A well equipped luxury lodge just a stones throw from the pub.

This lodge is spacious, well equipped and comfortable. The walk in wardrobe is especially useful with lots of storage space. I enjoyed the hot tub very much it's not overlooked and therefore, gives adequate privacy. if you intend to visit the Haybarn, this lodge is just a few steps away. the dog bowls, throws, towels and doggy treats were an added bonus. I fully intend to use this lodge again in the future. We had a very enjoyable stay.

Elder Lodge

Our long weekend at Elder Lodge was excellent - we would definitely go back. The lodge cared for all our needs and especially the dogs they have thought of everything. The lodge has plenty of living space and the hot tub was fantastic. There is a good track for walking the dogs behind the lodge park but not suitable for people who are unsteady on there feet as it is very uneven and rocky. Dogs still to be kept on leads.

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.

We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed another wonderful stay in Elder Lodge Judith, thank you for your excellent review and ratings. This lodge is indeed beautiful and the owner takes great pride in making the lodge homely for all guests - including the ones with four legs! Elder is perfectly located for long walks and it has lovely views across the park and to the fells beyond. The hot tub is delightful and as you say, perfect after a long day. Thank you for recommending this lodge and we hope to welcome you back in the future for another great stay.

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!
