“Puddleduck Lodge Part II”

person found this review helpful

After visiting in 2012 (first TI review) myself & my fiancé decided we would definitley be back! This time we took Matthew (8years) & our wee pooch, Marley!

Matthew was very excited as we had told him all about it, "Best weekend ever"!! Marley enjoyed the new surroundings aswell.

This is such a gorgeous cabin, in a gorgeous part of the Lakes! 10mins drive to Windermere with lovely walks, views, cafés & coffee shops!

Limefitt Park where the cabin is based is great too. The park staff are friendly, a handy shop, adventure play park, dog field, pub with lovely food & games room, pool, darts etc!

This was our second time down & Matthews first, he can't wait to come back. We didn't want to leave.

Thanks again! :-)

“We didn't want to leave!”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 for a stay in December 2013

A truly beautiful lodge! Kathy & Robert, you're so lucky to have this!!!

The location is fabulous, beautiful surroundings, stunning views......
The park itself is great, everything you need. A small but perfectly stocked shop on site, a doggie park, a pub, pay phone, there was no need for us to leave the park.

Puddleduck Lodge is warm, inviting, cosy, picture perfect. A beautiful location on the river. Everything you need is already there, plenty of plates, cutlery, glasses, cups -everything! The bedrooms are lovely and spacious, comfy beds, big chunky quilts, fluffy pillows.

There is nothing, at all that I have negative to say about our stay! Yes, your mobile phone won't work, and unless you're up by the pub or the shop the wi-fi won't either - this was my favourite part!!!! Until we hit the dual carriage way coming home - silence! Yes!!!!

I would highly recommend this to anyone, even my teenage daughter loved it!!!!! Bonus!

Thank you, thank you THANK YOU! We will be returning, I've already checked your calendar to see when we can return!!!!

“best doggie holiday”
Reviewed September 29, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

excellent lodge overlooking the river very well appointed and cosy interior. the fully enclosed dog field is brilliant to use before you set out for the day. the only problem we had was with the gas fire we couldn't get it to light and there was no phone signal to contact the owners about it. other than that it was great and would highly recommend this lodge.

We’re really pleased you had such a great stay and enjoyed being in a Lodge by the river. And thanks for giving us 5 stars out of 5!!

The lodge does have a cosy interior and hopefully the electric heaters and plug-in radiator kept you warm without the fire, which works fine but can be tricky to light.

Only the vodafone network covers the Troutbeck valley but we can always be contacted via reception who have all our contact numbers (and a telephone landline!) Or you can send us an email via the free Wifi.

Thanks for a lovely review. We know just how Jet felt when he had to go home. A lot of people feel the same way!
We'll look forward to welcoming you back to Puddleduck Lodge next year when you can all try a few more walks. Hopefully there will be enough time to discover a bit more of the Lake District and some of the local facilities too.
