    “The property was exactly as described.”

    We had the site to ourselves as the other van wasn’t occupied whilst we were there, but as the vans looked away from each other even if there had been someone else staying it would still have felt private. The views from the property were amazing, and the furniture was exceptionally comfortable, just what was need after a day on the fells. I’d highly recommend this property to anyone wanting a quiet stay in the northern Lakes.

Scales Farm Lodges

Scales Farm Lodges are a wonderful pairing of self-catering dwellings, nestled within the Lakeland village of High Lorton, a short journey away from the amenities of Cockermouth. Enjoying a rural surrounding, within the Lake District National Park, the collection offers couples, friends, and families the chance to tour this delightful region, offering ground-floor, pet-friendly accommodation, and access to an on-site fishing lake. Complete with off-road parking, private wrap-around verandas, and open-plan living spaces, the lodges are well-equipped for a countryside escape, whilst within driving distance to a hub of amenities and attractions. If you fancy dining out, the Wheatsheaf Inn pub rests nearby, along with a local convenience store to purchase the essentials and stock the fridge, or if you’d prefer to travel a little further, Cockermouth is brimming with shops and eateries to take advantage of. A car journey away you will reach Go Ape Whinlatter, made for fun-filled days out of outdoor adventure, or if you’d prefer to scale the surrounding peaks, Grisedale Pike and Grasmoor are within proximity, worth packing your hiking gear for. Dubwath Silver Meadows Nature Reserve is also a recommended beauty spot in the region, along with Bassenthwaite Lake and its elevated viewpoint, with both the Lake District Wildlife Park, and Mirehouse & Gardens nearby, perfect for all types of visitors. Round off your break in Keswick, with the chance to tour the Derwent Pencil Museum, discover the Keswick Museum, and canoe along Derwentwater, before returning home in time for sunset. Escape to your own haven at Scales Farm Lodges.
