This pod is beautifully finished, situated on a working sheep farm surrounded by stunning picture postcard open countryside. In the springtime the lambs are a joy to watch! Threlkeld village is just over a mile away with a couple of lovely country pubs, a cricket pavilion and golf course. Keswick is just 4 miles away, with a good selection of independent shops, restaurants and cafe's. Annually, usually in May or June, Keswick holds the Mountain Festival which is a three day event with world-class sports, outdoor activities, talks and films with live music. Derwentwater is only 12 miles away and offers some great water sport activities or why not visit one of the local distillery's.

Entering the pod, you will find a spacious bright open-plan living area with a sofa and a Smart TV, which will allow you to log into your Netflix Account and enjoy a good film. There is a double bed with views out over the fells and a kitchen area with two ring gas hob, microwave and fridge with ice compartment, it offers everything you need to rustle up breakfast and a quick bite. Finally, there is a shower room with WC.

The pod is separated from the two other pods on site by a lovely dry-stone wall and planting. There is a private parking space for one car and a lovely covered decking to the front of the pod with seating. There is a private hot tub tucked away to the side of the pod with views over the Blencathra.


Immaculately clean . Nice gesture of the welcome pack.Best chocolate brownie we have ever tasted. Everything needed for a comfortable stay including a powerful shower and hot tub after a lovely walk . Very peaceful stay just what was needed.

Mrs H,

Very comfortable accommodation, has all the basics that you need for a few days. Bed was very comfortable. View from the hot tub is absolutely stunning, this one is definitely the best view on the complex. Location is excellent, 10 minute drive to Keswick and Derwent, 20 minute drive the other way to Ullswater. Would recommend the Horse & Farrier for dinner which is just across the road. Excellent food and very welcoming to dogs! Overall would definitely recommend staying here!

Mr G,

A really lovely cabin, ideal for a weekend away. It was clean, well equipped and beautifully furnished. The hot tub was great and very secluded. The bathroom was clean and the shower was hot with good pressure. We had a lovely couple of nights here and I would really recommend it.

Mrs R,

From booking the property to leaving everything about it was perfect , we will definitely be returning! The photos of the lodge doesn't do it justice it was so much better in real life. Thanks for the stay!

Mr A,

Had a fabulous stay at the little man pod, there were scones and brownies waiting for us on arrival along with milk in the fridge. The views from the hot tub were amazing, the pictures on the website dont do it justice! The pod was so clean and cosy, although if you are tall the length of the bed would be quite small for you, but thats the only criticism of the place.

Miss J,

An absolute gem of an accommodation in a stunning location. Everything was perfect which made it so difficult to leave. Can't wait to come back in 2024.

Miss L,

Lovely accommodation with a beautiful view to enjoy while relaxing in the amazing hot tub! The lodge was spotless and had nice little touches like a gift basket on arrival. We're looking forward to visiting again!

Mr H,

Really nice, the best cabin I have ever stayed in.

Mr B,

Perfect accommodation in a beautiful, picturesque area. Nice and handy for Keswick, immaculately clean and lovely little touches like fresh cakes on arrival. Hot tub was great. We will definitely be staying again!

The Little Man is wonderful. Perfect cosy pod for a relaxing and romantic weekend away. The hot tub was incredible and the views whilst in there were breathtaking! Everything has been thought of by the lovely owners so you needn't worry before going! The welcome basket was lovely and the brownies were delicious! Cannot fault a single thing. Even with the gloomy weather we had a great time and would absolutely return and recommend to all.

Miss L,

Superb pod, in a fantastic location with beautiful scenery what more could you ask for. The pod was actually better than what it looked like online, which is a first. I would go back again.

Mr R,

100% recommended

Mr N,

We stayed at the Little Man for 3 nights with our Labrador, it was perfect for us. It's a great location only 10 mins from Keswick and Thirlmere. It's really quiet on the site with really picturesque views. The cabin itself had everything you'd need for a few days, good cooking equipment and towels etc. On arrival there was some home baking which was such a lovely touch - and tasted amazing! We would definitely love to stay here again!

Mrs D,

Fantastic stay. Would highly recommended. Lovely location. We arrived to a scone and a cake which was so thoughtful and such a nice touch.

Miss W,

When we arrived it was all straight forward and the accomodation was superb the wee welcoming basket was really nice could not fault any thing about our weekend except the weather something you really can not legislate really good weekend
