Our stay here was an absolute delight. Hawkesdale Lodge is absolutely beautiful and so welcoming. The food is delicious & everyone is looked after so well. Such a lovely family, we can't wait to come back again soon!

Lorraine is one of those types of people that strive for perfection in everything she does and it shows. The rooms are superbly presented, beds comfortable and the views breathtaking. Breakfast was a sublime foray into home cooking and local produce again provided with the utmost care. I have stayed at over 100 B&Bs and hotels across our green isle... More

Our hosts Lorraine and Martin could not have been more welcoming with Martin sending out a search party for a few lost souls! Firstly we were spoiled with a delicious cream tea followed by a luxurious soak in the beautifully appointed bathrooms. After a spectacular supper of Salmon and Eton Mess we warmed ouselves around the firepit whilst taking in... More

My wife selected Hawksdale Lodge on the strength of the reviews and we were not disappointed. We had elected to occupy the self-catered apartment which forms the East wing of the house. On arrival we were treated to freshly-made banana cake and tea, the perfect antidote to 5 hours of driving and the rigours of the M6. Our hostess, Lorraine,... More

I can only endorse all the other reviews! this B&B offers a view beyond reasonable expectations and food and hospitality to match the view! We read a Guardian review and followed his recommendation to take up the hosts offer of providing dinner rather than walk to the pub- and we were thoroughly rewarded by Lorraine's excellent culinary skills and will...

We have just returned from an excellent night staying at Hawksdale Lodge. We arrived after a long, beautiful days walking in the northern fells (rather disheveled & weary) to drinks and homemade cakes sitting on their terrace overlooking their amazing grounds and the hills beyond. Our room was spectacular and all so peaceful. Lorraine & Martyn recommended an excellent pub... More

Hands down our best accommodation experience in three months in the UK and Europe. Beautiful home, luxuriant rooms, glorious countryside, delicious breakfast, delightful hosts. Our two year old said it all as we packed up to leave: "I want to stay here". Worth every penny.

Four of us walked the Cumbrian Way last week from Carlisle to Ulverston. Our first night was spent at Hawksdale Lodge and it didnt disappoint. From the moment Lorraine welcomed us into her beautiful home we were well looked after and had a wonderful stay. A delicious pot of tea and home made cakes were ready for us on arrival.... More

We stayed at Hawksdale Lodge over the New Year break and we have an amazing time. A great location near to the Lakes National Park. The property was lovely and Lorraine had thought of everything, great attention to detail and amazing food - would highly recommend staying, we will be back again

We stayed at Lorraine and Martin's apartment in early September and it was such a relaxing break with our toddler. Both Lorraine and Martin made us feel so welcome with a much needed cup of tea and cake after a journey from Aberdeen and made our little boy feel so at home in their kitchen. He loved Kit, who was... More
