Enjoy complete seclusion, set in the centre of Shank Wood with fantastic river views. Situated only 45 minutes from Keswick, Shank Wood Log Cabin is the perfect woodland retreat. Whilst taking a stroll from the cabin along the river banks, keep an eye out for the local wildlife such as Kingfishers, Roe Deer & Otters.
To help reduce our carbon footprint in the cabin, we have added a few eco-friendly touches. Lighting is provided by solar power and heating by a clean burn wood burner making the cabin a joy in both the winter and the summer. There is a new outdoor bathroom which has hot running water and a flushing loo. An outdoor sink provides running water for cooking, drinking and washing up. There is a 3 pin plug in the cabin that can take small electrical items. The cabin is self catering and the large weber BBQ can cook most foods and boil the kettle. There are no fridge facilities but the river is normally pretty cool! Short breaks are available for 3 nights minimum stay, please contact us on 01228 792 489 or email at email@example.com
Gretna Green & the Outlet Village are only a further 10 minutes on from Longtown… a great place to go for a spot of shopping!
If you head out the other way from your eco friendly log cabins the other local town is Brampton. Similar facilities to Longtown with a Butchers, Spar & local pub… just with a little more character. From Brampton Hadrian’s wall is sign posted should you wish to see some of the beautiful local countryside.
Our log cabins in the Lake District is set away from all the hustle & bustle of everyday life but there are some great activities within easy access from the cabin. If you are looking to explore the local countryside a little further perhaps you would like to hire a bike, Bike Seven in Longtown will be able to help you with this or you could bring your own. An alternative way to take in the views is on horse back with pony trekking available at Bailey Mill. Whilst we offer a tranquil, relaxing stay you may be looking for some more adventurous activities to do during your holiday. We are approximately 1 hour 30 minutes from Go Ape! in Grizedale forest, or you could try your hand at some of the water sports available on Lake Windermere.
