Our Brand-New Lakeside Site: An Overview

This spectacularly located site is situated on the quieter western shores of Windermere; England’s largest lake. We are just a hop, skip and splash away from a restorative early morning dip, or a sunset paddle board adventure. Offering stunning 360-degree views across almost the entire length of the lake towards Ambleside and the fells beyond, our Lakeside site provides a quiet retreat for families, friends, and couples alike. Guests can enjoy a luxury Lakeside holiday from March through to November each year.

Each of our five, 18ft luxury yurts accommodate up to six people across a double futon and four single beds. Fully equipped with a 4KW wood burning stove, you can enjoy the crackle of logs and the warmth of the fire, before venturing out to explore the Lakes. We provide everything you could possibly need for a truly relaxing staycation, with clean toilets, hot showers, and washing up areas just a short walk away from your yurt.

  • Luxury lakeshore yurts
  • Spectacular views from the door of your yurt
  • Quiet location on the western shores of Lake Windermere
  • A hop, skip and splash into England’s largest lake
  • Paddle boarding, canoeing, and sailing on your doorstep
