About Holme Wood BothyA ‘stone tent’ warmed by a log-burner, set just metres from the shores of Loweswater.
Holme Wood Bothy offers basic accommodation in the most spectacular of locations, just a few metres from the shores of Loweswater. The six-sleeper bothy is effectively a stone tent with a few added comforts such as a wood-burning stove and a basic kitchen area.
Its wild and remote location allows you to disconnect from modern life for a few days. Go hiking around the woods and lake in search of wildlife or watch the stars as night falls. Discover the secret waterfall of Holme Force, which hides amongst the woods or go further afield to the peaks of Lake District.
Preferred changeover days are Fridays and Mondays with 3, 5 and 7 night stays available.
