3 night stay at a a fantastic lodge

Superb lodge. Very modern all round and kitchen work tops etc. The heating constantly works and simple to use unlike other lodges stayed at which seem to be on timers that you could not work out. Showers brilliant and powerful. The lounge was super comfy and felt like being at home. Would stay again and recommend. For a dog friendly lodge it was super. Well done to the owners!!!!

Excellent lodge, would highly recommend!

Booked a long weekend trip here for my wife's birthday and she and I loved it! The lodge was very clean and the xmas decorations was a nice bonus. Plenty of equipment available which was a big help. Very short walk to the lake front and the hot tub was nice on a cold winter's night too. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in the lake district.

Fab honeymoon

The lodge was perfect for our honeymoon although the weather was the wettest we have ever had staying in the lakes! We had a few issues such as the hot tub not working initially and the DVD player dying on us. The maintenance man was great, he got the hot tub working as best as possible without draining it and taking it apart- which wasn’t ideal but ok and he brought us a new DVD player within about an hour!! For me it would always be better for dog friendly lodges to have laminated floors throughout the living area. The only other thing which i really was disappointed in- was that there is no parasol over the hot tub- meaning it was not protected from the rain, which is one of the reasons we chose it. When we asked we simply got told the owners must have taken it away.

Review date: 25th October 2019

Thank you for your review and ratings, Sarah. We are delighted to hear you had a fab honeymoon – despite the weather. Although a few things were not quite right for when you arrived, we were pleased these were quickly resolved and you went on to enjoy your stay. Having said that, the hot tub although had no parasol is designed to be used in all weather (even in the rainy lakes!) and to some it is very much part of the hot tub experience. With that in mind we do hope you enjoyed the tub, and where better to relax after a day in the Lakes? Thank you for your further comment and we have passed this to the lodge owners to consider. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you again soon.

A wonderful long weekend

We recently stayed in woodpecker lodge for a long weekend. It is a beautiful lodge; cosy, comfortable and modern. We had everything we needed and more. The location was great and despite the rain all weekend we still loved it. The best part by far was the hot tub; so wonderfully warm with colour changing lights! Even sitting in the rain and cold didn't dampen our spirits in the hot tub. Its was probably more fun because of the rain. Loved It! I would quite happily stay in this lodge every time we come back, and we definitely will come back!

Really enjoyed our stay.

Really enjoyed our stay in this cabin. Good location to water front and amenities. Only suggestion was that sofa wasn't the most comfortable but I understand with it being dog friendly.
