We returned to Grizedale Lodge this February to find new owners, Richard and Debs and a lot of changes to the place from our last stay. The improvements that they have made so far have made the place even more beautiful than we remembered it, it is cosy and welcoming and we just loved our visit! Richard and Debs are wonderful hospitable hosts who made our stay a memorable one, always at hand to offer advice and suggestions!
Having a beautiful sitting room now for guests to relax in after a day of walking was a real treat. The log burner is a wonderful touch (Richards pride and joy!) to a room with a magnificent view, giving the room that warm relaxing feel where you could just nod off or play games with other guests or just read a book.
The food was really fantastic, a good hearty breakfast to start the day and the wholesome home-made evening meals now on offer were well worth dining in for. Richards fresh bread and olives really satisfied the taste buds!!
We love coming to Grizedale lodge, not only for its beautiful walks and scenery on the doorstep but for a really well catered relaxing break away from it all, where nothing is too much trouble, but it also has plenty to offer if you want the activities right on your doorstep such as the go ape just down the road!
We will be returning again and would strongly advise you to go and stay at Grizedale lodge as it really is a magical place!!
Thank you to Richard and Deb for our very special stay!
