“Fantastic”
Reviewed May 15, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

10 ladies and 1 dog stayed and what a fantastic wkend we all had even the dog because there are 3 seperate gardens which are all fenced off and great for the dogs to just explore without having to be on lead.the lodge itself was very clean and spacious with the use of the washing machine,dryer, iron and ironing board.we all had a great chilled out wkend with the added bonus of the hot tub which was great to just sit in (under cover if it rains)and admire the views.cant wait to return again next yr

“Lovely Property”
Reviewed April 1, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

My sister booked this property. For 3 nights there were 7 adults, 1 teenager and 4 dogs (2 of which were small dogs), and for the remaining 2 nights there were 6 adults, 1 teenager, a baby and 4 dogs (the smallest dog had gone home along with 3 adults due to work committments and were replaced by 2 other adults, a baby and another dog),
The Lodge is a lovely property and very spacious and is in reach of many places (mostly by car).
The only criticism I have is that you are only left 3 dishwasher tablets, 3 days worth of washing up liquid and 1 toilet roll per toilet (so you need to take extra of these with you). Housekeeping could do with being picked up on slightly - One or two of the bedrooms had dust webs hanging from ceilings and on the walls behind beds, only spotted the ones under the beds when reaching to get something from underneath (also saw one or two webs on / around wooden furniture, which can be off-putting for some). The shelves in the fridge door are on the verge of falling out and the fridge door didn't always close (so double check when using the fridge). We found the hot water went off on an evening in the kitchen and upstairs (downstairs seemed to be fine) and we found out that by putting the emersion switch on upstairs that helped.
If you take dogs ensure you do not leave them unattended in the play area. This area does have fencing around, but there are sheep in the adjoining fields. We also saw a couple of ducks in/around the pond area where you can enjoy a picnic.
The Hot Tub is amazing (the light switch just to the left of the back door prior to exiting into the garden area). Fab way to relax at the end of the day. Someone comes in between 8.00 am and 9.00 am to check the hot tub so do not let dogs out during this time.
Best place we found for mobile phone signal - kitchen window behind the kitchen table.
The Greyhound Pub in the village (5 mins walk away). Very welcoming, dogs welcome and food was excellent when we ate there.
We went to the coast and a local resident gave us names of places of interest that we visited, including Kadampa Buddhist Temple (dogs allowed in the grounds), There is also a gift shop and cafe there and a wood walk, Coniston - found we could get supplies here from a local Village Co-Op Store and the Spar on the garage forecourt (a decent sized shop), Ambleside, Cartmel, Lake Windermere (free ferry crossing for blue badge holders), Hawkshead (Hill Top House - Beatrix Potter's house - dogs not allowed in, someone would need to stay outside with them). You can do the walk to the lake that Beatrix and William undertook, but if rained / is raining expect to get rather muddy - no cost to do this walk and it is a lovely walk (slightly up hill) and you can get a map from where you buy tickets to enter the house.
We stopped off in Morecombe on our way home (not so dog friendly) so if the weather is bad there didn't seem to be anywhere to go with dogs other than to stand under canapy's that only a few shops had in situ. Lovely cafe on the pier, but dogs not allowed in, and we sat outside - they have a nice menu to cater for most people.
We also went up onto the top of the mountains after leaving Ambleside (very narrow roads, some very, very steep (personally I would not recommend if you have a long vehicle as some of the bends are very tight and on one or two you need to go part way round then reverse back slightly to get round. Beautiful scenary once you get to the top.
Overall - great stay and would stay at Bank End Lodge again (especially if there are a few of us going). You gain access at 3.00pm on day of arrival and have to leave by 10.00 am on day of departure. They provide bedding and towels so you do not need to take these. First time of visiting the Lake District, but will definitely be going again and exploring further afield, just wish we had found the time to start going years ago.

“Nice Christmas Getaway”
Reviewed December 29, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

To get away from it all at Christmas is what we wanted. This is exactly what we got here. Ten of us plus 2 dogs found the property to be just right for our needs, Plenty of space for everyone and to finally have a christmas dinner where we didnt need to seek extra seats and be squashed around the table! The owners had also put up soem crimbo decorations which is a nice touch. The property was clean and tidy upon arrival, towels supplied also, though i would still bring some with you as the Hot Tub visits took up a lot of them!! The house is warm and furnished appropriately for a large group, the beds were very comfortable (we had the ground floor room overlooking the garden with great views over the village and to the hills) It is exceptionally dark at night here so bring a torch if you need to navigate to the loo at night! There are walks to be had around the property there is a map but we didnt find this of much use so a new version would be a better addition. The village doesnt have much in it, the petrol station is also a little shop and the pub opens at 4pm. Overall we had a great time and a wonderful christmas with most of the family together. Not really any criticisms of this place other than the tvs that are fixed to the wall could do with being placed on a moveable bracket. The Hot Tub was well used and very nice with lovely views. Thank you and all the best for 2017

“Fantastic week away with family and friends”
Reviewed July 21, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Stayed at Bank End Lodge for a week for my 30th Birthday and had an absolutely fantastic time. The house is very well equiped and exceptionally comfortable, like a home away from home. Doesn't feel like a rental at all. The house was spotless when we arrived and the layout and rooms were brilliant. KItchen facilitiesgreat too with a dishwasher, big oven and massive fridge freezer to accomodate the numbers.
Loads of car parking for guests and access into the house on two levels proved useful for loading and unloading cases etc. The garden was perfect with a great stone table and chairs set up with fantastic views and the hot tub really was a worthwhile addition to the booking! Slept like a baby all week!
Location is fairly remote (bonus!) so take all you might need (loads of storage space in the house), although there are small local shops dotted around to get basics. Lots of good walking direct on the doorstep (with great views to mountains and coast) and lots of interesting things to do if you take a drive out. Plenty of pubs to venture out to for nice food as well as one within walking distance now too.
Spent every night in the garden rain or shine!
Would def recommend to large groups/families, great place for a good get together. Also great for dogs with fields on the doorstep to let them loose into for a run and good dog friendly beaches nearby.
(Tips - take some hand towels and hand soap for the three bathrooms. Also, we needed extra dishwasher tablets and if you want to do any clothes washing (unlikely on holiday!) take some suds.)
Thanks Bank End Lodge, hope to visit again soon!
