The Space

Cunsey Lodge is the home you have always wanted – it offers class, privacy and a true sense of homeliness, which is why our guests return here year after year.

Walking distance from both forest exploring and a dip in the lake, not to mention your very own log-burning hot tub on your raised private garden – make sure to book early as to not miss out on the lakeview stay of your dreams.

The hamlet of Cunsey is a very special place on the Western side of Windermere. The Lodge is perched on its own little hill opposite our very own Cunsey Farm. Just 10 mins drive from the quaint and historic village of Hawkshead and 25 mins from the buzzing Ambleside, you can indeed have the best of both worlds with a stay at Cunsey.

Upon entering the property, you are instantly welcomed with a spacious open-plan kitchen-dining area so there is plenty of space for all the family to relax and play. The living space overlooks the front views of the property with a log burning stove and TV for quiet nights in getting cosy.

Upstairs, each bedroom has its very own en-suite, so no fighting over the shower when you’re back from a long hot day in the hills or a session on the Lake with Graythwaite Adventure.

Get in touch for more information and we will be more than happy to offer you a stay in one of our absolute favourites.
