Perched on the lower slopes on Blencathra, famous for having six separate fell tops and one of the most impressive fells in the Lake District National Park, this cute detached lodge is a great choice for your next Cumbrian adventure. Situated on a working sheep and beef farm, this purpose-built lodge was designed with couples in mind. Its south-facing aspect means you can relax on the patio, complete with garden furniture, and soak up the sun through most of the day in privacy and seclusion.

The lodge itself has been finished to a very good standard, the ground floor is all open plan, comes well equipped and features a modern kitchen with breakfast bar and a living room with comfortable two-seater sofa and flat screen TV. Just off the living room is a small but modern bathroom with high spec shower cubicle. Upstairs is a cosy bedroom with beams and attractive furnishings. Pets are welcome at Darci’s Lodge so no need to worry about high kennel fees, just bring them along, it’s their holiday too!

The property is situated just off the A66 which is the main route between Penrith and Keswick. The nearest villages of Scales and Threlkeld, offering three great pubs/restaurants serving local cask ales and great food, are just a mile away. Directly opposite is Keswick Golf Club, so bring your clubs along if you fancy a round. Just 5 miles away is the vibrant and popular market town of Keswick which is bustling with bars, restaurants, shops, nightlife and great shopping. Keswick also has lots of great tourist attractions including The Theatre By The Lake, which offers award-winning arts and drama in an enviable position on the shores of Derwentwater. Visit The Derwent Pencil Museum, home to the world’s largest pencil, and if you fancy something slightly different, check out Puzzling Place, a museum full of mind bending optical illusions and great for all ages.

Cyclists, walkers and climbers will love the freedom of the iconic Lakeland Fells in the vicinity. The area has any number of easy-going walking routes taking in much of the picturesque scenery, however if you are looking for a bigger challenge, Keswick and Derwentwater is a great starting point for many of Wainwright’s 214 Lakeland Fells including Latrigg and Catbells. If you want even more of a challenge, try Skiddaw or Helvellyn, 3rd and 4th highest mountains in England, both within 8 miles. For a memorable and relaxing break in the Lakes, choose Darci’s Lodge for your next Cumbrian getaway. Shop 4½ miles, pub ¾ mile and restaurant 1¼ miles.
Darci’s Lodge can be booked together with Harrison’s Lodge (UK1259), Lucy’s Lodge (UK1260), Grajo Cottage (UK1284), Derwent Dale Cottage (UK1334), Brackendale (UK1335), Shepherd’s Bield (UK1349), Doddick Chase Cottage (UK1363) and The Rocking Lodge (UK11517) to accommodate up to 30 guests.

    There was no light in the kitchen which made cooking difficult in the evening. The hob took 30 minutes to bring a saucepan to the boil. There were no instructions for it, nor for the shower which was very complicated. The door lock was dodgy and until we discovered the knack of opening it, struggled with it. The cottage would be improved with updated bedding and pillows and somewhere to hang coats downstairs. Have stayed in quite a few cottages now but this one was the one we liked least. Not the best value for money.

    We loved our stay in Darci's Lodge. Even though the weather was wet the lodge was warm and comfortable. The shower is amazing once you work out how to use it! The bed was very comfy and the kitchen had most of what we wanted to use. A cafetiere would be a welcome addition as would a coat hook or two. That said we are looking at booking again next year as we loved it and found it an excellent base to see keswick and bassenthwaite lake.
