Hidden River Cabins are situated on a private estate in a beautiful and untouched part of Cumbria. They're simply unlike anything you'd find anywhere else and if you're looking for privacy, serenity and seclusion, this needs to be your next holiday destination. Surrounding the cabins are spectacular views of the Cumbrian countryside and the flowing River Lyne. If you're heading out for the day, Carlisle is only 20 minutes away and both Scotland and the Lake District are easily accessible. Parking is provided during your stay though the amount of cars will depend on the cabin you choose.
Each cabin has a luxurious interior with a wood burner in the middle of the open plan living and kitchen area. Bed linen, pillows, duvets and soft towels are all provided. A freezer is available for your catch of the day and there's a boot room for dirty wellies after a packed of walking, biking or fishing.
Due to the secluded location, the cabins are unable to get mobile phone reception, however sometimes it's good to just unplug, switch off and truly get away from it all.
You're more than welcome to bring your pets along with you for free. Dogs are welcome to sleep in a designated area downstairs in the cabins as long as they have their own beds.
