our last-minute holidays in Cumbria

Choose from our two stunning Lodge Holiday Resorts in Cumbria for your next break in the region.

Darwin Escapes is renowned for luxury, with an aim of helping holidaymakers carve holiday memories that will last a lifetime. You have the opportunity to do this in Cumbria at our two fantastic lodge holiday resorts in the region.

This includes the well-established 5 stars Thanet Well Lodge Retreat which is the perfect setting for peaceful countryside escapes, as well as the Award Winning Keswick Reach Lodge Retreat which offers an array of 5 star rated facilities.

Thanet Well Lodge Retreat

Our Thanet Well Lodge Retreat is located near Greystoke Forest.

There isn’t much in the way of facilities here, it is all about peace and tranquility in an idyllic setting with lodges given a prime position so you can enjoy uninterrupted views of the surrounding fells and countryside from your private decking area.

The decking areas which come with the top of the range lodges we offer here are equipped with their own private hot tub facilities – a must book if you are looking for unrivaled luxury. If there are any hot tub equipped lodges available to book above, we’d recommend getting in their quickly as these tend to get snapped up. This is why we don’t often have last minute holidays in Cumbria available in these premier lodges.

The facilities which we have available on the park are purposefully limited because the aim here is to create a relaxing sanctuary where you can escape the stresses of everyday life. It is also a great location for walking holidays, with a plethora of scenic walking routes available in the nearby region including Coniston Water.

Of course, if you want to do more than walking there is plenty to do in the local area visitor attraction wise. Lakeland Bird of Prey Centre is nearby and offers the chance to see the majestic birds in flight and try your hand at handling. For something more laid back, visit Lowther Castle and gardens, where you can take a casual stroll around the estate and marvel at the castle ruins, it is also pet-friendly, perfect for those planning on bringing their four-legged friend to Thanet Well!

Keswick Reach Lodge Retreat

Keswick Reach Lodge Retreat is located in Cockermouth and only a short distance from Keswick town but in the heart of the Lake District National Park.

Facilities onsite include tranquil Ammara Spa, Jacuzzi pool, steam room, and unique sauna where you can sit back and admire the beautiful countryside surroundings for which Keswick Reach is so renowned.

Our holidaymakers are also able to take advantage of the exclusive eatery Copper Fells Bar & Bistro which serves class-leading cuisine prepared using local ingredients. Costa Coffee is also served here in case you just fancy a coffee or a break in between walks.

The lodges in Keswick Reach are up to a very similar standard to those which are available at Thanet Well, with lavish décor and an array of holiday home comforts including Freeview enabled TVs and Wi-Fi internet access. The décor does differ slightly to that which has been employed at Thanet Well, but this is in keeping with the character of the resort and is equally as luxurious. Our Keswick lodges are also fully equipped for self-catering with modern integrated kitchens. All you will need to do is bring your food supplies, some of which can be purchased from our on-site shop.

Occasionally the hot tub lodges in Keswick Reach may become available to book for last-minute holidays in Cumbria. However, these lodges are massively popular so are likely to get snapped up quickly.
