“Fantastic Midweek Break”
Reviewed April 23, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The communication from the lodge owner Margaret was spot on, when we arrived a food pack and bottle of wine was left by Maragaret which was a nice touch .The lodge was spotlessly clean and very comfy we had sky sports which was great , so I didn't need to miss my football and rugby .The outdoor furniture was great because we had great weather , did not have time to use the BBQ .The bedrooms , bath, shower, kitchen and lounge area were first class.
The surrounding area like the boat marina on site and the lovely towns of Grasmere and Ambleside made this break really enjoyable.
Will definitely be booking again . Thank You.

“Amazing - loved it”
Reviewed April 10, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Had such a lovely holiday, the lodge is so beautiful, you can't get a better location right on the lake ! Easy to get to. We went by bus to Ambleside and Bowness, the staff were really good in helping us find our way around. The lodge has a fantastic deck that we spent a day on the sun loungers and had a bbq :-)

“Enjoyable stay”
Reviewed April 4, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Very well equipped lodge with high quality furnishings, crockery and glassware. Very clean and spacious lounge/dining area with the benefits of dishwasher, washer and tumbler which helped as we had a particularly wet week including snow, sleet and hail stones.

Little touches like new dish clothes, bottle of wine, welcome pack etc were appreciated.

Think the pub let the site down it down as it was more like a service station drop off with lots of unsupervised children although food and drink was not brilliant but of an acceptable standard.

“Fantastic lodge, great facilities”
Reviewed January 15, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We stayed here as a family for a weekend away in January. Unfortunately the weather was poor to say the least but thankfully the lodge was so wonderfully homely that we didn't worry at all about been stuck indoors. The rooms are all a great size, easily enough for the six of us. Very high standard of fit out also. We will definitely be looking to return.

“Excellent Accommodation”
Reviewed December 28, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

The lodge was a wonderful place for our short trip to the Lake District. Our entire group agreed that it was very clean, cosy and welcoming. The complimentary bottle of wine was a very nice added touch too. All in all, we would definitely recommend the twa dogs lodge to friends and consider staying here again ourselves in future.

“Incredible”
Reviewed December 24, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

I'm usually quite cautious of booking things online, but after reading the reviews I couldn't wait to arrive! Booking was simple, quick and all explained. The cabin was spotless, had everything we needed there (including bread, milk and orange juice) and the views were beautiful (minus the rain!) The whole lodge was beautifully decorated and exactly as described on both the website and by previous reviews. The birthday balloon and wine on arrival was a lovely touch and we would not hesitate to return, hopefully when the weather is a little better! Our dog loved the area, in particular Wray Castle. There are lovely walks around the grounds and they even do a 'bring your own dog' sled lesson (unfortunately they were booked up during our stay).
Thank you very much for a wonderful holiday, we hope to be returning in the near future!
