We have just returned from our second short break at Grizedale Lodge and enjoyed it every bit as much as the last time. Richard made every effort to ensure we were comfortable and the breakfasts were as beautiful as ever. We were brought tea and coffee on arrival (for which there was no charge) and he even found some tasty bits each morning to tempt our elderly dog to eat!
Watching the birds whilst eating breakfast is delightful. The lounge,with its log burning stove, is a lovely place to relax and there is an honesty bar if you fancy a glass of wine. Hawkeshead is only a couple of miles down the road and has several good cafes and pubs. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Each of the rooms is individual but they are all lovely.

This was the second time we have stayed at Grizedale Lodge with Richard and Deb and loved it just as much as the first. We stayed in the recently refurbished room 1 which was magnificent, plenty of room for us and our 16 month old son and his travel cot. He loved exploring the place and especially loved the homemade bread every morning. We couldn’t ask for a nicer place to stay and will definitely be back

We have just come back from a 3 night stay at Grizedale Lodge. We both thought that the cosyness, attention to detail and cleanliness were second to none. The choice of breakfast options was excellent, from fresh fruit to home made bread, porridge, yoghurt etc etc. The breakfast portions were perfect; just right and non- greasy.
It's a fantastic base for active days out in the woods with a great variety of trails ( walking/ mountain biking) and when your kit gets wet just ask to have it put in the drying room; dry in no time!
All in all a great place to stay if you are looking for charm and a friendly atmosphere.
We will definitely try to stay here again and highly recommend.

I stayed here for six nights recently, and really didn't want to leave! I felt welcome from the moment I walked in the door. Both Richard and Deb bend over backwards to make everything perfect. Breakfast was excellent -- whisk(e)y porridge, full cooked breakfast, home-made bread and jams / marmalades, what more could a person want? And birds eating at the feeders outdoors if entertainment is needed, too.

The lodge is perfectly sited for walking (at least three public footpaths within a short walk), all the activities in Grizedale Forest, or having a peaceful stay in the very quiet Lake District countryside.

I will definitely be staying here again the next time I visit the area!

Thank you for your review, and I am pleased you enjoyed your stay so much. Grizedale Lodge is ideally located to explore the forest from the front door, and as some guests have commented they park the car and never use it doing their stay here! I look forward to seeing you again sometime. All the best Richard.

I spent only one night at Grizedale in July with friends and can highly recommend it. The lounge with comfy sofas, games, magazines and a chance to socialise with other guests is a real bonus. The rooms are clean, comfortable and individual (sneaked a look into two or three of them). A couple of minutes away is the Go Ape trail - great fun. The hosts, Richard and Debs couldn't be more welcoming or accommodating - nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is brilliant and will set you up well for a day of walking the nearby hills. We will return!
