Massive thank you

There's literally nothing that either of us could fault, if i was nit picking then the only thing i would say is the bath doesn't fill up that quick but that isnt a big issue at all. The lodge was very clean and we was made up with all the kitchen utensils and all the cleaning products. We felt at home within 5 minutes of arriving at the lodge. Beds was comfy, loved the interior decorating, extremely cosy and the lodge is in a nice little area. Overall we loved it for our first UK break and have recommended to many people already. Massive thank you

Lovely stay

We stayed in Acorn Lodge for 4 nights and we couldn’t fault it. The lodge had everything you needed. It is situated close to the lake where it was peaceful and we enjoyed most evening being able to relax on the decking area as we were lucky with the weather. We wouldn’t hesitate to book again. Thank you for the lovely stay.

Lodge with plenty of room

Acorn Lodge had good accommodation. I wasn’t as keen on the location of this lodge as I have been on the location of other lodges as I felt the lodges were too close together where Acorn Lodge was located. I also didn’t like the fact that the lodge next door had a hot tub right outside our bedroom window. If people were in it and you went to the bedroom for anything you felt like you were intruding so I shut the curtains. You could also see them getting in and out of it from the living room. I wouldn’t have like that if I had been in the other lodge either to be honest. Cleanliness of the lodge was OK. We have stayed on this site a few times and being picky I would honestly say I never think the lodges are spotlessly clean. I hoovered a couple of times and when I moved the bin in the kitchen there were white dog hairs behind it which weren’t off our black dog. I always think the lodges are cleaner when we leave them than they are when we arrive.

Thank you for your review, Kate and we are sorry to hear a few things were not quite to your satisfaction. We take on board all your comments and shall raise them with the lodge owners and the housekeepers. Also noting your comment about the location of the neighbouring hot tub we are sorry for the inconvenience caused. Acorn Lodge is on a family friendly park and most lodges are relatively close together. Despite your comments we do hope you enjoyed your stay at Acorn Lodge. A very popular place in the heart of the Lakes.

Outstanding Retreat!

Acorn Lodge absolutely wonderful! Lovely lodge located 2 minutes from the wonderful Lake Windermere. Excellent stay in a beautiful lodge decorated in the best of taste with all the home comforts. Offering clean accommodation with special touches just to make it even more special. Lovely welcome pack. We could not have asked for anything more. Well maintained site offering swimming pool,spa shop and nightly entertainment. All in all a brilliant package being central to many places of interest and offering plenty to do. Lakeland Lodges offered excellent customer service and I must admit the free entry to the Choices Spa a few minutes away was a bonus! Would definately recommend Acorn Lodge and Lakeland lodges!
