Family holiday

Our stay at Ridgway lodge was for a big family of 6, there was plenty of room for us all. Although the weather wasn’t great it was a perfect location between Ambleside & Windermere for cycling. The entertainment on the park was perfect for the younger 2 kept them entertained most of the night. The food in the restaurant is highly recommended.

Would highly recommend

We stayed here for a long weekend and had a fab time. The kids loved the added bonus of the hot tub! The lodge was very modern, clean and well equipped with everything you could possibly need, just like a home from home. If I had to pick out a negative then the lodges are quite close together but this wouldn't put us off staying again, so much so we are looking at going next year. Thanks Lake District Lodge Holidays!

Great Lodge in a quiet location

Visited this lodge in June 19 with a group of friends. The lodge is well presented, modern and clean. The living area has 2 large sofas and a small chair which is comfortable. The kitchen area is particularly large for a lodge, with a good sized fridge freezer for all your supplies. The bedrooms are very nicely decorated with plenty of storage space. The single bed mattresses felt a little saggy, however this didn't prevent a good nights sleep. Both bathrooms very nice, however the bath towels were on the small side. The hot tub was lovely and hot, and is a great asset. We didn't think it was as big as previous hot tubs we had been in, however it seated 3 comfortably. We didn't get to try out the outside seating area due to the weather, however it looked decent. lodge is located in a quiet area of the park, a short walk away from the Club House, where there is a variety of entertainment and a restaurant. The entertainment is ok if you're having a few drinks, however whilst dining on the Sunday night, at approximately 7pm the entertainment started blasting out of the speakers just behind us which made a normal conversation impossible. Overall, a good stay at Ridgway lodge.

Thank you for your great review Amanda, we are delighted to hear you all had a lovely stay. We have taken on board your comments regarding the mattresses, we do find comfort to be a personal preference but we have passed your comments to the lodge owners for their consideration. We are sorry the entertainment was too loud for you, the entertainment is provided by the park and although this is something outside of our control please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused. Ridgway is a very popular three-bedroom lodge fully equipped with everything you need to fully enjoy your stay. Decorated to a high standard and with a hot tub to relax in at the end of the day, we can see why it is a favourite. We hope to welcome you back for another stay soon.

Short Break

We really enjoyed our stay at ridgeway lodge! Well equipped, spacious and modern. The highlight was having the use of the hot tub. The only downside for us was that there was no real privacy around the hot tub, maybe some low level screening would help with this ... at least when you’re in the hot tub. Otherwise ... everything else was perfect.

Review date: 01st April 2019

Thank you for your comments Jackie, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your short break at Ridgway Lodge. This is a beautifully presented modern lodge in a quiet area of the park, perfect for unwinding and relaxing after a busy day either exploring the area or hiking up a fell, indeed the hot tub is the perfect place to relax. We note your suggestion for a low lever screen around the hot tub and we will pass this onto the lodge owners for their consideration, we apologise for any inconvenience caused. It would be a pleasure to welcome you back in the future.
