Really enjoyed our stay At the puddleduck lodge over the Christmas period. The lodge was very clean and decorated to a high standard with Christmas decorations which we really appreciated having small children . The owners provided us with a bottle of prosseco on arrival which touched us . The beds were really comfy and the lodge was full with suitable essentials . The Christmas entertainment was lovely for the small children , the only down fall was the amount of dogs allowed in the bar area . We went for a meal one day in the restaurant but unfortunately we had to leave early due to dogs barking and being around us whilst we was eating. We approached the staff on at the time and she totally agreed with us. My two small children were running around and enjoying themselves but due to a really big dog barking in the bar it really upset my little girl . It is only going to take one dog bite for the park to be shut down. This is a matter I think should be addressed because due to the dogs in the bar we will not be returning to White Cross Bay . I understand dogs being allowed in lodges but I think in the bar they Should not be allowed .

Thank you for your review, Lyndsey. Whilst delighted you really enjoyed your stay at Puddleduck Lodge - and spending time with your family, we are sorry to hear you were not as pleased with the onsite bar. Although we have no control over how the bar is run we can pass on your feedback to the park management for their reference. Despite your bar experience we are pleased you found the lodge to be all you expected. This is a delightful three-bedroom holiday lodge with hot tub in the heart of the lakes. A super little place for all to enjoy.

Puddleduck lodge was a beautiful lodge, well equipped and very comfortable. Booking was easy and check-in was simple. The owners have worked hard to make this lodge a home from home, by adding a lot of creature comforts. However, some attention is required to sort the television signals, but this didn’t affect us as we were too busy enjoying the hot tub and beautiful surroundings. The customer service team for Lake District Lodge Holidays we’re extremely helpful and went above and beyond, especially when I left several items of clothes in the wardrobe. Having only realised my mistake 6hours after we departed, I contacted customer services (Fiona Wilson) and they were extremely quick to respond, locating my possessions and returning them to me promptly by post. I would recommend both booking through Lake District Lodge Holidays and puddleduck lodge to anyone who is considering a holiday to the Lake District. We are very much looking forward to returning next year. Thank you for such a wonderful stay!

Spend 10 days at puddleduck and accommodation was great and very quiet, location of lodge was great 5 minutes from reception and restaurant with gym and pool. We done a few things while there such as the boat trip and tree top and other various days out, we visited Asda in Kendal which is only 20 minutes drive and easy to find for shopping also a bit cheaper than shops surrounding the park.
