Luxury Lodge with Hot tub near the Lake District 

The Tranquil Otter is your hottub retreat.

5-star luxury lodges with hot tubs

Discover the Tranquil Otter, a private nature reserve with eight lakeside log cabins all south-facing with fabulous views across the lake. We offer short breaks, long weekends as well as weeks during peak time. Explore the natural beauty of the Lake District as well as Carlisle, City of the Lakes.

Lakeside Lodge, hot tub, wifi, boat

Tranquil Otter log cabins are unique, each at the water's edge. The lake is teeming with wildlife, enjoy watching swans, moorhens, woodpeckers by day and sunset and stars by night all from your private hot tub. The lake at the heart of the Tranquil Otter is known as Thurstonfield Lough.

Your own boat

Each log cabin comes with its own flat bottomed boat, get out and enjoy the lake. We can provide buoyancy jackets for young children and adults.

Nature Reserve

The Tranquil Otter is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), look out for roe deer and don't be surprised if you see a little white goat out exploring the woods, her name is Dinky and she likes to explore. Hazel is less adventurous.
