Enjoy complete seclusion in Shank Wood Log Cabin, complete with wood-fired hot tub, situated only 45 minutes from Keswick. To help reduce our carbon footprint we have added a few eco-friendly touches in keeping with the cabins’ location. The cabin has been made using whole tree trunks, skillfully carved one on top of the other.
Based in a special area of scientific interest, the cabin has been designed to work in conjunction with nature. Lighting in the cabin is provided by solar power, and the heating by a clean burn wood burner. This makes the cabin perfect in both the winter and summer. Also an outdoor sink provides 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, gas is provided for this. There are no fridge facilities but the river is normally pretty cold!
Short breaks are available for a minimum of 3 nights. Please contact us on 01228 792 489 or book online. Prices start from £150 per night for 2 people and £210 for 4 people.
