Just what the doctor ordered

From the moment we pulled onto Limefitt Park we were treated fantastically. Pulling up to the lodge I was like an excited child! As we entered it was lovely and warm and bright. The first thing we saw was a bottle of Prosecco and box of fudge on the table. I briefly mentioned when we booked that it was our anniversary so for them to remember was a beautifully thoughtful touch. Larchmere Lodge was clean and had everything you needed to enjoy your stay. Sitting out on the verandah at the end of September was an added bonus as we could enjoy the view of the changing colours on the trees. Would we stay there again? Most definitely. Thank you so much

Larchmere lodge

1 mark down for cleanliness because of the greasy marks on the bathroom radiator, otherwise the lodge is really clean. The open plan living room and dining room is convenient. The kitchen is fully equipped. The bedrooms are of good sizes. We would consider staying again at this lodge when we go back to Lake District.

Perfect break

On arrival the site has a very helpful reception with a small shop. We arrived on a cool day and the lodge had lamps and heating on waiting for us which was lovely. The lodge itself appears to have had a new kitchen with everything you need. We felt at home straight away. It had kids games, toiletries and kitchen essentials. We used the free pass to the local leisure centre and the pool was fab. Our daughter loved it. I would definately recommend the lodge and lake district lodge holidays.

October weekend

Lodge was really good but the pub on site had to wait over one and a half hours for our food with still no sign of it arriving so we walked away with empty stomach, and had to stay cooking gone 10 o'clock at night.

Review date: 22nd October 2017

Thank you for your review Alan. We were sorry to hear of the poor service you received in the pub on site. We will pass your comments on to the park management as this is something which is outside of our control and we hope you did the same whilst you were here. It's a pity that your review is only about the poor experience in the pub because Larchmere is a very popular, comfortable and spacious lodge offering great value for money. It is an ideal place to stay when visiting the area.

Nice clean lodge, lovely location and good facilities - shame about the wifi

The lodge was very clean and had everything we needed. The kids were happy with the PS2 in their room and the zip wire in the site playground which had amazing views of the surrounding hills and valleys and stood next to a river which was shallow enough to paddle in. They were also very excited about the ponies trekking through the site several times a day and were able to see the horses grazing in the field next to the site. The on-site pub was large and did good food and we went to the nearby (ten nimute drive) indoor swimming pool (included in the price) several times during our stay, which also had a jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. The site was a short drive from both Ambleside and Windermere with decent shops and restaurants and a cinema. The only downside to the lodge was the lack of Internet access. I couldn't get any 4g access on my phone which i expected, but wifi access was not good, especially in the evenings when we were trying to research where best to go the following day. There were various open access connections but they never seemed to last and we had to keep finding others that were free which was frustrating and time consuming. It would have been better to have just one password protected wifi access for the lodge that was either off or on to save the faffing around. That, however, was our only quibble with a holiday home that in every other way was great.

Thank you for reviewing your stay at Larchmere Lodge, Sara and we were pleased to hear you had an enjoyable stay. Regrettably the wifi (provided free by the park) can be somewhat unreliable due to the location. We hope this didn't spoil things too much. Larchmere is a lovely, spacious lodge offering great value accommodation whilst being close to all the local attractions. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Larchfield Lodge

The location is too far out. Need a car if you want to eat out or go for drink. The pub on the site although very nice and the staff very friendly it was very quiet and quite boring. They do a good breakfast though. The inside of the cabin was quite nice but the exterior needs some maintenance

Review date: 26th July 2017

Thank you for your review. Larchmere Lodge is situated at Limefitt Park which is a beautiful, peaceful location but still convenient for the main tourist centres of Windermere & Ambleside just a few minutes away. It would appear the location wasn't really for you. We are surprised you found the pub on site boring and quiet. Perhaps you should have made the short walk to the nearby Mortal Man and (the recently reopened) Queens Head which are 2 lovely nearby Lakeland Pubs with great food and drink. We have noted your comments about the outside of the lodge which is due to be addressed after the busy summer season. Larchmere Lodge is a very comfortable lodge which offers great value for money and Limefitt is a location to be enjoyed by those wanting a relaxing break in this beautiful part of the Lake District.
