Great location for a short break

Stayed at Megala Lodge for 4 nights at the end of November. The park is in a great location on the shore of Lake Windermere and had decent amenities. The lodge is spacious and well equipped with everything we needed. It's in an elevated position with a view of the lake. The hot tub was a great place to relax with a drink and watch the sun go down. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it.

Weekend away with friends

Lovely lodge with everything you could need. Reception staff very friendly. We didn’t use any of the facilities as our lodge had its own hot tub which was lovely. Only comment I would make was it is difficult to remove/replace hot tub cover. Perhaps a handle could be added to make it easier. Although the park seemed very busy it certainly wasn’t noisy or crowded. Taxi into Bowness-on-Windermere was only £10 for a 6 seater which is excellent value. Would definitely recommend this park and this lodge

Lovely log cabin how ever the restaurant lets it down

Review date: 07th September 2019

Thank you for your review, Julie. Noting all you have said we can only apologise that your stay was let down by the onsite restaurant. Neither we nor the lodge owners are able to control how the Park or its facilities are conducted; that is the responsibility of the Park Owners although we will draw their attention to your comments. With so many other places to eat and drink close by, we do hope you found somewhere for you all to enjoy. On a better note, thank you for letting us know you would recommend the lodge to others. Megala is a great place to stay - modern and spacious with hot tub and fabulous views!.. We'd be delighted to welcome you again.

Fab stay

Lovely lodge in a great position between Windermere and Ambleside. Lodge is very comfortable, never slept so well In a bed away from home before, nice that’s it’s a king size too. Shower in en-suite is also very good but not that big. Only thing to watch for are the steps. My 2 year old worked out how to open the gate in the first 5 seconds so if you’re worried about this take a small padlock. The elevated position of the lodge does make for a superior view though

Amazing Modern Lodge

Although there was only me and my partner stopping here this lodge accommodates 6. It is spacious , modern and has an amazing view out of the hot tub. If you like small walks then it is perfectly located for Bowness-on-Windermere and anything around there. To sum it up Absolutely perfect!

Easter Holiday

We (three couples) had a brilliant stay at Megala Lodge mon-fri during our Easter Holiday. The lodge was clean and comfortable with everything we needed for our stay in the Lakes. The hot tub is an added bonus particularly after being out on a long walk all day! We had amazing weather so we were able to enjoy the seating on the decking area outside. Already looking forward to our holiday next year!
