We had a wonderful week in your lodge. The pool and table tennis table was a real hit with our 14 year old son - and the sauna was with me (after a long days walk). Even though we were in the heart of The Lake District, it wasn't busy in the slightest (if we avoided Ambleside), and so easy to use as a base for some great walks. Langdale is simply beautiful and so too is the Cumbria way which runs just below the site and takes in the wonderful Chesters (tea rooms). A super week.
Third year at Tarn Hows.Fourth time Neaum Crag.
Great walks from the door..hide the car keys. Walk out from site to left and head towards loughrigg tarn but take path up left-side to go up over loughrigg fell and down to Grasmere water. Walk down by swimming pool down cut to Skelwith and round by Elterwater to Langdale and Dungeon Ghyll. Just couple of many walks.
Cabin is on road just as you come onto site so no steep climb to higher set cabins.
Enclosed patio area lovely to sit out after walks but not a sun trap due to trees but so relaxing.
Owner, Mark, very accommodating at answering any questions.
Main bedroom small and compact but bed comfy and pitch black at night.
Dog happy as always and knows where she is every time we return..sleeps for week when we get home.
Bath with shower..very good shower with plenty power.
Should not review so highly as might not get booking next year !!
Tarn Hows at Neaum Crag is a perfect little hideaway. The site is peaceful and all the cabins are set away from each other. The pool and sauna were an added bonus. The cabin was well equipped and it was easy to cook full meals there. Chesters by the river is a lovely cafe 10mins walk away which does great breakfasts. There are plenty of walks from the site or it is a great location to easily drive to other places. One thing to note is that there is a fairly steep path up to the cabin which wasn't a problem at all for us but may be for someone with mobility problems.
Would definitely recommend Tarn Hows and hope to be back in the future!

Enjoyed a late September week here. The location is wonderful. We walked in several directions from the cabin and would highly recommend it for a walking holiday as well as a central base for touring around the lakes. The cabin was well equipped, the beds comfortable with all linen provided and made up before arrival. Towels etc also provided. The cabin is well insulated and we were always comfortable and warm. The pool and sauna facility on the estate, 3 minutes walk from the cabin, is excellent and very welcome after a day of walking. We will be returning as soon as we can to continue our love of fell walking in the lakes.
Myself and my partner absolutely loved going back to Tarn Hows at the end of our days out. It was a great holiday for us and the lodge definitely enhanced our sense of getting away from it all. We miss it already!
