Wonderful second stay

This was our second stay at Elder Lodge and it didn't disappoint! Beautiful well equipped lodge in peaceful setting. The hot tub is an added bonus after an active day. Even the dog was well catered for with treats and toys. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

Return visit

Great stay again a return visit to this lodge. The highlight was we had a badger visit every night for some dry dog food which I placed on the stones outside the bedroom window (which I left slightly open so i could hear) i Laid in bed and listened for the crunching which did not take long. I then opened the window and used a torch to see the badger which did not seem to bother it.

A fabulous stay!

We have stayed on Limefitt Park (through Lake District Lodge Holidays) quite a few times now and Elder Lodge has to be one of the very best! The owners have thought of everything. We were very impressed with the amount of thought into making our dogs' stay very comfortable too. The lodge was very clean, equipped with everything you could need, the position is lovely and the hot tub is a real treat. The park is wonderful as ever and we have already booked to return to Elder Lodge next year - can't wait!

Our elder lodge joliday

Upon arrival at elder lodge, lodge was clean, tidy and well stocked ( household cleaning/ dish washer/washer tabs). Spacious and very well furnished. On the Monday I had to call the emergency phone number for lake district lodge holidays because there was no hot water. They sent someone out with 30 mins, for which he said we need a heating engineer. Heating engineer was there within 40 mins. New part to the boiler fixed a couple of hours later, all good. Lake district lodge holidays were excellent and the people who were sent out to us. Can't fault them and have booked 3 more times with them in other lodges. Bad luck the boiler broke down the why I gave GOOD referring to condition of lodge otherwise it would of been excellent.

Please accept our apologies once more on the inconvenience caused by the boiler breaking down and thank you for bringing it to our attention.

Comfortable, well maintained lodge.

Really enjoyed our stay, comfortable lodge with lots of extras. Charley enjoyed her dog treats and the walks. The lodge was situated close to the pub which was very handy both for breakfast and for evening meals and the hot tub was an added bonus.

Fantastic lodge!

Had a wonderful week staying in Elder Lodge. The lodge was very clean and comfortable. It was so well equipped, there was nothing we could want for. Loved the little extra touches like the bath robes, the biscuits on arrival and the dog treats (not me, the dog!). Our daughters loved the hot tub which was very clean and well maintained. I would definitely stay again and we are already looking to book for next year.

Review date: 07th June 2019

We are so pleased to hear you and your pooch thoroughly enjoyed your stay at this fantastic lodge and thank you very much for your excellent review Beth. Elder is a beautifully presented, very dog friendly two-bedroom lodge and the hot tub is a real treat, ideal for relaxing in after a long walk in the fells. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future for another unforgettable stay.
