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

Wansfell Retreat is a beautiful, high specification lodge at Limefitt Park. The lodge is located in the Wansfell area and enjoys impressive uninterrupted views across the valley to the fells. There is a spacious deck from which to relax and unwind after a day exploring the local villages and attractions. Wansfell Retreat will comfortably sleep 6 guests plus an infant in a travel cot. We think it’s probably one of the best locations at Limefitt. The perfect place to enjoy a welcome break from everyday life.

The lodge welcomes 2 small dogs.

Stayed for 4 nights late Sept. Booking was extremely easy and hassle free. Lodge location is excellent with great views from the decking area and pretty central within the park. Condition and cleanliness cannot be faulted and if returning to Limefitt would have no hesitation on booking this lodge again. Only downside was the on site pub the Haybarn was shut for the majority of our stay for maintenance issues, which has no bearing on the lodge itself. We would certainly return here again as it is an outstanding location.

Thank you for your review and ratings Kevin, it is wonderful to hear you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry to hear the Haybarn Pub was closed for the duration of your stay, unfortunately this is something which is outside of our control as the onsite facilities are run and owned by Parkdean Resorts. However, thank you for bringing this to our attention and we hope it did not impact on your stay too much. Wansfell Retreat is a delightful three-bedroom lodge, spacious and beautifully decorated throughout, the owners take great pride in making this lodge a real home away from home! We are thrilled to hear you would like to return, we look forward to welcoming you back.

Nice clean cabin on arrival. Lovely furnishings, In our view,the best views on site. Lovely sized rooms and showers. Plenty of storage. Room for two cars. Would definitely recommend Wansfell Retreat. The pony trekking people attached to the site are brilliant. The only downside for us was the onsite pub/restaurant, could have been better, in that the food and drink was just ok, wouldn’t have gone there again.

We have stayed at several lodges at limefitt before. They are all nice. But this one is outstanding. The furnishings are very good quality, comfortable beds, it was extremely clean when we arrived, And Very well equipped, The outside decking had a secure gate on it so our small dog could run around safely. The outdoor furniture was Top quality and comfortable and the view is amazing. We can’t rate this lodge highly enough. No complaints whatsoever - apart from the WiFi. WiFi is advertised as available at limefitt, but in the week we were there, none of our party were able to get onto the internet, not once. This was very dissapointing, However WiFi is not the lodge owners responsibility, so we do not blame them in any way. Overall this was an outstanding lodge with outstanding views. .

Thank you for your excellent review Anthony, we are so pleased to hear you thoroughly enjoyed your stay at this stunning lodge. We are sorry to hear you had trouble with the free WiFi which is provided by the park, although this is something outside of our control, we will certainly pass this to the park management for their information. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused. Wansfell Retreat is a beautifully presented three-bedroom lodge, decorated to a very high specification and with the most amazing views, this lodge is certainly one to visit! We hope to welcome you back in the future.
