We spent our wedding anniversary at St John's Lodge 25th-27th September and had a wonderful stay. The Lodge is ideally situated just 10 minutes walk into the town, and a pleasant stroll home in the evening helping to walk off the delicious food we consumed during our stay. We parked our car on arrival and didn't climb back into it... More

Just returned from a 2night break at St John's Lodge just me and the husband. We stayed in room 5 which was very spacious and comfortable. Super king size bed was great. Enjoyed our breakfast both mornings and can recommend the breakfast kebabs. Spotlessly clean and very friendly staff. We got a free pass to Low Wood Leisure Centre just... More

We don't really write reviews on trip advisor but on this occasion we feel it was absolutely deserved. This beautiful lodge was perfectly situated by Windermere lake, Bowness has many delicious restaurants and quaint cafes. The staff at St Johns Lodge were incredibly friendly and full of knowledge and recommendations for the area. The room's standard was very high, the... More

My wife and I have just completed an exceptional week at St. John's in Windermere thanks to Rich and his team. They looked after us magnificently, especially by catering for my wife's Lactose and Gluten intolerances, we really appreciate it. The place is in an ideal location, midway between Windermere train station and Bowness. Breakfast is excellent with a wide... More

My daughter and I stayed here recently and were very pleased with the accommodations. I chose room number 5, a large king room, and it was indeed very spacious. It was also very quiet with a comfortable sofa and dressing table along with a large bathroom with walk-in shower. The host, Rich, and the rest of his staff were warm... More

My wife and I stayed for three nights and really enjoyed our time at St John's. The location is good, giving you an easy walk into Bowness, yet not being to near in terms of volume of traffic and tourists. Great customer service, on the phone before you arrive, and through-out your stay. Best of all for me are the... More
