Lake District self-catering group accommodation

Lake District self-catering group accommodation

During the winter the Lake District turns into a magical and enchanting landscape, with snow-capped mountains and Jack Frost adding his sparkle.  Known for its amazing scenery and great activity opportunities the Lake District is a sure winner even during the winter months.  What better way to spend a winter’s day than taking a canoe tour on Ullswater on a clear, crisp morning, when the lake is like a mill pond and surrounded by snowy peaks.   The local area also provides a host of winter and festive events to keep you entertained and ensure your stay is a memorable one.  The Lake District is therefore an ideal UK winter holiday destination whether you are looking for a relaxing break or an energetic exploration of the hills and valleys by foot, bike or boat.  


If you are looking for comfortable self-catering accommodation on your own private estate then Distant Horizons has the answer.  Our self-catering group accommodation has been built within the grounds of our own private estate by Ullswater in the Eden Valley.  The lodge can be hired exclusively for friends and families over the winter, including Christmas and the New Year, offering you and your loved ones a chance to get together and enjoy the serenity of Cumbria. 

Facilities and Activities

Surrounded by mountains and overlooking the Ullswater valley the lodge offers simple yet comfortable Lake District self-catering accommodation for a group of up to 12 people.  The lodge benefits from under floor heating, Wi-Fi, a fully functional kitchen, a fire pit ideal for clear nights to sit our under the stars, and 8 single beds plus the ever popular ‘alpine bunk’ room.  The accommodation has been built with sustainability in mind and the heating and water are powered by an air source heat pump.  The electricity used to power the heat pump is offset by 3 large solar panels placed in the canopy roof.  To fully appreciate what our self-catering accommodation has to offer go to our Distant Horizons Lakeland Lodge page.  Groups accommodated in the lodge also have the opportunity to take advantage of the outdoor and indoor activities we provide.  As well as running canoe tours and guided walks in and around Ullswater we have our own indoor activity centre at your disposal including a climbing wallabseiling and archery, offering a Lake District accommodation and activity package.
