“Excellent and very comfortable”
Reviewed July 5, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

It's very nicely done up and the hosts very helpful. The kitchen is furnished thoughtfully and comes with everything that you may need ( including a weighing scale!) they have enough board games etc to keep kids and adults busy if you decide to avoid the rains. The cottage is actually a part of a holiday home and is located about a mile from the centre of Windermere . Lots of nature trails nearby. The place also has a small convenience store. A special mention for the hosts. Thanks for everything. We really enjoyed the wine and the lovely herbs you planted outside

WOW! Describes this place!

I decided to treat my mam for her birthday to a short break in the lake district, a place we both love. Grassmere and Ambleside being our firm favourites.
Searching for a place to stay we stumbled across this lodge and made enquires.
Margaret the owner was very quick to respond, so friendly and polite.
Upon arrival we were extremely pleased with the location as our favourite walks were on our doorstep.
The cabin was beautiful and more luxurious then the photos could ever show! On the kitchen bench was a bottle of wine and box of chocolates, my mam was so touched and thankful by this gesture from Margaret.
There was bread and milk in the fridge/freezer and every kitchen utensil/amenities you could think of.
The living room/dining room was large and spacious and felt as if we were at home.
The bedrooms were equipped to store all our walking equipment and the beds were so comfy and warm.
There was even shower gel, shampoo and conditioner in both the bathrooms.

To sum up, this lodge is excellent value for money, so clean and tidy, well equipped, felt like home and the small things left like milk and bread made us feel very thankful we got in contact with Margaret. Oh and the dogs loved the biscuits left for them too

We are already looking to book again.

“Fab lodge, fab location, lovely owner!”
Reviewed June 19, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I stayed here for a week whilst the Great North Swim was on with my husband, brother in Law, sister in law, her husband and their baby as well as our two dogs. Plenty of space for us all! The lodge was in perfect condition and so clean when we arrived, Margaret left us a few little extras such as wine and bread, lovely touch to arrive to. The lodge has all the amenities you would ever dream of needing during your stay. Our dogs loved lying on the deck and watching the world go by. The location is great, close to Windermere and Ambleside, and Brockholes which is an easy walk to to catch the ferry. White Cross Bay is a nice site as well, safe and friendly staff, with a lovely marina and wooded area which are ideal for dog walking. Pool area is great as well.
Thanks again Margaret, we will definitely be returning next year
