Lake District Eco Log Cabin


Enjoy complete seclusion in your Eco Log Cabin, 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 eco friendly log cabins we have added a few eco-friendly touches in keeping with the cabins’ location. The way the cabin differs from other log cabins Lake District is that it was made using the whole tree trunk, skillfully carved one on top of the other, to create the desired effect.

As the eco friendly log cabins is based in a special area it has been designed to work in conjunction with nature as much as possible. Therefore lighting is provided by solar power and heating by a clean burn wood burner making the lake district holidays a joy in both the winter and the summer. There is a new outdoor bathroom pod 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, there is no shower however you are able to use the hot tub as a bath. The Eco Log Cabin is self catering and the large weber BBQ can cook most foods and boil the kettle. There are no fridge facilities at the log cabins Lake District but the river is normally pretty cool! Short breaks for log cabins in the lake district are available for up to 2 nights minimum stay, please contact us on 01228 792489 or email at
