Enjoy an escape by the sea in this unique rough-luxe beach shack in the Lake District National Park, and rediscover the simple life on the shores of the Irish Sea. Snug interiors, crashing waves and the starriest of night skies makes this private seaside beach cabin complete with bubbly hot-tub the most inspiring of seaside retreats.

Our housekeeper Nicola maintains the highest standards of cleanliness. She thoroughly cleans and disinfects between every stay.

The space
Combining varnished wooden floors with snug wraps & blankets, bleached clapboard exteriors and an indulgent off-grid charm, Lachra is the epitome of seaside getaways. This unique self-catering beach cabin, popular with couples and mini-mooners in search of a romantic retreat, or a seaside base from which to explore Wainwright's fells, is the perfect place to reconnect with the important things in life. When the sun melts into the Irish Sea in a blaze of orange glory, sip crisp white wine on the decking or in the hot tub after a good days walk, and watch sequinned skies blanket the horizon.

Bedrooms and Bathroom

The cosy bedroom space in the loft at Lachra boasts a double futon bed adorned with squishy cushions, thick blankets and the finest of linens to ensure a blissful night’s sleep. Downstairs is a cosy twin bedroom with wonderful views over the beach and the sea. The small separate shower-room is perfect for washing off sandy bodies after a day on the beach.


Perched on the edge of a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and right on the beachfront, Lachra is a mile from the small village of Silecroft where the local pub boasts log fires, a range of real ales and locally sourced food from the Lake District. The beach at Silecroft is one of the finest beaches in the UK; grab a glass of wine, submerge yourself in the hot tub and watch the surfers battle the westerlies or the horse riders as they take to the beach.

Lachra's garden is large enough and safe enough for older kids to pitch a tent or two, but not so large that they can't hear you call when it's time for tea!

Dogs will love the beach at low tide and are very welcome at Lachra.

My wife Debs and I fell in love with this little cabin the first time we saw it, 15 years ago. We didn't realise that the UK could do sunsets like those we saw in Ibiza! That's when we added the hot tub. We were reluctant at first to share our 'little piece of heaven' but we're so glad that we did. Our guests love the place as much as we do and look after it as much as we do. That's why we're happy to share it with our wonderful guests time and again. I'm always on the end of the phone if ever you need me. Mike. x
