Gorgeous getaway to rid the January blues

This is our second stay at Buttermere and it was just as fabulous as the first. It is like going from home to home. The lodge is spotless, the beds are so comfortable to sleep in and the location is perfect. Looking forward to booking our next trip already!

Great Holiday, Great Lodge but signs of Ageing.

Stayed at the Buttermere Lodge for the 2nd year running and this time we stayed on dates 16th September 2019 until 23rd September 2019 and we couldn't have picked a better week for the weather. The location of the Buttermere Lodge is a stones throw away from the Centre of Bowness which is ideal. When we arrived the lodge was as we remembered but on settling in to the lodge on our first day we noticed it wasn't as clean as we thought. We found a stain on the carpet near the bathroom door, toe-nail clippings in the sitting room, splash marks up the main doors and the kitchen cupboard doors and it was very dusty around the beds and this was only noticed when we nudged the bed slightly and it appeared to have loads of fluff. I would say though, that once we noticed this, we contacted Lake District Lodge Holidays and within an hour, the cleaner was there to give it a thorough clean and we were very happy with the lodge moving forward so the service was second to none. I think the lodge is starting to see small signs of wear and tear wit ha lot of spiders webs which I think should be cleaned for the arrival of each customer and the lodge is expensive having paid nearly £900 for a week away for a holiday outside of the kids school holidays. So overall, cleanliness was poor but got resolved quickly, customer service was excellent, still very comfortable and location was amazing but I think the cost is very steep for the time of year that we went and the cleanliness/age of the lodge.

Thanks for writing a review of your latest stay at Buttermere Lodge, Gary. We were sorry you had a couple of cleanliness issues and we were pleased to get these attended to promptly. The cleaners who prepare the lodge have been reminded of their responsibilities relating to this. The owners take great pride in the lodge and are always improving it's standard where they are able. There has been a new bathroom installed recently and the lodge has had the outside rails and spindles stained. As a returning guest you got a significant discount which reduced the price to well below what you have suggested above. Buttermere Lodge is very popular with guests all year round and a lovely place to stay especially with it's relaxing outside hot tub.

Buttermere Lodge Stay

Loved Buttermere lodge, very clean and comfortable and fantastic location. Handy for walking into Bowness and a great base for exploring the Lakes. We used the bar twice - played Bingo with the kids and used the arcade which they loved. Kettle was broken but replaced the next day and needed an airer to hang wet washing on which was provided the next day also - great service. We loved the hot tub - especially the kids. And it was so nice walking the dog round the park and down to the lake - stunning views of Windermere. Everyone very friendly and helpful, would definitely return and recommend to family and friends. We were lucky with the weather and only had 1 day of rain, so we went swimming that day to Choices up the road which was included in the lodge price. Thanks for the wine

Summer break

Been at this lodge 2 years ago and it is still the same think that the lodge could do with a bit off updating as for what your paying for the week isn’t good value so for these reasons will not book this lodge again

Review date: 02nd August 2019

Thank you for your review Russell. We were sorry to hear to read your comments and would welcome knowing what you feel needs updating. The owners stay at the lodge regularly and it generally receives very good feedback. Buttermere is a very popular lodge and one of the few with a hot tub at Fallbarrow Park which is available to rent.
