Fantastic lodge with hot tub

Do not think you will find better value lodge on the park, excellent lodge with fantastic hot tub. Short distance to pub/restaurant and close to park exit. Very quiet spot though and private.

Acorn bank lodge

We spent 3 nights at the lodge at the beginning of January. The park itself is in a perfect location only minutes away from bowness. The lodge itself is well maintained, has all the necessities needed for cooking etc and keeping the lodge clean. The washing machine was an added bonus that isn't usually found in these types of lodge but with 2 young children on a rainy weekend was essential! The bottle of wine on arrival was a lovely touch. The location if the lodge on the park is good, not too far from the entrance and high up so you can enjoy the hot tub without being overlooked. The umbrella covering the hot tub was a well thought out added extra as it meant we could enjoy it despite the rain. The television is listed as a smart tv but we couldn't get the smart features to work as it wasnt connected to the internet but it had freeview so we could use that instead. Its definitely worth a visit and we would return.

Great location

Bathrooms need some TLC. So does elements of main bedroom. Evidence of damp. Could do with tongs in kitchen. Plus glasses and cutlery were dirty. Dirty mark on sofa and dirty towel hanging on door in second bedroom. So cleaners need to pay more attention. Other than that lodge was fine. Location is brilliant for onsite pub and so close to bowness. Hot tub great.

Thank you for your review. Your comments about the lodge and its cleanliness have been noted and will be passed on to the owners and cleaner respectively. We are especially surprised by those about the condition of the lodge given the bathroom, among other things, has recently been upgraded. Regrettably we had to inform you about the poor state in which you left the lodge (after just a 3 night stay) and feel this may well have prompted some of the comments in your review. These are very much at odds with other guest feedback. Acorn Bank is a very popular lodge which is always booked up well in advance and one of the very few at Fallbarrow which has it's own private hot tub.

Great well equipped lodge with hot tub and perfect location and site. Next to Bowness but when on the site, you wouldn’t even realise you was next to the town.

Another thoroughly enjoyable stay at Acorn Bank

Our 3rd stay at Acorn Bank and we have booked again for next year ! It’s good to receive a 10% discount for repeat customers and the £10 charge for a dog is excellent compared to other resorts that can charge up to £50. We particularly like the great location within the park which is near to all amenities and also the privacy it offers particularly with regard to the hot tub. The welcome bottle of wine this time was a nice touch. The lodge has been newly decorated with new sofa, dining chairs and curtains though for a dog friendly lodge I’m surprised it is still carpeted in the living room ? ( I make sure the whole carpet is covered !) Just a couple of house keeping issues- only half a toilet roll was supplied between 2 bathrooms and a dog toy was found underneath the sofa so obviously carpet wasn’t cleaned properly though my dog was more than happy at finding a new ball! The outside decking area gets covered in leaves which makes it very slippy so leaving a stiff brush would be very useful. Would definitely recommend this lodge however.

Thank you for your review, Lynn and we are so pleased to hear you had another enjoyable stay at Acorn Bank. With that said thank you also for raising a couple of things with us and we shall follow these up with the housekeepers, and similarly pass on all you have said to the lodge owners for their reference. This is a great place to stay and we are delighted you thought so too. We look forward to you returning again next year!

Lovely stay at fallbarrow park.

Loved the location of the park. The lodge was clean and spacious. Bed was comfortable. Hot tub was great after a long walk with the dog. Only a couple of minutes walk to Bowness. Lots of choice for eating out( most places dog friendly). We will be definitely coming back soon. Thank you to the owners for letting us stay in your beautiful lodge and for the bottle of wine.

Acorn bank Lodge

On arrival at the lodge my first impression was it had a lot of stairs and the decking was in a very poor state. The double entrance door was filthy at the bottom and the decking was disgustingly filthy. The hot tub was great but the trees surrounding it desperately need cutting back on a few occasions big branches did fall onto us which was very dangerous considering we had a 3 month old baby and a small dog with us.

Review date: 12th July 2019

Thank you for your review Karlie. We were sorry to hear a couple of things weren't quite right for your stay and we have made the owners aware of your feedback. Your comments about the deck are somewhat surprising as it was jet washed and treated only in June. It also seems you were surprised by the fact that the lodge had a number of steps even though the pictures and website description make this very clear. The trees are managed by the park owners themselves and they have been asked to look at whether the branches need any attention. They aren't however considered dangerous although it is inevitable that when it is windy the odd small branch or twig may break off. Acorn Bank is a very popular lodge which enjoys a private and elevated location within Fallbarrow Park. ADDED JANUARY 2020: The outside deck and steps have had new anti slip composite boards fitted which greatly enhance the lodge appearance.
