A wonderful stay!

First of all the park itself is beautiful. Staff are efficient, welcoming and friendly. Mountain Lodge is in a lovely spot - in an elevated position so you can see mountains and lake from the deck. The park and lodge location is level (good for mobility issues) although lodge is accessed by short flight of external steps. Lake is a short stroll away. Lodge is beautifully furnished and equipped. Believe the photos!! Extremely clean - so well done cleaning staff. Deck area has lovely furniture. a lovely quiet spot. Near woodland path - so great for doggies! We loved staying there and would go back in a heartbeat.

Short weekend break

We have just got back from a weekend break at the lodge. The lodge has great views looking out over the lake. The lodge is in a great location and gets the sun from morning till night so if your lucky enough to get the weather whilst there, like we just did its perfect. Its very modern and in great condition and comes well equipped with everything you need. We visited with our 2 dogs, with one been a 65kg newfoundland and it was ideal with no issues what so ever, there are tonnes of great walks to go on with your dogs all close by. I would definitely stay again.

Lovely cabin, great park.

The cabin was lovely, very comfortable, decorated to a high spec and quite spacious as it slept 6 of us no problem. It was clean and everything you need is to hand. The views are to die for and sitting on the deck with a drink watching the sun go down was pure bliss. The kids loved the park, plenty to do, swimming facilities were good and it was nice to be able to let the kids play outside. The only thing that disappointing was the time waiting in a queue at the bar for a drink. But I understand this is nothing to do with the renting of the lodges.

Thank you for your review, Alison and it is pleasing to hear you enjoyed your stay. This is a lovely place to relax and unwind with the family. A super location for an unforgettable holiday in the Lakes - and Brockhole is an excellent day out. Add to that the lodge is beautifully presented and with lake views. Where better to be? We do hope you will return for another stay soon.

Christmas family break

On arrival we found the lodge had been decorated for xmas and lots of xmas extras (eg napkins,crockery,etc) which was lovely. The lodge was warm and cosy with beautiful views. Plenty to do over Christmas with craft functions on as well as festive activities, swimming pool, bar and restaurant open as well as lovely walks and visits to Bowness.

A beautiful lodge with a beautiful lake view

Had a lovely weekend staying in this lodge. It was very modern, clean, and well equipped with everything we needed. Great combined living space and good soundproofing between this and the bedrooms. The lake view was a surprise. It was a wet weekend so we were unable to use the patio set on the terrace but will be back to appreciate the external views on a warmer weekend. All in all a very lovely stay. Just wish we could have stayed longer.

Weekend Break with friends

We stayed as two couples with children in this lodge and it suited us perfectly. We were visiting Brockhole during our stay so the location of site and lodge was perfect. The lodge has a lovely view of the lake and the fell in the background from front deck and window. We found the whole process very easy checking in and finding the lodge and arrived to find it perfectly clean and cozy. We would definitely stay here again

Three generations exploring the Lakes

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mountain view. The location of the park and the lodge within the park are exceptional. The view of the hills and the lake from the lodge was lovely. Our first evening was dry and sunny and we enjoyed gin and tonics on the deck. The children enjoyed the pool and we all enjoyed some nice walks around Rydal and Tarn Howes.

Family holiday

The lodge was clean lovely location as you can look out of front Windows and see the lake which is only a couple of minutes walk. The entertainment is only 5mins walk from lodge. There's lovely walks around the area and Windermere is only a couple of miles away
