    “The lodge was filthy.”

    Dog hairs everywhere, stains on seating, crumbs and debris under sofa cushion. Carpets dirty. There were canisters left from previous occupant with coffee, solidifying in bottom of canister. We had to sit on towels There were only 3 usable mugs, lodge slept 6. Other mugs chipped and cracked. We contacted Sykes, were told they would supply more towels, they never arrived.

    Dog hairs everywhere, stains on seating, crumbs and debris under sofa cushion. Carpets dirty. There were canisters left from previous occupant with coffee, solidifying in bottom of canister. We had to sit on towels There were only 3 usable mugs, lodge slept 6. Other mugs chipped and cracked. We contacted Sykes, were told they would supply more towels, they never arrived. Also told more mugs to be supplied, never arrived. They did say they’d send a cleaner, we left cushions off the sofa so they could see the problem, the cleaners came, removed one round stain on sofa, put all cushions back in place without cleaning underneath them. We did ask to be moved lodges, unable to offer anything else Very disappointing, we have been promised a small amount of compensation but this will not improve our thoughts on the lodge and we will never use Sykes again. Absolutely terrible stay and customer service

Offering guests a homely interior to enjoy when you're not out exploring the wonders of the park and beyond, this property makes a fantastic choice for families or groups of friends seeking a fun-filled escape to Cumbria, with the wonderful attractions, shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants at Ambleside and Windermere all just a scenic drive away. Enter the property up the few steps onto your own private decking, before stepping into the wonderful social spot of the open-plan living space; in the winter months, the electric fire awaits to warm you up after a day of rambling, bringing an extra homely aura to the room, while the decking makes the perfect place to soak up the sun with a refreshing beverage in hand in the summer. Spend evenings unwinding in front of the Smart TV while you wait for your dinner to cook in the amply-equipped kitchen, home to a gas oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and even a washing machine, it has everything you could want for a self-catered stay. Gather around the dining table for an evening of family-fun board games, before retreating to one of the three bedrooms to rest your head; take your pick from a master double bedroom with its own en-suite basin and WC, and two equally delightful twins, all rooms boasting their own TVs so you can catch up with your favourite shows from the comfort of the covers.
