This lodge is in a quaint location and literally in the middle of nowhere. Everything you need pretty much is there. There was a lovely welcome tray with cake and tea & coffee.
6 adults were staying here. Personally I wouldn't advise 6 adults to stay. The double bedroom and twin bedroom were brilliant. Bunk beds not suitable for adults. There is also not enough seating for 6 adults in the sofas.
Outside is the hot tub which is a lovely bonus with a lovely view of the fields. Lovely and warm. The only thing I'd advise for this is to get a decent light near the hot tub to allow safe access to the hot tub and to get in it. We had to use phone torches to guide our way in.
A lovely weekend had in lapwing. If you like the middle of nowhere it's ideal for you.
Five of us plus our puppy stayed in Lapwing Lodge, and it was amazing. A great size, everything you could need, a wonderful location with plenty of great walks and a fabulous hot tub. Lots of days out including a visit to Wensleydale, Carlisle, Gretna Green, Sizergh Farm, Sedburgh - to name but a few- the information folder in the lodge is great for ideas. I had a Sainsburys delivery at the lodge, but we also ate out at The Fat Lamb- good food and dog friendly. Can't wait to return to Artlegarth!
The lodge is set in a beautiful and peaceful location. The hot tub is amazing! The lodge is plenty big enough for the 6 of us ladies staying there. I only met Neil the owner who is very friendly and helpful. Nice touch upon arrival of a cake and cups / tea/coffee waiting for us. This place is highly recommended
Myself and my partner have just got back from a 2 night stay in the Lapwing Lodge. This place is beautiful and was the perfect getaway for us!
We enjoyed a lovely 2 hour walk in the countryside and walked into the village last night, it's just over a mile from the lodge. We had some fantastic food at The Black Swan Inn and would certainly recommend it!
As for the lodge, what more could we need, it's like home away from home, with the added bonus of a hot tub!
Neil and Jennie were fantastic in booking and welcoming us to the lodge. We had a lovely welcome card and cake waiting for us on arrival.
We've already booked our next visit and will be returning with friends in November!
Beautiful, spacious accommodation in private grounds, close to lovely pubs National Parks yet rural enough to enjoy total peace and tranquility. Luxurious Hot Tubs with stunning mountain views, are a major bonus to help soak away the stresses of life in idyllic surroundings, perfect place to relax with family and friends. Great value too.
Stayed in Lapwing lodge 27th-30th December 2015.
2 Adults 2 teens and our beautiful Collie.
Had a fantastic time. Hot tub made it even more enjoyable.
Lodge was beautifully decorated, lights Christmas tree and decorations.
A lovely cake and white roses waiting for us on arrival.
Perfect for a relaxing chilled get back into nature break.
Just returned from a truly wonderful 4 night stay at Lapwing Lodge, perfect location, everything you need is supplied in the property and the owners give excellent customer service before, during and after your stay. All the information you would need during your stay is supplied. Location is out of this world. Thank you Neil and Jennie, we will be returning and have already recommended to friends.
