Limestone Lodges are three luxury self-catering lodges with hot tubs nestling on the edge of the Lake District National Park, only 5 minutes from Bassenthwaite Lake and 15 minutes from Keswick. The lodges sit in the small peaceful village of Bothel famed for its magnificent views across to the Solway coast and Scottish hills beyond. Beautiful open countryside is just on your doorstep and the lodges are perfect for a luxury family holiday or a romantic escape for couples.
We have a special arrangement with nearby Armathwaite Hall allowing all our guests free inclusive use of their multi award-winning luxury spa near the shoreline of Bassenthwaite Lake. Armathwaite is only a 5 minute drive from Limestone Lodges and leisure facilities include a 16m infinity edge pool and an outdoor hot tub both overlooking lovely gardens, a steam room, sauna, aroma room and state of the art gym. Pamper spa treatments can be booked for an extra charge direct with the spa.

The lodges are only a few miles from the Northern Lake District with its spectacular lakes and fells. Bassenthwaite Lake is a mere 5 miles away and the lodges are surrounded by a choice of outdoor activities.
Both Keswick and Cockermouth are only a 15 minute drive away and historic Carlisle is within a 30 minute drive. The Scottish border is only 6 miles beyond Carlisle making the lodges a great base for exploring.
Amenities are close to hand with the Greyhound Inn, our great local pub serving hearty food, situated only a short walk away.
