Christmas hoilday

We stayed here for 5 nights over the Christmas as family of 5 with our 2 dogs. Lovely decorated for Xmas even left us a card and presents. Very clean and beds are comfortable loads of space for storage, kitchen well equipped. Hot tub was the highlight to the stay, hot and very easy to use privacy was good as u face the woods we had deers walking past most mornings kids loved exploring the woods. Recommend this lodge to anyone it was a lovely stay.

Thank you for your review and super ratings, Hailey. We were delighted to read your comments and to hear you had a fantastic stay over Christmas. Yew Tree Lodge is very well equipped for a comfortable stay, complete with its own private hot tub. A cosy retreat and idyllic for a Christmas family holiday. Thank you for recommending Yew Tree Lodge and we will be delighted to welcome you all again.

Relaxing and Enjoyable Stay

Our family stayed in Yew tree lodge during September and one of our children is a young baby. The baby essentials we requested for our arrival were available when we arrived. The lodge was maintained and presented beautifully, its location is in a lovely spot on the holiday site nestled in some trees (which gave it that extra charm). We really enjoyed the cosy evenings in this lodge and when faced with a slight issue with the bolier Lake District Lodges team attended to this straight away and made sure it was fixed. Customer service was excellent. Communication on the run up and after our stay was excellent and informative. We would love to return! Thank you.

Long Weekend Away.

We had a lovely stay however I did feel some areas lacked in cleanliness. The microwave was thick with grease and around the top bunk of the bunkbed that was covered in cobwebs. I also went to open the travel cot which was thick with green mound. A little disappointing considering how much you pay to stay in these types of places. Location was great and lots to do around the complex. Kids loved the hot tub. 1 last thing reading the review book some people got bunches of flowers etc left out for them arriving. We never things like that should be consistent.

Review date: 02nd October 2017

Thank you for taking time to review your stay, Amanda. Your comments are very important to us and although we were pleased to hear you had a lovely stay, it appears there were a few things not quite to your satisfaction. As you kindly brought these to our attention in the afterstay correspondence we were able to deal with them promptly – and we have spoken at length with the independent cleaning company responsible for preparing the lodge and (in apologising themselves) have assured us that it was an oversight. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused. With regard to flowers on arrival (or bottles of prosecco etc), these are only in the lodge at the guests request and paid for accordingly. Lodges are often booked for a special occasion and some guests prefer to add an extra little something prior to arriving, of which we are very happy to arrange. Yew Tree is a superb option for those looking for great value accommodation in a prime location, and complete with a hot tub. We will be delighted should you choose to return in the near future.

Warm and comfortable

Very well equipped cabin with everything you need for a holiday. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived and the location is great. It's quite private and tucked away in a quiet corner but close to all the site facilities. The hot tub was cleaned and re-filled before we arrived and was a great feature! The cabin is warm and homely so the perfect place to relax after a day out walking.

Long weekend at Yew Tree

The Park Dean site was surprisingly good, with great pool and restaurant and a lake front jetty. Yew Tree is in a good location with regards to amenities as it's very close, but it's also close to the road so traffic noise was an issue to us. The lodge is very nice overall but a few areas of improvement we felt are required. Towels and bedding have seen better days and smelt musty. Bathroom needs an overhaul, we showered at the pool instead. Outside area of lodge is lovely as is the hot tub. Place needed what I call and deep clean though throughout the interior. Overall we enjoyed our stay but wouldn't go backmanily due to traffic noise and cleanliness.

Review date: 21st August 2017

We appreciate your review and apologise that a few things weren't quite right for your stay. We take on board your comments and have also passed them on to the lodge owners. Going forward we will liaise with the owners on a regular basis to follow up on the points raised. Although Yew Tree is fairly near to a road it is concealed by trees and a high wall. We can only apologise for any traffic noise you heard during your stay, it is usually a quiet road during the evening and throughout the night. Having said that the Lake District is a very popular tourist destination and the summer months are our peak season. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused during your stay. Yew Tree Lodge offers great value accommodation with the added bonus of a hot tub, as well as perfectly positioned for visiting the many towns, villages and attractions nearby.

Yew Tree Lodge

We found the cabin clean, tidy and containing everything needed! The one thing I think needs updating is the shower room! It's too small for 6 people and the standard of decoration was poor! Apart from that everything was fine for a short break!

Review date: 14th August 2017

Thank you for your feedback comments, Madeleine. Yew Tree Lodge is a comfortable three-bedroom lodge with a hot tub and will accommodate up to four adults and two children. Although we note your comments and have also passed these on to the lodge owners for their reference, this particular lodge offers great value accommodation and ideal as a base to explore the wonderful Lake District. We would advise larger groups of adults or families to opt for a lodge with an ensuite to give more space and privacy. Our bookings team are always happy to help or advise on suitable accommodation, or take a peek at our website for further information and photos.

Summer 17

Spent 4 nights here in July 2017. Really enjoyed our stay and the cabin itself was really nice. The hot tub was great and inside it was comfortable. Loved the location of the cabin. The only downfall I could mention was that the outside decking could of done with a lick of paint but that wasn't a major issue and didn't affect our stay. Overall a great cabin and looking to stay again next year.

Our holiday away

+ Well we were not disappointed when Yew Tree came into view, although other lodge's are close by Yew Tree feels secluded especially in the wonderful hot-tub. The lodge itself was comfortable and functional. The lodge is in an excellent location on the park been very close to the main complex. - We did however have some cleanliness issues in the bathroom (this did not distract from the wonderful holiday). The lodge would benefit from a BBQ or at least somewhere to stand one ( was a little jealous watching other lodges close by enjoying BBq's when we could not).

Review date: 04th July 2017

Thank you for your review, Mark and letting us know of a couple of things not quite right for you during your stay. The cleaning should have been to a high standard and we were sorry to hear that on this occasion it seems this was not the case. It has so far received very good cleaning scores and as a company we have high expectations. We have contacted the cleaning company responsible and passed on your comments. Had you contacted us at the time the housekeepers would have returned to put things right although we do realise that should not have been necessary. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused. We note your suggestion for a BBQ although due to guests not cleaning them in the past and complaints received, the owner only provides a slab or frame on which to use a disposable. With that said we assume from your comments and ratings that you went on to have an enjoyable stay. The lodge offers great value accommodation for families or couples looking for a relaxing holiday in the Lakes, and comes complete with a hot tub!
