  • A superb, single-storey countryside getaway
  • Relax in your private outdoor hot tub
  • Enjoy an evening BBQ, dining alfresco and stargazing

Property code: OC-GL064

This single-storey property is situated on the private grounds of Applethwaite Hall. Located less than 1 mile from Windermere, it’s an ideal getaway for a family of four or a set of friends plus two hounds wanting to explore the Lake District. Relax in the hot tub whilst one of your group gets dinner going on the BBQ.

The interior is thoroughly modern with swathes of natural light making the open-plan living area a soothing space. The lounge is a sociable spot with a plump sofa that invites you to sit and chat or relax with a good film. When the weather is good, push open the bi-folding doors and let Fido safely roam around the walled patio while you prepare a delicious meal in the bright and modern kitchen. Dine at the elegant table overlooking the lounge or better yet, gather everyone together and eat at the patio table. When the day draws to an end, sleepyheads can choose between a super-king-size bedroom and a twin bedroom. Both bedrooms are wonderfully comfortable and beautifully presented. Outside, the patio area is a charming space. In the morning, enjoy the sound of birdsong in the trees, and in the evening take it easy in the hot tub. Guests also have use of the grounds and wooded area around Applethwaite Hall.

Enjoy woodland walks straight from the door or pull on hiking boots and head with Fido to Wansfell Pike (5 miles). Lake Windermere is 2 miles away and is a beautiful place for a stroll or lakeside picnic. From Lake Windermere, it’s a gentle walk to the top of Orrest Head where you’ll be rewarded with sweeping views.

  • 2 bedrooms – 1 super-king-size, 1 twin zip-and-link (can be made into a king-size on request)
  • 2 bathrooms – 1 bathroom with shower over the bath and WC, 1 en-suite shower room with WC

The cottage is nice and modern with good comfy furniture and nice enclosed garden for dogs but the road or very narrow lane with dry stone walling each side going to the property is a nightmare! If you drive a large car or 4 x 4 You will not enjoy this road. We would not book this property again because of the road and the cottage seems very cold eRead moreven in Summer because it doesnt seem to get much light or sun in there. Bring your own dish cloth! They dont provide one or any tea or coffee pods. The Hot tub is nice but we actually found it too hot. Trying to get the heating to work in the cottage is hit and miss. The weather for our week was really bad, rained almost every day and we needed some warmth in the cottage to dry our clothes and warm up. The welcome pack could be a lot better. Hide

One of the best dog friendly lodges we have stayed in. Every finite detail has been thought of. Our only comments which would be more of an improvement rather than things that were missing was: 1 - The outside tap which has a hosepipe attached would be great if this was a hot / cold dog washing station. 2 - not sure if these were missing or were Read moreavailable pre-covid but bath robes would be a great addition with the hot tub. 3 - 2 towels per person seemed a bit light gives the use of the hot tub and a 7 day stay. As stated although these would be great improvements for the stay they certainly would not stop us booking Bam Lodge again. The original cottages team were great at responding to any concerns or queries and the owners have done an exceptional job with this property. Hide

Had a lovely break at Bam Lodge. Was a bit cold on arrival heating could have done with being switched on a few hours before arrival. Heating is quite noisy when trying to sleep in the master room. Master bed was a bit hard (personal preference) Over all a fantastic place to stay due to being fully dog friendly. The place was impeccably clean on arRead morerival. Did have a few little issues finding the place, even when parked by the bin shed we asked a lady who was there did she know of Bam Lodge and she hadnt heard of it. We were really glad you gave us the cleaners number and she explained exactly where it was. Hide

We really liked the property and the location. Our only issues were it stated towels would be provided but we only got 1 each for a 6 night stay for bathroom and hot tub use which wasnt good. We would liked to have had a few towels each, at least for the week. We also would have found a second set of keys useful, the property manual stated we wouldRead more be left 2 sets but we were only left 1. The hot tub also wasnt ready to use on the check in day which we would have liked to have known in advance. Hide
