We had a great stay in this lodge. Although a bit more compact than the lodge we usually stay in it felt really cosy, especially with the dark nights drawing in. The addition of the Sky package was brilliant and the instructions on how to use it were clear. The location was great as we could walk into Windermere and it was just down the road from the visitor centre. The only downside was you had to buy an entertainment pass for £15 to access the bar and restaurant on site and as we were planning on only using it once we didn't bother.

Despite the lockdown and pandemic this was a great break. Lodge excellent in every way. Position and sitting out veranda

We would definitely stay at Grandpa's lodge again, in real life its a lovely space and has been well looked after. Good location on a quiet avenue within the park and just 2 minute walk from the lakeside and restaurant.
