Fabulous location on park

2nd time at Rowan Lodge. The lodge is in one of the best locations on Limefitt Park next to the woods and hills and not overlooked. You can walk directly from the lodge to the Mortal Man and also to Ambleside over Wansfell without needing a car. We like the fact that Rowan Lodge has a bath after such long walks. It is a very dog friendly lodge and site with an enclosed dog exercise area. The decking area is also fenced off with a gate.

Our stay at Rowan Lodge

We really enjoyed our stay at this lodge. It was comfortable and clean and had everything you needed. Loved seeing the badgers visit us every night for their food and we were also lucky to have deer visit us on a couple of occasions. The on site pub is ok and food was nice too. Overall a lovely stay

Fantastic Break

This was our first experience of hiring a lodge, the website was simple to use and provided lots of information. From the moment we arrived at the lodge it felt like home. Peaceful, quiet and well located both in the park and for exploring the surrounding area. We enjoyed the board games left at the lodge when the weather let us down. We saw deer, and the badger arrived every night for his peanut butter sandwiches. The only complaint we have is that we are due to visit the lakes again in September and Rowan is not available, but we intend to book the Rowan again as soon as possible.

Beyond the Hedge

Lodge was clean and very comfortable. Everything we could possibly need was provided. Fantastic location for nature lovers with badgers, deer, rabbits and squirrel appearing from beyond the hedge. Site has own pub with beer garden and food available. There is also a shop at reception. Dogs welcome with their own exercise field. Wonderfully tranquil long weekend.

Oh shihtzu annual convention

We had a fantastic stay at rowan lodge so much so we rebooked for next year before we got home. The lodge was very cosy and welcoming and the badgers are the added bonus along with the bunny’s and the deer. The haybarn does lovely food and is fur friendly.....can’t wait to return next June.

Fabulous location on park

Rowan Lodge is in a fabulous spot on Limefitt Park. It is very private and not overlooked next to woods and fells. Our cockapoo absolutely loved the walks straight out of the door. The lodge has everything that you need and an added bonus of a bath after a long walk over Wansfell Pike to Ambleside and back again. There was constant hot water and a fully equipped kitchen. The only negative was that the outside of the lodge needed some TLC of the decking and furniture but it would not deter us from returning again soon.

Review date: 26th May 2019

Thank you for your very kind review Peter, we are so pleased to hear you and your Cockapoo thoroughly enjoyed your stay. Rowan is a traditional lodge perfectly placed for a very peaceful and relaxing getaway. Thank you for your comments regarding the decking, we have passed these to the lodge owners for their consideration and please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused. We would be delighted to welcome you back in the future.

Rowan Lodge

Rowan Lodge is perfect. We loved our stay there, the lodge had everything that we needed and was spotless. on our last day the toilet cistern wouldn't fill and I called Lake District Lodges who came within the hour to repair. couldn't fault the lodge or Lake District Lodge. we would definitely use both again.

Christmas break

We have stayed at this lodge quite a few times usually in the summer months but this was a break with 14 other family members all in different lodges for the festive break. We love the location of the lodge and the homlyness of it. We thought it might be a cold in lodge given the time of year but we were proven wrong it was so warm. We dined at the Haybarn a few nights and have no complaints there, the staff were very helpful and friendly. Will definitely be booking again.

Review date: 04th January 2019

Thank you for your review, Linda. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed staying at Rowan Lodge over the festive period. This charming two-bedroom traditional lodge on Limefitt Park is in a beautiful location - and a wonderful place for a family gathering. Quite a gathering! It will be a pleasure to welcome you again in the near future.
