Shackleton Lodge, Cumbria, Lake District, sleeps 31 in 9 bedrooms.

Accommodating up to 31 people, sole-occupancy, Shackleton Lodge is ideal for a large family and friends get-together, or any other large group from schools to clubs. There is a fully-equipped kitchen and dining block just a few steps from the lodge, plus a purpose-built BBQ beneath the natural leafy canopy that the tall trees provide.

Located on the northern shore of Windermere, the combination of sweeping farmland, lake views, a backdrop of mountains and a comfortable, friendly environment ensure the best conditions for a memorable experience.
