This was our 6th visit to the tranquil Otter and this place never fails to deliver ! Always spotlessly clean, always a warm welcome and a team who will go the extra mile to make your stay extra Special. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone wanting a peaceful, relaxing break away from it all.

We stayed in Dunnock lodge for our honeymoon. It was absolutely perfect. The lodge was so clean and everything you could think of was provided. We ordered a hamper in and I'd recommend getting one. It is such a peaceful location and the view from our lodge was brilliant. The lodges are next to each other (although not too close),... More

My partner and I have just returned from a 4 night stay with The Tranquil Otter. Absolutely stunning location and the lodges are wonderful. There is so much to do nearby but on the other hand you could just as easily not leave. The lodge was fantastic, very clean and welcoming. So handy having all cooking utensils provided. The boat...

Just returned from our second visit, which was just as good as the first. We arrived to a warm welcome, and found the cabin to be immaculately clean and well equipped. We've been in both Autumn and Summer so it's been lovely to see the contrasting seasons.

Beautiful location. Relaxing and peaceful. Boat and jacuzzi are great touches and were well used. Stayed in fieldfare. It was great with a comfortable bed and was well equipped. Was 5* although the only area that needs upgrading is the bathroom to come in line with the rest of the beautiful lodge. Would definitely go again!!!! Would recommend.

The lodge was in the best setting ever, the title the Tranquil Otter reflects how it really is. Little touches by the staff, ie anniversary banner, spotless amenities, conveniently situated rurally in secluded location, but close to Carlisle.Beautiful lake and the boat was lovely, with scenic walks with our dogs around the lake,

Excellent!!! Amazing!!! The setting, the lodge, the staff were 5 star. The lodge was spotless and a very high standard. The setting was definitely 'Tranquil!'. Will be visiting again soon. Can't wait!!

Me and my wife stayed her for a week after our wedding and we could not have asked for more. The owners and staff are very polite and couldn't help you more. The cabin we stayed in was of the highest standard equipped with anything you could imagine, clearly 5 star. The kitchen was immaculate and very well equipped, the... More

2nd time at the Tranquil Otter staying in the Heron. Such a lovely place and views of lough stunning. Staff are so helpful and friendly. Carlisle only a 15 min drive and supermarket closer. Very near to everything but nicely tucked away from the norms of everyday life. Can't wait to go back next year. Thank you.

Myself and my partner spent 4 nights here for my birthday. From the moment we were met, until the time came to leave, we could not have asked for more. We stayed in Gadwall and it had everything you could possibly need and more. The view is stunning no matter what time of day, with plenty of wildlife to watch.... More
