Another lovely relaxing break

We have stayed at Esk Pike on several occasions and have never been disappointed. The lodge is perfect for us and in a great location. Staff on site are all very friendly and helpful, and communication is excellent, with texts and emails giving information and contact details leading up to the break. Cannot fault anything. We have had another lovely break, and it was great seeing the family of deer again wandering around in the mornings!

Cozy, relaxing simply amazing stay

We stayed here for our honeymoon as we've always wanted to stay in a traditional log cabin and this did not disappoint. On first arrival the reception was so friendly clean and looked so picturesque. As we were approaching our cabin we were amazed at how private and spacious it was with lovely views through all the trees it just felt cozy before we got through the door. The inside of the cabin was very well kept clean tidy and again every room was cozy with nice little finishing touches. We didn't expect board games and a selection of dvds in the livingroom this was a nice little touch for family's. The hot tub was amazing, clean and a lovely experience to sit under the little hut which made the hot tub private even though nobody was over looking it anyway but it was a nice finishing touch. We loved every minute of it and are that impressed we are thinging of bringing our girls back in the future. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Best weekend break ever!

Directions were spot-on! Thank You! :D Fabulous little lodge, gorgeous views. Easy to access. By the time I'd poured my first glass of wine, the rest of the crew were already in the Hot-Tub! :D Great range of DVD's provided......although Scooby Doo went on repeat (Son has Autistic Spectrum Disorder) :D Board games too, excellent! 4 minute walk to reception. Friendly staff there, good food, and no queues at the bar! Bonus! :D Everything was just perfect, and enjoyed by all :D wish we could have stayed longer.

Thanks for your review, Mark and we were pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at Esk Pike. We would like to think guests will venture off the park to sample some of the many lovely pubs and restaurants in the area. As you mention Esk Pike is a lovely comfortable 'log cabin in the woods' complete with it's own secluded and private, covered hot tub. We do hope you will return again very soon!

Perfect break

Our stay in Esk Pike lodge was just what we needed: peaceful, relaxed and comfortable. The lodge was so cosy and in a gorgeous location on the site, with a lovely view over the trees. We were incredibly lucky with the weather (25°C and sun every day!) so we spent almost every evening on the beautiful wrap around balcony, enjoying the lake district night air next to the twinkling lights in the trees. We even used the hottub, despite the heat! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would love to make the long journey up to the lakes to visit again!

Cosy lodge but dated

Cosy lodge slightly dated just little things disappointed, location not ideal top of a steep hill not ideal if you have mobility issues although very quiet. Many of the messages in lodge book thanked for gifts of fizz and chocs (none on our arrival,must be for selected guests) Feel as though there better value for money at other lodges we've stayed in on the park

Review date: 07th July 2018

Thank you for your review, Stephen and whilst we take on board all you have said and will certainly pass on your comments to the lodge owners for their reference, the lodge details including photos and location are available to view on our website. Having said that we will look to see if we can make this any clearer and we apologise for any inconvenience caused to your stay. We also note your further comment regarding gifts on arrival - we can indeed arrange for delivery of fizz, chocolates or flowers to be delivered to the lodge at the request of a guest prior to a stay. Perhaps worth noting for future reference. Esk Pike is a traditional log cabin with hot tub and located in a secluded area of the park. Perfect for a romantic getaway or simply as a base to explore the Lakes.
