Lovely break and great hot tub

Location of park was great to explore other areas. The lodge was light and airy. We were lucky to use the hot tub as the weather was ok. Comfy lodge with nice big tv. We enjoyed our stay.

Excellent holiday lodge!

Clean, well equipped and in a good place in the park and a good location overall. Near to Bowness/Windermere and Ambleside. Really well laid out with two bathrooms, and good sized living space. Hot tub was well heated and in a good position. Kitchen was equipped with everything you could need. Lodge is located in an excellent place within the park - although there are lodges next to it, it is elevated which gives a good feeling of space, and a great view - especially from the hot tub. Really comfortable, light and airy, with plenty of windows, and plenty of outside living space. Good parking spaces for two cars. All in all, a really good deal.

Very fair

Our stay was very good,when the loge was cleaned ,but I will say there sort of clean and my clean are miles apart . On saying this we were were given a £25.00 because the lodge was not ready when we arrived at The staff were lovely,and I would come back and stay again.a small must is to put a bolt lock or something as we had small children with us and they could open the gate.

Lovely week away

The lodge was lovely amd spacious. Extra touches of childrens games and toiletries were very welcome. Location on site was great. Hot tub was well used and when we required assistance from Lake District lodges it was excellent and very speedy. Only recommendation for the future would be to treat the decking as it looks tired compared to the neighbouring properties.
