Newly constructed in 2019, these 2 luxury lodges are in an idyllic lakeside setting in the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. From the moment you arrive you’re greeted by simply breathtaking views over the surrounding countryside, in the most wonderful and unique setting where you can escape the every day hustle and bustle. Perfect for a family get-together, romantic retreat, celebration, or a weekend break away. The layouts have been designed to offer privacy, yet make the most of the beautiful far reaching views with floor-to-ceiling windows. Bi-folding doors from the sociable open plan living space, open out onto the spacious decked areas which just grace the edge of the lake, truly bringing the outside in. For those who fish, the lake is well stocked with carp, and to finish you’ll find a private hot tub, perfect for use in all weather, offering complete and utter relaxation.The Forest of Bowland was once described as the ‘Switzerland of England’, and covering 312 square miles means you’ll find ample walking, riding and cycling nearby. The location is convenient for exploring both the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks which can both be reached in around an hour, and for those with children, Blackpool and the UK’s largest indoor waterpark, Sandcastle Waterpark, are just 30 minutes away.
