About this listing

It’s always lovely to visit the Lake District, but it might just be even more lovely to take a bath in the middle of it. Once you’re down the gravel track from the farmhouse and settled into your cosy space, you’ll see nothing but trees, the peaks of the hills, a few sheep and cows, and some distant rooftops as you bathe. From this remote spot, you can hike an almost endless selection of trails, spotting wildlife from badgers to buzzards. There are warming climbs and stunning views up Blencathra and Skiddaw to the north or Helvellyn to the south, and more gentle strolls down the old railway line into Threlkeld and Keswick, a mile or so away. In this lovely village you’ll find The Horse and Farrier, where you can enjoy local ales, spirits from the nearby distillery and hearty meals of locally-sourced pub classics, although Luke, the owner of The Stag, strongly recommends making the 15-minute drive to Grasmere and checking out the family-owned, cow-themed restaurant The Jumble Room.

As well as being a great source of local knowledge, Luke is also the creator of the space you’re staying in. The Stag is constructed to his own design using almost entirely local materials. Most of the wood comes from a sustainable sawmill a mile away, the slate from Honister and there’s a douglas fir tree stump from up the valley holding up the bathroom sink. Even the coffee was locally roasted and the vintage tractor seats at the breakfast bar haven’t travelled far. You’ll find the king-sized bed wonderfully comfortable, the hobbit stove in the corner backed up by underfloor heating, the kitchen equipped with kettle, toaster and gas hobs and the en suite bathroom all modern and excellently finished. Outside, the wood-fired bath makes a perfect spot for lying back and looking at the hills you’ve been walking through or, with the light pollution so minimal, the glorious night skies.
