Your Woodland Retreat

The Love Shack was created by and for the discerning traveller who is looking for understated luxury without a vast environmental price-tag.
The Love Shack is managed personally by the people who built it – Karen & Adam, who have shared this truly unique home since 2009. We now have many regular guests who return year after year to enjoy the tranquility and architectural beauty of this award-winning gem of a house.

Great care was taken to build the house sustainably, and it is finished and maintained to an impeccably high specification, situated in its own small fenced woodland with nearby parking and stunning views of Lake Windermere, woodland and open fields. Many species of birds and an occasional red squirrel frequent the mature trees surrounding the house.

“One of the best cabins in the world”
The Guardian

“We’ve enjoyed furnishing the house comfortably and ethically, with a characterful mix of bespoke pieces by a local joiner, curios and collectibles (mainly 20th C Modern) as well as new classics such as the circular Heal’s ‘Love Seat’.

The interior is decorated with local reclaimed timber, natural wallcoverings and organic paints. Low-energy lighting is used throughout, and we have a beautiful moss roof on the house, visible from the bed!”
