The Love Shack is available to book all year round, but please get in touch as far ahead as you can as we get so many more enquiries than we can accommodate. Especially if you’re after a weekend!
Last minute offers and discounts are featured on our Facebook page here.

We offer: 3 day short weekend breaks (Fri – Mon) and 4 day midweek breaks (Mon – Fri) as well as full 7 night weeks and longer breaks.
Our change days are invariably Friday or Monday, but we can very occasionally be more flexible, especially off peak. Full weeks can run from Friday or Monday.

Our prices range according to season from £780 – £1200 (full weeks) and £480 – £880 for short breaks.
Our least expensive months are January & February, and our Peak Season runs May until September inclusive, with a slight price drop in August.

Please check our diary (right), or contact us with your preferred dates and we will get back to you with availability and prices very quickly.

Longer stays of 2+ weeks can sometimes be accommodated (why not start that novel you’ve been planning?!) at lower rates – please ask.

We always offer return guests a little discount too!

Please read our Terms & Conditions here prior to booking.

Additional information

  • Cunsey is a 5 minute drive from the Windermere to Sawrey ferry terminal, 10 minutes drive from Hawkshead or 20 minutes drive from Newby Bridge.
  • Unfortunately there is little public transport in the area – although in summer there is a bus service nearby, and taxis are available.
  • The house is accessed from the village road up a 15m, unsurfaced private track with an (unlocked) access gate. There is parking in a private parking space or on the village road.
  • As the property is in an elevated position, there are stone steps and a wooden walkway of 14 shallow steps uphill between the entry porch and the house.
  • Regrettably this means that the house is unsuitable for wheelchair users or those with very limited mobility. Pets and infants should be supervised at all times.
  • The property exterior is sensitively lit at night, so even if you arrive after dark you needn’t worry.
