Lovely weekend break

Lovely cabin, plenty of room, good facilities, only 2 bad points i can think of, gas fire ignition didnt work, but managed to use lighter. Garden furniture was a bit dirty too, could have done with a clean so we could use it. Other than that everything was great.

A dog friendly lodge in a great site

We really enjoyed our stay, the lodge was comfortable and we'll equipped. Decor is a bit tired but I suspect that's why they allow dogs. Sure was idea for small children with kids entertainment in the bar and two play areas. Only issue was the missing remote (on order apparently for some time). Not sure why it would take weeks to buy one. The parking might fit two small cars, just, but if the next door lodge have a car on site you can't get more than one in and out.

Our stay in Pinehaven Lodge

Stayed in Pinehaven Lodge end June 2018 with my husband and our 19 yr old son along with my 87 yr old mother. Clean, quite spacious lodge in good location for park facilities. Son was in smaller of the two twin rooms to allow his grandmother to have the largest , he did manage ok but feel two older children/teenagers may struggle in this room due to reduced space particularly between the small beds. Clean tidy, enclosed veranda area with tables which we did make use of in the lovely weather. One small negative, there was no remote for the television and the reception was not good at times, there was a note stating remote would arrive " imminently " but was not dated and no remote arrived during our stay. However this did not retract from a lovely comfortable stay and would recommend Pinehaven Lodge particularly for a family with smaller children.

Review date: 09th July 2018

Thank you for reviewing your stay, Susan and it is pleasing to read your comments. Pinehaven is a comfortable three-bedroom holiday lodge on White Cross Bay, and this particular lodge is very popular for those looking for good value accommodation in a great location. The lodge will accommodate up to six guests and although the twin rooms are fitted with narrow single beds both are equipped with wardrobes and bedside tables for a comfortable stay. We do advise that guests visit our website for a full lodge description before placing a booking as all the lodges are privately owned and vary in taste and design. Whilst we are aware that the tv remote was missing it can be operated manually. The lodge owners have ordered a replacement and we apologise it did not arrive in time for your stay. Pinehaven is a cosy and well equipped lodge and is enjoyed by all that stay here and we will be delighted should you choose to return in the future.

Lovely cabin. Site quiet and calm. Reception staff friendly and helpful. Easy to dispose rubbish.

Lovely cabin. Extremely clean. Only fault was on arrival struggled to open key safe over 30 minute wait. Would go again. This time a lodge with hot tub would be nice.

Review date: 02nd July 2018

Thank you for leaving a review, Mark and whilst sorry to hear you had a little trouble with the key box we were pleased this was quickly resolved and you went on to enjoy your stay. Pinehaven is a comfortable three bedroom holiday lodge and a super location as a base to explore the Lakes. Magnificent scenery, walks and many pretty villages all within easy reach of the lodge, and Brockhole is excellent! We look forward to you returning for another stay in the near future.
