Silly Knott - Backbarrow
Silly Knott is at the far corner of the park and has its own private south facing garden to the rear; the hot-tub is enclosed in a traditional Lakeland stone wall and the garden is a perfect sun-trap on a warm summers day.
Further photographs and more detailed information of Silly Knott, including guest reviews and availability can be found right here.
Horse Spout - Backbarrow
Horse Spout has a partial Lake view from the decking and hot tub and also from two of the bedrooms. It is in a rather enviable location as it looks over its own sloping lawn towards woodlands and also backs on to woodland which is a carpet of bluebells and wild garlic during the spring. I think there is nowhere quite like Cumbria for smelling the beautiful aroma of wild garlic...but perhaps I am biased?

* There is a step up to the decked area and then one further step into the lodge
* The Hot Tub may not be up to full temperature at the time of your arrival. The owner will however do his utmost to ensure that it is ready, but due to the maintenance required during each changeover, there is a chance it may not be.
This cosy lodge for 2 with a Hot Tub is well away from the Tourist Hot-Spots, yet still handy enough to go and explore the Lakes and of course you can explore all that the historic market town has to offer too... if you are a Laurel and Hardy fan then you really are in for a treat.
The Cumbrian way is just one of the many walking opportunities locally and this area is popular with cyclists too
