This Posh Bothy is in fact an Alpine style timber cabin (hence the name! ) located on a beautiful 18 acre private estate of ancient woodland, right at the entrance to the spectacular Langdale Valley. It’s a fell walkers paradise with a vast array of hiking routes accessed right from the front door.
All the windows look straight out into the fantastic, mature woodland and your closest neighbours are of the feathered variety! Here in the forest, you’re surrounded by nature and visited by all manner of creatures including red and roe deer, badgers, red squirrels. It’s a bird watchers paradise, tree creepers, woodpeckers, jays, nuthatches, buzzards and owls constantly appearing amongst the magnificent mature oak trees…and the cheekiest of robins will pop in for a visit if you leave the door open!
The accommodation is all on one level within this traditionally built wooden cabin. The Bothy has been comprehensively modernised into an extremely cosy home from home and lovingly furnished with style and comfort and loads of thoughtful extras, from maps & walking books to a cafetiere and a slow cooker.
Between March and mid November you can enjoy the communal Spa & Pool House (just 150 yards away) with swimming pool, Jacuzzi and sauna.
This Lake District Holiday Accommodation is perfectly located just 10 minutes on foot to the beautiful waterfalls at Skelwith Bridge, the bustling cafe and shop at Chesters and ‘hungry hikers’ pub food at the hotel.
Under an hour’s walk on the Loughrigg bridleway brings you to the bustling heart of Ambleside village and all the local amenities, or a 30 minute stroll along the river takes you to picturesque Elterwater and the Britannia and Wainwrights Inns. Similarly, Grasmere, Coniston or Hawkeshead are all 10 minutes in the car or an hour or so’s walk.
Woodbug Cabin is the perfect mini, luxury retreat for couples, pairs or solos who want the peace and quiet of a hideaway in the woods but only a short drive back to civilisation! Its’ stylish interior and modern facilities make it a perfect hideaway in any season and any weather.
Posh Bothies are designed for two adults sharing a double bed but can be set up as twin accommodation by prior request. They’re also a real treat for solo travellers who are usually condemned to tiny single occupancy rooms!
We don’t accept kids or pets, (lovely though they are!) and we are strictly non-smoking (including e-cigarettes/vapeurs) both inside and outside.
