The perfect choice

Everything was very thoughtful, regarding our stay, the lodge was very clean and organized, with no hassle regarding getting the key or leaving the key of the lodge. Definitely going to use the Lake District Lodge Holiday services again.

100 per cent

This is one of the best breaks I have ever had, cannot complain about a thing, lodge was amazing, site was so beautiful, I can't say enough about it, I will be heading there as often as I can, especially swallowdale lodge, if available. If you want a relaxing break, that is the place to go, during term time, but very family friendly, so fantastic place all round, staff are so helpful, cannot compliment the whole experience enough.

A home from home in the lakes

This is a fantastic lodge right on the edge of lake Windermere. Stayed for 5 nights in September 2018. The lodge is very well equipped, comfy, homely and in lovely condition. The free use of the local gym with pool, sauna and steam room is a nice touch. Would recommend highly for a stay in the Lakes.

May bank holiday weekend at Swallowdale lodge

This is a cosy and comfortable lodge in a great position on the park. Both the lake and the facilities are easily accessible and only a short walk away. The cul-de-sac the lodge is located on, is nice and quiet which was great for our two kids who could play on their bikes etc. The lodge is light and airy, especially the master bedroom and living room. The lodge is very well equipped, especially the kitchen. The front aspect is lovely when the sun is shining. A great little sun trap.
