30th Birthday

Spent the week here to celebrate my 30th birthday and had the best time! If we weren't enjoying a gin in the hot tub we were out exploring all the sites of Windermere and surrounding areas with the dogs. I was very happy to find such a lovely lodge was dog friendly. I do these holidays frequently and this was the nicest lodge in the best location that we have stayed in. Pretty much equidistant from the centre of Windermere and Ambleside, and plenty to do on site. I'll be coming back as soon as possible.

Back again ,

We have been many times to this lodge and enjoyed it ,but i think time is catching up with the out side it looks well worn and old ,, we used this place because it has a hot tub ,on the first night it was only warm,next night it was fine ,,next night it was cold again,so we only used it once which is not good for the price we paid,,, the on suite toilet took forever to refill,
