The Tranquil Otter’s eight separately secluded luxurious lake-side lodges blend modern comfort and convenience with the beauty of undisturbed wildlife.  Take your rest beneath the Solway’s dark skies and awake to only the lapping of the lake, the calls of the wildfowl and the rustle of our woodlands.

With a log fire, a hot tub on the lakeside decking, its own rowing boat plus every mod con such as central heating and powerful wi-fi, a Tranquil Otter lodge offers all that’s needed for the most restful holiday.  All our lodges are built with a wide range of physical and other abilities in mind being exceptionally peaceful and private, wheelchair-accessible and super-convenient ; so we are a hidden gem with something for all seekers of peace and privacy – not excluding well-behaved pets.”
