and full of wildlife
Just back from a short break at this amazing place. If you want peace and quiet with loads of wildlife this is the place to stay. The cabin was lovely, perfect for our family of 3. My daughter (4years old) was able to play outside amongst the trees with minimum supervision and even made a friend in the neighbouring cabin. The wildlife is amazing, red squirrels, woodpeckers, owls, bats and even a fox. Good location for exploring the north lakes or simply just relaxing. Owners are great and are very friendly and helpful so would highly recommend.
thanks Alison,glad you enjoyed your stay
What a lovey place to stay, the farm is wonderful!
What a lovely break after Christmas me and my partner and our two cocker spaniels came for New year. The cabin was so clean and lovely and warm, and has every thing you need, all you need to bring is your towels. Rod came straight away to meet us and show us every thing we needed to know, we had lovely little christmas trimmings and a christmas tree such a nice touch.
The dogs could run around safely and enjoyed the walk up to the top farm. The views are beautiful, we loved seeing all the dogs, chickens and a peacock walking around all the little birds feeding.
A great place to stay to explore the lake district, and lovely shops not far away. We will be looking at coming again it was more than we excepted!
we would recommend any one to come and stay here.
We thank you for a great time away from the city.
