We arrived on Friday evening after a long drive and were greeted by a friendly Rich who checked us in, showed us to our beautiful room which he had very kindly upgraded and then gave us some useful information about the local area- best places to visit and where to get a good bite to eat! After heading out for... More

St John's Lodge is run by genuinely friendly and hardworking stuff who were very helpful, polite and made us feel very welcomed. We stayed over Christmas and we got complimentary Chocolates and Card which was a very nice touch. The breakfast menu was probably the best menu I've seen and tasted in UK. Tasty, good size portions and lots of... More

This is a long overdue post. We stayed at St. John's Lodge in Jun 2015 for 2 nights while we were in Lake District. Breakfast was superb! Rich was very helpful and recommended us a day hike which turned out to be beautiful. He even gave us specific directions and printed the map for us. We loved our stay here... More

A superb place to stay with staff carrying a smile all the time no matter what your demands would be. A warm atmosphere and the rooms are amazing. A great place to celebrate your 33rd birthday. With the warmth of the guest house and the wintry snow of the fells makes it a perfect place to stay

We stayed here last August whilst travelling around the uk, stay was ok however we were a little disappointed after reading such fantastic reviews, it didn't meet our expectations. They claim to have parking ,we weren't able to park onsite at all during our stay as ,they only have 3 spaces and I think they have about 9 rooms !!... More

Hi there, Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback. I've now made the description of the parking places clearer in our advertising and we now try to include a "handy places to park" section in our check-ins to make it easier for our guests. The secondary glazing on our large bay window is now fixed and has reduced external... More
