Stayed at the Lodge 2 nights (Friday/Saturday). We booked last minute and struggled to find somewhere that was a) available and b) would take dogs. Location: We knew it was fairly remote but wanted to do some walking so we were fine with this. It's pretty easy to get to Keswick or Grasmere and beyond by car and there's a... More

We stayed here for 2 nights with our cocker spaniel. Rooms spacious and clean with terriffic views from the breakfast/bar area. Very comfortable bed, great shower and plentiful tea and cofee making facilities. Car parking on site. Continental breakfast included and we were not short of things to choose from. Highly recommend for dog owners and families with children.

Booked on the basis of availability and price, a double room and put up bed for the grand-daughter; so what a surprise to find this beautiful, modern lodge nestled into the magnificent scenery near Thirlmere. Far enough away from the well trodden paths to feel you are still out in the wilds, but handy enough for short trips to local... More

We stayed here for 2 nights for my sisters wedding and we could not have been happier with the service we received. The lady who checked us in (sorry did not catch your name) was very pleasant and check in was easy and hassle free. The room itself was a good size and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was more of...
