Absolutely amazing!!! First visit to the Lake District and the lodge has played a huge part in ensuring we will return (hopefully staying here). Non-drivers but in fab position for public transport.

Long drive but totally worth it! Lodge was lovely, well positioned, close to great walks, scenery and watersports.  We all agreed it was a wonderful family holiday.  Lots of sunshine so very lucky.  I loved it here and the trip was so inspiring.  I conquered everything in my wake!  I even conquered my fear of heights!  It was worth the 6 hour drive here definately.  There is one word for it and that is brilliant!

Beautiful, clean, cosy lodge in a lovely setting.  Really felt like a home from home.  Used the pool every day and ate in the restaurant one night (food lovely).  Our boys loved it and are already asking when we can come again.  Big thanks to 'Twitter' as we would never have got to know about this gorgeous lodge without it.

We had a lovely stay, thank you.  We were very impressed with the cabin.  It was warm and comfortable.  The cabin was very well equipped with a lovely sitting area.  The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking needs.  We had a very relaxing stay.  We left the car at home and managed everything by using public transport or walking.  We visited Beatrix Potters house at Near Sawrey, did the tree top trek at Brockhole, went on a lake cruise and went to Fellini’s restaurant in Ambleside.  A busy 5 days.  Also used the swimming pool.  A great holiday. Thank you x
