Post NY break in the Lakes

First time booking to stay in a lodge and it didn’t disappoint, in fact surpassed my expectations completely. Very much home from home, the only downside if I was to be picky was the size of the kitchen and lack of work space to cook. The bedrooms the lounge and bathrooms were spot on. Our 4 year old loved it and it really felt homely, from the corner sofa to the TV and media equipment! The absolute knock out for us was the Hot Tub, literally we were in it every eve after our walks and in the morning too! Really made our stay that little bit extra special. Would highly recommend this lodge and management of it. We had an issue with the oven on a Friday night and they were out within 30mins to sort for us. Fabulous customer service! Will definitely come again and recommend to friends! Thank you!!

Thank you for your review, Louise and letting us know you had a great time at Badgers Hollow. We are so pleased to hear it surpassed your expectations and although we note your comments that the kitchen lacked space it is fully functional and super equipped to cater for families. We were very pleased to hear the problem with the oven was quickly resolved and with little impact on your stay. Badgers Hollow is a wonderful holiday retreat, and indeed the hot tub is most enjoyable. We are delighted you all enjoyed your stay and thrilled to hear you will be returning.

Absolutely fantastic

Absolutely loved this lodge. The decor the vibe, just everything was great. Had no trouble getting there and it was only a 10 minute drive from bowness. The site was on the lake too so it was lovely for a late stroll. The hot tub was great and private, with fantastic ambiance. They decorated for Christmas too which made it even better. The tv and sound system was lovely and the beds were so comfy. I loved the addition of an en suite and would definitely stay here again. Could not fault in any way.

Ideal location, and lovely break

We had a lovely winter break in this lodge, the location is ideal for Ambleside, Windermere, Bowness etc. It was ideal for us, our little boy enjoyed the park, swimming pool, and chasing after the ducks by the lake. The lodge was clean, and had all the facilities we needed. We will be back!

It was a very nice peaceful few days away really did not want to come home. The lodge was nice, clean and well equipped a dishwasher would have been nice so we could relax more. The only thing that was needed was a mop for the wet room we had to roll towels up to stop the water running into the bedroom. I did like the lodge but I would look at one of the larger ones next time as they seem to have more access room around the hot tubs. We didn't have a grill either in the oven, if there is one we could not use as all the symbols have worn off around the controls. Access to a movie channel or Netflix would have been nice even if you had an additional charge. I took my mum away for a few days after we lost my Dad 3 months ago so we were not interest in going out which most people would probably do it was a chill out holiday, don't get me wrong we had a really great time can't wait till next time, hot tub aarrr!!

Thank you for your review, Debby and we were pleased you enjoyed your stay at Badgers Hollow. We have passed on your suggestions for improvements to the owners for their reference. Thank you for these. Badgers Hollow is a very popular lodge to stay in particularly with it's 2 double bedrooms and the private outside hot tub. It's also perfect for a 'chill out holiday' if that's what is wanted!

Lovely lodge

Along with my husband, daughter, her boyfriend and our dog we all had a wonderful four night stay at Badgers Hollow. It is in a quite location. It is clean, cosy and well equipped including a large American fridge with an ice dispenser which was well used. The hot tub was brilliant and used every day . We were also fortunate to have good weather and sat outside on the patio area.We enjoyed it so much the four nights went over to quickly but we hope to go back next year.

Lovely luxurious lodge

Absolutely wonderful stay in this beautiful lodge! Although the weather was not too kind during the week, coming back to such a lovely lodge with the added benefit of the hot tub was superb! Very quiet location on the park which made for a lovely relaxing week. Everything we could possibly need was provided, including the ice dispenser in the huge American style fridge freezer! Would highly recommend this lodge and we will definitely be returning. We would also recommend the on site restaurant - good food and good customer service too.
