Perfect location right near to the lake. Easy to locate from the reception. Everything in working order including the hot tub. Comfortable and pleasant! Perfect for our first trip to Lake District. Can't wait to come back!

Stayed for 4 days during the half term. The Lodge is on a corner plot just a few yards from the lake, it was clean and checking in was simple. Kitchen is well equipped and the overall comfort is good. If I have to choose a negative, it has to be the Wi-fi, it is terrible, and during a four day break with endless rain it was needed. But it was probably needed by everyone on the site which may have contributed. We would definitely stay in Puddleduck Lodge again.

Thank you for leaving a review, Mick. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at Puddleduck Lodge. This is a warm and welcoming place to stay, and beautifully presented for a relaxing break in the Lakes. Although we note the wi-fi was poor and we are sorry for the inconvenience caused, as detailed on our website the complimentary park wi-fi is not 100% reliable. If wi-fi is a necessity we would advise choosing a lodge with it's own dedicated wi-fi. For further information please visit our website or give our team a call. That aside we are delighted you enjoyed your time with the family and would return for another stay. We look forward to welcoming you in the near future.

Stayed here in August 2020. Lovely lodge. Great location. At first view we thought the hot tub was not very private but once we were in it was fine. There were a couple of issues but the staff at Lake District Lodge Holidays sorted things out very quickly. Would recommend. Had a much needed break.
