Holmedell

Lodge-over-the-pond-450-600“Holmedell” is a pine clad lodge at Duke’s Meadow near Greystoke on the edge of the Lake District National Park.  It is one of only six lodges around the historic Duke’s Pond, so called because the Duke of Norfolk allowed the farmers to water their cattle here on their way to Penrith market.

Despite its rustic appearance, “Holmedell” is only 5 years old and conforms to modern construction standards. With electric, thermostatically controlled heating throughout, you will be warm and cosy whatever the Lake District weather throws at you.

For those warmer days, (yes, the sun does shine in the Lake District), there are table and chairs on the wooden decking for “al fresco” dining or just somewhere to sit quietly watching the birds and red squirrels feeding.  You may also be rewarded with the sight of roe deer and hares from the adjacent forest.

“Holmedell” is available for short breaks and long weekends as well as full weeks all year round.
