We wanted somewhere that was unspoilt, away from busy 'tourist' spots and that took dogs. The Curlew lodge fitted the bill perfectly. A beautiful cake and flowers greeted us on arrival and the hamper we ordered was waiting full of locally sourced ingredients.
The kitchen had everything you could possibly need for catering down to cling film and washing up liquid and the lounge was large and comfortable.
However the highlight of the whole stay was the hot tub. We used it every day - towels provided - it was wonderful.
Family of four plus dog.
Loved it. Very relaxing, comfortable with beautiful surroundings.
Lots of walking involved.
Lovely little village close by with two traditional pubs. Ambleside a short drive away. Lots of places to eat and drink there.
We stayed here as a group of girls (5 of us) and had a lovely time! It was my birthday so there was a nice surprise waiting on the table for me ( I won't say what it was as don't want to spoil it for anyone else!)
The lodge was perfect with a selection of dvds and our own private hot tub overlooking the fields, nice surrounding walks and 2 pubs in the village , one with pool table darts and some really nice coffee liqueurs! I'd recommend that you go!
and I would definitely stay there again :-)
This is our 3rd year in a row we Jane stayed.. we just love it. Jennie & Neil
Do everything possible to make your stay special. Beautiful lodges, idyllic surroundings.. we’ll be back next year
I never seem to write a review on anything but I just wanted to share our family Christmas holiday experience at artlegarth lodges as this place is absolutely amazing.
We were abit worried as it was our first Christmas away with 3 children aged 3, 6 and 9 and didn’t know if the children would be entertained as it’s rural. But I can honestly say all of us including our two dogs enjoyed this holiday.
The cabin was clean and supplied with everything you could possibly need. The scenery is amazing! There is too much to list but to put it in short terms the whole place is out of this world. Better than we could have hoped.
Neil and Jennie were there to great us when we arrived and answered any questions we had, they were also available at the other end of the phone if we needed them. Lovely couple and made you feel like you had known them ages.
Booked again for Christmas 2018
If you have any doubts... don’t because if you want a relaxing break with beautiful views friendly owners where nothing is too much trouble and not far to travel to other villages and towns this is the place you want to stay! ❤️❤️
I came here with a group of my friends for my hen do and we had such an amazing weekend. It was our fourth visit and we can’t wait to come back. The lodge is always immaculately clean. Curlew in perticual has such a homely feel and is well kitted out with anything you may need. Neil and Jennie are excellent hosts and are always at the end of the phone if you have any problems, nothing seems to be much trouble.
On our arrival we had prosecco waiting, a delicious chocolate cake and a lovely welcome card.
Thank you for helping make me Hen do such a memerable experience.
Been visiting Artlegarth for a few years now and we absolutely love the place! Every thing is perfect! Especially the hot tub. No one there to bother us, so me and my 2 children can chill out and not worry about a thing. Thank you for making our stay so special every single time ❤
