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.

4 Night Stay

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.

Review date: 09th October 2019

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.

Well worth a stay.

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. .

Another great stay at Limefitt

Stayed with our 10 year old son, great lodge, the second time we’ve stayed in Wansfell Retreat. Views amazing. Great position on the park. Very comfortable. Some maintenance required on the lodge - bulbs out/dripping gutters etc - but overall another fab stay.

Another wonderful stay at Wansfell Retreat

We have stayed at Wansfell Retreat on a few occasions now and it remains our favourite lodge at Limefitt and never fails to be a lovely place to escape to and enjoy the ideal surroundings. As usual, we found the lodge to be clean, well equipped, and very comfortable. The interior is to a very high standard and feels very much a home from home. The decking and exterior is private and has amazing views. We travel with our dog (Lurcher) and find that the secure decking area is a safe zone for him without having to worry about him escaping. The location of the lodge allows us to choose from a variety of walks, hikes, or Fells either locally or by driving further afield to other parts of the Lakes. On site there is the reliable Haybarn Inn which has always been a good place to have a few drinks or a hearty pub meal which we always enjoy visiting. There are also lots of other dog-friendly pubs serving food around the area to choose from. We've been visiting Limefitt for a number of years now and will certainly continue to come back.

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.
