A wonderful break at Badgers Rest Limefitt Park

My partner and I wanted a quiet relaxed break where we could take our dog. Badgers Rest at Limefitt Park was perfect for us. The lodge was very comfortable and very well equipped, it was like home from home. The views from the lodge were beautiful and being self catering we could eat in or out depending how we felt. The parks amenities were good with a pub The Haybarn from which we had a couple of meals that we took away to eat in the lodge. There was a reception with small shop that was very handy. The park had a lot of open areas to walk the dog. A lovely holiday which we would highly recommend.

Very enjoyable stay we return every each sometimes more than once

Lovely lodge with great facilities. The views are amazing we never grow tired of them. Lake District Lodge Holidays are very easy to deal with, there are very professional and always reply to any query within a timely manner. The only downside to the lodge is it is starting to look a little tired and has a little mould in the en-suite. Apart from this no issues.

Needs some tlc

Lovely peaceful location. Lodge itself needs some tlc. Wallpaper in bigger twin room was torn, mould in ensuite, headboard not even attached and coming to bits as poor quality in bigger twin. Bed linen needs changing as looks old and very well used. Sill on window is off too. General decor could do with a revamp but maybe that's the owners taste but doesn't justify the star rating, neither does the park for that matter. The steps onto the decking (only access route) were just being replaced as we arrived (3pm) reception weren't aware, we found out on arrival to lodge. The guy was lovely but this made it difficult to unpack car as no steps to get in so we had to pass heavy bags etc up to each other. I used to be a 5 star holiday cottage ower myself for 3 years and held a high standard hence these comments. I would have been embarrassed to charge just shy of £600 for this quality of lodge. Im afraid hiking tbe prices up because it's near Windermere shouldn't be allowed without the lodge justifying it. We would return if you put some money into the lodge and clean it up. P.s tbe used bbq and lip balm in drawer must have been an added feature. I also left something which I know is in the lodge but apparently cleaners didn't find it so hopefully your next guests did

Thank you for your review, Lydia. We were sorry to hear some things weren't quite right for your stay. As we indicated following comments in your after stay feedback sheet, all the things you have mentioned in your review had already been noted and passed on to the owners. They have either been addressed immediately or will be at the end of the busy summer season. We apologise that some maintenance work was being completed as you arrived. The owners asked us that morning to replace the steps which were damaged over the weekend. The lodge itself does not have an official star rating but an average 'review score rating' based on guest feedback. We find this a more accurate way of guests knowing what standard of accommodation they are staying in (when read in conjunction with the description and viewing the pictures). Limefitt Park has been awarded a Visit Britain 5 star rating and we are surprised you feel that it is not merited. Badgers Rest is a very popular spacious lodge offering excellent value accommodation for families with the benefit of a fabulous view too.

Badgers rest lovely location

Badgers rest is a lovely lodge in a wonderful location, very spacious and adequately equipped. Does however need a little TLC. Could be a lot better. Plenty of room for a large family and dogs and very calming when inside.

Superb location, perfect for kids of all ages

A three night stay at Badgers Rest was fantastic. Excellent spot on the edge of the park, really comfortable lodge boasting breath-taking views of the valley. My son aged 13 loved the space and goals nearby for playing football and my friend's 4 year old loved the zip wire and swings at the park. We enjoyed a beautiful walk which started from behind the pub and led up to give us stunning views of Lake Windermere. The pub on site is really friendly and well staffed - our meal there was very good.

We loved Limefitt park.

The lodge felt very luxurious and the space for our family was very good. It was cosy and warm an the kitchen was modern and fully equipped. I enjoy having time to cook lovely meals for the family. The views down the valley were stunning and in the mornings we sat and watched the deer playing. Hardly used the car as we walked the paths and bridle paths from the park. An excellent stay, thank you.
