Get away

We stayed for 2 nights as a little get away for our 15th wedding anniversary with our dog Betsy. Spinney is spotlessly clean, fitted out to a high standard and in a wonderful surrounding. We had a fantastically relaxing time and I can honestly say the only thing missing was some kitchen tongs (and some sunshine- but I guess that's out of anyone's control!)

I booked this as a surprise form boyfriends birthday. Safe to say him and the dog absolutely loved it. The lodge itself was perfect. So cosy and had everything you needed. Plenty of radiators throughout, so lovely and warm (which I was worried about) The whole lodge was spotless ! Was about a 15 min drive to the nearest town which was perfect. The path at the farm was a lovely little walk through the fields. Would 100% recommend and hopefully come back for longer next time.

Great lodge

Lovely clean and warm lodge. Very quiet site. A little out the way down narrow lanes. This was the only problem we found.

Thank you for your comments, James. Whilst we note the location was not quite right for you we are pleased to hear you that you enjoyed staying at Spinney. This cosy and luxurious lodge is super equipped for a relaxing and comfortable stay in the Lakes. A rural location and beautiful views, yet only a short drive to the bustling little town of Bowness-on-Windermere. High Borrans, Spinney is a wonderful place to simply relax, unwind and enjoy the peace and tranquillity. For more information on any lodge within our portfolio please visit our website. Alternatively, a member of our bookings team will be very happy to help and advise on suitable lodges and the location. We will be delighted to welcome you again in the future.

Easter break

I stayed in Spinney for three nights over the easter weekend with my partner and our dog. Absolutely loved the lodge, it’s decorated to a very high standard and is very comfortable and homely. The location is perfect, very secluded and quiet but only a short distance from Windermere and Bowness. Lovely walk on the bridal path from the farm which is perfect for walking dogs. Met the owner Cathy briefly on out last day, she was very friendly and welcoming! We’re already planning our next visit!
