At Shank Wood Log Cabin Carlisle restaurants are in reach to discover. We are constantly trying to find ways to improve your stay whilst maintaining our main Ethos of providing secluded, real log cabin holidays in our breathtaking corner of the world.
We have built a beautiful oak framed reception where we now offer free wifi should you wish to catch up with the outside world. The log cabin is unable to get mobile phone coverage or wifi due to its secluded river bank location and is ‘off the grid’ allowing you to properly escape from reality.
For check in we will meet you at the reception where you can enjoy a complimentary tea or coffee before we show you down to your cabin. Or why not have a spot of lunch whilst you wait for your cabin. There is a lovely walk along the river just by the restaurant to enjoy if you need a stroll after your journey.
Check in is between 2 – 7pm.
To make your stay even more relaxing we now have a café/restaurant facility onsite, known as the Hidden River Cafe on of the best Carlisle restaurants. Located in the same cabin as our reception area, our resident Head Chef, Thomas Towle, aims to provide a selection of locally sourced cumbrian dishes cooked to perfection. You can enjoy some of the finest local produce, expertly prepared. We offer vegetarian options and a children’s menu. A traditional roast is served every Sunday. Enjoy your visit with a delicious illy coffee or perhaps something a little stronger from the bar, while you read the daily papers or use the free wifi.
