A perfect haven

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a quiet peaceful retreat, this is the place. We used this as a base while we explored the Lake District, and it was delightful to return to the sanctuary of this lodge after our busy days out. The lodge is very clean and comfortable and very well maintained. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and the owners are very easy-going and did not intrude on our stay at all. The location is idyllic. It was lovely to watch the horses being exercised in the morning. If the weather is warm, the garden, with its view of the tarn, is a perfect place to relax, and the charming little garden birds and rabbits etc made a very pleasant change from the noisy pigeons and seagulls that I get in my garden! I highly recommend this place.

Great with small kids

  • 5 of 5

We travelled with our 4 yr old son and 2 yr old daughter. Both loved being able to runaround the fields, pet the horses and feed the chickens. Maurice and Anne made us feel that we had the run of the place! For adults the local scenery is stunning, the view from the cottages ideal for sundowners and the local pub, about 1 mile away, is a good option for meals. All in all a very chilled out stay. Would definitely recommend.

Waste of money

  • 1 of 5

I'm not being picky but no sky tv ( only free view ). No washing machine and no wi-fi. Very cold cottage.logs weren't replenished as promised and the log burners rope seal has disintegrated resulting in the fire burning out very quickly. Don't bother taking your mobile either.

Another lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our 3rd visit to Tarnside Lodges, we first found this lovely place just over 11 years ago after we had got married and have now been able to get back twice in the past couple of years, don't want to leave and will keep coming back! It's a peaceful retreat to enjoy some time out. Looking over to the Tarn is lovely and being able to meet the horses and animals on the farm with a friendly atmosphere from everybody, nothing is too much trouble and you don't feel out of place. Our favourite place to relax.

Using your Tarnside Lodge as a base, you can take day trips to Carlisle and Hadrian's Wall, the Scottish Borders, the Lake District and more locally the Eden Valley and North Pennine areas. The Gretna Gateway Outlet Centre is only 20 minutes away by car. The Cumbrian Antiques Centre in Brampton is a wonderful way of shopping for antiques within a unique surrounding. WiFi installed March 2012.

If you want a totally stress free holiday/break, the local walks around Tarnside are well worth experiencing. There are a number of good local eateries including the Blacksmith's Arms in Talkin. Whilst relaxing at Tarnside, you can walk to the Tarn . We have 100 acres of land surrounding the farm, our Gallops are all weather and if visitors would like to see the horses out working that's OK.

Other Activities: Hadrian's Wall

Please note our calendar only shows full when both lodges are booked.

Golf: BRAMPTON GOLF COURSE IS ONLY 2 MILES FROM TARNSIDE AND IS A SUPERB COURSE.
