A fab holiday

Had a lovely break with my family and dog, we all enjoyed the lodge very much it was so comfy and we all especially enjoyed the hot tub. The lodge itself was spotless with everything we needed for our stay and it is set in a great park, the kids found plenty to keep themselves occupied as did the adults. The surrounding towns and villages were beautiful plenty of lovely walks and nice place for eating out in pubs and hotels with nice people. Looking forward to booking for next year.

Nice little place

We stayed for 4 nights at owls nook it's a lovely little lodge but I think it could do with abit of a refurbishment as you can tell in some areas that it is one of the older lodges. I also noticed that I dont think our toilet had been cleaned which was abit of a disappoinment and felt abit uncomfortable. The other was we had abit of trouble with the door to the lodge, it's not very secure even when locked. The beds are abit hard too so you dont get a very good night's sleep. We would defo book again but maybe not for this lodge. Everything was only minor bad points the main thing was the toilet not being clean but apart from that the location is perfect and we had a really nice time, I would defo be returning and defo recommend to others.

Easter break

We had a week stay in owls nook lodge with children & grandparents, it was clean & the facilities were great in the lodge, the shower room had been refurbished since our last stay & was a great improvement, the lodge would be a bit cosy for 7 people but is plenty big enough for 4-5 people, the hot tub was especially pleasant after a full day

Fantastic location and great accommodation

Really would recommend staying at the Owls Nook, the accommodation was really good and the hot tub was fantastic. The site was a perfect location right on Lake Windermere, very close to all the amenities nearby. The site is spotless and has excellent facilities for families with their dogs.

Brilliant lodge to explore the lakes from.

This is the second time we’ve stayed at owls book. The location is brilliant with a clean well presented lodge and added benefit of a hot tub to relax after a long day on the hills. Great to have such a nice place that is dog friendly. A few niggles, since our first stay the fridge freezer has obviously broken and been replaced with a much smaller one with only a tiny freezer box. The bed mattresses are also very hard but they are clean and good enough to be able to get a good nights sleep. Overall it’s a great place to stay and somewhere we will definitely be back to.

Review date: 20th December 2018

Thank you for your review, David and letting us know you had another enjoyable stay at Owls Nook. This three-bedroom lodge with hot tub located on White Cross Bay is ideal as a base from which to explore the Lakes. With many towns, villages and walks close by and the hugely popular, Brockhole – the Lake District Visitor Centre and attraction, almost neighbouring the park. We have passed on your comments about the size of the fridge freezer and the comfort of the mattresses to the lodge owners for their consideration, and we are sorry for any inconvenience caused. Having said that we are pleased these did not impact on your stay and we are delighted that you will be returning in the future.
