Welcome to Wansfell Retreat, a beautifully presented three bedroom holiday lodge with uninterrupted views

A nice relaxing break.

Still a lovely lodge, but requires better quality bedding and some general repairs needed. Overall still a very relaxing break with excellent views from the lodge. Would recommend highly. Ideal for people bringing their pet, with the fully enclosed balcony.

Relaxing stay

The lodge was in a great location, with amazing views and we felt relaxed as soon as we walked through the door. Wansfell is decorated to a high standard and there is everything you could possibly need for a relaxing stay. We booked for a relative's 60th birthday for the weekend and we regretted we hadn't booked for longer.

4 day break at wansfell retreat

We thoroughly enjoyed our break in this lodge and this area of the lakes. There are good walks from the site and it's not too far to drive further on for ambleside or grasmere. The lodge was warm,clean and comfortable. The porch area was very useful for removing wet coats and footwear, however there were no hooks for hanging coats. We had to use the dining room chairs for drying. As we were on a 4 day break we didn't need to much wardrobe space which was convenient as one wardrobe was packed full of outside cushions! Well equipped kitchen but lacking a pyrex jug and covered casserole dishes. These are very small but useful points worth a comment. Would definitely book again.

Review date: 02nd December 2018

Thank you for leaving a review, Pauline and it is pleasing to hear you enjoyed your stay. Wansfell Retreat is beautifully presented for guests to simply relax and unwind, and very welcoming after days out walking. Add in the glorious views for an unforgettable holiday in the Lakes. We are sorry to hear a couple of items were missing from the lodge - the lodge is now, once again, fully equipped. Thank you for letting us know and we apologise for any inconvenience caused. Your further comments have been passed on to the lodge owners for their reference, thank you for these. We look forward to welcoming you again to Wansfell Retreat (complete with your loyalty discount!).

Home from Home

This lodge was wonderful and had everything you might need. I also chose it because it's dog friendly. The owner obviously takes pride in his Lodge as all the finishes seemed of a high standard. Little details, like the wire on the decking steps so that you don't slip were great. Beautiful views and warm and cosy on the colder days. Kitchen facilities were great...we wanted for nothing! It was a wonderfully relaxing break with plenty to see and do close by. We will definitely be returning.

Lodge accommodation was very good, clean and comfortable.The lodge was presented nicely and we enjoyed our stay. Would recommend the following improvements :- More coat hangers, hooks for coats by the entrance, hooks for dressing gowns in the bedrooms and shower tidies to hold shower gel,sponges etc.

Fairly nice lodge

Bedding a tad smelly and worn out. The drain smell was really bad at times. Lighting simply wasn’t suitable outside near the steps at night for safe navigation. The car park area where the tarmac, turf and wood meet was rotten and incredibly slippy, my wife fell badly and injured her knee and tore her trousers because of a serious slip on the wood. No storage room for groceries in the kitchen. No towel rails in the bathrooms. Other than that everything else was suitable.

Review date: 13th October 2018

Thank you for the review, Paul. We note all you have said and we are sorry to hear that your stay at Wansfell Retreat was not quite as expected. It is disappointing that you did not mention any of these things when contacting us to report a minor maintenance issue during your stay. Had you done so we may have been able to resolve matters to your satisfaction. In response to your comments, we are very sorry for any inconvenience caused and we will certainly pass on your suggestions for improvement to the lodge owners for their consideration. We will also pass on your concerns regarding Park services (drains, outside lighting and parking areas) to the Park management for their reference. As booking agents to privately owned lodges this is something outside of our control. Having said that with regard to outside lighting, the Park are only permitted to use low level lighting. We are pleased that you would recommend Wansfell Retreat to others, thank you - and we assume you enjoyed your stay. The views are simply spectacular and the lodge, beautifully presented. A great place to relax and unwind .
