Perfect apart from a few blips

A perfect stay apart from a few blips, a bad smell from the drains under the lodge, tap in the kitchen requires attention and also the gass fire the ignition did not work had to light it with a piece of paper otherwise it was a great stay. Décor was a bit outdated but it was spotless and there were loads of dvd's and cd's also books and games for children. The young gentleman from Lake District Lodge Holidays can out as soon as I reported the problems and sorted out what he could and informed us that the owners would be advised of the problems. The lodge was very comfortable throughout plenty of space and close to the reception, shop, bar and restaurant a couple of minutes up a small incline. The Park was extremely well kept and attractive to look at.

Great place to stay in the Lakes

The lodge was beautiful, spotlessly clean and very cosy. The lodge is on a beautiful site and close to the restaurant and leisure centre. The restaurant had a bar and entertainment and did take out food you could take back to the lodge if needed. The Leisure centre has a good size pool, steam, sauna and jacuzzi. The site was lovely, clean, quite and close to the lake. The only feedback I would give about the site is that it would be nice if the they made more actives around the water front area? More benches? Picnic area? BBQ area? Cafe? As it’s so beautiful but there isn’t really anything to do there. I would 100% recommend both the site and lodge. It has something for everyone both a quiet relaxing break or family fun.

Relaxing Week.

Pinehaven Lodge is in a lovely quiet position on the site and is in the sun for most of the day. The lodge itself is a little dated, but subsequently priced accordingly. It is clean, well equipped and it suited our requirements for the 2 of us and our small dog. The only slight criticism was there wasn't an electric kettle, we thought it a little strange to use a stove kettle, which took a while to boil. The double bed was very comfortable, but we didn't have any need to use any of the other beds, so unable to comment. One thing to note is that the water sometimes became unbearably hot from the shower (to the point of scolding) and the thermostat didn't appear to make any difference. We would however recommend the lodge to anybody looking for a home from home environment it a lovely setting.

Fab lodge was like home from home, very clean and had everything you would need. We had a family weekend away and the lodge and site was perfect for what you need it for. Games & dvds for rainy days or just for a night in, warm enough lodge with plenty heaters & fire. All cooking utensils you could think of for making meals. Excellent location , 2 mins walk from reception and the club. We are looking to book again fo another weekend away . There’s a couple of parks on site, swimming pool and club.

Short break, good location

Had a lovely short break for my birthday. Lodge was clean and tidy, i'd say its probably better for 4 adults and 2 children as the smallest bedroom had 2 single beds very close together and a not alot of room to walk round and get ready. No dressing table in this room it wouldn't fit. The other 2 bedrooms were lovely 1 had a double bed, dressing table with mirror and wardrobes with plenty of space. The other was 2 singles but with plenty of space. Bathroom was clean and the shower was powerful. Everything you'd need in the kitchen and the living space was nice but would just point out the cushions on the settee could do with a little wash as they really did smell of dogs. If people read the requests dogs shouldn't have been allowed on the furniture so this something that could easily be rectified. All in all we had a lovely time and would i go again.. yes. Only real downside was a wasps nest on our balcony in front of the front door, we did report it twice and was promised it would be removed both times although it was still there when we left and my husband has a phobia of wasps which he did point out. Close proximity to Windermere, Ambleside & Bowness with some lovely pubs along the way. Club house on site did let dogs in but they only have 5 tables which meant it was a struggle for some people when it rained. Maybe an outdoor area with a cover would be good for dog owners although this doesn't reflect on the property.

Thank you for your review of Pinehaven. This is a great place to stay in the lakes. It offers basic yet comfortable accommodation in a super location. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay - and birthday - although noting your further comments we were sorry to hear you had a couple of issues along the way. We have taken these up with the housekeepers and with regard to the wasp nest, the Park. We can only apologise as the park did not inform us, had they done so it would have been successfully dealt with on the same day. It has now been removed. Despite the issues we are delighted to hear you had a lovely time at Pinehaven and would return for another stay. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.

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.
