“Exceeds expectations”
Reviewed April 16, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

We arrived on Friday for a stay at Ruskin lodge for a special occasion, and it did not disappoint! The whole lodge was so modern, clean and warm and welcoming it completely exceeded all of our expectations! They have literally thought of everything! The location was also perfect, not even fifteen minutes from all of the attractions of Bowness and Windermere but on a lovely quiet park with beautiful views. Dealing with Jo was so easy, always quick to respond and very helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this place. We only wish we could have stayed longer but we will definitely be back.

“Wonderful Lodge - Super Child Friendly”
Reviewed March 4, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Myself, other half, manic toddler & our 14 week old baby visited the lodge in Feb/Mar 2018 for three nights midweek. We arrived just before “The Beast from the East” snow storm made his entrance. The lodge was totally perfect - comfortable, warm, light and exquisite toddler friendly! The enclosed deck is brilliant too as you can turf little ones outside and not have to worry. The huge dump of gorgeous snow only added to trip, we were all in our element. Sledge in hand we were touring the site and visited the play ground on numerous occasions.

Due to the adverse weather conditions, the temperature overnight reached -15•C at one point, which froze the water supply to all the lodges on site. After contacting Jo & Jane in the early morning, who responded almost immediately, site maintenance were on the case defrosting the water feeds into the individual lodges and we had water restored before nightfall. Luckily the heating and hot water are in a separate supply, so we were nice and toasty! I cannot fault Jo & Jane at all. They were brilliant, totally committed to getting a solution - which to be fair was totally out of their hands and down to the crazy weather.

We will most definitely be staying again. We all had a fabulous time, especially the wee man who was in his total element with the snow!

Thanks Jo & Jane for being such caring hosts.

What a fabulous review - thank you!! I think we were all tested last week with the adverse weather. I’m so glad it didn’t spoil your enjoyment at all.

We’d love to welcome you back (maybe in warmer weather) so that you can also explore further afield as the area has so much to offer.

Thanks again for an outstanding review!

“Perfect place to explore southern Lake District”
Reviewed October 10, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Could not find any fault with Ruskin Lodge. Great location on an immaculate site. Would be nice if shop on site had a slightly better selection. There is a pub on site, although we did not eat there, the menu looked very good. The lodge as I said was perfect, we even had the welcome addition of prosecco, fudge and fluffy bath robes.

“Absolute Perfection”
Reviewed July 25, 2017 for a stay in July 2017
1
person found this review helpful

Ruskin Lodge is a wonderful find.
The accommodation is extremely spacious, very comfortable, furnished to a high standard & immaculately presented. The views from the Lodge are a delight. The location is ideally situated for exploring the Lake District & is just a short drive to Ambleside & Windermere. There is a wonderful walk from the Lodge to Ambleside, with spectacular views over Lake Windermere. On the way there is a lovely little tea room called the Old Post Office which we recommend to stop at.
We very much look forward to visiting Ruskin Lodge again & thank the owners, Jane & Jo, for their friendly & professional manner throughout our booking.

“Outstanding!”
Reviewed July 22, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Ruskin Lodge surpassed all our expectations; the quality of the accommodation was superb; all the extras made our stay special and the bottle of prosecco and the fudge was a welcoming touch.
The location of the lodge is ideally set to reach all the amenities in the region.
If it was possible we would give the lodge and its owners care a score of 11 out 10.
Many thanks Jane and Jo for such a wonderful holiday. :)

Amazing cabin with everything you could need and more. Perfect location close to two of the biggest lakes but outside of the hustle and bustle.
