The Den is a unique space within the Lake District - a Scandinavian style BBQ cabin.

A large BBQ pit in the centre to sit around provides a cosy relaxing evening space, and a place to cook!

WiFi, Fridge, Microwave, Kettle & Nespresso.

Bedding provided, and a heated blanket!

8 minutes by car to Windermere, 5 minutes to Kendal. Easy access to a bus stop and cycle lane. Dales Way very close by.

A camping-type toilet and sink (hot & cold water) next to the cabin.

Dogs welcome £5/night extra.

The space
Set in 2/3rds of an acre of beautiful gardens with private countryside views.

Off street private and secure parking is provided.

Toilet is located next to The Den in a separate shed. The sink has running hot & cold drinking water. Please note there are not shower facilities, but the sink with running water is suitable for taking a daily wash.

Guest access
On-site private parking. Lockable garage for bikes if necessary.

The Den is located right at the bottom of our garden, semi-hidden in the trees. It is quite private and not overlooked by neighbours at all, but for clarity, please do note that it is located within our family garden.

Other things to note
Want to come cycling in the Lakes? We are right on the cycle lane into the Lakes. Bring your bikes, stay the first night here then leave your car at the property whilst you go on your cycling trip. Completely private and safe parking. Secure garage for your bikes.

We will provide a first bag of charcoal and firelighters for the BBQ. If you want more then either bring your own or you can purchase extra bags from us at £3 per bag.

To keep costs down for guests we don't charge a cleaning fee, but simply ask that it is left clean and tidy on departure. If you prefer to have the place cleaned we have a cleaner who charges a very reasonable £15, either let us know in advance or on the day and we will request that payment via AirBnB in advance of checkout. If the space is left dirty and untidy we will charge the £15 cleaning fee via AirBnB.

Dogs are welcome but we charge £5/night extra to cover additional cleaning costs, but we also provide dog bowls and treats!

Location

Cumbria, England, United Kingdom

We are about half way between Kendal and Windermere. The main cycle lane into the Lake District is directly across the road, as is the Dales Way walking path.

The Den is in a semi-rural setting with views to the surrounding countryside.

For clarity's sake, during busy rush hours there is some traffic noise from the road, but evenings and nights are typically quiet.

Please note that we are not the Windermere Camping Site, despite the AirBnB map showing it close by!

During your stay
We are happy to help as much as you need, or leave you completely alone to do your own thing!

Can possibly collect you from the local train station (Staveley) or Oxenholme if I'm around the Kendal area already.
