October 2019

The lodge was in a convenient location. Overall the condition was good, but a few minor repairs wouldn’t go amiss. The only part we didn’t enjoy was the bed in the master bedroom. The mattress was extremely hard and uncomfortable. After looking at it I would imagine it’s probably as old as the lodge. When you’re paying over £600 for 4 nights you expect to have a good standard of mattress in the bedrooms. The hot tub was excellent and well maintained. Overall we enjoyed our stay here but probably wouldn’t book this lodge again.

Review date: 10th November 2019

Thank you for your review, Michael and raising a few things with us. We will follow up on all you have said and address any issues accordingly. Thank you. Noting the mattress was not to your liking, we are sorry. We do find that comfort is a personal preference although again, we shall check for any signs of damage and advise the lodge owners of your comments - who are themselves frequent visitors to the lodge. Thank you for letting us know of your lodge experience and we are pleased that overall you enjoyed your stay.

Great lodge, fantastic location - our 2nd visit

Great lodge, owners have thought of everything. The hot tub, which is very private in comparison to other lodges, is a great way to end the day after walking in the lakes. The beds are very comfortable and a king size which is so rare in lodges. Location is perfect, short drive to Windermere, Bowness, Ambleside and Grasmere Love it, this was our second visit and will definitely be back !

My husband and I received a one night five star hotel voucher for christmas, as we had to travel nearly two hundred miles we decided to extend our break and booking this lodge turned out to be an excellent decision. The lodge had everything and more very comfortable and spotless and having superb weather made it a perfect holiday.
