Jinnyspinner Lodge

Another stay at Jinnyspinner, superb location next to the river. Even though we have booked again for March 2019, the lodge could do with a little updating, especially the bedding in the main bedroom.

Review date: 09th October 2018

Thank you for your comments, Paul and we take on board all you have said. We will check the bedding and if necessary we will replace - thank you for letting us know. Jinnyspinner is traditional log cabin overlooking the river. A stunning location and a wonderful place to relax and unwind. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and delighted you have booked to return next year.

Relaxing Lakes Lodge Break

My family and I would be more than happy to visit this park and book the same lodge again in the future. The park is idealy sited enabling trips and activities to be undertaken with ease and conveniance. As for the lodge, its set overlooking the river and fields with a large balcony, allowing the oportunity to enjoy the views over both. The lodge is spacious inside and well equiped, we had no issues at all with its cleanliness or the maintenance standards of the lodge and its contents.

A short review

Wow!! Welcomed to Jinnyspinner by the sounds of water...a beautiful balcony overlooking a river...perfect location!! Jinny spinner lodge itself was a beautiful and cosy hideaway. My 3 children and our dogs all had a fantastic time. Superb location. All staff on site were extremely friendly and welcoming. Locally, the Queens Head pub is a must!! The owners Sam and Mark welcome everyone like a long lost relative!! I can't say anything negative about Limefitt or Jinnyspinner....except we didn't want to come home!!!! Thankyou

Thank you for the review, Margaret. We take on board all you have said and we apologise that your stay was not to your satisfaction. This is certainly not something we like to hear. Given that the issues raised have clearly impacted on your stay we find it surprising that you did not contact us at the time. In doing so we would have rectified all these for you. As we were not made aware we can only say sorry and apologise for any inconvenience caused. We will assess the lodge for any maintenance issues and address accordingly. Furthermore, we will pass on your comments to the lodge owners for their reference. Whilst we are sorry to hear this lodge was not for you, Jinnyspinner is enjoyed by many and is hugely popular for those looking for a traditional log cabin with a riverside setting, the views are simply magnificent. A very cosy and peaceful holiday retreat.

A great,relaxing holiday.

We stayed in Limefitt Park last year and enjoyed it so much that we booked Jinnyspinner this year. The park is only a short ride to Windermere/Bowness and is very quiet, even in the evenings. The ferry across Windermere was not in service while we were here but you can still manage to cross the Lake by launch for a relaxing walk to Wray Castle (about 41/2 miles each way). In Bowness visit the Chocobar café for a great Panini and waffles while there are other shops to visit to fill your days. Oh, if the weather is good then you've struck gold.

Beautiful location, but the logde felt tired inside.

The lodge felt tired in decor and found clumps of hair in the bedsheets and on the floor. It really felt as if it needed a good, deep clean. The location and outside space...fantastic. My son scalded his arm on the hot pipework in the ensuite shower too.

Review date: 20th May 2018

Thank you for writing a review of your recent stay at Jinnyspinner. We are sorry you felt the lodge was tired inside. It is an older, traditional lodge with modern decor which complements the interior and adds to the cosy, cabin style and feel. This is something most guests like about staying there. It is most unusual to get comments about the standard of cleanliness and we will pass these on to the independent cleaner who prepares the lodge. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused. Similarly we haven't had any comments about the combined towel rail/radiator in the ensuite being very hot to touch and we are sorry your son touched this. We will add a small notice to make guests aware that it can get hot. Jinnyspinner is a popular, traditional lodge which enjoys a lovely location in a quiet part of Limefitt right by the water.
