Easter break

Our second stay at Horseshoe Lodge. Again can’t fault anything. The setting is idyllic. The lodge is beautifully kept and has everything you need for a home from home feel. I highly recommend it although hope by doing so that it won’t be fully booked next time we want to stay!

Relaxation and amazing views

We had a wonderful week here - it was just my 6 year old daugher and I, as unfortunately our friends had to cancel last minute, so we had the whole place to ourselves! We have stayed at Limefitt before, but this lodge was much nicer than our previous one. Despite it being February, the lodge was cosy and warm. The views from the main living area are a pleasure to wake up to in the mornings, the park is peaceful yet has a good pub and play area for children, and there is loads to do in the local area. We hope to return with more people in tow next time!

Thank you for the review, Amy and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay at Horseshoe Lodge. This is a great place to relax and unwind. Modern, well-equipped and beautifully presented – and the views are fantastic! Although your friends had to cancel, it is pleasing to hear you had a wonderful week with your daughter. Just perfect.

Perfect break

Our stay at Horseshoe Lodge was perfect. A couple of lights weren’t working on arrival but after a phone call they were fixed immediately. Punctual service. The lodge was beautiful, clean and had a lovely welcoming feel. The setting was idyllic. Can’t wait to go back.

Horseshoe Lodge

Horseshoe Lodge is an amazing place to stay. It has everything you require and more that you don't. One of the best lodges I've ever stayed in. Beautifully clean, very roomy. The kitchen/dining/living room had windows to 3 sides providing beautiful views all around. The decking is extensive and outdoor furniture very nice indeed, there was even a slab situated for a bbq. I would definitely recommend and would very much like to return. Limefitt Park is a fantastic location, on the Kirkstone Pass road but only minutes from Windermere/Bowness/Ambleside. The perfect lodge and location for a perfect, relaxing retreat!

Another great stay

Stopped again at horseshoe lodge for the third time, couldn’t fault the lodge or park. We used the onsite pub a bit more this time and would recommend it highly.

Thank you for leaving such great comments and perfect ratings, Bryan. Horseshoe Lodge is fantastic. A modern and immaculately presented three bedroom luxury lodge with splendid views of the fells. We are so pleased to hear you all enjoyed your stay, a wonderful place for a family break. We look forward to welcoming you for another in the near future.

Weeks family break in August.

This was our first break to the Lake District and we travelled as a family of 5. Age ranges from 10 to 46. Absolutely loved it from day one with so much to explore in so little time so will definitely be going back. Think we have found our own slice of heaven.

Perfect lodge for exploring

Having stayed in various lodges in the lake district Horseshoe Lodge was by far the most impressive. Having 6 adults in 1 lodge I thought we would be tight for space on occasions but that was not the case. Spacious lodge.. with comfortable beds.. with even better views. Central for visiting all different areas around Lake Windermere. Would definately love to visit Horseshoe Lodge again.

We stayed for a week in Horseshoe Lodge, a family of 5, the youngest being 14.

Having left Kent in temperatures of 33 degrees, it was rather refreshing to arrive at Limefitt Park in much cooler conditions! We happened to pick the week that the drought broke for our holiday, which we probably wouldn't have been happy about any other year, but was actually rather a relief on this occasion, and although it rained at some point most days it didn't spoil our week. Horseshoe Lodge is most definitely the best self catering accommodation we have stayed in and it is in an ideal position on the park, with an uninterrupted view across the fields of Troutbeck. Even though the school holidays had started, we found the park to be quiet in comparison to other sites we have stayed on at this time of year, although The Haybarn seemed understaffed for the time of year, usually with only 1 serving behind the bar in the evenings. Horseshoe Lodge had everything we needed for our stay: a bath and hand towel for each person, and very well equipped kitchen, plenty of crockery and cutlery, hangers in the wardrobes, and a small amount of hand soap for the bathrooms. It was really spacious inside and plenty of room outside on the decking aswell, The one useful item we did take with us was a clothes airer, as there wouldn't have been anywhere to dry wet swimwear/towels otherwise (we didn't make use of the washer/dryer). We enjoyed days out at Ullswater, Derwent Water, visited Beatrix Potter's house and cruised on Windermere itself. Limefitt Park is ideally placed to access many walks and is only a few minutes drive from WIndermere, and the nearest supermarket. Special mention to Marie in The Haybarn who went out of her way to ensure my diabetic husband had a meal the evening we arrived, as we were just too late to order food, but she went out of her way to accomodate him. We had a few meals in there over the week, and all of us enjoyed the food.

4 night stay

We booked a 4 night stay at the horse shoe lodge in July and had a great time the lodge was very clean and was just like being at home. There are a number of walks to go on that start from limefitt park so the location is very good as well. Overall I would rate it 10/10 and will definitely be back at some point. Oh and the on site pub is very nice with great food would also recommend trying the mortal man hotel at the top of the road for something to eat.
