Scale Hill provides characterful accommodation for small groups and families with the opportunity for everyone to be on one site but in separate accommodation. Sheila's is the largest on the site with an open fire and private garden. Lanthwaite is all at ground floor level making it suitable for guests with restricted mobility.

There is a large established garden with panoramic views from Melbreak to Low Fell. The hot tub can be enjoyed between 9am and 9pm - a chance to relax and unwind after an energetic day.

There's plenty to enjoy while staying at Scale Hill. Wildlife enthusiasts are spoilt with the opportunity to watch red squirrels in the garden, there's excellent walking and climbing, it's just a 10 minute walk through the woods to the shore of Crummock Water where you can take a rowing boat out or brave the chilly waters for a spot of wild swimming. Explore the Cumbrian coast, with the start of the C2C cycle route nearby too, at Whitehaven. Some of our cottages are dog friendly, so you can bring your pet to experience the fantastic countryside too.

There are lots of good pubs in the area, catering for hungry walkers and serving local ales; the Kirkstile Inn serving the award winning Loweswater Gold is just 10 minutes walk down the hill and the Wheatsheaf Inn in the village of Lorton just 2 miles drive. Cockermouth and Keswick, both 8 miles away, are positively bursting with places to enjoy coffee and cake or an evening meal.
