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

Thank you for your nice review Peter, it is wonderful to hear you enjoyed your stay. Owls Nook is a very comfortable 3 bedroom lodge with the added bonus of a hot tub to relax in after an enjoyable day out exploring the local area, as you have mentioned, it is perfect and we hope to welcome you back in the future.

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.

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.

Can’t wait to return!

Owls nook lodge was the perfect weekend away! The lodge itself was lovely, spacious and very clean. The owners had kindly provided a lot of utensils for us to use also. The lodge location was only a 10 minute walk from the lake and only a 2 minute walk to the reception area. We visited in the winter however there was outside seating which we cannot wait to use in the summer. We will definitely be returning and staying in owls nook lodge. Thank you for reading!

Half term break

Well.looked after lodge and comfortable everything was supplied. Slight issue with cleaning on arrival but solved immediately and resolved efficiently. My opinion it's only really for 4 ppl even tho it's 3 bedroomed it's a tight squeeze when all in lounge and to all sit round dining table you have to pull it out from wall and make sure everyone sat down as impossible to move round. Overall we had a lovely time staying in playing games as we had 2 children with us. Did try the boathouse pub on site 1 night but very small for size of site (would be tight squeeze in there in summer).

Great long weekend.

We were pleasantly surprised with the general condition of the lodge. Never having been to the site before we were made to feel welcome by the site staff. The whole booking procedure and following details were very comprehensive and straight forward. The only problem we encountered was- how to operate the electric hob(having been gas hob users). Eventually, with the help of the site maintenance staff, we managed to get it working. The only other minor inconvenience was the freezer door, which had been damaged prior to our arrival. The hot tub was a delight and was immaculately clean and well maintained .Over-all we had a a relaxing weekend break and look forward to re-booking Owl's Nook Lodge in the not too distant future. We will also recommend it to our friends.

Perfect for a short stay

The lodge is compact but comfortable and set up with pretty much everything needed. I'd be hesitant to say it slept 6 adults as we were a party of 5 and that was pretty much at maximum as far as space and comfort is concerned. Clean rooms with plenty of towels and a nicely done shower room. The hot tub was amazing!! Piping hot on arrival and just the cherry on the cake! The led lights weren't working on the hot tub which was a shame as it would have been nice at night. We enjoyed breakfast on the decking each morning which was lovely!
